ant spray

Bug spray has been mentioned in the past but no one specifically called for Ant spray.
We have needed it at a couple of picnic tables..

Not much good unless you have something to inflate the tires. I always carry a pancake compressor (Porter Cable) and a calibrated air pressure gage. Of course, you guys with DPs have a compressor on board, so you don't need this.

Bailing wire, or it's equivalent. You don't need to carry much and if you ever need it, then it is worth it's weight in gold!

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this list over the years! I've successfully read from start to now and it should be required reading for newbs like me. It really opens your eyes to the many possibilities that one could be prepared for while traveling.

This might draw some criticism, but, why not.

  • Beer, wine or a form of alcohol in freezing climates, shine is on approved list.
  • Bacon, Eggs and English muffins or bread.
  • Chicken, ribs and steaks for protein.
  • Salmon, trout and assorted seafood for proper nutritional balance.
  • Lots of salad and veggies (can you tell I am a foodie)?
  • Toilet paper.
  • Full water tank.
  • Empty credit card.
  • Large imagination.
  • And finally... a positive attitude, one can accomplish almost anything with a great attitude (even if you are down)!
I know this doesn't really cover the essentials, but, is an interesting take on my favorite things. I really do carry a lot of tools, fluids, tapes, zippie ties and the like. So please don't rely on my list unless you may be going a short distance to a tailgate. Hope you got a chuckle.

What gauge wire is good for general purpose usage?

I want to also endorse a portable induction cooking unit. I use it inside to save propane, I'd rather use electricity I have paid for rather than propane I have paid for. Most come with a type of fridge magnet you can test pots and pans with so you know they will work with the induction technology. I have the Kuraidori Which I don't recommend as outside it is almost impossible to see the settings you have chosen. The unit itself works well, but frustrating in outside use. But overall, don't leave home without one.
