    What would you never go on a m/h trip without which is not the blatantly obvious ( fuel, money, mobile, maps etc)? Looking for the obscure which may turn out to be incredibly helpful (especially to the m/h uninitiated amongst us)

    Useful stuff:
    Cable ties
    Gaffer tape (both these will fix loads of stuff!)
    Black sacks (good for wet clothing, boots, etc.)
    Kitchen roll (good for the first wipe of crockery so you don't get smelly grey water)
    Tea towels (apart from wiping up, they cushion noisy items in the cupboards when travelling)

    Essentials:
    Corkscrew

    Steve :Smile:

    Oh, nearly forgot, a copy of Brit Stops!

    [edit: mitzimad beat me to it!]

    In various sizes and should be in every first aid kit as they can be used for sterile covers for badly cut fingers and hands - keeps the blood off everything else whist you get help.
