Starting a new thread rather than attaching it to the spare parts because it will probably only need a few replies. I don't have a fancy kit like the leaders at CM carry, so what is appropriate and what do you guys carry?

Mine consists mainly of a tarp and some plastic bags that are easily reached.

Why don't we borrow some from the trailer?

That's what I did... the toilet too :o, still have mine from leading on Saturday. Do we all need a spill kit? Ken can you use your executive powers to allow club members to sign out toilets & spill kits? I did discuss this briefly with Neil who of course thought it was ok, but I don't know how many "votes" we need. you've got mine, obviously.

That's why I asked, I thought each truck needed to have a spill kit, first aid, fire extinguisher, toilet, Hi-Lift. I have this stuff except a fancy spill kit.

We have the Small Auto Kit from Blue Devil Products (http://www.bluedevilproducts.com) for CM. It retails for $38.95. I would think "borrowing" one would be OK, with the stipulation that if you use it you replace it.

I still have the unused large double spill kit. I will definitely be bringing that! Don't thing everyone needs one but like Chris suggested we might be able to borrow kits from the club and replace the ones used.

Edit: Sorry, I didn't read very far up the thread. :rolleyes: I will check the forum a few times today but I will not have much time to "dwell" here today or this weekend.

I approve use of club loaners on the condition we use it we replace it. I don't think more votes are required as we are not breaking the $75 thershold. We are taking club banners as well.

Who can go to where ever the trailer is and get some. I think Kim Brown has it.

Well ok, great. But if not every truck needs one, and we already have 3, do we really need to worry about it? 3 is enough for the group, if you ask me (since you're probably going to ask me to drive to Pine... )

thoughts?

Thanks for volunteering :D

Ok so you need 1, maybe 2 then from the trailer? Maybe Ms. Kim would just bring those to the next RS meeting.. if asked.

edit: ok with Mike's we got 4. So we're good, right? done. great. let's talk about food some more.

So long as each truck does not need one, then having 4 along seems fine. Does anyone sell them locally?

Ok never mind then. However, in an e-mail thread with the CM Committee we aretalking about having these and toilets available for checkout for club events. Probably a good thing for future stuff at least.

Drip Pillows:

I bought a basic spill kit instead of the drip mat, mostly because renewing a drip mat is a lot more than replacing a few $1 mats (about $50 for a new center pillow). Not to mention I wasn't sure how much space and weight a mat might be. Although they do look very handy for trail repairs.
