Sometimes sh!t happens. good thing I didn't have a trailer load of horses in this heat on a busy hwy(although I could of hopped on and trotted somewhere,lol!) and roadside assistance might be a good investment!
I'm going to a show on the other side of the state this weekend, rougly a 5 hour drive. And of course its supposed to be over 100 degrees durring the day with an overnight cool of 80. And of course the earliest check in for overnight stabling is 3PM. I had the truck taken in and checked out again, and had him pay special attention to the cooling systems.
I have a lot of things on my packing list, but my US Rider membership pack is right at the top, to double and triple check. I cannot even imagine driving through the desert in 100 degree weather and blowing a tire.
That being said as I often horse trailer camp at these far away shows, in my horse trailer, I have:
A 10 X 10 popup shade tent, with insect screen walls.
2 folding camping chairs
An emergency lamp with built in rechargeable batteries, hand crank, radio and USB port for phone charging.
A camping fold out cot and sleeping bag. (I know some people just put a tarp over clean shavings but I cant do it. I always thing that I'm a sheet of plastic away from sleeping in her poo.)
A Cooler with popup table top.
Spray bottle of vinegar
Biodegradable toilet paper
First Aid kits for people and horses.
Portable Hot pen
The tack and horse supplies only go in and out for the show or event, but all that stuff lives in my horse trailer year round.
And of course my magnetic hitch alignment poles, and coupler and hitch locks.
