    What is important?

    I might get shot down here but hey:
    What do you guys pack to go on a road trip. At the moment I havent even got a spare wheel or jack!. Are oil, water, basic tools, petrol a must or do you just wait to be recovered? Im heading out for Wheels day tomorrow morning, hopefully see you at Maccy D's Monday Tri boys

    Usually put my faith in a higher power but in the case of the Austin - tools, sticky tape, WD40, towels, rags, hammers, cable ties, jump leads, a petrol can and lots of spare oil...

    See you at Aldershot.

    All the above and Jaydub's list, a tow rope, wire, connector set and anythin else I see in the garage when packing. Get a scissor jack from a breakers and a spare wheel!
    If I wasn't meant to go that fast, the pedal would only go half way!

    Mobile phone and a mate who can pull my trailer and recover me if it all goes wrong. Cash and credit card also

    I've got a spare wheel, jack and brace but I don't know if any of them work or not

    I also had one of them reversable screwdrivers, phillips one end and a flattie on the other, and a 13mm spanner, and that was it.

    No spare (3.5" + 8.5" wheels??) no jack (not needed due to lack of spare).

    TBH it never really let me down (got recovered back twice in 9 years, both times were within 5 miles of me house!!!), just make sure that you have a reliable car...!!!

    Fueled by Jim and Luckies.
    Still doing all the shit I used to ;-)
