wow tricky, you are stocked! and ready to be stoked, as well, noting one item in particular.... cool.gif

 

And you bring up another category I didn't think of: maps and references and other junk..

 

-field guide to birds

-road maps of WA, OR, ID, MT, UT, BC and Alberta

-Gazeteer

-Harry Majors's "Exploring Washington" (which really kicks ass, if you're a history buff or just like trivia, it's a gold mine. Image an Gazeteer with hundreds of notes on History, geology, towns, wildlife, etc for each map)

a bunch of 7.5 minute topo Quads

-half dozen old copies of Discover magazine, for browsing during unplanned downtime

-Nat Forest maps for Mt Bak Snoq, Okanogan, Gifford Pinchot, Wenatchee

-Gazeteer

Ah I never leave home without one.

Tons of the other mentioned stuff. Oh yah, its a Civic HB not a SUV. Nothing against those that have them if they drive politely and use them off road.

Also amongst all my junk, two planks of 2x6 to pass over nasty parts off road.
