The Five Gallon Bucket Challenge

The confines of the challenge are a five gallon bucket (FBG), with lid and handle.

FGBs are incredible useful for a variety task.
- step stool - please be careful
- a place to sit and think about the problem at hand.

Starting supplies
- Duct tape
- electrical tape
- some bungees
- maybe a ratcheting tie down strap
- two wire coat hangers
- Rope
- small tarp

What's in your five gallon bucket?

I have pretty much all of the supplies you listed packed in a box inside one of the exterior compartments. But, I do like to keep a 5GB handy for stepping on and,, carrying the fish we catch to where i'm going to clean them.

Mine is actually a tool box right now, I grabbed a bunch of tools, cordless drill, measuring tape. Multi tester to work on the motorhome several weeks ago, I have since had shoulder surgery so my bucket is still a toolbox...lol

OTH maybe drink the beer and I could still put out the fire (slowly over time)...... I don't think the DW would go for it.

20' of Rhinoflex sewer hose, collapsed and coiled with end caps and a 90 degree adapter. I also use the bucket for mixing windshield wash. It is large enough for an extendable squeegee, and it keeps the bucket refreshened.

I have several buckets and also Tidy Cat Cat Litter buckets, many are dedicated to different tasks.
one is foot storage
one is car wash
one is currently "Spare"

One is electronics I rarley use spare coax and things like that.

Lots of "junque" in assorted pails.

My Red Home Depot bucket is used to store a small garden sprayer filled with windshield fluid, and a rag to wipe off the squeegee. The bucket has also been used to haul sewage to the pit toilet when we are in National/State Forest camping and the "full" light comes on.
