California **New** Tool pack/survival gear thread

Recommended Posts

The first "tool pack thread" took less than three pages from going from looking at and discussing tool packs to senseless idiotic chatter! It really is sad that a few of the immature punks on here just love to excercise their right to "free speech".

Oh well, I'm riding the stripped down version of my Beta in Hemet tomorrow. I'll be bringing a compact waist tool pack, and small camelback with MYSPOT in tracking mode.

Afterwords I can post some pics of my stuff all laid out. It's funny that Krannie mentioned the "green Powerbars" he found in his pack. I just found some stale expired beef jerky/nuts and half eaten, moldy Powerbar in my stuff!!

This is actually a good thread if it can stay on track. It may even save someones life. Thanks Krannie for the reminder to us to go through our traveling gear in a while. I ride solo a huge majority of the time. So this is good info.

How about we start over and keep it on track? I'm really interested to see some cool ideas. I'm actually going to buy a Leatherman after getting the idea from another poster (dust devil, I think).

Well, it is about riding. Just seeing what the Southern CA guys take with them for repair/survival.

Make no mistake, it IS the tool section.

B)

Just to state the obvious, both Bosch & Kranny are watching every word you guys say like hawks. They profess to be above it all & so cerebral but they're hanging on every word!

People come from all over to hear this stuff! We here in California knows how to party. Them is good!

You're right on my man! I'm beat after my ride today. Rather than list the stuff, I will go the lazy route and take pictures tomorrow of my tools laid out. Again Krannie, thanks for the reminder to sift through all of our crap we lug along with us.

It's a trip that most of us will rarely, if ever, have to use what we bring. It's that one time you are 50 miles from from the truck and need something you don't have.

When I was a smoke jumper, I used to just have the main meal and heating element in my pack to save weight. As far as a cell phone, I think it's a no-brainer to have. In fact, after this weekend...I'm gonna start carrying it even while racing again. Woulda come in handy

The reason I don't carry my cellphone is, where I would need it, it usually doesn't work, and if you fall on it, it's dead anyway, and it costs $500 to replace......

I carry my old cell phones... two of them. Even without a plan all cell phones dial 911 and the signal is stronger than using regular mode. Leave you good phone in the car... but charge up your old phone and toss it in the pack.

I hear that. I break phones like its going out of stlye. Bought an otter box for $40 and I couldn't break this thing if I tried. Service is hit or miss but I'd rather have it just in case.

silver space blankets, H2o proof matches and a signal mirror will get you found by us. Leave the social networking devices, i.e.. Spots off until you need it, ACR makes a much better unit that WILL get you found by us. Expensive upfront but cheaper than a Spot after a couple years.

Good thread Ill add pics of my kit as well.

I just went to the 'drawer of misfit phones' and pulled out the smallest one to charge up......

These are great and make it so you dont have to carry a core remover in the pack, plus it is right where you need it.

Did you mean that you just got the 32mm tire iron? The 450 x is 22 front, 32 rear 12/13 rimock.

What model of the charge? I have the Ti one but have been carrying the ALX lately.

I wouldnt bother with the fix a flat can, extra bolts/nuts, siphon hose.
