“A” Kit

One kit, my “A” Kit, allows me to travel light for the quick trips to the pool or local lakes, where I will be working on my skills or just putting on miles. It contains what I would consider the basics. I always bring my “A” kit. The other resources I would need to depend on are usually available as an outside source, such as a motor vehicle for warmth, or a change of clothes would be in the locker room of the pool.
