Important things that you need to carry:


Tools
- complete tool kit
- jack
- spare hose pipes
- spare fan belt
- radiator sealant
- swiss knife/multitool
- torch
- protective gloves / eye protection
- spare fuses
- recovery gear
- spare wiper blades
- WD40
- mseal
- spare number plates (ideally in sticker form). There are high chances of breaking the existing ones.
- make sure the spare wheel is upto the mark

Medical
- bandages
- alcohol wipes
- anti diarrhea medicine
- anti malarial medicine (antacids too if you are suffering from acidity)
- crepe bandage for sprains
- balm
- burnol
- tourniquet
- calamine lotion
- pain killers (combiflam, etc)
- antihistamines
- any other medication you need (diabetics and asthmatics especially)
- diabetics to also carry biscuits and sweets
- spare spectacles

Personal Protection
- mosquito repellant
- sunblock (water proof)
- windsheater/raincoat
- ankle length boots and/or gum boots
- long stick to probe depth of water / slush and help in walking without slipping
- sun glasses

Food
- Biscuits
- Chocolates
- Lots and lots of water

Hygiene
- Toilet paper
- Soap
- Soap strips
- Brush and paste
- Towels and napkins
- Hand sanitizer

Car documents
- Registration
- PUC
- Insurance
- Valid Indian driving license
- Tax papers

Others
- Trash Bags
- Jerry can
- Dry rags
- everyone please take your tetanus shots before coming
- Please avoid carrying credit cards. If required, just carry one card and note down the number somewhere. There are high chances of the wallet getting lost. Do not carry club membership cards, loyalty cards, etc. Do not carry all your money in your wallet. Spread it around in your pockets, bags, etc.
- Do not carry alcohol in your vehicles. If you are stopped by the cops, the organizers will not be able to help you.
-You will not get electric supply. Make sure you have a car charger for you mobile phones. I suggest buying the samsung marine phone which is completely waterproof. However, if you don't want to get one, please wrap you phone in multiple plastic bags.
-I repeat again, people who need to take daily medications, please carry two sets wrapped in plastic waterproof pouches and kept at dif places. If one set gets lost or damaged due to water, you will still have another set.
- Monsoon time is time for water borne diseases. I suggest you should get your shots for typhoid and hep A taken.
- Carry chlorine drops; incase water runs out and you desperately need to drink water from a stream.
- Extra socks. A wet sock is the worst thing. You'll be surprised how good a dry sock feels after a day of trudging through water.
- Change of clothes
- Avoid wearing contact lenses.
- A sweat shirt or jacket; it can get cold at night.

Please add to the list if i have forgotten anything.

Thanks a lot, this is really helpful for first timers like us. I only wish this list had been published a few days ago as it is too late to get the preventive shots now!

Sorry for the late post. Don't worry, we can give tetanus shots in Lonavla to whoever requires them.
