Recovery.

Like the tool kit, the recovery ( self-help) equipment is still being assembled, so the list is certainly not complete and is growing as we learn more about what we need. How much of the kit is carried will also depend on the intended trip?

Items in the “black” will probably be permanently left in the van.
Items in “Grey” only when we think necessary or longer trips.
Items in “mauve” need to be changed, replaced, or we need more.
I will add links to reviews and more information about individual items ASAP.
