Bunk

First Aid Kit

Recommended Posts

I travel the back country and have thought I am fairly well prepared. My "FAK" is very basic, my knowlage is a little ahead of my kit. I was at a trade show this last week with my wife and saw some really cool compact kits for not a lot of money.

It kinda made me think about up dating it. I get around the back country in a Rhino and camp in a fifth wheel so it is not like I don't have the room. I was thinking a small one for the Rhino and a bigger one for the trailer.

What do you all carry and where? Thanks, Bunk

Hi Bunk,

this is probably one of the least discussed aspects of prospecting

and one of the most important.

I always carry a small, very compact first aid kit in my backpack and another

in the 4x4. I have never had to use it aside from a bandaid

for a blister once about two years ago.

One thing that is missing from first aid kits which can be

pretty important is that powder that stops bleeding. I forget

what the proper name for it is, but nowadays it can be had cheaply

and it can save a life.

A good topic, which is typical from you,

When using superglue on a cut/wound, you should leave one end of the cut unglued for the wound to drain any infection or fluids.

Good first aid kit with super glue and a few anticoag patches plus a hemostat.......... AND the knowledge of how to use it all. I have an extensive kit for the truck and a compact but very complete one that is always with me........ The one in the truck has stopped much bleeding from car accidents I come upon!
