My tendency to categorize and make extensive and never to be used lists, naturally saw this post as an extension of the "tools" posting. So now I need three lists. Tools needed (pliers, screwdriver and wheel wrench etc. , small repair aids ( tape, Teflon tape, zip ties, Velcro etc.) and finally parts specific to our Escape. This would include sail switch, propane regulator, water pump etc. , none of which I carry or expect to. Without them, I'll be forced to do some genuine camping, and exercise my ingenuity. That Boy Scout motto is ok but it can give you a bad back and an overloaded trailer.

On drones, my aggressive nature immediately turns to getting a bigger more powerful, faster drone that can fly the other persons drone down and take it our of the air, preferably over water. That failing, and with a nod to today's high technology, a universal, hunting controller that relieves the owner of control and let's the offended individual determine the fate of the clinking, clanking colaginous collection of junk. Hats off to the Wizard of Oz. Mr. Wizard, and Dirty Harry.

Sounds like some of you bring duplicates of nearly everything with you, even the kitchen sink. I am more of a minimalist. I carry a spare tire with my Escape when I travel. I also never go anywhere without having at least one extra case of beer along. Other than that my list of spares is pretty short.

In an effort to reduce weight and get the same result, I usually travel with a full bottle of good whiskey, I like it straight up, room temperature. Now that's a spare part that fits most camping styles if you're not going anywhere soon.

Okay, you just caught me up. I usually carry at least one or two spare bottles of good whiskey. I like variety. Never ice, and rarely a splash of water.

Hi: Jim Bennett... If you like it cold just keep it in the freezer next to a good supply of filet mignon!!! Alf

Must resist….okay one last comment, then I will leave this topic alone.

Backcountry camping repair kit: A couple of wraps of duct tape around a ski pole with a microleatherman.

Recreational Vehicle repair kit: A case of wine in the loft step, beer in the fridge and what?, four small items that can fit in a gallon size zip lock bag that can make your “camping” experience more enjoyable if they fail? And yes, we are taking the kitchen sink. Happy Holidays, Scott

Similarly, a few wraps of duct tape around a flashlight in your auto obviate the necessity of carrying a full roll of duct tape (unless you want to).
