Tip: Stash Emergency Cash! Clean out an empty lip balm tube (Chapstick, etc.) roll bills, insert, then cap on! Voila!
warning, warning: due to it's size do not misplace :o

Chapstick tubes are definitely the easiest things in the world to use. I only know one person who PROBABLY emptied one, and that's because he wrapped his name, number, and address around the tube so that it would be returned if lost. I know for a fact that someone returned it, but still not sure if he actually emptied it!!

* Rope (thin, but long)
* Small towel
* Screwdriver (phillips / flathead)
* Allen wrench kit (all in one thingie)
* 2x adjustable wrenches
* duct tape
* tire patch kit
* CO2 inflator
* LED flashlight and headlamp
* knife
* small first aid kit

There's probably more in there, but that's what I remember off the top of my head. It all fits into a small lock-and-lock waterproof container.

I'd like to see a pic of this box and its contents. Reminds me of a buddy who used to stuff a couple dozen "every day tools" in an Altoids tin can.

FWIW I'd recommend Gorilla Tape over Duck Tape anytime. It costs about $9 a roll in the U.S. but worth every penny. If you can find a place to get it cheaper then all the better!

Brings back memories of travelling through San Jose California in my CJ5 jeep and the clutch linkage fell apart. Made it to LA, some creative shifting involved, but when in LA bumped into some character with an old Caddy Eldorado with a trunk full of tools and parts, sometimes all you need is your fellow man and good karma. If you are the road and belong,it always seem to work out.

Sounds like a MacGyver episode. It's amazing what can be done with a little imagination and a Swiss Army Knife. ;)

I don't think nappy pins exist anymore?

They do still exist! In North America they are referred to as a safety pin or closer to your name, diaper pin. :)

It's all disposals over here. Has the world gone mad.

Mind you the smell of washing and drying nappies was awful

Agreed on the smell. And thankfully the cloth version is making a comeback here somewhat so hopefully less rubbish for our landfills.
