What do we keep in our vehicles?

Postby Eddiethehead » Sun Nov 17, 2013 7:55 pm

I like to make sure everyone in my family has a knife, flashlight and some other supplies in their vehicle.
In my truck i keep a knife, (Buck 110), 110 lumen flashlight, couple bags of beef jerky, few bottles of water, trauma kit, matches fire extinguisher, work gloves, spare hat, a Leatherman, some fix a flat, tool kit. I would love to find a small CB radio, and more easily found, a police scanner.
And on the 8th day, God looked down on his planned paradise, and said "I need a caretaker."
So God made a farmer.

I am on one of my city's CERT teams. I always have my CERT bag in the car; FAK, helmet and vest, 4in1 tool(for shutting off gas and water lines), work gloves, Leatherman, prybar, duct tape, flashlight, write-in-the-rain notepad and space pen, mega-sharpie...
In addition I carry a case of bottled water, a dozen or so Powerbars, 100' of paracord, road flares, a can of sterno, magnesium stick, cheapo fixed blade knife, a couple of bic lighters, a set of universal wrenches, channel lock and needle nose pliers, a 4 in 1 screwdriver, wool blanket, and a couple of heavy duty lawn/leaf plastic bags.
Most of that fits in a carry-on sized bag, (except the water).
Then there's snow chains and jumper cables as well as a couple of ratchet tie-downs, (for the canoe).
The back of my 4-Runner is pretty crowded.

Before I sold my car, I used to have a bottle of water, a few chocolate bars, a knife, towing rope, a couple of flashlights, a reflex vest, a shovel, a few wool blankets and a lot of warm clothes. I was also planning on adding som small gravel or sand that I could throw on the road, but it never happened.

I have my emergency kit in my car. I usually have either my shotgun or M1 carbine locked in my car also. Once I get my truck it will be more permanent.

I have a digital duffel bag from boot camp, IFAK, weapons cleaning kit, 6 stick flares, a flare gun w/ additional cartridge, flashlight w' additional batteries, old school fox hole shovel, 1 box of MREs, a hatchet, a small comm radio, a sand bag of sand, 2 canteens, when funds permit I'll be adding a handgun. The trunk can be accessed from the backseat, if I had to leave my car I would take most of my list and 2 burped MREs from the box. I'd leave the sand bag of sand.

I am suprised no one has a radio. In any major emergancy the cell phones will be going down.

Any case I don't have a car and I am not allowed to give out all the details of what I have at work. Let's just say even though you could buy what we carry and maybe even better models it will cost you a lot of cash. I mean how much does a thermal cammra cost. And those things are great.

I do want some kind of CB radio. I don't have any money to spare at the moment, though.
