Planning for Moto Camping
« on: December 31, 2015, 08:10:53 AM »
I am sick and tired of this weather! But I am using the time to prep for Moto camping. JBMFT shared a cool link in another thread and I noticed this subforum was near empty. Winter is a good time to plan and prepare. Gear is "off season"(?) and on sale!

Here is the link JT shared. It is a camping checklist. Very cool. Thorough. And in pdf form so you can customize:

I'll post more pics when I get a chance. I have added a few new things to my gear. This is one of my favorites. $10 at WalMart. About the size of my hand. I won't be felling any forests, but in a pinch it will cut the end off of a Christmas tree that is too tall 8)

So I assume it will work just fine for survival or a simple campfire.

I bought a folding camp saw earlier this year and I won't camp without it. It is fantastic and I have made quick work of turning drop wood into a campfire.

Also got a Cold Steel Bushman. Nothing fancy but you won't beat yourself up if you lose it and you can use it as a spear. Good stuff.

Andy, I waited for it to actually get here to check. It doesn't say anything about metric or SAE. But I didn't buy it for the hex wrench. I needed a hammer for tent stakes, needed small for packing and the axe is bonus for emergency use. I don't expect it to do a major job. But I don't need it to do a major job. I will be mostly in campgrounds where firewood is available to buy.

Andy posted this in another thread. I thought it deserved more exposure here. Good stuff.
