This list covers most of the requirements for a long trip. It is unlikely that you would need to take along everything mentioned. You would need to choose your requirements based on the type of trip you are planning.

Use space as efficiently as you can. When travelling, the majority of your camping gear should be stored in metal trunks or drawer systems as follows:

• Tools and vehicle spares

• Kitchen and pantry

• Photographic equipment

• Keep food, water and fuel separate.

• Pay attention to weight distribution. Heavy items should be packed low down to not affect the centre of gravity.

• Ensure that your load is secure by using ratchet straps and bungees.

• If using an open vehicle, protect your load with a tarpaulin or tonneau cover.

My first 4x4 was a Nissan Hardbody thereafter I started travelling all over the country. In 1992 we held a big 4x4 day with hundreds of Nissan families, and then the 4x4 bug really bit. A friend Monty Brett and I started running 4x4 courses at the Hennops Off-road Trail just outside of Johannesburg. At first we offered day-and-a-half courses that started on Friday afternoon and finished on Saturday afternoon. Hannes Grobler the Rally Ace regularly assisted, and we reached a nice balance between our two styles and our skills.
