Really Useful Packing and Travel Tips

Hey guys hope you all are starting to unthaw. Now that Spring is on its way it's time to think about planning those trips this summer. I don't know about you but I spend all winter getting ready for my summer trips.

I have put together two how to videos that I hope you enjoy and find useful.

The first one is on how to maximize space and get the most packed into your bags.

The second video is a list of a few items that I always have on me.

I hope that you can use the info in these.

I always carry a stop and go plug kit and a mini compressor in addition to tools. I have used it many times and it has saved us out in the boonies where we had no cell reception and would have had to ride 40-50 miles for help.

Didn't watch the whole video but I'll add that spacesaver bags or even large Ziploc bags make it nice for smashing the air out of clothes to fit more in the bags.

Thanks Double0. That was a good video. I especially liked the rolling on the Tshirt at the end. I've used the rolling of the clothing along with zip lock bags technique.

Why would you pack stuff you may not use at all on your trip on top of things you need to get at once a day as he says??

Excellent videos and tips! Nicely done, and I agree, the t-shirt roll up tip is awesome, going to remember that one! Just subscribed to your channel. Keep the videos and tips coming!

One never loses perspective. It just changes over time.
