[QUOTE="Dr. Marneaus"] Do you guys carry fluids? (Honest question).[QUOTE]
I agree that the carry method is pretty cool, albeit expensive.
I really SHOULD carry fluids, but I don't right now simply because I haven't figured out a good place to store 'em. It's a good idea too though because even though the majority of the other folks on the trail with me have newer rigs, (by comparison to your rig) we still get in fixes where fluids are needed. In just the trips I've been on I have witnessed or (in one case myself experienced - oil pan) torn power steering lines, brake lines ripped apart, radiator hoses burst, transmission pans, oil pans and differentials punctured. Obviously no amount of trail repair is gonna help if you don't have access to a fluid that will suffice (urine only works in so many situations).
It's not only a good idea to carry extra fluids, but carry a shovel and heavy duty garbage bag to clean up the leaks.
