My goodness that list is a bit ridiculous. My kind of self reliance is a bit different. If I'm planning on changing a water pump on the side of the road, perhaps I should t go places that I go.

I bring emergency supplies. Nothing more nothing less. No need to be changing all kinds of crazy stuff..

-BLS Medical kit (sometimes)
-Oil
-Spare fuel
-recovery equipment
-Water and MRE
-Blanket
-Basic hand tool set
-off road jack (also useable on road )
-flash light
-ABC Extinguisher
- Digital (offline) and paper maps of all areas I travel when away from civilization
- Maybe a few small items here and there.

This stuff is truly amazing. I use it to weatherproof coaxial cable connectors on antenna towers. It fuses to itself but not to the cable, so it can be removed easily without any sticky adhesive residue. I usually go over it with a few wraps of Scotch 33 or 88 for outdoor applications.

That stuff wasn't around when I did that kind of work. I always back taped(upside down electrical tape) before installing the the butyl tape and 3 wraps of Scotch 33+.

I have some of this now, it is amazing how well it works and seals stuff up. Tried to use it to seal a transmission cooler line over Memorial weekend(Monday of all days) but it didn't seal. I attribute that more to operator error than the tape though.

Tugly, I finally got around to adding more of your excellent suggestions to the list, including this X-Treme tape and the Lever Nuts and IDC connectors.

The list has been edited again today, longer than ever now. It is beyond what I or anyone else might carry en masse, but it is intended to incorporate everyone's idea of what would be great to have on hand to be self reliant. Obviously, this will mean different things to different people, based on past experiences, which all differ.

Yet it is instructive, for me at least, to see all of the possibilities on one page. I probably would never have thought of some of the things you guys have added. Thanks for the suggestions. For new readers to the thread, have a look at the original post, and please add your thoughts as well.

You people kill me.

If you want to be miserable driving anywhere while never taking the opportunity to actually ENJOY your trip because of paranoia, you may as well be miserable just buying one of these and road-tripping with it:

At least with the correct crane setup, you could handle an engine replacement on the side of the road once you took the hood off......

That truck might actually work, but it needs two more doors, just in case we need to bring a live tuner along for the trip.

If the hydraulics for the crane are from a PTO, we may need to bring a diesel-powered hydraulic pump as a backup.

Smart thinking on the diesel, as that saves us from carrying two types of fuels. I'll bet that Miller Bobcat on the truck has a diesel Kubota as well.

Good Lord!!! I just looked at the updated list again! Whenever I do travel a long distance I do go prepared, but I'd have to hook up a trailer to haul everything on that list with me. Just curious, but is anyone actually carrying everything on this comprehensive list around with them?

I doubt it. I made (and am still making) the list to be as comprehensive and all encompassing as possible, just to explore the possibilities. Tugly had a great idea about a star rating system, which I've interpreted as a short trip versus long trip versus full timing scenario. It will take more group think to actually make specific star ratings, so I just made the sub lists into a higher to lower priority order. Feel free to comment on priorities that you think are most to least important.

Hmmm, that looks like my truck:



I take it on lots of road trips and I'm not miserable or paranoid. Guess I have to add a crane and welder.

Awright, that's it. I'm inspired now. Not quite ready for the crane, but let's talk about that System One rack as configured on a UTILITY Bed, with what could possibly be Explorer Rails that can also accommodate a Pace Edwards Bed Locker.

Folks, I don't know if you recognize what LandMobile just posted, but that is a very unusual and not normally seen configuration for a System One rack system. In particular, he is using the angled joints on a 49" wide straight base, which makes the rack narrower than 48" for sheet materials, but good enough for long boards, pipes, and ladders.

Chris, we need to talk. I need more details please.

the first time, they attempted break-in by punching out my door lock. the second and third time they were successful at robbing me. two new batteries and a stolen matching spare later, i'm keeping my cab and bed empty until i'm stationed/living somewhere calmer… a place i can leave the damn keys in the ignition...
