Just put together a mini first-aid kit that should cover what we need.
- Athletic Sports Tape, 9m – Can be cut for small band-aids or large sprains. And as Tim Ferris points out, it’s a life saver and doubles as duck tape (though I’ll be bringing that along as well)
- Sterile Pads - can be used with the sports tape for homemade band-aids or gushing wounds.
- Band-Aids – So you don’t have to go ghetto with sports tape and tissues.
- Ibuprofen – For hangovers, headaches, and general pains
- Neosporin Antibiotic, max strength
- Benadryl (Diphenhydramine) – great for allergies, minor colds, or falling asleep on overnight trains/planes
- Clartin – generic versions for my allergies
- Dental Floss, 200yrds – Unobvious uses include sewing or tying something together.
- Large Nail Clippers – cause we’ll be living the fancy high life :p
- ChapStick – I went medicated
- Gold Bond – For all over, from your feet to ‘down there’. I went extra strength medicated.
- Malaria Medication – Doxycycline, daily, 2 days before, 28 days after
- Anti-Diarrhea Medication – Azithromycin
