Needs to be ironed out a little, but the idea could work well I think...
I remember we had talked about it prior to the event, and I was intending to drop off the axles that Kevin brought me (thanks Kevin!). When I found out that no one else was leaving their spares in the trailer, I just left them in my camp.
Spares I normally carry in my rig:
New addition this year:
Tie rod ends
3rd member, axles and driveshafts are kinda big to carry on the trail, I figure they're more like "send somebody back to camp" type items.
