    Camping Motorcycle Gear and Tips

    What do you use when camping from your bike? Here are some of the things I carry..

    1. Ultimate Survival Kit

    Video of kit

    2. Clothing

    Survival Spark

    3. Sleeping bags / Tents / Clothing

    http://www.wiggys.com

    Simply the best of all the sleeping bags in the world. I've been buying and using Wiggys for decades, since the early 1980's. They have a product called "lamalite" which is in their bags and clothing.

    Motorcycle friendly tents:

    4. Pocket Chain Saw

    Don't let the others fool you..this saw far out cuts all of them!

    5. Some people change the name of this product to disguise it and resell it to you, but this is the worlds best fire-starter material.

    But, Webber's Firestarter Cubes are sold in packages of 24 for around 4 bucks a pack.

    6. Stove: For all around convenience, durability, and usefullness, this is the stove to use:

    Sierra Stove - which burns almost anything natural with the aid of a AA battery:

    Get a SPOT Satellite Messenger. Here is a promo video. They were running a deal a little while ago where you got the messenger free if you bought a year of service.

    Here is the website: http://www.findmespot.com/en/

    Here is the SPOT page for motorcycle riders: http://www.findmespot.com/en/whouses...d=97&Itemid=42

    If you are out and run into trouble such as an accident, you can hit a button and an alert will be sent with grids to your current pos. It also has a button that allows you to "check in" with people that you have given access to on your account. They can login and track your route and progress using google maps. I know a lot of people that use this overseas just to let their family know they are ok, especially if they don't have good coms with the homefront via internet or phone. I also know some families that have this back home and can click a button to let their spouse deployed overseas know they are ok. It is pretty cool and the new ones are smaller.

    Something else along these lines (sorry to hijack the camping thread!) but a product I recently purchased for my spouse and I are Road ID wristbands, they list your ICE (In Case of Emergency ) info. Also a good practice to put ICE info in your phone as mostEMT's will look there at the scene of an accident. There website is www.roadid.com

    Nice item. But, at .27 a day for coverage, it seems a bit much for this basically electronic service which requires little effort after initial setup. I do believe however it is invaluable for those in the back country.

    I like the idea, but have done this a tad bit differently. I felt the most important thing to have along was your Medical Insurance Provider info, your emergency phone number, your blood type, and name. So, I had a dog tag made up with this on it

    With a dog tag, you wear it under your clothes and those who need to know will recognize the info.
