What should I take?
Common sense dictates that you should have the car
serviced before you go. Check you have a spare wheel and the
necessary tools, such as a jack. 4WD vehicles owners, often have
a range of other equipment as well.
When travelling to remote
areas, ensure you have spare water and some non perishable food
stashed / tucked away in your vehicle, a good idea if you get
delayed between towns or because of weather. This bit of
planning will make an unexpected delay, a comfort break rather
than a big problem due to lack of water or food. Make sure that your planned
en-route stops, will have any necessities, such as fuel.
