Speaking of First Aid..... Rising Sun will be offering an actual worthwhile First Aid Trauma Kit specifically designed for offroading. This kit was assembled by an avid Outdoorsman & Firefighter/Paramedic that's been in the field for 20 years.

Here's the details of what's included:

•SAFE-T-KIT Bag, Dimensions: 12"L x 5"W x 5"H (SF-1 - SAFE-T-KIT)

• Emergency Blanket
• Trauma Shear
• Splinter Forceps
• Disposable Scalpel
• SAM Splint
• Velcro Tourniquet
• (10) 3/4" Bandage

• (3) 3" x 3" Gauze
• (6) 4" x 4" Gauze
• 1" Tape Roll
• 3" Roll Gauze
• Triangular Bandage
• 3" Elastic Bandage
• Penlight
• Non-Aspirin Tablets (2 pkg)
• Aspirin Tablets (2 pkg)
• Tongue depressors (aka: finger splints)
• CPR Pocket mask
• Cold Pack
• Hot Pack
• Eye wash w/ oval & Gauze eye pad
• Burn Free Gel
• Antiseptic Wash
• (4) 3-in-1 Antibiotic Cream
• Glucose 15 Oral Gel Tube
• Latex Free Gloves
• (1) Koban (self adhering wrap)
• Large Abdominal trauma dressing

The text in the pictures below will be very similar but will say "Cruise Moab 2014" instead of "Rising Sun 4x4 Club". Kits will be available for purchase at the event for $80 each but if you pre-order now we're offering a $5 discount. That $75.00 before the event but orders need to be placed before 4/14.

Here's the link to PayPal (Please include the service fee): www.risingsun4x4club.org/paypal.shtml

Please enter "Cruise Moab First Aid Kit" in the description box & then send me a PM to let me know you want one.

Two junked cars to winch, flop, hi lift, etc confirmed yesterday. Should be a fun "hands-on" class.

Thank you Travis for bringing this awesome addition to Cruise Moab. I strongly suspect we'll have a lot more than the dozen or so who "officially" signed up during registration.
