Just got back from a 3 day trip. Had 2 bou down by 7am opening morning. Put 91 hard miles on the prowler and a great time. Few pics that had on my phone. When I get my crap sorted out and charge the camera might start a thread.

Those going out in the field or even camping what are some cant leave behind items for your prowler?

For me;

Spare tire, patch kit, tire pump, bag of tools mostly metric sockets and wrenches, extra fuses, a jug of coolant, small set of jumper cables.

I don't really have any spare parts I take, I don't even have a spare belt come to think of it. My thinking is if something happens at least I might have the tools to take parts off in order to limp back.

Nice gone2hills!

I go out 26 & 27 for caribou
Back home for anniversery the 30th 10years now
Then out on the 31st for moose that opens on sept 1

Just getting the piles of gear up from the crawl space
Built a meat wagon with the kid's help

Got to put lights on the machine.
And a gun rack, Thinking about putting a lookout seat on the roof!
Got a buddy that said he would ride up there if I build it.

Also waiting on a new clutch setup from airdam///

recovery gear !! ... emergency food / MRE's just a couple for that "Oh Crap" day .. Shovel/Ax / Bow Saw or Chain Saw if in the woods, nothing worse than a downed tree 10 miles up a draw with no turnaround room .. emergency heat source , candle or petroleum jelly to light a fire in wet conditions . hand warmer packets . emergency tarp / shelter .. takes no space but will save ya if out in it and broke down in foul weather. and the list can go on for ever ..

where ya at ? terrain ? .. in your hunting area

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us
