Someone on another board told me "any tool you use from your tool chest in the garage you need that tool in your Rover".

Offroading leads to things breaking and thus as the Marines would put it, a second echelon maintenance kit is necessary.

To wit.... This is an excellent list.
Except for the addition of bailing wire. It's an Oklahoma thing.

Beer, that's all I carry. Everybody else carries the other stuff. I carry the important stuff.

Everybody thinks I'm crazy and makes fun of me or talks **** to me for not carrying/bringing any gear BUT at the end of the day, everybody loves me.... :drink1:

Dude, one time I traded beer for a battery when mine went dead.

I had this girlfriend that I used to trade beer for...nevermind, well, OK, I used to have this girlfriend that had to take medication for a mental disorder and for a sleeping disorder..well, anyways, the medication would effect her memory and we we used to bang away, then she would take her medication and forget we already had sex, so we'd do it all over again. She was kind of freaky but when she was "high" on her meds, she was even freakier.

Perhaps I shouldn't be allowed on LRO when I'm drinking... :beer:

Jesus H.! You've had way too many road sodas, or couch cocktails... whatever you're drinking. Got any left over Xanax, Ativan or Wellbutrin? You might want to take some.
