    Default Putting together a Skate Survival Kit.

    I was just thinking about this today just getting one of those small first aid kit bags like you can get at Walgreens and putting some stuff in it for those "Skate Emergencies". Here's what I was thinking for a start:

    Skate Tool (Duh!)
    Extra Bearings
    Spare Mounting Hardware
    Spare Bushings
    Some basic bandages, Neosporin etc.

    I was also thinking about ordering some of this natropathic ointment called "The Cream" from Australia that is supposed to be good for bruises, shinners, strains etc.

    Any other ideas.

    Good ideas. I was also thinking Sex Bolts since I do still ride with skidplates.

    Fortunately I don't live in Arizona where if they suspect you're an illegal immigrant they can ask you to show your papers ;-)

    Actually this is one of my favorite t-shirts:

    Actually these are good ideas especially since I went to have my after skate cigarette the other day and realized I left my lighter at my girlfriends house.

    Extra kingpin, shoelaces, cloth athletic tape.

    You might need a backpack for all that shit. Too bad dykes and fat old ladies ruined hip sacks for the rest of us. LOL.
