Draft load list for Bonneville
« on: July 30, 2008, 04:10:08 PM »
The following is a load list for Bonneville I have been working on for some time. It is a dream sheet as if I had unlimited space and funds. My intent was to make a master list that could be whittled down by dropping things off the list. I used to work in emergency planning so it is organized by function or category so you can add things in each category according to what your car needs, and it gives a logical place to look for things as you massage and modify the list to suit your needs.

And no I don't have all this crap or the semi it would take to haul it! ;)

Ahhh -- yeah bringing the car is a good idea! I should add that to the list somewhere.

Larry- are you going this year?

I'm not sure to be honest. I am getting new rear wheel bearings installed on my drive to bonneville clunker tomorrow. They need a special press and tools to do it right so paying a shop to do it.  I might drive out for a couple days but will make that decision here in a week or so as some other things get sorted out. I just moved and lots of things are up in the air right now.

And I though my load list was long...

Thanks for posting yours. It might stop me waking in the night dreaming of what I forgot to pack. Now I just have to figure out how to get it all there....

A couple of additions:
First Aid - burn cream and gel pads (sun burn and touching hot engines)
 - Butterfly closures (for minorly deep cuts) - used them first myself when I learned engines were sharp suckers
Pit construction - 1 inch slats (cheap wood) - pre drilled to hold down edges of tarps in pit area screwed in with dry wall screws.
 - Rough door mats to wipe salty feet on before entering pit area
And if we are really getting carried away... I would like a hand held vacuum to clean out the salt from under the driver's feet - in the car!

Many thanks for starting this.

While we're on the subject of first aid -- Nancy and I carry a pretty-well stocked first aid kit in BOTH the trailer and the truck.  And the kits -- in plastic tackle boxes about a foot by 6" x 6" -- are very well marked so anybody can find them easily, and also they're packed right near a door -- so the responder doesn't have to dig for a half-hour to find it.  Last year we were helping with set up t SpeedWeek and on the very first day -- we'd only been on the salt for a half-hour or so -- one of the workers slipped and got a nasty abrasion on his shin.  Voila, we had the kit out and in use within a minute.

Pack your emergency supplies (including the fire extinguisher) in easy-to-access locations!
