Re[2]: hard shoulder manual and spareparts



Oh man, I did forget to mention a pocket knife, good call.  I do carry one, 
though, in the glove box.  The multi-screwdriver is a good selection as well -- 
gonna have to upgrade my toolbox.  I disagree about the cellphone as I totally 
abhor 'em (pagers are a close second) but, yes, they are a good item to have if 
ya gotta.

I picked up one of those multi-drivers that has phillips & flat bits in differen

Fire extinguisher optional? I disagree, should be right near the top of the 
mandatory list.

S'okay Toby, I'm a safety geek too ;-) Though when I stop to help folks at midni
ght
on a deserted road and they see some guy wearing a leather jacket and dreadlocks

step out of a bright purple car they are a bit hesitant to accept the help... go

figure.

You forgot a pocket knife though... AND a cellphone...
