  • Rohan

    We cal it the DOOM BOX M/ Its a small boom box witch we connect to our car battery so we can listen to metal at our camp site.

  • Neanda

    emergency blankie, that thing is water proof and keeps you warm BUT small enough to fit in your pocket.

  • Cyran Davies

    My legendary mobile hubbly bag which has been smoking it up since Woodstock7. It has been strapped to my spine for many a mosh-pit and I have even doubled back from MotherFudd to fetch it from home. Perhaps you yourself have shared a puff with me at some festival in the past?

    • Ed

    Fucking helium inflated dolfin lie-low… So I can jump high and drop some spirit on all them wolmer loving mofos!

  • Dale McHardy

    Don’t forget your D-pants! Otherwise you won’t be able to eat your N’apple before you go sleep!

  • Michael King

    The Shades. Never ever forget the shades. You don’t want to be squinting at your favourite band like some retarded Ninja Turtle that forget whether he already ate his pizza or not. Also, the right pair of shades could go a long way to keep you from having to rely on the Rubber Ducky, Kiep.

    • Ed
