Hey guys! Here is some good information I found from Occupy Dallas on what to bring for overnight stay. I have no idea if we will be arrested for sleeping in the park, but my feeling is that the more people we have the less likely it will be.
PERSONAL SUPPLIES TO BRING :
Clothing for warm and cool weather. Wear layers, so you can remove items as needed.
Practical, comfortable shoes. Avoid sandals, anything open toed, high heels, etc. stick to athletic shoes or work type rubber soled shoes and boots with laces/zippers. Bring several pairs of socks.
Comfortable sturdy back pack
2 liters(min) of water in a non-glass sealable refillable container
Assorted portable foods. Snack/granola bars, protein bars, nuts (unsalted), dried fruits, fresh fruits (apples, oranges), MRI's. Avoid junk foods, chips, candies, colas, pop tarts etc… You'll need protein and nutrients.
Your own utensils if u feel you might need them.
small, legal pocket knife,
A basic first aid kit, alcohol wipes, neosporin, bandages, ANTI-DIARREHAL, allergy meds, vaseline and SUNSCREEN
Wear your glasses if possible, contacts and solutions will create a headache and pepper spray is hell on conatacts
swimmers goggles (airtight) and nose depresser (in case of gas/spray)
small bottle of dawn dishsoap (helps with removing the gas/spray)
Hand soap, washcloth, small towel, bandana,
personal hygeine (toothpast, brush, deodorant etc..) personal preferrence but noone likes the stinky kid
TOILET PAPER (2 rolls)
handheld LED flashlight (crank type is best or have extra batteries)
May sound silly but bring a pen and notepad.
A watch is a good idea.
If you want bedding, make it practical, and learn to store it in a roll that you can tie to your pack.
Practical means its big enough for you, no king sized, queen sized or even full sized comforters.
Your pack will suffice as a pillow.
If you are bringing personal electronics, bring extra batteries, memory cards, etc. Tether them to yourself, or your pack, Mark them as yours, and remember THEY ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. Don't whine when/if they get damaged, stolen, misplaced, etc.
Bacpacks and fanny packs
Hope this info helps!
