4x4 Pack List

Post by JMM » Thu Mar 27, 2008 11:19 am

Some things to consider packing on your next trip.



WVJC - 4x4 Pack List

Packing everything listed on the link above would mean you would probably need a full size vehicle to even think about it, there are some good ideas of some choices of what to pack next time your out.

Well, with you being the WVJC President, I nominate you to carry all this stuff. As our leader it should be your responsibility to look after all of us. :D

Im not sure whats in it really? I got it from a Geocache at Coopers Rocks and I never did look inside, its just small enough I put it in the first aid kit. I figure if something ever happens and somebody is screaming for a snake bite kit I have one... after that its out of my hands.


I would say a bee sting kit would be better... or something to put on your legs from that awful stuff thats along the trails at Swiss (I think its called "stinging nettle"?) wvHeep94 and I got into some yellow jackets walking down a trail and when we ran from the yellow jackets we ran right into a bunch of the stinging nettle. Bad stuff...
