takeprice, your right on....and me bets that's not going to be enough in no time!

My list fits right in line with what you guys are listing, but when I'm traveling I also carry:
electirc drill
set of drill bits
extra extension cord
tarp instead of cardboard
WD-40 and other lubs
set of old clothes for grubby work

I do need to look into the fuse situation though. Also need to get some engine hoses. Had to replace the small one at the top back side of the radiator, it comes off the front of the engine, on the road. Lucky there was a NAPA close by. $10 for a 6 inch hose.

Well I carry all that stuff too, except I forgot to list them. My milwaukie 1/4 drive 18V micro Drill is the slickest thing. I gave it to myself for my birthday last year, and it works perfectly, even has a little light when you pull the trigger.

Did I mention that by "too many tools" I meant that they take up an entire bin?

I just hate having to move the table saw out to get to the rotary hammer......

Ok you really have too many tools. I have thought about taking the table saw, but it just takes up too much space. Now if I was a builder or something I could then see it. I am going to take the 1/2 18V Delta drill I have next time we go on extended trip so I have some heavy duty drilling available. And on Monday, I am going to purchase a 12 Ton Bottle Jack and some 12 T jack stands I will carry, but that is the end of the tools for me.

I hope our H20 pump never fails. It has a perfect record at 10 years, and we always use the pump, no city water hookup ever.

Maybe I need a spare, but I don't think it will be a 5.7.
