PU. come along, three sets of chain for hooking come along to if need be, nylon tow strap, hatchet, knife, saw, jack, C.W., burlap, two different dog chains and ropes, landing net for fishing, cheat stick for "sport climbing", extra ski poles to be used as the situation warrents, binos, sharpening stone, oil, fuel drying agent.

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


-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
