There are a lot of packing lists on crazyguyonabike.com.  Use the search feature, but you can start with mine at:

Just scroll down to "Pete's Packing List" and click it.  You might also try the "What Worked and What Didn't" section.  It isn't perfect and could probably be trimmed a bit, but is a starting point.  Remember that less is more :)

Also it help to remember that you can use the Postal Service both directions.  If you find you aren't using stuff send it home and if you miss something have it sent to you via general delivery.  I recommend going over everything once every week or two and sending stuff that you don't need home.
