Top 6 Travel Items To Take On Your Motorcycle!

April 1, 2019 | Gear | Permalink

If you are planning a motorcycle road trip and unfortunately are confused about what to pack and what not to, here is the perfect guide to aid you in your queries. Travel items which are required for a motorcycle trip must have a few prerequisite features. They cannot be bulky that it becomes impossible to carry them. You need to remember that the space you have is very limited.

A wallet is a must!

If one is planning a motorcycle trip, then what tops the list of travel items, is a wallet. You cannot travel without a wallet. If you don’t have money, then be ready to face a number of inconveniences. You might just run out of fuel, but that can be dealt with only if you have money.

Cannot do without clothes!

Clothes become essential in your travel list, only if you are planning a trip which will last for many days. You cannot carry different clothes for different days but you definitely need to carry a set of extra clothes. If your trip is going to be in a chilly area, then warm high necks are essential.

A toolkit to aid your travel!

Always remember that not all trips can be smooth going. You might just face a problem and you need to be prepared for the worst. A toolkit will make sure that if anything goes wrong in the bike, then a quick repair can be done even if you don’t have a service station nearby. So don’t forget to add a toolkit in your checklist of travel items for enjoyable traveling.

Gear which will help you if it rains!

No one can tell what the weather is going to be like with a full guarantee unless you are a god. If you don’t wish to feel uncomfortable and get wet in the rain while you travel, you must not forget to always pack gears which will support you when it rains. Gears like raincoats come in handy and are very easy to keep.

Personal stuff and a first aid kit!

One must always remember that some items stay to be essential like basic toiletries such as toothbrush, nail cutter and many more. For any traveler, it is very important to be fresh and it is only natural to get tired. Road trips can be taxing and if we have the right gear to freshen up, then it acts as a boon. Not all the time, will you have a hospital nearby when you’re traveling and thus you must always have a first aid kit.

Bring some tunes!

Let’s admit it, long road trips can become a bit boring when you’ve done and seen it all and are just rolling to get to your destination for the evening. Unfortunately you can’t exactly take your satellite and outdoor television with you on a bike, as you can do with camping, but I suggest you download some cool playlists to your phone or iPad and stream some appropriate music to your straight into your Bluetooth connected helmet or a portable wireless speaker mounted where you can hear it. There are some great brands in this market like Yamaha, Pyke, Boombotix, Outdoor Technologies and of course, you can hardly go wrong with a set of BOSE speakers. If you’re interested in some reviews on outdoor speakers visit this site for unbiased and detailed reviews.

This is an essential list to start with. As you ride more, you will learn more and this list may change but when in doubt, always come back to here and work from this list onward.

The Road Trip Tips

March 20, 2019 | Motorcycle Trips | Permalink

When Che Guevara ventured out with his friend across South America on his motorcycle, little did he know that it would be the most amazing experience for him! Had he had a trail camera back then, I am sure motorcyclists around the world would have enjoyed reading about his journey even more. For those who like to go on road trips, there is nothing better than hitting the road and staying on it. With miles to go before you sleep, road trips often bring out the best in you.

Road trips test your, challenge you and reward you. While the whole affair is ambrosial, one should always be mindful of safety and precautions while riding. While some of us stay on the road throughout the year, some simply go out on a road trip once or twice in two years. We consider these motorcyclists our kids and find it our duty to educate them on the tricks and trades of being on the road.

Simple little things can help you make your journey comfortable and safe –

  1. Bid adieu to fussy fabrics – Cotton is not a biker’s friend. Make sure that you buy underwear that wicks away perspiration.
  2. Stay hydrated – Consuming a lot of liquid throughout your journey would help you stay mentally and physically alert. Dehydration is a common problem that a lot of bikers suffer from and it is always good to ensure that you consume a lot of water throughout the day when on the road.
  3. Don’t believe what you hear – People you meet on the way may or may not misdirect or mislead you if at all you stop to ask directions. Therefore, carry with you a map of the area you wish to visit and ensure that you ask more than one person for the way out in case you are lost.
  4. Take into consideration the center of gravity when placing the luggage on your bike – Make sure that you pack your gear low and over the wheelbase to avoid drifting to left or right.
  5. Recharge your batteries: It is always a good idea to set out on a road trip with a fresh mind. A little exercise a few weeks before your road trip would definitely help. Similarly, always ensure that all your gadgets are properly cushioned and always charged to avoid being stranded in case of an emergency.

Bring along a camera and a travel size binocular so to capture and appreciate the beautiful moments and sights along the road that may not meet you again in your journey through life. Give a few trail camera reviews a read in order to get to the best of the lot within your budget.

Necessities for Travelling with a Drone

June 27, 2017 | Uncategorized | Permalink

Drone + BikeCarry-On Bags vs. Hard Shell Cases

Depending on the size and amount of gear you have for your drone, you’ll need to decide if you want to carry on the drone or check it in a hard-shell case. Just like traveling with camera gear, it’s always best to keep things with you. A checked bag is always a risk. Even if it’s handled properly, there’s always a chance that the bag can get delayed or put on the wrong plane.

If you have a smaller drone like a Phantom, there are bags designed for carry-on purposes. You just need to make sure that the bag fits in the overhead compartments or underneath your seat — this differs on every plane.

DJI has a hard-shell backpack , but I’d advise against getting a bag with any type of branding. You want your bag to be as inconspicuous as possible. While airport security doesn’t care if your bag says DJI, thieves might. The hard-shell backpacks are always uncomfortable and wear you down if you must carry over long distances. I much prefer a soft bag for carrying a long distance. Again, there is an official soft drone backpack — but you can find all sorts of these bags online.

If you have a larger drone like a DJI Inspire 1, Yuneec Typhoon, or Freefly Alta, you’ll want a rolling hard-shell case to check the drone. The Inspire and Typhoon are borderline in size. They will fit in overhead compartments on larger planes, but they won’t come close in smaller planes. Rather than risk finding out at boarding time, just plan to check your drone. A hard-shell drone case is your best form of protection when it comes to traveling with a drone. I once checked a semi-rugged case with padding, and still found that my baggage wasn’t handled properly. The best way to travel is a combination of both. I always check the drone body, controller, and accessories. In my drone case, I carry the drone batteries, as well as the camera gimbal and memory cards. Those are things I want to make sure don’t get tossed around below the plane.

Lithium-Ion Batteries

Rechargeable lithium ion batteries must always be carried in carry-on baggage. This includes your drone batteries. Do not check your batteries with the drone. It’s also recommended that you protect the battery terminals; you can simply cover them with tape.

You’ll need to verify with the airline, but the standard regulations limit passengers to only two lithium ion batteries over 100 Amp hours (Ah). There is no limit for most batteries under 100-watt hours.

Therefore, you’ll see manufacturers like DJI producing two types of batteries. For the Inspire 1 series, DJI produces the TB-47 battery that has 99.90 Ah and the TB-48 which has 129.96 Ah. The FAA restricts passengers to two TB-48 batteries, but they can carry several TB-47 batteries. You can also combine the type and carry two TB-48 batteries at four TB-47 batteries.

New batteries should have the watt-hour marked on them. If for some reason they don’t, you can calculate the watt hours by multiplying the battery voltage by the Amp hours (Ah).

Life on the Road

Life on the Road

Your genetics load the gun. Your lifestyle pulls the trigger.

Life on the Road

When it is in your blood to be on the road, you are looking at adventure every single minute of your life. As a kid when you first learnt to ride a balance bike, the glint in your eye came alive upon the sight of a clear road. This means that you were born to ride and go places that wouldn’t be preferred by the society in general. You might even be viewed as an outlaw and mothers might ask their kids to stay away from you. You have the muscle to go the distance and you have the heart to love your journey. There is nothing better than to set your own norms and hit the roads with a group of friends and stay on the road for the rest of your life.

On the Road

When you choose to live an alternate lifestyle – one that involved late night clubbing, dusty jackets, worn out bones, alcohol, cigarettes, fights, parties, camping and riding, there is so much that you learn about life and people. The most important lessons are learnt on the road. Spiritual growth is faster when you visit various places and meet different people.

When you set out for a long journey on the road, going through different cities and towns, you come across people from all walks of life. You would find a saint with bulging biceps and tattoos all over their body, a cowboy with no inclination toward working in the farm, a bartender with a MBA and a blonde who can play the mouthorgan and guitar at the same time.

The people you meet and interact with would play an important part in the lessons you would learn. The second aspect is that of the nightlife. The night surely comes alive with the sound of music at places far from home. If you are there, you learn about drugs, wasted lives, strained relationships, lost love, depression, distant memories and fatal accidents. Emotions run high in the nights and if you are at the right places, you get to explore the depth of emotions that rule the lives of many around the globe.

They say that it is always about the journey rather than the destination and it sure is. Going through various cultures brings you close to God and helps you understand spirituality in a much better way. You get to know the meanings of various symbols, you feel God when you almost miss a fatal injury, you get to know about courage and most importantly you get to know about joy. You marvel in the lap of nature with the sky above you and the wind in your hair. For some brief moments, you are transformed into the kid learning to ride a balance bike.

Purchasing The Right Motorcycle Safety Vest

May 4, 2016 | Gear | Permalink

icon_mil-spec_safety_vest_for_motorcyclesThere are a number of different options that are available to you when choosing a motorcycle safety vest. Choosing a hi visibility safety vest for motorcycle riding is not only going to be able to keep you secure but it will help you to be more confident whenever you’re on the road. By looking at these options that are available, you’ll be able to choose the right vest and the decision will be as easy to make as night and day, similar to comparing motorcycle safety reflectors with bicycle safety reflectors. Regardless of the one that you choose, however, it is sure to provide you with additional security when you’re on the road.

Looking At The Different Options

The first thing that you should do whenever you are looking for a motorcycle safety vest is to check the different options that are available as far as the style is concerned. Many of these vests are going to be full upper body vests, and this can be a little bit uncomfortable whenever you are traveling at higher speeds. Many people, especially those who like to have a full range of movement whenever they are on a motorcycle like to get a reflective harness with a belt included, which is very easy to put on and take off. It can provide you with the security without having to have something that may restrict movement.

Safety Features

Another thing that you may want to consider when choosing a hi visibility safety vest for motorcycle riding is the safety features that are built into it. Many of these safety vests, regardless of whether they are for motorcycle riding or for roadwork are going to be built to a certain set of standards. In the United States, this is governed by the ANSI but on a worldwide basis, it is governed by the INSI. Many of the optional items that are available in these sets, such as easy breakaway options can make them much more secure to wear.

Add Reflective Gear To Your Vest

Along with the safety vest, you might want to consider adding some other reflective gear so that you are even more visible to other vehicles. For example, having additional motorcycle safety reflectors is always a good idea. Just make sure that you get high-quality reflectors and not the less expensive bicycle safety reflectors that are easily found in a number of different places. This can ensure that they will stay on your motorcycle and provide you with the maximum amount of visibility possible.

The easiest way for you to find the motorcycle safety vest that you are looking for is on the Internet. Many times, there are websites that will provide the hi visibility safety vest for motorcycle riding which will also cover other related items, such as motorcycle safety reflectors. These websites will also typically be able to provide you with exactly what you are looking for and would never replace bicycle safety reflectors for those that actually go on the motorcycle. In doing so, it will help to ensure your safety and to make you more comfortable while you’re riding.

Shopping For A Men’s Leather Motorcycle Vest

motorcycle-vest-mv120-BlackThe men’s leather motorcycle vest has been around almost as long as the motorbike itself. They have become a symbol of male riders everywhere. No piece of clothing is more connected with motorcycles than the leather vest, and it’s one of the most frequently purchased accessories for serious riders. Whether you ride a Harley or a Honda, a leather pants and vest lets others know you’re not just an occasional rider of your steel horse.

Types Of Men’s Leather Motorcycle Vest

There are several types of men’s leather motorcycle vest. Traditionally, they were made only in brown or black and were limited in the number of styles and designs. Times have changed, though, and modern guy’s bike vests now come in many different styles and colors. These allow you to make a more personal statement about yourself. While traditional brown and black are still quite popular, there are many other more adventurous options available for you.

Different Designs

Some men’s leather vest designs still follow the old tradition of displaying various embroidered patches or slogans on the back. However, sleeker and more functional motorcycle vests are quickly gaining in popularity and tend to be favored by younger riders. There are utility vests made of leather that add a lot of practical functionality with added pockets (some are even concealed). Also, many leather vests now include reflective materials as well as extra padding designed to provide additional protection to the rider. You can even purchase a bulletproof leather motorcycle vest for additional security and peace of mind when going on long bike tours or riding in strange and unfamiliar places.

Choosing The Most Comfortable Vest

When shopping for a men’s bike vest, keep in mind a couple of factors regarding the vest’s quality. For example, the weight of the leather needs to be considered. If you’re looking for something more lightweight and comfortable, consider getting one that uses leather which is about 1.0- to 1.3 millimeters in thickness. For a design that is more durable and rugged, go with something with a thickness greater than 1.4 millimeters. Keep in mind that although thicker material vests last longer, they might be less comfortable in warmer weather.

Purchasing Online Vests

If you are unable to try on a vest before you buy it (for example, you purchase on the Internet), make sure that the site specifies “American Sizing”. Many websites now sell cheaper imported leather vests that are smaller when compared to men’s leather motorcycle vests produced in America. An “XL” or “XXL” size vest imported from China or Taiwan will probably be much smaller than what Americans are used to in these size designations.

Zips, Metal Snaps and Buttons

And finally, always look for vests which use high-quality metal snaps rather than buttons (A zip-up is fine, too). Buttons tend to be less reliable than snaps; they might unexpectedly come loose when riding at high speeds. If the vest you’re interested in has a zipper, whether on the inside or outside, look for brand-name zipper.

Selecting a reliable and stylish men’s leather motorcycle vest is not difficult. However, it does require a bit of comparison shopping and research on your part. But with this information in your memory, your search will hopefully be a bit easier and more productive.

Avoiding Back Pain When Traveling

May 3, 2016 | Motorcycle Trips | Permalink

I tend to make a lot of travel plans throughout the year, and traveling a lot can really have its downfalls.  Most of my travel is for business purposes, so I am not usually out of pocket a whole lot of money, which is what some people say is one of the worst things about frequent travel.  I would have to say that my chief complaint used to be my back pain.  I would travel, and it would cause my back to hurt severely.  That was, until I learned about inversion table exercises and started giving them a try.

How an inversion table can help your back

The inversion table will actually help you in a variety of different ways.  Inversion can really help to relieve your back pain, because it allows you to move into certain positions to stretch the muscles in your back.  Many of these positions would be next to impossible for you to get into without the help of a table.  Many chiropractors even use this tool to help their patients alleviate their pain in their back, and it could work for you as well.

Types of inversion table exercises

Now, we will take a look at some of the exercises that have actually been able to help me.  First, I was able to do inverted crunches.  This is actually where you invert your body to a 90 degree angle, and then do crunches.  They are fun, and they don’t feel anything like a regular crunch.  You can even invert just halfway, at 45 degrees, and still have great results.

Another great exercise that I tried was the side bend.  This is where you invert yourself again to 90 degrees, or even further if you can handle it.  You then slightly bend your body to one side, and then the other.  It can really help you to stretch those achy and sore muscles in your back, thus helping to alleviate your back pain. If you’re interested i buiying an inversion table here are some inversion table reviews.

Should you buy an inversion table?

It may be a good investment for you to buy an inversion table, especially if you do a lot of traveling.  While you can just go to the chiropractor, you will be able to take advantage of using your table much more often if you just buy one for home.  You can use it as needed, and you are sure to find that it brings you a whole lot of relief.

As you can see, there are a lot of reasons why an inversion table might be a great investment.  You don’t want to let your back pain go untreated, because it could lead to some serious health concerns down the road.  The key is to make sure that you focus on ways that you can alleviate the pain without having to drug yourself up with narcotic pain relievers.  Do as I did, and let these inversion table exercises make a difference for your back.  After all, your travel should be fun, not painful.

Leather Chaps For The Woman Who Rides

November 19, 2014 | Gear | Permalink

C766F_0098What’s the image you see in your head when you think of ladies leather chaps? Most people probably see a cowgirl, maybe in the Old West time, riding a horse, outfitted in full western gear. And while that’s certainly one context in which you might find a woman wearing chaps, there’s also another modern-day use for them: riding motorcycles. They’re used both for rider protection as well as a fashion statement.

What Are Chaps?

For those who aren’t sure what chaps are, they’re those sturdy coverings for a person’s legs that consist of a belt holding up leggings. These chaps are buckled on over the wearer’s trousers using the integrated belt. However, unlike trousers, chaps don’t have a seat, and the two legs aren’t joined at the crotch.

What They Can Be Used For

Ladies leather chaps are designed to provide the woman with protection for her legs. They have traditionally been associated with the cowboy culture of the West, used when the woman was on horseback, especially riding through brushy terrain. Today they’re still worn when a woman rides a horse, but usually for show use or for practical work situations. And of course, they’re now used for riding the modern-day “horse,” i.e., the motorcycle.

The Different Styles

You can find chaps in many different styles and with varying details. There are full-length chaps which are attached at the waist and which have the seat missing (allowing contact with the saddle), and which fully cover the rider’s legs. There are also half chaps, worn only on the lower legs. Usually chaps come fitted with either Velcro or a zipper down the outside of the leg. They have a strap beneath the foot, fastening them into place.

The better ladies chaps are available in high-quality leather, and come with various shapes and designs. Some options available include ultra-suede fringed chaps (made to protect from snowy and windy weather); tone-half chaps (made for comfortable riding, and easy to wash) Icon ladies kitty chaps, which feature full-length zips that allow for easy removal and Elite colored half chaps, that come in a wide range of colors (but not used for professional shows).


It seems easier to find chaps in any possible size than it often is to find clothing. Any retailer that sells medium or large chaps almost also sells the xl, xs and even the xxs sizes. So whatever your size, you can find chaps to fit your situation.

Purchase Chaps Online

In fact, it’s easy to find any kind of chaps you want, thanks to the Internet. No longer do you need to be close to a store that specializes in items for motorcyclists or horse riders. The Internet brings these specialty dealers to you–and affordably so.

So are ladies leather chaps right for you? If you want to ride horse in a work situation, you’ll certainly need them. And if you want to ride motorcycle, and look sexy while doing it with a stylish ladies leather jacket, then you too will benefit from buying and wearing them. So giddyup, partner, and check out what’s available in women’s chaps.

Smart Motorcycle Rain Gear For Women

November 5, 2014 | Gear | Permalink

womens-jackets-boxIn the big world of motorcycling finding the right gear is easy, if you’re a guy. With all the companies producing stock on the assembly line mainly for men throughout the 50’s to the present day some of the companies have failed greatly in adapting their demographic market to the huge rising number in women riders needing motorcycle rain gear over the past few years. When you are riding on a bike it’s of utmost importance to be able to move freely and easily, provide warmth, flexibility, ventilation and very importantly be water proof. It’s for this reason that more and more companies are slowly but surely catching on that women need motorcycle rain gear just as much as any guy.

What Gear Do I Need?

Well consider the following list is a good start:

  • Motorcycle Jacket
  • Motorcycle Gloves
  • Motorcycle Boots
  • Motorcycle Helmet
  • Motorcycle Pants

Motorcycle Jackets For Safety

Women’s motorcycle leather jackets are probably the most important for obvious reasons and are primarily designed for your safety as well. These stylish leather jackets are smartly padded with hard leather or sometimes even Kevlar on strategic points on your body like your elbows, shoulders, back and neck. If you ride any model of the stunning Victory Motorbikes like the Vegas 8 ball or Kingpin then chances are you want a Ladies Leather Jacket that compliments your bike in design and style. Make sure to get it fitted if you are tall or short.


If you don’t want your hands to freeze off or get ripped off on your first fall then motorcycle gloves are a necessity. There are different types of gloves that offer different purposes so make sure you know what you are looking for. The idea is to keep your hands safe, flexible, comfortable, dry, warm and make sure that you have a good grip on your handles.


Another important accessory here is motorcycle boots that serve a very important purpose. You’ll want your boots to ensure that you have a decent tread and foothold on your pedals so make sure they have a good grip thread on the soles. You’ll also want them to be breathable but keep your feet dry at the same time so have a look online or at your local Motorbike store that deals in riding gear. Good quality brands to consider may be Touring Dryline and Gor-Tex among many others.


Motorcycle helmets are so important it’s worth laying down a few points. You want your helmet to offer functionality combined with total safety. Firstly it needs to meet the standards of your local authority like in the U.S it’s called D.O.T (US Department of Transportation). They have set standards that bikers helmets need to meet in order to be deemed roadworthy.

Motorcycle rain gear won’t be complete without a decent pair of motorcycle pants which are preferably made of good quality leather. Make sure to get a pair that fits snuggly with enough room left for movement keeping in mind if you’re short or tall.

What You Need To Know About First Aid When On The Road

October 24, 2014 | Motorcycle Trips | Permalink

First-Aid-Signs-1391First Aid Training Courses

Being on a road trip on your motorcycle or whether you are just going for a nice Sunday cruise, knowing what to do when there is an injury is of great importance. Accidents can happen so quickly and when you are in the middle of nowhere and you cannot get to the hospital quick enough, you will need to know how to stabilize the injured until you an reach the nearest healthcare practice.

What These Courses Will Teach You

There are a number of things that you will be taught at a course, such as how to treat burns, what to do if someone is in shock, how to give CPR, and many other things. These first aid training courses can be taken through organizations like the Red Cross or the American Heart Association.

American Heart Association CPR Instructor Course

If you take part in American Heart Association CPR instructor courses then you will also be able to teach others about how to give first aid. You will also learn about what your first aid kit should include so that you can always keep one with you in your car and in your home. There are various levels of courses that one can take and the basic ones are always available throughout the year in all different areas. You can easily find a course to join in your home town. You can call the association of your choice, or you can also find the info you require on the internet about where the courses are going to be held.

Looking At The Costs Involved

Some courses that are offered are not very expensive, and some beginner courses are actually offered for free in some places. You will usually need to pay a small fee though to pay for the instructor, the documents and papers that you receive and for the small starter first aid kit that you get.

Courses For The Whole Family

There are course that are available for adults, and children as well, and this would be a perfect way to introduce your child to first aid and give them the necessary skills to be calm in an emergency situation and help someone in need. You also get special babysitter programs that will give you all the necessary requirements that you need to look after young children. Most parents want to know that their children are in safe hands with someone who can help them if necessary.

As you learn CPR and first aid you will have a much better understanding of how to save someone’s life. You will be able to offer someone resuscitation and start CPR until an ambulance can arrive, you will be able to clean, disinfect and bandage a wound of any kind, you will know exactly what to do if someone gets stung or bitten by an insect or animal, and you will be able to keep someone calm and relaxed under pressure. There are lots of first aid training courses available that cover certain aspects in more detail, so once you have completed your basic one, you can move on to the others and learn a lot more.

Getting First Aid Kit Supplies

If you are travelling a fairly long distance, it is a good idea to carry first aid kit supplies with you. You will have to make sure that you have everything you could possibly need in the case of an emergency or even just if someone has a headache. The best thing to do to make sure that you have everything is to make a checklist or get one from the internet, which has the correct first aid kit supplies listed as per government regulations.

A Medical Kit Identified

Aerostich-First-Aid-2Most of the time, the symbol for a first aid kit is a green background with a white cross on it, but many people recognize a first aid kit as a white box or bag with a red cross on it. A medical kit can also be identified with the Star of Life on it. Whichever you prefer, you should always carry your kit with you and even keep one in your house just in case there are accidents and you need first aid for open wounds or someone gets sick in the middle of the night.

What A Medical Kit Should Include

The majority of the contents of the first aid kit will be to deal with certain emergencies. This includes:

  • burns
  • cuts
  • pain
  • insect stings and bites
  • dehydration
  • cold

The official first aid kit supplies can be categorized into the following:

  • Airway, Breathing and Circulation (ABC’s)
  • Trauma Injuries
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Instruments and Equipment
  • Medication

For the ABC’s you will need to get a face shield and pocket mask for performing sterile resuscitation. Some advanced or commercial kits will also contain a bag valve mask and a manual aspirator among other things. For the trauma injuries, you should be prepared with various dressings, gauze, plasters, bandages, saline, soap, antiseptic, and in advanced kits, haemostatic to help the blood to clot in severe injuries.

Equipment And Medication

Personal Protective Equipment

When you move on to the personal protective equipment you will include:

  • gloves
  • goggles
  • surgical mask to reduce the spread of infection

Instruments And Equipment

The instruments and equipment that you will need to carry include:

  • trauma shears
  • tweezers
  • scissors
  • alcohol pads or antiseptic rub
  • a thermometer
  • an emergency blanket
  • penlight


You will have to think about every eventuality that might occur and prepare for it. You should always include pain killers including aspirin, anti nausea tablets, diarrhea tablets (codeine is a pain killer as well), an epipen, rehydrate, poison treatments, antiseptic ointments, burn gel, antihistamine cream, and any other medication that you feel necessary for your family, such as asthma emergency treatment.

The amount of items that you include in the kit may vary depending on how far you are travelling and where you are going. If you are going on a car journey for a day and you will reach a destination where there is a pharmacy, you might want to leave out some of the items if you do not have enough space. It is a good idea though to keep your first aid kit supplies with you at all times and ensure that if you use something you restock. You never know what can happen, and it is always good to be prepared especially when you are on the road travelling long distances where a pharmacy is not in sight.
