A different post got me to thinking about what I take with me when I go off road or just camping. It has been awhile since I went through my stuff so I need add/remove a few items but here's what I do:

I keep a plastic trunk in my garage with (see list below) most stuff in it:













The list:

1 cast iron BBQ grill grate
1 newspaper for fire starting
1 cutting board
1 pack Diamond Strike-A-Fire
1 small box of matches
2 butane lighters
1 box waterproof matches

1 pack foil grilling trays
1 pack foil casserole pans
1 pack foil cake pans
1 pack paper plates
1 enameled coffee pot
1 pot/pan handle cozy
2 steak knives
2 lexan forks

2 lexan spoons
2 plastic spatulas
2 wine bottle openers

1 pot scubber
1 coffee/tea press
1 jar instant coffee

1 MSR pocket rocket stove
1 MSR canister stove fuel
1 MSR black-lite basic cookware kit
1 Guyot Deigns Micro Bites utensil kit
1 plastic plate
1 polycarbonate mug w/insulating sleeve

I have some of my hiking/camping gear in there. I take a bunch of other stuff which I'll post up shortly. If anybody has any ideas or suggestions of things to add, delete, exchange, etc I'd be glad to hear it.

to the OP... a little container of bleach is a good thing to have. About 10 drops will purify water. You have enough gear to boil water, which is better. Bleach is another option.

All in all that is a pretty cool "go" bag. I have one packed similarly (more stuff) for hurricanes. Enough water for five days (at least a gallon per person per day) is a lot of water - the bleach is a back-up.

That looks like a pretty good list of stuff. Multiple ways to start a fire is always good. Tin foil, trash bags, bailing wire, para cord, and duck tape all have a thousand uses both on the trail and for camping. Also might want to add a closable container/bottle for water. Flares are also a good thing to carry. If you cant start a fire with a flare you arent going to start it with anything. A multitool would also be a good addition to your gear. Looks like a pretty good list though.

And stashed in a hidden spot in the Jeep is $300 cash and a spare credit card.

Wow, I don't think I ever cataloged it before. That is a lot of shit I carry around. Amazingly, aside from the more extreme first aid stuff, I have actually used almost all of that stuff from time to time, both on the trail and just driving around on the street.

Adding to this cornucopia of crap, when I go off-roading I add:
  • 2x Telescoping Tent Poles (under rear seat)
  • Hi-Lift Jack (on rear tire carrier)
  • Full-Size Round-Nose Shovel (on rear tire carrier)
  • Recovery Bag (in cargo area) with:
    • 3x D-Shackles
    • 10k Snatch Block
    • Two Tree Straps
    • Base for Hi-Lift Jack
    • Hi-Lift Repair Kit
    • Hi-Lift "Lift-Mate" Tire Hooks
    • Leather Gloves
    • Winch Line Safety Weight
  • Box of fluids and spares (in cargo area):
    • 2x Folding Wheel Chocks
    • 4qt Engine Oil + Filter
    • 4qt Transmission Fluid
    • 2qt Gear Oil
    • 1pt Brake Fluid
    • PB Blaster
    • WD40
    • Ether Starting Fluid Spray Can
    • 4x Large Trash Bags
    • 6x 1-Gallon Zip-Loc bags
    • Large C-Clamp
    • Spare U-Joints
    • Old set of Ball Joints
    • Old set of Poly Performance Tie-Rod TRE's
    • Old Drag-Link TRE
    • Serpentine Belt
    • Old Brake Lines (soft lines)
    • 1ea Old Front & Rear Shocks
    • LED Shop Light
As I upgrade/replace parts, if the old ones have any service left in them they get added to the kit as appropriate. I'm also thinking of adding one of those pesticide spray pumps so I can fill it with water to wash out my radiator if it gets packed with mud on the trail.

After all this time typing, I realize nobody's going to read this damn thing anyway. They're just going to look at a long list of crap and say "that dude's crazy." Ain't it the truth.

I think I'll be adding some duct tape, para cord & a small container of bleach.

This box started as a convenient way of making sure I had what I needed should I get stuck over night while offroading and items to make camping more enjoyable should I forget something while packing.

One time I went camping & forgot salt & pepper. For the record, steak is edible with out salt & pepper but is much better with it.

Here are some items that I just leave in my Jeep. (I will take them out if I'm just driving around town without the top or the soft top on.)





1 - fire extinguisher
1 - Hi-Lift handle all kit
1 - Hi-Lift off road kit

Not pictured are:
1 - small 12V air compressor
1 - flashlight
1 - pair of leather gloves

I also always take my Hi-Lift jack, a 9mm handgun, a cooler with water and other beverages, snacks, a bag of canned goods from my pantry, and my day hike pack. (I'll post up about the contents of my pack soon.)

Even though I have a winch, the Hi-Lift jack and off road kit can be used as a winch should I need to:



The canned goods are for emergency use. If I don't use them, they go back in my pantry when I get home.

Even though I have a full size spare I need to add a tire repair kit. I think I'll pick one up this weekend.

(I posted this on 3 different kinds of forums so it will be interesting to see what develops.)

Here is the remainder of what I leave in my Jeep (glove box, console, in the back):





1 - set of jumper cables
1 - can of spray-on sun screen
1 - bottle of ibuprofen
1 - power inverter
1 - spare sunglasses
1 - pack spare fuses & fuse puller

Some items were already listed above.

Notice the air compressor has a nice carry bay that hold it and the extra pressure gauge and filling accessories (nozzles, ball needles, and bicycle tire adapter). Even if you happen to drive a little car like a hybrid Prius you should keep an air compressor similar to this one in your vehicle. Not only has this one saved my bacon a number of times, I have used it to fill up friends and coworkers tires on many occasions. Plus I use it to fill my float tube when fishing.

The ibuprofen has also proved invaluable on many occasions.

In the summer it's not uncommon for me to go from Las Vegas @ 2,000' elevation, 115 degree daytime high & 90 degree overnight low to camp @ 8,500' elevation, 78 degree daytime high & 45 degree overnight low. This kind of change makes the air compressor (and ibuprofen) a requirement for me.

Wow, I don't think I ever cataloged it before. That is a lot of shit I carry around. Amazingly, aside from the more extreme first aid stuff, I have actually used almost all of that stuff from time to time, both on the trail and just driving around on the street.

Adding to this cornucopia of crap, when I go off-roading I add:
  • 2x Telescoping Tent Poles (under rear seat)
  • Hi-Lift Jack (on rear tire carrier)
  • Full-Size Round-Nose Shovel (on rear tire carrier)
  • Recovery Bag (in cargo area) with:
    • 3x D-Shackles
    • 10k Snatch Block
    • Two Tree Straps
    • Base for Hi-Lift Jack
    • Hi-Lift Repair Kit
    • Hi-Lift "Lift-Mate" Tire Hooks
    • Leather Gloves
    • Winch Line Safety Weight
  • Box of fluids and spares (in cargo area):
    • 2x Folding Wheel Chocks
    • 4qt Engine Oil + Filter
    • 4qt Transmission Fluid
    • 2qt Gear Oil
    • 1pt Brake Fluid
    • PB Blaster
    • WD40
    • Ether Starting Fluid Spray Can
    • 4x Large Trash Bags
    • 6x 1-Gallon Zip-Loc bags
    • Large C-Clamp
    • Spare U-Joints
    • Old set of Ball Joints
    • Old set of Poly Performance Tie-Rod TRE's
    • Old Drag-Link TRE
    • Serpentine Belt
    • Old Brake Lines (soft lines)
    • 1ea Old Front & Rear Shocks
    • LED Shop Light
As I upgrade/replace parts, if the old ones have any service left in them they get added to the kit as appropriate. I'm also thinking of adding one of those pesticide spray pumps so I can fill it with water to wash out my radiator if it gets packed with mud on the trail.

After all this time typing, I realize nobody's going to read this damn thing anyway. They're just going to look at a long list of crap and say "that dude's crazy." Ain't it the truth.
Wow thats a pretty crazy list LOL. I have to admit, i did read a good part of it...maybe I was just bored...idk. I'm working towards carrying a lot of those things in my Jeep as well. All that stuff is just soo expensive to do all at once! lol, thus I'm trying to buy some of it here and there between mods. The interesting part is going to be trying to fit all this shit in a 2 door...with the back seat in

OK, here is the last of my stuff (for now). This is my day hike pack that stays ready and goes with me whenever I go out, even if I'm just doing some geocaching with friends. The pack is a Camelbak with a 3L water reservoir and insulated hose kit. I highly recommend the insulation kit. It makes a huge difference in the temperature of the drinking liquid, and I commonly hike in 110+ degree weather.





1 backpack
1 pair Leki hiking poles
1 Buck Nighthawk sheathed knife
1 9mm handgun
1 emergency rain/cold clothing bag
1 emergency sleeping bag (2 persons) bag
1 emergency supply/tool bag
1 water filter kit w/chlorine dioxide tablets
1 can 50spf spray on sun screen
1 tube 50spf cream face sun screen
1 tube 50spf chapstick
1 bottle Visine-A
1 Nalgene flask full w/Scotch
1 compass w/signal mirror

The emergency rain/cold clothing bag:



1 Sea To Summit 8L waterproof bag
1 Marmot rain jacket
1 pair Columbia rain pants
1 pair waterproof socks
1 pair gaiters
1 pair gloves
1 microfleece neck gaiter
1 microfleece skull cap
1 mosquito proof head net

The emergency sleeping bag and supply/tool kit:



1 Sea To Summit 6L waterproof bag
2 Adventure Medical Kit 2 Thinsulate emergency sleeping bags
(You can see I am experimenting with vacuum packing.)

1 Sea To Summit 2L waterproof bag
1 roll toilet paper
1 simple first aid kit
1 bottle Pepto & ibuprofen
1 handful of various fire starting materials (I like to try different kinds while camping.)
1 box storm proof matches
1 magnesium fire starter w/micro-Leatherman
1 Ultimate Survival Technologies Sparkie Fire Starter
1 lens cloth
1 spare boot lace
2 spare tie down straps
1 small deck of cards
1 personal pack towel
1 pack of bathing wipes
1 can opener

I'm putting on of the can openers in my off road box since I noticed I didn't have on in there already. The bathing wipes are new to me and I'll give them a try to see how hey work out. I'm also thinking they may need to be vacuum packed.

Last but definitely not least is my Leatherman Skeletool:



This Leatherman and I are inseparable. I never leave home without it.
