A few "clean" shop rags, an old bath towel, and a nice queen sized heavyweight wool blanket (along with 1/2 case of water, some MREs, coffee powder, all the fixins for coffee/tea, and an old Coleman Peak 1 camping stove (and don't forget the e-tool and a roll of TP - it's amazing what you can fit in a 5 gallon bucket or 2

Also keep in mind the idea of improvisation


Besides the FA/trauma kit I always have in the truck I always have a staple gun and lots of GUN tape, as well as some JB weld and a torch. If I can't stop bleeding with that then I bet some 550 cord and a wrench could make one hell of a tourniquet.

Don't forget how important a staple gun is if a boy shows up at your door to take your DD out on a dat,,,,AND he has his pants falling down.

Rule #3 of the "10 Simple Rule For Dating My Daughter" clearly states that the father has the right to staple gun those pants to his hips to insure that his pants don't fall off during the date.

My kid is just pushing the age where she will be dating soon so I haven't had that experience yet.

Maybe I will put some of that 4 x 4 gauze next to the front door as well. Then, after I give the boy with his pants falling down a flying double drop kick off of my step I will have the gauze handy without needing to get it from the truck.

I will call it the emergency boyfriend trauma kit

Well, hopefully you will remember your ER time. I have had all kinds of doctors stop at accident scenes who had not a clue as to on-the-side-of-the-road medicine. They were office doctors, never see blood, never work in a non-sterile environment, proctologists, etc etc etc, who did their internship long long ago...

Any guy who has the GUTS to show up in a kilt to date my daughter is OK by me, so long as he is wearing his sporan, and his blade. Give me a little warning, and I'll have some pipers ready...

You may give him credit for GUTS, but don't forget, kilts are typically a "commando" type of garmet. eek

LOL,

ever hear the one about how they make knights in Scotland?

The king raises the kilt in front with the tip of his sword.

It ain't always commando...

I guess some folks reckon it's worth a whole lot more to be called "Sir" than just getting tapped on the shoulder.
