Here we keep a record of the '''collective equipment''' needed/thought/available for each Biketour.
  
==Planned Group Equipment List for 2012==
+
If you want to know what you should bring generally see here -> [[What_to_bring|participant equipment recomendation]] or in the FAQs on www.ecotopiabiketour.net
* [[Trailers]] - We have two trailers in Barcelona, do we need more? Austin offered one.  
 
* [[Rocket Stove]] - something like 2010 rocket stove - light, ecological and mostly free
 
* [[Biketools]] - maybe we could rely mostly on personal tools (but it wouldn't hurt to have some common tools)
 
* [[Medical Kit]] - same as biketools
 
* [[Cooking utensils]] - Pots, cutting board, knifes, grider,
 
* [[Propaganda Material]] - Booklets, leaflets, t-shirts, stickers, posters, whatever, screen printing stuff
 
* Camping equipment - Laura and Ben have some sleeping bags, mats etc which people can use if they need them.
 
  
==Planned Equipment List for 2010==
+
Things often get left behind and often get mixed up with (particularly kitchen) equipment of the projects. One important tip when acquiring communal equipment is to '''choose items that have an exceptional design'''. Experience shows that even the most useless things don't get lost for months if their look is easy to recognise, but even the most essential things get left behind when no one is sure if they are ours or belong to the project.
  
Trailers - 2 or 3 - we are still trying to get 1 or 2 from Zagreb (we need to replace their axles and generally do some maintenance before using them), plus Moritz' trailer, maybe buy another one?
+
== Permanent equipment ==
  
Rocket stove - one large and one small - we need to build these - maybe a workshop in London or Yorkshire?
+
Equipment that does not get used up and that we keep over the years.
  
Gas stoves - only small ones which some participants bring with them?

Here we keep a record of the collective equipment needed/thought/available for each Biketour.

If you want to know what you should bring generally see here -> participant equipment recomendation or in the FAQs on www.ecotopiabiketour.net

Things often get left behind and often get mixed up with (particularly kitchen) equipment of the projects. One important tip when acquiring communal equipment is to choose items that have an exceptional design. Experience shows that even the most useless things don't get lost for months if their look is easy to recognise, but even the most essential things get left behind when no one is sure if they are ours or belong to the project.

Permanent equipment
