Cash. Because break downs occur when you least expect it, and there may be only have one repair shop in town, who won't take plastic.

Cash is king.
You never know when and where a crisp $100 bill may help out.
Might be teh "make or break" factor that gets you a start to where/what you need.

But don't carry too much.
Might be the end of you...

Mmm just took a trip to Idaho and traveled by myself so took things I might need to fit the road I traveled. A wool blanket that doubled as a seat cover. Can hide a gun under it and it has many other uses. Hand towels for those clean up jobs and emergency toilet paper use ( if you drive highway 20 look for Jim mountian near Burns)

Two coffee containers, a spotting scope with a window mount, extra gloves

Good tunes you live by, music is the butter on the bread.

Two pair of glasses, tinted and normal


Your teeth

Riley to Burns it rolling road with gentle ups and downs animal will be lots of cattle and a few antelope. Trucks move fast but not much traffic. Beautiful view at time and sometimes just sagebrush. I took two canteens but never used them to drink. It's 120 miles from Bend to Burns so any medical problems will take time. Lots of cattle.

Audio books, extra pair of sunglasses, baby wipes, more water. Cash, always cash. Ive also found a small (1/4-1/2 inch) stack of post it notes and a pencil (mechanical, 1.0 lead) to be handy. Nice to be able to jot stuff down in a hurry if needed. Thick lead is handy for ogres in a hurry.

2 cans of fix-a- flat.

( There is no shoulder on most of Hwy 20 east of Bend. )

A pop up canopy if you have space for it.

Twice as many blankets as you think you need.

5 gallon jug of water.

Work gloves.

A hat.

My fuel tank is 37 gallon and I have an L tank of another 100 in the back. Fuel was 40 cents a gallon more from Bend to Ontario and 25 cents more than home in Payette. It's pump your own in Idaho so the blue towels are good. I buy fuel knowing east runs a lot higher than here but keep extra just in case.

Thanks Terry, I forgot I covered my face with my hat in the emergency.

I am kinda nuts so I figure by the milage how much fuel do I need to get home. My truck is real good on fuel but if you can't find some you are stuck. Enough to get home from where ever I am, that's my spare fuel.

No matter when I leave the house I set up a layer system of needs. What I carry on me for where I am going changes with the distance I travel I build my needs by what it takes to get home.

Get me home bag is key to my personal body needs along with clothing for the season. It's built on distance from home I will travel and time it would take.

Vehicle is my moving home, it carries my needs for every day I will be gone and depending on possible changes like weather or political change I take the tools needed for possible repairs. I may carry spare transportation like a motorized bicycle if I thought the political climate might shut vehicles down. Fuel for it with it getting 200 mpg and I can get my fat ass home.

I assess every journey before I take it with what will I lose if the rig breaks down and I have to leave it. The really important stuff I can carry, the rest is just the cost of travel.

I always take along a torque wrench and sockets to check my lug nuts specially if I drag a trailer along, farm tight just ain’t good enough. Also nice to know you have a two foot long steel bar if the need should arise. A can of wasp spray ain’t a bad idea either, never know when wasps my attack.

I'd up that to TWO credit cards.

someone somewhere is going to snare your number and your card will be SHUT DOWN!

Have a second card. I use a money belt, the kind that fits under your clothes over your bladder. you can buy them at AAA.

extra booolets for whatever boomstick you are carrying. Don't forget your CCW.

don't bring all 100 dollar bills. There are some places where they can't make change!!!!!!!!!!!

don't forget your meds and be sure your prescription bottle has enough pills for the trip or a refill at a wallgreens or cvs..

I would only use a credit card if the rig breaks down, I never use it anywhere but Costco.

Majority of cash is twenties but keep $100s in my sock.

2 pieces of id, ccw and drivers lic. Kept in different pockets.

I don't take any prescription meds, see first on the list to understand.

Nearest Costco around you ?
4 miles away to Costco, membership card or I wouldn't own a credit card in my name. I buy money cards for business on the net but rarely buy things and even then have someone order for me and have it shipped to them.

At a filling station a few miles into Oregon, ( lakeview)and am wondering what PUC Diesel is.

For me a map of where my CHL is respected. No respecty? No getty me money. You can assume there are parts of this country I'll never visit, or visit again. Now the PRK has a chance once it breaks up and the lefties are stuck on their own fugged up little island of lalaland.

I've always held the opinion that a state isn't worth visiting unless they aren't on my multi state ccw, Florida & Utah!!

With the exception of business I had in Oregon this morning.

it might be on my Utah but it's not on my Florida ccw.

Brought my Colt 45 acp commander and my std carry sign p229 40SW.

In Idaho at the moment so out of that California wanna be state (Oregon)...

Brought Mr yeti full of California groceries so I'm avoiding fast food of Idaho.

Saw some real pretty sights so far but imgur isn't working on my phone lately so can't post them sorry to say..

Have truck accessories to buy here tomorrow and then meeting with realty professionals tomorrow..

I'm gonna get out of Commiefornia if it kills me!!!

Florida is a great gun state and offers reciprocity to states that honors their CCW. Same for our primary home in KY.

Your issue with Florida likely starts with your own home state.

I am still looking to get out of Oregon but getting my house ready for sale is a big job. Idaho will be my first choice but not set on moving there. Friends from high school live there and say the states filling up with kalifornicators and orgunians. Won't be long before house prices make the move too costly.

May end up buying property and building a trailer court for folks that don't want ties to any state.

So glad that you made it out of Oregon !

Ahhh thanks for the education...

Found diesel #2 and Diesel #1 as well at a pump with a few handles side by side, @ 3.199 per.

Don't know what the #1 is used for..

Says CFPP = cold filter plugging point.

Took a pic but as usual imgur isn't working.

I know two tire shops that charge an extra $100 to pull and replace a tire that's been filled with Fix-a-Flat or Slime. They also trash the tire and you buy a replacement unless tire(s) on opposite side of axle are 50% worn or more. Have three Michelin LTX tires from my 3/4 ton diesel where over years have cut sidewall on one hopping curbs, storm drains, etc. All three are same manufacturer, model and size on sidewall but due to amount of wear they are three different heights. If put a new tire on one side with well worn on opposite the difference will totally wreck the spider gears along with ring and pinion in axle. A matched set of tires is cheaper than rebuilding a rear end 5,000 to 10,000 miles later.

Slime and Fix-a-Flat melt the inside of the tire and doubt even two cans would inflate a totally slack 3/4 or one ton truck tire. Every truck I own has a plug kit and a good 12 volt compressor along with a AAA membership that cover myself and wife. Have not changed a tire on side of road in over a decade. Call AAA and if in a safe location their contractor changes where sits and if not safe they put it on roll back and move it to safe location. Rather ride on spare than ruin a tire with a chemical that softens rubber till melts and sidewalls lose majority of strength.

If just picked up a nail or screw on construction site remove, plug and inflate to proper pressure wirh tire repair kit myself. Wife has no business changing tire on 3/4 ton truck and I only pull tires when truck is in my shop sitting level and off ground proper distance to work and torque each lug nut. AAA is a great service, free lockout service if you or wife locks keys in car, deliver fuel if run out on road and more. Break down and will tow to safe place free or farther for flat rate. Had water pump go out on interstate, AAA gave me free tow to closest auto parts store where purchased new pump, antifreeze and swapped water pump in auto parts parking lot.

About eight years ago was flipping batteries in NC for Ma Bell after dark after long day and was dead tired. Phone rang as was locking doors to hear mom crying saying dad was in hospital and doctors were unsure if he was going to live and that he could have hours to days if unable to reduce fluid buildup around his heart. Totally freaked and worked my way to NC 64 cutting across western NC to take U.S. 441 back home. Was so freaked and worried about not seeing him before died pushed truck as fast as could travel safely not paying attention to anything but driving and watching for deer in the dark till truck started sputtering going up a steep hill when looked at gauges first time to notice gas gauge was buried below empty.

Had to walk to turn on cell phone booster to get service where explained issue to representative at AAA. Told me would dispatch truck to middle of nowhere NC fast as could. Less than 20 minutes a roll back came in behind me and knew rep said they provide 2.5 gallons free which should get someone to fuel stop. Rural NC after dark is different rules like New Mexico and Nebraska. Two me hopped out said were told my father was in hospital dying and trying to get home. They had three five gallon jugs, poured in fifteen gallons and when asked what owed they said get on road had enough gas to get to hospital without stopping and would follow me to next town if able to keep up in case had an additional issue due to running it out would scoop me up and take truck and me back to Georgia. Pulled a $100 bill and offered to which was told my money was no good that night.

Plug kit, compressor and AAA. All my trucks have a $100 bill hidden under a piece of trim that requires screw driver to access. That keeps me from using it in gun shop and save for true emergency only. Add in lots of spare magazines for your SIG's, 100 round box of spare ammo and two credit cards should survive.

Lots of compartments and boxes, a place for everything and everything in its place.

I also collected some things on the trip..

A few gun parts I've been wanting from prearranged meeting with board members along the way, and some specialised truck parts for diagnostic and tuning.
