If you are doing a round the world trip, try thinking about the stuff you'll need:

Security
Communications
Repair and maintenance
Spares
Kitchen wares & storage
Clothing & storage
...

Be methodical in your planning. Keep the weight to a minimum. Extra weight puts more stress on mechanical systems and reduces fuel economy/range.

IMO, YMMV...

If you are serious about an around-the-world trip you should really consider taking the little bit of time to upgrade your ham license to general class, and then get a 2m/6m/HF radio like an IC-7000 or FT-857D. Not only can you still talk on 2m to whomever is around, but if you get in the shit and really need it you can go HF 1000+ miles away. Side bonus is you can do e-mail over HF for free using WinLink to stay in touch with folks, and not have to pay $1 on an Iridium or Globalstar.

Whats your medical equipment plan? I think you'll be needing a "tertiary aid kit" rather than first aid haha. Prescription meds can mostly be had once you get out of the country for significantly less, but vaccines, tools, knowledge etc? You should at least get a wilderness medicine book, military medic's kit would be idea, sutures, Celox, trauma pads, you get the picture. Most of the countries around the world have hospitals that operate on the basis that you purchase and bring all the medicine, material, food, water etc that are needed to treat you. There are also many countries that don't allow opioid pain killers to be brought in, the work around is either hide it/bribe, or Ketorolac (Tordol) is about as strong as morphine but is an injectable NSAID. You should also have some injectable antibiotics (Ceftriaxone can cover you for most things from SSTI's to typhoid and comes in powder vials for reconstitution that handles heat well).

Get an iPad w/ 3G/GPS and put GPSKit on it, and then cache satellite maps of where you are going, and use the breadcrumbs feature of it... we did it when we went up to the Gaspe Peninsula and it was invaluable.

Looking to get under way in a month or 2..fiancee is a trained vet and has no problem sutoring me up...I am sure I could as well if the need arises...she is pretty good at setting up a good kit...I think we have caflex or something similar..bactrim or similar as well as maybe percoset for bad pains...neither of us get sick easily...will have to look into carrying stuff like that securely..will have her look into the ones mentioned..
Re computor..I have a touchscreen toughbook as well as an external touchscreen monitor..this way I can view my delorme program on a monitor the size of my sunvisor..

You need a rear winch tray to pull you out of the mud on BR238 in Brasil.... hehehehe.... and I know just where you can get one. Seriously, if you are interested in setting up a rear winch in your LR let me know, I have a brand new one ready to ship.

I've hosted a few world travelers on bikes and I can tell you that you won't need half the stuff people on this board have recommended. Don't get me wrong, my suspension is setup to carry 500 lbs of gear (I like carrying tons of gear) but reality is that you don't need half the shit.

Ramona E (who is now married to the owner of Touratech) stayed with us and she was on the road on a motorcycle for five years with a tenth of the stuff these guys are recommending.

I may be interested in that..I thought about going that route as well but I was concerned about it hindering easy access to the rear compartments...too much negative for the VERY few times I may need it... I have a 4000lb tirfor with a 75ft cable and an additional 75ft plasma winch extension cord... I figure if I need to go backwards my fat ass gets a workout as well..;-)..Most of the stuff I have setup on the trip is to make the camping lifestyle a little less rugged and to make sure I can get the vehicle out of any situation I have to.. I have sand ladders as well as a hi-lift jack and an exhaust jack bag.... I "think" i am going to be trying to avoid too much extreme off roading...I am contemplating taking my trailer with me with our motorcycles in it...may do some travelling on bikes every now and then...the fuel savings when doing this may offset the hassle of taking them... at least thats how I am trying to justify it in my mind... We have everything we need to do the whole motorcycle camping thing as well..

Vet, you're set then. Keflex + Bactrim + Ceftriaxone you'd be set (maybe levoquin for that who-dunnit), be really careful (hide that shiite) w/ the percosets (foreign gov't wise). Vets can get all this stuff, at the same quality standards as people drugs (thoroughbreds are worth more than any of us). I think everyone should have Celox and a trauma pad in their rigs. None of this stuff weighs anything or takes up room, and could get you out of many jams. Good luck, have fun.
