In addition to the normal off roading kit for those venturing into the wilderness for a day, what additional or luxury kit do you carry?

I have my sustinance kit, this comprises two 12v kettles, petrol stove, cups, coffee, frying pan and saucepan, and my cooler box. Inside the cool box is the ice packs covered by a layer of polystyrene foam to stop things freezing, milk, bacon, eggs, sausages, mushrooms, tin of tomatoes, salt, and a number of other niceties. Do i care if i get stuck? no, put the kettle on petal while i get cooking.

Not really a wilderness up here in North East Scotland, but while thier is snow around allways a small cooker kettle cups tea suger milk and water, no real problem on getting stuck it is other stupid censored who go out with no idea how to drive in snow and on less than 2"" of snow block the roads so end up in a trafic jam sitting for houres sometimes, becaous of stupid mad councils not prepiered and allways say next year it will be better, (but it never happens).
Rant over


Used to be HGV driver going all over Europe so allways had tea making equipment. Smile

If I was going out for a day? Few cans of coke and a pack of crisps.

When on an overland trip I wouldn't have thought food and drink were optional extras - more like necessities.

Optional extras are passengers and surplus to requirements

How far away is the nearest shop??????

the choccy and bickys are optional , as they are not essential .just a luxury item .
as for drinks you can get by with water , but some times a can of coke just hits the spot Very Happy

Has been the best part of 400 klicks for me to the nearest shop on a trip so pack food - plenty of it

Luxury would be reading matter. Hate being without a book or two

Other essential - loo paper
