Fishing is proper sensible preppery type stuff. I am a disgrace to preppers. But I am testing my jellybaby stash as we speak. 8-)

The roads are pretty bad and if you do end up getting stuck its hard to justify your reason for being on the roads as 'vegan mince for a feckin' princess'.

Tonight I've done the unthinkable I've stripped my car boot :shock:

And sat down and thought sensibly about what I need first aid kit has been drastically shrunk to a large Scandinavian bag from a holdall...
IMG_20190627_220708147_HDR.jpg
Basing it loosely on the British standard large car kit... Adding celox extra trauma dressings, tweezers, sterei strips, eyewash 20ml shots ,

Dumped the jetboil and rations (until winter sets in)

Reduced the tool kit to the basics screwdriver set spanners pliers (modern cars are unfixable roadside most times anyway) oil bulb kit... Tow rope, jump leads, fire extinguisher , high vis vests

Must have removed 25kg of "crap" the suspension looks far more relaxed now :/
