First of all, the most important stuff: fishing tackle. I planned to bring a freshwater rod and reel, a saltwater rod and reel, and fly fishing gear. While packing I found my fly tying stuff and thought, “Am I going to bring this TOO?” when it occurred to me, I could bring just fly fishing tackle AND fly tying stuff and fish anywhere. Wishful thinking, I know.
Next most imporatant is computer / telephony stuff.
After electronics, shelter is most important.
What am i going to read while at repose in my tent? (Someone on FaceBook kindly informed me that Into the Wild is not a “how to” book.)
Miscellaneous camping truck:
Here’s the kitchen.
With electronics, shelter, cooking and reading sorted, I suppose I should bring some art supplies
My dad taught me to use a tool only for its proper function, so I’d better bring some tools.
Hmmmm….What am I forgetting? The potentially most crucial bit of stuff – the First Aid kit. I made three First Aid kits: van kit, camp kit, and day Kit. The van kit was most extensive with stuff for making casts, reattaching fingers, major stuff. The camp kit was pretty extensive too: one cast kit, ace bandages, some suture kits, gauze, rubbery bandage stuff, various OTC meds, Epy Pen, instant ice packs, ointments, etc. The day pack kit is meant to carry with me on day trips and patch myself back together well enought to get back to camp or van.
