Tip # 2

Postby Scotty » Sat Oct 22, 2005 10:13 am

Learned this one from the boy scouts. BE PREPAIRD. Always carry extra crap in the truck. I have a bag with drugs I might need, gloves and other stuff. Fews days ago some people were talking of what to have if emergincies arise for horses. I feel the same about cattle. Most of the time the VEts office that my wife works at is closed when I am looking at cattle. They would open but somtimes you don't have time. I carry a hearding stick not just for the animals but for snakes and such. What are soem other things?

I always carry 15-20 ft of 1/4" or 5/16" chain with hooks on each end. Also, a 6' fiberglas sorting stick is standard issue on my truck. And, carry bolt cutters, pliers, hammer, a hoe in the summer (for weeds, goard vines), hacksaw, "Jake's Wire Tighteners & Tool", screwdrivers, WD-40, bailing wire, rope in tool box...among other things. Often my cell phone too, especially if I'm the only one around at the time.

Have been known to pack a gun also.

Better carry some OFF! for skeeters and noseeums, drinking water, and I always have a nice collection of Johnny Cash CD's. I carry a tool belt to carry fence pliers, hammer, and staples, too.

I've found that I can carry just about everything in my truck EXCEPT the tool I need for the project I happen to be working on at the time I need it. If I happen to be at the barn then the tool I need is either at the house or in the truck, which I left at the house. :roll:
