Hmmmmm, ace bandage ok, popsickle sticks (broken fingers?) ok, bottle of whisky?? A little too heavy and the glass might break. Better make it a good non-breakable flask!!

What's nice about a build your own kit is you don't end up with a lot of useless junk. I mean.. Who needs 100 pinky bandages that only fit an infant?

Umm...you're right.

The ace bandage is not listed because we always carried them (more than one!) else where in the backpack. When a knee would get sore then we'd pull one out and wrap the knee, more to prevent injury than to treat it. Sorry for the omission.

Did not carry popsickle sticks or any other splint material. Did carry a Swiss Army Knife that would fashion a splint from local vegetation. Should have mentioned scissors or something else to cut with. Also had a spare box of waterproof matches in there.

And a favorite treat for me was a 35mm film can full of cotton balls soaked in Camphophenique (not sure of spelling) that would sooth tired toes at the end of a long days trek.

Now the kit for the RV could contain lots of stuff like something for sunburn, poison ivy, stomach remedies and all that.

Yep, going in with a friend or two and making your own kits is certainly the best way to go.

Feel free to add to the list.

One thing I would suggest in ANY first aid kit is "Super Glue". Butterflies and such are good, but personal experience and a few "bloody" situations have made me a true believer in such a simple product as a "lifesaver". Closes cuts exceptionally well, reattaches skin from blisters, which saves on pain and dirt. is very quick and will seal without the struggle of trying to have a totally dry area to make adhesive backing on butterflies stick. Ladies will love it to save fingernails as well.

Can definitely tell you're a military man. Used the stuff myself for just such quick fixes a lot more then I cared to back when.
