I carry a fairly simple kit sold by "Adventure Medical", but supplemented with my personal trama kit from back in the days when I was paid to get shot at on occasion...It's still a fairly compact setup and if I can't take care of it in the field then it's serious enough that my SPOT will let me wife know where the body is.

One important thing in my opinion for first aid is not not forget "comfort" items like motion sickness tabs (given them away many times, not needed them myself) and for me eye drops are a huge thing, carry a couple of little bottles.


Thanks for starting a good discussion.

Oh yeah I agree. The boo boo kit is all about alleviating things that would make you miserable and spoil your trip. :2_thumbsup:

I'll get the next parts up as soon as I can. Hoping to find time for the next installment this week. Life, kids, work, too many projects. You know the drill. :biggrin:

heh heh. . .in all seriousness, though, it should have been:
"How much for the young, PRETTY women?". .
Everything else is excellently put. I mean, hey, that could be a fairly important thing given there's always the next morning, and 'coyote ugly' syndrome may only add to the injuries. Just say'n.

My doc prescribes these for me but they can be bought over the counter in most drug stores, very convenient and easy to stash in a first aid kit, great for flushing gurf out of the old eyeball.

well, in all seriousness and considering the rugged image the mighty DR lents to its heroic rider,
a few of condom blisters may well have their place in that long range pharmacy kit :s_cool

Ah I see you missed my thread in this topic about my Adventure Vest.

Well my friend I have the situation covered. topic17404.html

You will see in the second photo there is a designated pouch for cigarettes and condoms.

:drinks: :rofl:
