Beyond food, clothing, shelter, what "things" do you bring to make a 2 to 3 day trip more comfortable?

For example, I take very small amounts of lots of "drug store items" like:

a. toothpaste 1",hand cream, bacitracin, hydrocortizone, small amt in separate baggies
b.18" of dental floss (also good for use as thread),
c. 3-4 decongestant tablets, 1 aspirin, 6-8 ibuprofen, 2 peptobismol tablets



The cure for a fallacious argument is a better argument, not the suppression of ideas.

Wow, Forrest, I camp like a cavewoman compared to you! (I don't think that I have ever even sat down to eat; my tailgate acts as the table/cookspace if I even bother to bring a stove!)

I guess this thread should have been for Forrest, "what do you leave at home?"

By old, how old?
By laughs, do you mean relentless ridicule?

Maybe you should consider taking him to the Ahwahnee for dinner (it seems that the Indians know how to treat their goats properly):

What the!?!?
I think by rickety he means the maneuvering done right before the "cat-like goat" pounces on the kill...

Bee,
No, the mayo packets have never given me any trouble nor have catsup packets.
Del Scorcho is one of the Del Taco salsa packets. Different than Del Inferno which is more like tobasco.
Sweet Nectar Powder is any dry sugary drink powder like Gatorade, lemonade powder, emergenC, etc. A welcome change from plain water sometimes especially if the water used to mix it is cold.

Did you get the map?

Mike,

What about that OldGoat (it is one word, isn't it?) that you ride all day and constantly need to keep extricating from difficult circumstances when it wanders off on its own?

And I only mean one portion of Katz... not his entire demeaner.. (i.e. no disrespect intended)
I'm a kind and gentle goat...
