The funny thing is that wasn't the color I was aiming for. But it turned out good and I like it. Also painted the small trailer I'm building the same color. Speaking of which I still need to get that trailer here to California so I can finish it.

On another note, I've been considering writing a technical book on the kind of travel I do. Stuff I would include would be; vehicle setups, fabrication, gear, equipment, supplies, extended travel (fuel longevity), backup skills for survival, field repair, cooking recipes, documentation for international travel, solo & group travel, mental stability for 3rd world trips (applies to US&Canadians), sponsorship how to and all of the other areas of what I've done and experienced. I get lots of emails asking how I do different things, so I though the best next thing would be to compile it all into a book. Curious if anyone would be interested that. Email me if you would be. travis at safaripacific.com

First aid/survival gear is yet another area I changed up a bit. This one was a little different though. I had a group contact me a while ago to assemble a first aid kit that would be compact, but contained necessary items. I contacted a few people I knew in the medical field for advice and found some wholesalers that would allow small order quantities for supplies. The result turned out nicely. I also tossed in some basic survival gear. All said and done the kits ended up costing $120 each. While assembling the kits I made a one for myself and for a few for other friends/people that were interested. In my personal kit I carry some allergy medication and cold medication. (Note: I didn't have the fire starters when I took the photo.)




The case I used is a Voodoo Tactical bag with molle straps. With it being a soft case you can stuff it in a corner easier than a hard case. The four straps on the back allow to attaching to something like a vehicle's roll bar or a persons belt. I put all the contents in plastic bags in so if the kit got wet, the items wouldn't.




Case

- Voodoo Tactical MOLLE Utility Pouch
- Measures 8.5" Wide x 4.5" Tall and is 3.5" Deep


Survival Gear

- Gerber Mini Paraframe Knife
- Brunton Fire Starter
- Brunton Micro Compass
- Mylar Blanket
- Signal Mirror


First Aid

- Scalpel Blades (2)
- Tweezers
- EMT Scissors
- Hemostatic Forceps
- Vinyl Gloves (2 Pair)
- Surgical Tape Roll
- Safety Pins (6)
- 5"x9" Abdominal Pad (1)
- 4x4 Dressing Sponges (4)
- 2x2 Dressing Sponges (3)
- Cotton Balls (4)
- 1"x3" Non-Latex Adhesive Bandage (20)
- Butterfly Strips (5)
- 2 1/4x3yds Conforming Bandage (1)
- 2x5yds Elastic Bandage (1)
- Triangle Bandage (1)
- Providone-Iodine Prep Pad (6)
- Alcohol Prep Pad (6)
- Sting Relief Pads (6)
- Burn Gel (1)
- Pain Reliever Tablets (2 Packs, 4 pills total)
- Antiseptic BZK wipes (6)
- Ammonia Inhalant (2)

Safari Pacific has a new joint shop with Desert Worx Motorsports in Temecula, CA. Our new shop will be the home of our expedition vehicle building & outfitting services.




Some of the equipment here at the shop. Mill & lathe.




Desert Worx Motorsports mostly does off-road race fabrication. Currently prepping Sheldon Creed's ProLite after the Dodge V8 swap. Getting ready for the Tooele, Utah race next weekend.
