We always worry about having enough pots to fill the kiln, then get to the packing point and begin to think that we have enough for two firings worth, then end up with about half a load extra. This of course is no bad thing, just frustrating as you try to decide which pieces you would like to see through more than another. Also it can end up with the front being really tightly packed as a result of trying to squeeze that extra piece in, not necessary a good thing.
