We all need the right tools, supplies, food, water and safety equipment when traveling to remote country. Four-wheeling and motorcycle backcountry travel, in particular, require careful planning and appropriate travel gear. In all cases, safety equipment, medical emergencies, repair tools, tire repair kits, vital spare parts and other necessities can make or break a trip. Discuss and share topics at this forum!—Moses Ludel

While i don't do a lot of serious off-roading, my family and i are big into camping, sometimes leaving on friday with no destination in mind, and just finding a campsite as we go. It doesn't always work, but most of the time it does.

 

But this post isn't about camping gear as much as it is safety gear. Being the adventurous types we are, we tend to end up in some out of the way places, and having 3 young children, the inevitable scrapes and bruises that come with them camping with us. I know quite a few people like to just get emergency supplies locally, which is fine. But at the same time, then you have to build your own emergency kit, which sometimes is a pain.

 

We have been dealing with a company for years that sells emergency kits that come in different sizes. They are pre-packed in zippered cases, so supplies don't get lost. With the smaller kits having just the bare essentials, like band-aids, and maybe some anti-biotic ointment, the full kits cover almost ever emergency, short of the most severe cases. The company is eastern mountain sports, and their website is:

biggman100, this is very helpful! Even for the smaller shop facilities that I've operated, there never seems to be an adequate first-aid kit available.  Either a company designs kits for commercial EMTs or has nothing more than the bare essentials for small-scale use. 

 

If others would like to comment on Eastern Mountain Sports and other sources for first aid kits, and ways to make sure we have adequate safety equipment for our families and friends afield, please jump into this discussion!
