My medical kit
Ipren (Ibuprofen -avoid taking this at altitude)
Imodium - excellent for stopping temporary diarrhea
Dr. Scholl Moleskin Plus or Band Aid Blister block- to prevent blisters
As we will be a group of fishermen the following items can be shared within the group
Non-fluffy burns dressing
All the above, needless to say, are kept in a waterproof bag, clearly marked as a first-aid kit.
No illnesses, no headaches, no cuts or accidents of any kind. Great. I didn’t even fall into a river this time. The
worst thing that happened were sand fly bites. One thing in the kit but not mentioned was a small pair of scissors. Perfect for cutting finger nails and trimming my beard. Due to stringent airline regulations make
sure that they are either kept in your checked baggage or have rounded points. On a subsequent trip to Tunisia I found that the Alvedon and Ipren were in great demand as I got a terrible cold with an abominable
headache. Paper hankies were a must but they can be bought anywhere on NZ so nothing I would take with me.
