To make your experience a good one, please follow the basic "rules of the road" . One of the first is to tell others where you are going and when you expect to return. Another is to go along with at least one other.
One other very good recommendation is to talk with other experienced Jeepers. Ask them about what they carry along on trips. Lists of what to carry vary to say the least, but you need to think about how you will get yourself out of a jam when you get into one. Broken parts and getting stuck are part of the Jeeping thing. Go prepared and those experiences will be good ones. Go UNPREPARED and the reverse is also true.
May you have Happy Trails.
