Tell us about yourself!
During hiking trips, I use a large freezer ziplock as a water bag. Scoop water, add chlorine, seal and wait 30 minutes. or just leave it in full sunlight for 4 hours. I put the water in plastic bottles for packing, but the point is you have a large foldable water container for in camp.
I did something similar but you can get a voltmeter that looks very similar to the one in the instructable except it has two USB sockets. Lets me use the GPS on my phone for extended periods without draining the phone's battery
I put it on my feet to prevent blisters on long runs. Also to prevent chafing in other areas. Running stores sell Bodyglide for this, but Vaseline works perfectly. It really helps even on existing or broken blisters
Nice Work! I found I can lift the rear wheel off the ground by rocking the bike onto the side stand. I then put a jack stand underneath the foot peg bracket (on the upper side) This puts the bike in a stable position with the wheel off the ground. Works well for changing the sprocket and chain too.

@dalee yes, they're driven carefully when people are in the back. Even moderate braking and turning feels like an emergency maneuver when you're in the back. The trip to the scene is a different matter however. By the time our trucks are auctioned off, they've seen some hard miles
Ambulances are regularly maintained but they are driven hard especially in urban areas where there's lots of stop lights. During an emergency call, they come to the lights and hit the brakes hard, then floor it when the intersection is clear. Be prepared for worn out brakes.

@M2aestro No harm, no foul.
Craig, I noticed some of the comments are from six years ago. Your comments are certainly true in this age of cheap durable imports but I'd imagine 'back in the day' this project would have been ahead of its time. I'm guessing prices and available parts are different now
