All I had was bubble gum and a match!
I had a little adventure today while I was out riding. Up in the mountains outside of Colorado Springs, I came upon a guy and girl and their Jeep, sitting by the side of the road. They had been out there all night, and were waiting for someone to come along and take them back to town, I guess. I asked what happened.
The day before, they had splashed through some deep water, and sucked the water into the intake. Some other people had tried to help them when the battery went dead after repeatedly cranking the engine over, but the last advice they were given was to let the engine dry out and it would probably start. They had little or no tools to speak of, so I took out my OEM toolkit from my DR and proceeded to pull the spark plugs and the air filter, etc. to actually get the engine dried out. I lucked out that my spark plug wrench fit the plugs on the jeep, but if I had just had a crescent wrench, my life would have been much easier.
Long story short, I got the jeep running eventually after another guy in a Subaru came by and helped us by jumping the battery.
All this brings me to my question: What do you carry in your toolkits? Are there any tools that you just can't leave home without (crescent wrench anyone)? And what do you use to carry your tools, if you bring any?
