    Default What Do you Bring

    OK well about every offroad website has a thread like this for newbies and experianced both to look at. Basicly what do you bring when you go wheeling? whether a day trip or a weekend trip, what do you bring different for a day trip compared to a weekend trip, and why do you bring what you bring?

    Rags
    Things to catch/clean up Fluids
    Hand Cleaner
    Tire Repair Kit
    110V Inverters (mounted in both Jeeps)
    Matches/Fire Starter


    Things I Grab:

    Water-enough for all people for the trip (+2 days if going 'outback')
    Rain Gear
    Heavy Shirt/Jacket (Standard in the CJ)
    Gloves Hat (ditto)
    Snacks/Lunch
    Toys/other stuff to occupy kids
    Small Cooler w/ice -Keeps drinks cold and Ice can be used for a Cold Pack

    As long as the people remain armed,
    government knows that it cannot rule over the people by force.
    Those who stand in defiance of unconstitutional laws
    do so out of duty, honor, oath and love of country.

    Always overpack for what you are doing.
    Always have a 'walk-out' plan as well. Case in point, there is a rolled XJ on Flagpole this past weekend. Owner had to walk out.

    I agree with all of the above, plus gun, and enough ammo to keep the un dead off my butt ...Sorry I was off a little there, I do live in the DC area..

    On the A-team, DMV team, we would bring a lot of stuff.

    One was a plan of what to do when ________ happen.
    You fill in the blank.

    A plan of where you are going a contact plan on how to get a hold of you or to get help. Plus the gear..

    Nice question Fred.

    Forgot to add map of the area you are moving in. A gps is nice but the batteries can fail you.
