Vehicle Survival Kit (How’s Yours?)

I won’t go over the same common sense lists of materials one should have in their vehicle during Winter travel or anytime you venture off the roadways or deep away from others. These two sites provide those lists: Jungle Training & Safety One International.

No doubt you can provide a dependable cache of materials, but here, I wanted to simply remind you to have the equipment updated (batteries), reachable (not buried in back where you won’t reach it once in a ditch) and have it organized for a real life event. Oh, where in the hell is the duct tape and bungee’s on these lists? Re water containers, remember water containers my rupture in extreme cold, so use a container that can suffer the cold extremes. Extra clothing should be with you whenever you go fishing…right? Go under once and you will remember to have a change of clothing.

An additional thing: in extreme cold, ice in the guides, severe winds….all very cool to be out there waving the rod. But, do you really know how you function in these conditions? Do not waste your core body heat while outdoors. Dress with clothing that can handle the cold. Store the cotton hoodie and cheap cotton stocking cap. To start stumbling back toward your rig and feel that desperate, fumbling feeling is unsettling.

Be prepared once back to the rig to find your keys (what are you going to do if you lost them…a spare?), to open your rig up and start the engine and crank up the heat. You will know if you over did it if you stumble/fumble about in a panicked state. If so, assess then what to improve upon. Clothing, location, duration? Or, forgo the deep freeze times?

Duct Tape: How To Reposition Duct Tape (Soap & Slide)

How to freely move duct tape to get the correct position: “Get a small spray bottle and fill with water.  Next add a small amount of liquid dish soap (about 1 tsp/ liter).  Mix.  Spray this lightly on the surface you are going to apply your tape to….” DuctTapeNation  (Less Duct Tape and more or is it less fabric?)

“Use this simple rule: If it’s not stuck and it’s supposed to be, duct tape it!….Duct tape sticks best to itself (if this happens to you, throw the piece away and start over). Duct tape sticks worst to wet stuff.”  DuctTapeGuys

Duct Tape (Must Have For First Aid Emergency Care and apparently many other reasons)

duct-tape

ductape_1How far back does duct tape factor into your outdoor experience? When I was young, my dad did the setup of camp and the maintenance of camp through torrential rainstorms and winds. This was pre-light weight tarps and bungy cords. This was heavy canvas tarps, rope and burdened tent poles bearing the weight of pools of water on the canvas tarps. Somehow my ever resourceful dad started incorporating duct tape into camp repairs in the late 50’s/early 60’s. The inevitable tears and rips were repaired with silver duct tape. Silver duct tape wrapped and covered all manner of damage..even torn Converse hi-tops and low quarters. Now, you can get duct tape in different colors and widths. A must have for an emergency kit and apparently used for all manner of issues.
