As soon as I heard about the Go Box idea from the guys at Alpkit, I loved it and knew I needed one. I got a box from Ikea and spent a contented few hours sorting all my gear and making my own adventuring Go Box!

Basically the idea of a Go Box is having all of your stuff in one place so that you are ready to go at a moment’s notice or whenever the need to escape arises! I decided that my Go Box was going to have everything in it that I needed to go on a day trip adventure, either on my own or with the kids, at the drop of a hat. Basically all I need is this box and the outdoors!

List of stuff currently in my Go Box, in no particular order….

  • First aid kit
  • Jetboil – for making hot drinks or food
  • Coffee – obvious reasons
  • Pacmat (And if you want 20% off enter Revitalize20 at checkout).
  • Drybag – This one from Alpkit has a strap so I use it as a day bag to carry around the essentials from the Go Box when we are out on the adventure!
  • Micro fibre towel
  • Lip balm
  • Hip flask – for adult adventuring
  • Moisturiser
  • Wet wipes
  • Swiss army knife
  • Pasta
  • Tuna
  • Pasta sauce
  • Sun cream
  • Head torch
  • Hat
  • Spare socks
  • Kids aqua shoes and waterproof trousers
  • Cutlery
  • Maps
  • Solar powered charger

The box now lives in my car and it means everything is in one place so I don’t need to spend time faffing about getting everything together. I feel much more organised and it will hopefully mean I get to go on some epic spontaneous adventures with my friends and family!

What would be in your Go Box? Am I missing anything?
