If you are in a vehicle you are in a limited space and have to give thought to what you carry. You've pared down to what you need, what you like and what you can't do with out. When you have some time on the road you find things never used and usually discard them. This is about what things you must have, use daily and wouldn't do without. Things universal, by that I mean things we all might find useful and maybe hadn't thought of. So no medicines, personal health items, electronic items,etc. So, what are the 5 things you use every day or almost everyday you wouldn't want do without.

Mine

1. Pocketbooks and more pocketbooks.

2. Knife

3. Headlamp

4. Widemouth Nalgene bottle

5. Daypack

What are yours?
1. Seat-back organizer
2. Duffle Bags
3. Plastic Zip bags
4. Binder clips
5. Trekking Pole as an arm extension

I'm curious how you use all of your pocket books. Are they small like wallets, or larger lake purses?
LOL, I read them. I buy them from St. Vincent DePauls, garage sales, thrift shops. When i'm in the zone I read a book a day.
1. Lots of water containers (all sizes)
2. Ruck sack(s)
3. Knife (s) :-)
4. Wok
5. Tools for vehicle (and "recovery" strap) These are important even if you don't know how to use them, the person stopping to help you might.
