We go alone, so my list is a bit different than some..
1.... Water, at least a gallon per person per day.. We carry 25 gallons
2.... Complete safety kit
3.... Tool kit, including tire repair kit, bungee cords, tiedown straps, axe, two shovels, hi-lift, compass ,etc
taking only the wrenches and sockets needed for the jeep. Take what you need and need what you take ;)
4.... Winch and extraction equipment
5.... Enough food for 5 days
6.... 2 spare tires, one mounted, one not mounted
7.... Clothing and hiking boots, for hot, and cold weather

I neglected to include in the tool kit, good topographical maps.. No need for cell phones though.. They don't work where we go..

While I I don't do any "hard core" trails. I do spend a lot of time out and about in the mountains and "remote" areas.

I take the following items with me regardless if i plan on spending only a few hours or a few days.

1. axe
2. shovel
3. maps
4. first aid kit (made my own)
5. tools
6. tire repair kit / air compressor
7. leather gloves
8. recover strap
9. camera (never know what you will see!)
10. power inverter (need to charge camera battery!)

I always keep a few things in my jeep that could be appropriate anytime
1. hand sanitizer
2. baby wipes (sometimes hand sanitizer just won't do)
3. kleenex / napkins (double as TP in a pinch)
4. phone charger
5. sunglasses
6. lint free cloth (clean sun glasses, phones, gps screens)
7. tire pressure gauge (check your pressure often!)
8. spare fuses.
9. lint roller (removes dog hair from seats/clothes. Especially important when making an good impression on the ladies :flowers:)

some of the areas i go to have pit toilets with no running water (tp is sometimes gone.:rolleyes: )
some campgrounds are not open year round and neither are the restrooms.

I'm looking at options for a cb radio (i often loose cell phone service).

I've seen/done
1. trees fall between going in and coming out of area.
2. provided directions to lost mountain bikers
3. go places and not seen signs of another person/vehicle all weekend long

I dont know about yall but try to allways bring someone to drag my winch line for me. :angel:

leppich_italy 07-06-2012 06:21 PM

nice lists everyone, to all the people just starting out i recommend learning how to use all the things you need to bring before you need them. examples- maps/compass, first aid kit, and any recovery gear. they don't do you any good if you don't know how to use them.

Safe Jeeping everyone

Sounds (and looks, from the pic) like you go to some pretty awesome places. How long are you planning your trips for if you're carrying 5 days worth? Is it 5 days or are you bringing extra, in case you get stranded somewhere?
