Tea Tree Pads


Trader Joe's has these tea tree pads for face cleaning which I bought for that purpose thinking that when we were off road it would be nice to clean my face. After using them for several trips I decided to read the directions and was surprised to find that you had to rinse well with water after use...kinda defeated my purposes. HOWEVER I have since been using them for many of the uses DK mentions(havent tried them on blisters but my flip flops fit pretty good so dont have a problem with that) and have found them to be very convenient to carry around in this form. When they dry out...oh how could that happen here....I just add a little water and use them on my bites, etc. It seems they would be easier to transport than a liquid.
Just an aside....they should have been on my original list.
BTW lotsa great ideas came out of this thread.
Thanks

Seriously, the zip bagged key is the answer for your spare key.

However, the best way to attach it is to fold the bagged key as tightly as possible, lay it against a frame rail or a bumper support under the back of the vehicle and duct tape it tight to that member. Then if someone looks under the back of your rig and sees a wrap of duct tape they will never guess it is your key.
Have one on the right side, aft, taped to every one of my vehicles.
Oooops, now one of you less honorable Nomads will probably swipe my truck.

Silvadene


I know about Aloa Vera for burns but I havn't found it everywhere I got burned. A nurse friend who worked for a plastic surgon recomended Silvadene, "Sulfadiazina de Plata". It is by perscription only in the US but over the counter in Mex. Usually one aplication is enough to take the pain away and get the healing on the way. It turns black a few hours after you apply it but I have never seen anything as good for the minor but painful burns one (like me) gets working on and around engines. Small jar about 3 bucks.

:biggrin:

You missed the point


Yankee, if you wrap the key tightly in the small baggie, then lay it on top, or inside the rail, then run a single wide wrap of duct tape twice around, drive around for a week to get a layer of dust, it is virtually impossible to spot. And, the amount of product (having never smoked either the legal or the illegal stuff I will call it that) that could be stored under that single wide wrap would hardly fill a well finished butt, let alone a full stick.

I can't believe no one mentioned a high-lift jack and a short section of 4 X 4. I would never go off road in Baja without it. I kept 2 on the back of my bus. Saved my butt many a time.

sandals


A good pair of good sandals that you can also wade in.

It's too hot to wear boots and socks. It's too rough to walk barefoot on some of the beaches. It's foolish to climb around those barnacle encrusted rocks without shoes. The bottom of the aluminum boat is too hot to stand on in bare feet.

Last trip I went through 2 pairs of flip flops. The first I lost while wading at San Lucas Cove, returning from the anchored boat. The foot just sank in the mud and pulled the strap right through the hole. The second got wedged between rocks in a tidepool on the Pacific side and a large wave just washed it out to sea. We cast our lures at the floating shoe but to no avail. I limped back to camp, but decided to give another fishy spot a try. I get ready to cast when, low and behold, the shoe comes floating by again. The longshore current just drifted it along the coast without actually washing the dang thing up on the beach.

This time I'm getting some quality sandals that strap around the foot and that provide good protection to the toes. I used to use tennis shoes but the sand washes into all the small areas and just cuts you up big time.

P.S. a lot of good stuff on this thread. Nothing like people with experience.

More Stuff


A fine pair of tweezers to get the cholla spines that you will inevitably step on.

A $7 straw hat, wide brimmed and cone shaped. Good for a single trip. Light and airy. Doesn't stick to your skin.

Pair of featherweight long pants. Thin as paper but strong. Dries in 30 minutes.

A light longsleeved shirt. Same qualities as pants.

Immodium AD. Your penance for going to a Mexican restaurant.

A pair of binoculars and Peterson's guide to birds for those marvelous early morning walks.
