You need to have one Hi vis per person in the car / van and they have to be accessible whilst in the vehicle so they cannot be stored in the back of the van or in the boot of a car. The idea is that you can put them on before you exit the car / van.

Things I take are Hi vis vests, breath test kit (2No.), warning triangle, spare bulbs (incl head light) spare fuses, head light deflectors, GB sticker, elementary tool kit, small fire extinguisher, sat nav, good French map book, log book, insurance documents, written permission to take car out of country (if company van or car), torch, phone charger, emergency telephone list, recovery details and low denomination notes for tolls. I also put in either jump leads or my mobile power source.

Something else I always do is give my mate a key to the van to keep in his pocket whilst we are away.

Boilies, its’ all down to personal preference. I always air dry mine but some take frozen, some shelf life. My supplier will start the air dry process off sufficiently so the baits are still soft but will last all week without problem. I just put them in a sack (s) and hang them in the back of the van for the journey, they are fine even if we are in the deep South of France. When I get to the venue they are hung up in the nearest tree during the day if the weather is good, if not they’re kept in the bivvy or the van.
