I did pretty much the same yesterday, except I did take my camera, and took it out at start to take first pic and realised battery was flat, d'oh!

I check everything else, but I forgot to check that!

I did far worse! I set off for a week's Munroing last spring (2008). It was a week of superb weather and great photographic light and I forgot to take my camera! :( That was also the week I did An Teallach so some superb photos were missed there!

But at least mine doesn't need batteries :)
