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.

Seeing more hunters on the trail, selecting their site's, getting the tree stands up, and putting out bait, I mean compose pile's. I don't hunt, but in my area it is a way of life. I do allow neighbors, and friend to hunt my 20 acres, as long as they us know so we don't go out while there hunting.

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

I hear on the list going on forever. I have a torch for one of those little propane bottles works great for starting fires wet or dry.

Eureka is the general area I was riding, 130 miles northeast of Anchorage, Alaska. When I leave my house (driving Truck)im at about sea level that's why I put the elev at 5K in one of the pic.

Terrain is mostly on old mining roads put in with tractors prob 40-50 yrs ago. There are still some active mines out there so the trails can be nice or very tore up depending on the gear their bringing in. This is also full size mod truck country so lots of holes. Lots of hills and creek bottoms. This year the water levels were very low but other years can be very dangerous if rain is heavy. Pretty slow going really, prob avrg. 8-10 mph, trying to pick lines that will keep all 4 wheels down. There is a hill on the trail about 15 miles in that keeps 60% of the people out of there(monument but I call it widowmaker).

If you google Eureka Alaska you will get some great vids of the terrain

I have been seeing more and more of the those lookout seats. Nobody riding on them but used when at camp or taking breaks to glass. Good Idea for sure. If I ever get around to a roof rack im going to make sure its solid enough to climb up there and stand.
