Good stuff.. I do intend on carrying a large majority of this stuff. I used to carry a spare set of socks back in the day.... That's great advice. My sister who was in the corp always said "number 1 rule, take care of your feet or you're useless".

Big sis always helping. A decade later and it still proves to be a great rule.


I do hang a trailer tongue box and I swear its already full with chains, ratchet straps etc.

Valk.....

You said it best.... Blister-city is not a place where you want to be heading!

If I had the money, I would wear a fresh pair of new socks everyday of my life like Jerry Lewis...

Telescopic magnetic pick-up tool, Zanefel or Tecnu poison ivy scrubs, eye wash cup ( if you can't find a hose & even if do wear safety glasses) are a couple of things I have on my truck. Good posts, the tow strap has been a life saver.

Tecnu is a big one for poison ivy. Always have my safety glasses and my ear phones. Tow straps are a big one, those came in VERY handy on thursday.

Just to add to the good ideas above, a basic set of good mechanics tools (Craftsman on sale) and a hi-vis vest plus a few traffic cones. If you don't need the cones but once in a blue moon, there are ones that collapse out there.

A weeks worth of microfiber underwear. The skimpy'er the better. No rash, no raw, no swamp ass. Yeah, boxers are "cool", but the micro fiber skivvies are pure awesomeness. (Might want to get more than a weeks worth if your single or dont have a laundry fairy that magically does laundry while your asleep/out of the house).

I didn't make a list on what you need with you on the road but what you need in your shop to stay on the road. Somehow after that the thread shifted to what you pack before your leave.

Make sure you have everything to be in D.O.T compliance around here they can basically run your business to the ground with all the fines.
