Off-roading can be a fun activity or a great hobby for everyone to enjoy. But like every other activity it has its difficulties, and if you are not prepared, things could not go your way. Making sure you have the right type of equipment and tools when going off-road is very important.
Before we get to the list let me remind you that the most important thing to take with you when going off-roading is the backup crew. A major decree one needs to follow when off-roading, is "Never go alone.” Yes, it is never recommended to go off-roading alone. You never know what danger lies ahead and off-roading alone, can be very dangerous. So always go off-road as a group. Take a few of your friends in their vehicles when you go exploring. So, you deal with any complications that crop up, together and have a backup plan when you get stuck or face difficulties.
So, let us discuss 5 must-have items for your best off-road experience:
First Aid and Medical Kit
Accidents can happen, and that's no one's fault. So, it is necessary to prepare for the worst. Injuries like cuts, bruises, even broken bones can occur, and the first aid kit must be able to deal with all these. A bandage, cotton swabs, band aids, antiseptics and disinfectants, etc. could all be useful. One should always carry a few medicines. Being a physical sport, one might experience a medical emergency anytime. These need addressing as fast as possible. A few necessary medicines such as ORS solutions and Antacids could all come in handy.
An electric or mechanical winch and traction boards could be a huge help in such a situation. But not all off-road vehicles have a winch or traction boards. This equipment is expensive and only hardcore offroad enthusiasts use them. So, what is the the least you should carry as a recovery kit?
