    What do you mean by trip?
    Are you talking close to home or away on an extended trip?
    If extended are you isolated or near towns and services?
    For us tools and spares vary according to what we are doing.
    We do some isolated stuff and take heaps, we have used b all of it I might add. But its better to look at it than look for it.
    If doing a weekend trip we dont take much, only cause we are close to home.

    I'm heading over to the nullarbor. There will be times when I will be isolated from towns. Some of the beaches I will be travelling along are not that well known. I normally travel with one or two other cars but this time I'm going solo. My mate normally brings the tools. I always carry spare hoses, oils etc.

    In that case a extra spare, or a good plug kit as a minimum. Something to demount and remount a tyre could be real handy.
    I have a bead breaker, its done 34000klm in 3 trips to the interior and never been used, a mate is back from a Birdsville trip today, between 2 vehicles they had 5 flats. What the..

    Have you thought about a sat phone, EPIRB or VHF?

    Thanks for that. An EPIRB or similar device did not cross my mind but now you mention it it sounds like a good idea. I'm heading to get a spare UHF ariel tomorrow so I will check them out whilst Im there.

    cheap tarp to lie on, and hand cleaner for after, workshop manual.

    The patience to wait for someone to come along who actually knows that the bit you have been wrestling with needs judicious application of a hammer. I've helped a couple of people out, and was helped out once by a grey nomad who wandered over with a cuppa in hand and just happened to be a retired auto leccie who knew to bend the tabs on the alternator brushes down to get them working again.
