Definitely an occupation for a warm, dry summer night! Preferably in an attractive location - with more than one kind of fish in the water, so that when one species loses interest another may take its place. Brown trout + sea trout were my preference.

A flask of coffee, a ciggy or two - if that's your poison, and the prospect in the morning of a hot, slap-up breakfast completes the idyll!

Used (8gk pull) Velcro on the bottom of jerry, which holds it super firm, and a bungee rope attached to the top, which hook around the cargo cleats.

Its held super secure. Very happy with it.

Apart from many things already listed here, I would also add the following:

- various hand tools and wrenches
- a set of matches, or even better, a flint stone
- a compass
- a hydraulic bottle jack (instead of the factory scissors jack)
- a piece of log as an additional support / extension stand for the bottle jack
- a pair of big rubber (fishermen, miner) boots
- a saw for wood
- a saw for metal (for cutting lockers placed on some ramps and gates in forests)
- a crowbar (multi-use, for example for dislodging big rocks)
- an axe
- a big hollow bar
- a hand winch ("come along")
- a pack of special air activated hand/feet warmers (available in mountaineering equipment stores)
- vacuum packed dry fruit (dates, figs, grapes, etc.)
- "energy" food (snickers etc.)
- a miniature holy book
- also, depending on environmental safety risks during the trip, one or all of the items listed below
-- a brass knuckle fighting tool
-- a pepper spray
-- a bayonette or a combat knife
-- a loaded pistol with a full ammo magazine
-- a loaded sawed off shotgun with extra ammunition


I carry most of these (and other items mentioned by others) all the time. Some I take only on certain special trips.

James Bond would be pleased with all that kit ;)

If the world does befall a disaster, best to find a guy with a Jimny, and on a side note; dont get in an argument with Bosanek! ;-)

Now that Bruce Willis is getting a bit old, I think you may be a 'shoe-in' for the next Die Hard movie, Bosanek!
