Shit you should carry in the bush

So I was reading on another forum and came across an excellent post on some of the basic tools you should carry if you plan on wheeling, especially if you have an older vehicle thats prone to failure.

Spoiler!


the pictures didn't carry over so i suggest you go on the link below and read the article there.

on top of the list above, shackles and straps are definitely a great idea. you have to keep in mind that someone may come along who can give you a pull but they might not have the recovery equipment to help you.

feel free to add to this list.

In my eyes, a small tarp is invaluable.

A tarp is good, basic survival tack, because its so versatile.

ie. jeeps broken down in a muddy spot, lay the tarp on the ground and fixing it isn't so miserable an experience.

jeeps broken down and it starts to rain, prop the tarp up and fixing it again isn't so miserable.

when you're taking off lots of small bolts and nuts, they're much more difficult to lose when working on a white/blue tarp because of the high contrast compared to the ground.

jeeps broken down and it's getting dark, you have minimal light, work under the tarp and it will reflect the small amount of light back.

jeeps broken down and you can't fix it, you have a blanket to reflect heat back while you're spending the night.

jeeps broken down and you don't want to fix it, make a kite out of the tarp and go fly it.

A small magnetic dish also works wonders for working on your ride outside of a garage or driveway.

a bug out bag or go bag is a good idea too.

if you're stuck in the woods you'll atleast be able to sleep in your vehicle.

but should you choose to abandon it (which isnt recommended) then you'll need to be able to walk out and find help.

a good go-bag/bug-out-bag should be able to get you through atleast 72 hours of shit hits the fan. hopefully you'll be rescued by that time.


heres a good article on kits:
