    I don’t give them out I kept the whole stack. See This guy is the best even done Lions. He lost the use of his hands doing my Turkey. But I got it back shortly after a year. Oya the property owner gave him an extra hundred bucks and he got his back pretty quick.

    Great suggestions here..I’ll add another.
    If you sleep in your vehicle these are a must ! Mesh window cover to keep bugs out. Costs $15 & slides over the window frame allowing you to adjust window as needed for ventilation. Also provide sun protection.

    Medium- they are slightly oversized but the small had a tiny gap at the base due to the door curvature on the 4Runner.

    Lol. A lot of it is stuff that I put in there one item at a time, and just never removed it. It's nice knowing where things are, and this way I won't forget them when I go on trips. A lot of the stuff like the bug nets and headlamps are great for when I'm camping, and those are the types of things that I tend to forget.

    Some of the stuff I use quite frequently, the sunscreen, wet wipe, bug spray I use pretty much every time I go mountain biking. I also use the dog stuff quite a bit as well. Some of the other stuff like the hatchet and the recovery gear I've never used, but it doesn't take up much room and I'd rather have it and not need it and vice versa.

    Some people complain about the interior storage of the 4R, but I find it's pretty handy. I have all that stuff squirreled away just in the regular pockets and center console. The only thing that's really sitting out is the tool bag.

    If I was a YouTuber maybe I'd do one of those walk around videos, haha.

    Trauma bag was a gift from my nephew who is a first responder.

    He gives demonstration/instructions on the how to use couple times a year.

    Good on you, skills like that are easily lost. Look into stop the bleed courses as well, they're an excellent refresher.

    I don't know what your "Pro rescue kit" includes, but I would add a signal mirror, some emergency whistles, a couple of well sealed pints of white gas (AKA Coleman fuel), and perhaps a couple of quarts of engine oil. In the event you need to be found, you gotta make yourself very visible day or night.

    One thing to watch out for in these new summer temps: I always carry a disposable lighter in my 95's center console. Yesterday me'n Mama left the 4Runner home, sitting in the sun, and took a little road trip in her car. Last night, I went out to check on soomething in the truck and found the console open, and the shattered body of the lighter lying out on the seat. Too much heat--BANG! Fortunately, none of the .22 Ruger carbine mags was damaged; glad there weren't any matchbooks in there.
