With this first aid kit checklist I want to help you to put your personal items for an Outback trip together. It is easy to forget that minor emergencies can happen during a holiday.
When you have already a basic first aid kit from your last trip, check the use by dates, and replace all old and worn out packages.
Being prepared for all kinds of emergencies is part of the Outback safety. You can put your mind at rest when you carry the essentials to manage minor accidents. And hey, isn't all that planning and searching for the right stuff part of the fun? :)
These are the items I usually take with me. This first aid kit information is only a recommendation. It should NEVER replace your doctor's advice and your own judgment. What you need depends on your destination, and how remote and rough your trip will be.
Don't forget to check your medicine chest at home. The items you store there might be useful to take for your trip.
Have a safe and healthy Outback trip!
