Out of date

Am I out of date or are the little polls? I check in almost everyday and am never been able to participate in the polls. I always get a 404 ERROR message. So If everyone has this problem Why Take up the space?
Thanks for Listening
Roger

It's that time of year again, where we need to think about getting our trailers ready for spring.
Air up the tires, pack the bearings, check the fire extinguishers, and freshen the first aid kits...

Roger, I just checked the poll, and it is still open. There may be a setting on your computer that is preventing you from participating in the poll, Windoze is a strange animal.

Yup, Time to double check the date on the IV solution. I camp annually in a remote area with a group from church. While I've never needed more than minor things, I like to have a few things for the trauma that can happen under these conditions.

Those of you who have stated you're CPR certed, there have been some Huge changes in CPR in the last year or so, you may want to update your card.

Good reminders in this thread!
Dave

I think I'm going to make this thread "sticky", so it will always be near the top of the subforum it's in. I'd really hate for something bad to happen because someone didn't see this thread back on page 2 or 3...

As a rule, it's MUCH cheaper to assemble your own first aid kit. Buy a cheap tackle box, fanny pack or whatever works for you, and purchase the supplies to stock it.
When you buy a pre-assembled kit, you pay a premium.
FWIW.

We keep one in the trailer, one in the TV. Actually, there are several in the TV as we usually have our kayaking gear with us and we carry kits for the boats as well.

A box of bandaids and some Hydrogen Peroxide (which may be expired). Needless to say I need to get something set up.

Earlier this week, I found another item I'm going to include in my first aid kit.
Wire cutters.
I was following an obviously impaired motorist near the campground where we live, and he ran off the road, through a barbed-wire fence, and hit a tree. He was on the other side of the fence, and I couldn't climb over (barbed wire is very sharp). EMS arrived with a pair of bolt cutters, and got through in short order. There was a delay of almost 10 minutes where I could have at least applied direct pressure to the worst of his wounds.
He was airlifted to the hospital, I can only assume the worst (HIPAA doesn't allow inquiries about patients) as the Highway Patrol marked position of the car, took photos and measurements for a traffic homicide after a call from the hospital.

And while I'm "thinking", I wonder about intentionally packing stuff we don't know how to use. Things like sutures, splints, syringes, etc. Even if I don't know how to use it, at an accident scene there is a very good possibility one of the bystanders/gawkers may well have the knowledge to use what I have, even if I don't.
