No Kidding, there is a few dookie piles marked by some cut off underwear I had to leave behind.

denisbaldwin The stuff I try to remember when I go out:

Mechanics gloves
Iphone with Extra cell charger
At least two tow/yank ropes
Basic Craftsman Tool set
Extra Gas Can
Extra Water Can
Tire gauge
Jumper cables
AAA card
A second pair of comfortable shoes and socks


Everything else is nice to have but the above list has saved my butt quite a few times.

Harrytop The firearm is not what I take on the trail, it's what I take everywhere. Like my wallet, cell phone and pocket knife.
As far as a beer, I'm not sure about that. I've got friends that can think past their next one but for me water and if I need a tasty drink give me a soda.
Each to his own.
Just don't expect me to stick around if your a moron.

To be perfectly honest... A whole friggin can of American brew isn't going to send you off the side of the road... But I repeat this constantly to my friends: There will be absolutely NO consumption of alcohol in my rig, regardless of whether or not you are of age, drinking responsibly, etc. etc. My rig, my rules.

lovecheese HAHA. After being in Germany three years... All American beer is water.

Solar blanket is great too. Compact and perfect if you get stranded.

RednekYJ That's why you bring coors light. If it was any closer to water you'd be in a boat.

THe other stuff I agree with.
It is not but if you are staying over night at a ohv park or doing some kind of expedition style travel where you stop drving at night.. then beer is good for that time period between sun down and sun rise..
