Rus’ Stuff

Due to the whole concept of us being a team completely falling apart before we’ve even left Brighton I’ve no idea what the others are taking and I’m intending to be completely self sufficient in case I have to bail on them in order to survive. When I went to the USA last month I didn’t take anything, and it was a bit shit, so this time I’ve gone over board and am taking everything as we are taking a car. Hopefully it will fit in the big rucksack and the small gym bag as anything that doesn’t won’t be coming back with us to the UK..
