I love the "    in a box" ideas and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a redneck in a box.  A friend of mine recently moved to Montana (I live in Wisconsin) and is kinda homesick.  I thought I could send him a box of things to remind him of home....but I can't think of anything...

Chewing tobacco (or just the case it's a joke right?) a red bandanna, a Willy Nelson cd, a flannel shirt, post cards with mullet pics on them for mailing you back, and.. I'm outta ideas. Oh a 4x4 magazine.. lol

I love the farmer's tan thing!!!  Duct tape is also a must.  And flannel.  The scary thing is the fact that my friend will find all of these things very useful- he won't realize it's all a joke.  He's a true redneck at heart...

A koozie.  You know... the foam huggers for beer cans.

Ditto on the duct tape, great idea!

Cigarette "wear" anything that you can find...that someone saved the UPCs from cigarette cartons, to purchase.  A "Marlboro" truckers cap, for instance.

Tobasco sauce... a redneck's gotta eat Smiley  And he loves to put it on his deer jerky!
or some good old fashion chili mixin's.

Dehydrated water (LOL) Take an empty sandwich bag...make a label for it & "instructions for use" Perfect for back packers.

A cord of wood...!  Take a few pieces of wood & tie a cord around them, lol.

You could make a gift basket out of all the stuff.. put it in a bucket & hang a tag on it that says "doubles as a spittoon or a toilet!!"

Or you could make a basket out of some (NEW!) tighty whities!  Sew the leg holes closed... filled it full of all the goodes & paint "Redneck Briefcase" on the banding.. Smiley

Tie a BBQ shiskabob skewer to a mouse trap.  LOL ~ lunch!


Do more of what makes you happy.

Well being from Arkansas I'm a little bit of an expert on this subject. Recipes for squirrel or opossum or raccoon are a redneck classic. As a general rule a good redneck barbeque should include the largest variety of dead animals possible. Also anything Wrangler is suitable.

I guess if Wisconsin is involved then the shooting of cats should be referenced in the package (that is hardcore redneck- and absolutely HORRIBLE!)

Life is a remembrance of the inert that's taken to dancing. Everything is all the same.

It definitely requires some kind of bumper sticker, preferably one referencing firearms.  Find or make them easily on the web for a couple of bucks. 

I also recommend including a copy of the Army's official wilderness survival guide.  I personally own it, and can attest to its greatness.


You can highlight things you think he might need in MT! 

I personally don't care for the Blue Collar TV/Jeff Foxworthy stripe of comedy, but if he's into it you could throw in a CD of that.  I would personally prefer to put together a redneck theme CD, with songs like "Redneck Girls" and other country tunes, that classic, "Convoy" etc. 

Finally, an absolute MUST since he's in MT, some home-made fishin' flies! Or supplies for him to do it if you don't feel like it.  Google "how to tie flies" for two billions websites with instructions.

Damn, is that how you spell koozie?  I'd always wondered.  And dehydrated water!  My dad used to bring home empty plastic vitamin packets and amuse us by mixing up some "dehydrated water" for us to drink.... lol  I didn't know that was a redneck thing too ... tho he is from Louisiana....
