..... or is that saving some space?

I'm into Green Bags, but with a difference.......

Check this out

http://www.4x4wire.com/trail/technique/making_it_fit/

I have been doing EXACTLY the same thing. I now have a mezzanine with lots of empty Space Cases, and EVERYTHING has been transferred into green heavy cotton zip bags from Kookaburra.

I buy these bags in a variety of sizes from my mate 5 doors up my street... TJM. They cost around $12 - $17.00 Each.

Recovery gear, including ratchet winch goes in one.
Complete kitchen ( for me only ) goes in another.
Food goes in two more.
12 volt lighting stuff into another one.
Tools into yet another.

These bags are the Bee's knees........ really strong.
Now I simply drop them in low in the floor wells and the like, keeps weight down low, and they seem to take a LOT less space.

I might put some labels on them, like the ones you get at the airport, so I know which bag is holding what.

Darn!

I was thinkin' that I was gonna be like a trend setter!

I wish I had done it before.

3 Space Cases @ $100.00 each........

Another plus, is that the small bags are heaps easy to lug around.

Okay, I'll take second prize.......

I like to use conference satchels Wolfie. Have one with two snatch straps and shackles under the seat when travelling.

Another with pockets on the back wall of the cab of the GU down low to act as an organiser too. Place for a PDA, also the chargers, pens, notepad, memory card reader and the like. Good to have power leads stored too. Another that stores larger hangs beside it - jumper leads, alcohol wipes (teat wipes to dairy farmers).

Old coloured pillow cases for 12v fluro lights - makes them easy to see and keep the cords from tangling.
Cheers,
Who?
