For maintaining batteries and checking charge/discharge, I've found this little $60 ammeter (I paid $49 on sale) to be one of those things I don't want to leave home without.

Enough fuel to get back (if able), and a personal locator device (if not).

We always have a .357 Magnum and a 12 gauge, and not just when boondocking.


You are a wise man.

1. Two AGM 6v or Group 27 12v batteries- okay, gotta replace my 12Vs
2. Solar power (100 watts)- don't think I need w/ generators*
3. Propane (2x5 gal tanks)- have 2 15 gal tanks
4. Seven gallon portable water tank- don't have- yet
5. First Aid Kit- check
6. Water Purification Kit- don't have; don't need
7. Saw Zaw (for cutting firewood)- cordless Sawzall on the list
8. Firestarter- check
9. Camera- check
10. Altimeter App- don't need
11. Dump Station Location App- don't need
12. GPS/Maps- maps, yes
13. GPS locator- nope; don't need

* I have asked about this in another topic- to paraphrase- do I need to go solar since I have generator power for charging? Any consensus?

Am I ready? Don't know yet...
