be back
2-Fuel
3-Food
4-High lift Jack
5-Flash light
6-Water
7-Lighter or something to make fire

Not in that order, but there are more things I always bring with me. Tools are a given, I always bring a knife/razor, and a gun with extra ammo depending where I am going

I'd like to add beer again, if I could. And a dog.

wvwoodsman 03-04-2012 03:07 PM

The one thing you all forgot , a firearm !

lovecheese 03-04-2012 03:09 PM

Why beer? Beer and driving does not mix... It's still illegal even off road.

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..

lovecheese 03-04-2012 03:25 PM

True. but not a must have. Rather pack water. Since beer dehydrates you.

RednekYJ 03-04-2012 03:32 PM

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

lovecheese 03-04-2012 03:35 PM

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

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

Boy I hate to sound like a cliche, but drinking a beer--responsibly--on some far flung forest service road in the wild wilderness is one of the last great American freedoms we have left...don't sell it short. It is a magnificent feeling.

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.

Frenz 03-04-2012 09:47 PM

Beer is Food. chocolate too.

spunebil 03-06-2012 05:28 AM

Ya only need two must have things!
BEER! ( In a cooler)
And a
SWISS ARMY KNIFE ;)
Everything else is a waiste of space for the Cooler and BEER! :):

Harrytop 03-12-2012 12:41 PM

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.

denisbaldwin 03-12-2012 01:45 PM

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.

1. Knowledge - Nothing else matters if you don't at least have the knowledge to use or apply what you brought.
2. Nice survival knife
3. Leatherman
4. Food/Water
5. Canvas Tarp
6. Basic Automotive Tool set
7. Vehical Retrieval Kit - Tow Straps, winch accessories, gloves
8. Stout - Make no mistake, the nutrional value of stout is astounding.
9. Cell phone
10. Shotgun - Personally I use a Kel-Tec 12Ga 14+1 26.1" Overal Length, shotguns are versitil for protection and hunting, by simply switching to slugs.

jr78racer 03-12-2012 07:51 PM

1. Cell phone
2. Map, compass, GPS if you have it
3. Tow straps, winch accessories

Preferably, toilet paper. Failing that, a detailed guide to identifying poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac, manzanillo, etc...

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