How to pack for an RV trip

  1. Scoop shovels: Cover up the concrete you’ll be skiing over faster and more efficiently!

  2. Yoga Mat & Foam Roller: Stay loose and limber after you fall down concrete stairs everyday for a month straight.

  3. Work lights & extension cords: For skiing at night, where you’re not supposed to during the day.

  4. Sleeping Bags: Because sleeping in an R.V. in February is not the warmest thing to do.

  5. Safety Mack Jones: Need someone to direct traffic when you’re landing off a handrail into a busy street? Mack is your guy, and he’ll do it as politely as possible with a smile on his face!

  6. Winter boots: Keep your toes warm! If you sweat, you die… Our Full tilt boots get pretty sweaty after a day of skiing, so it’s nice to have a change of footwear.

  7. Propane Torch: Ever tried building a jump out of snow that fell over a month ago, and has frozen and thawed countless times? So have we, and the heat from a propane torch makes the process a whole lot easier.

  8. Helmets: Safety first kids!

  9. Video & Photo Cameras: From digital to analog we shot it all. HD, Super 8, JPEG, & 35mm film. Documenting ski stunts with different forms of media.

  10. Water & Gasoline: Keep yourself, and your R.V. hydrated!

  11. Collapsable lawn chair: Press record from the comfort of your chair (when it’s -30 degrees)

  12. Assortment of Line Skis: Blends, Bacons, and Chronics. Skis for all conditions you might encounter on the road to the Yukon.

  13. First Aid Kit: Never know when you’ll get an unexpected BooBoo and need a Band-Aid.

  14. Bungee: Speed maker for smaller spaces where the winch is not a feasible option

  15. Winch: How do you generate speed on flat ground, and ski entirely too fast into street features? You guessed it: A gas powered winch.

  16. Steel Shovels: Essential for breaking up, and shoveling snow that may not exactly classify as fresh pow.
