I started with my original kit and added to it a large automotive kit and some additional supplies. This is really a lot of stuff and is probably over kill. I decided to go a bit larger than in the past, because there are a lot of unknowns for me on this trip. I broke this super kit into 3 kits, one that will be on my person in my jacket, one that will be primarily a wound kit to grab and go to a scene, and one that will be wound and other medical issues.
Kit 1 is something new to me that I learned about from the LDRider list. If I am hurt and unable to reach my bike I might need a way to signal, call attention at night and stay warm, so I put a whistle, an emergency blanket and a chemical light in a small bag that will go inside my jacket. In addition, my cell phone will be in my jacket.
This is what I packed for medicine. It is a small supply of emergency pain killers and insect sting relief. I carry this only for emergencies, so it is in a bag to grab and go. Everything went in a plastic bag to waterproof it.
This is a shot of bandages, tape and wraps. I split this up into the two kits and of course put everything in plastic bags and discarded the boxes.
These are some basic tools to have, scissors, pen light and tweezers.
These are some extras, hiking boot laces always come in handy, water proof matches ensure being able to have fire and a small bottle of hand sanitizer for cleaning.
Here are the three kits, note that the orange chemical light is actually in my small bag on my person.
All packed up and ready to go. The small red bag fits in several of my jacket pockets, the Large Red Bag is only bandages, matches, hiking boot laces, and sanitizer. This bag goes into my left saddle bag. The Black Bag is more bandages, plus the additional medical supplies as outlined above. Right now it is in my trunk for quick access. In reality, the Large Red bag could be consolidated into the black bag, and I may do it in the future. I split them up to reduce the size and to have the two in different locations in case something happens to one of them.
