If you are going on a long trip, it’s wise to prepare for a scenario in which you are stranded without help for a long period of time. Here is a look at what you should pack in your vehicle’s emergency kit:
Your most pressing needs in any survival situation are food and water. If you are traveling on roads where you might be the only car around for a day, be sure to take enough high-energy snacks and water to hold you over.
No matter where you are going, it is a good idea to carry a flashlight in case you need to inspect your car at night. Reflectors or road flares will also help you remain visible to other drivers and potential rescuers after dark.
Nights can get cold in just about any part of the country, and cold nights can be killers. Some extra clothing and warm blankets can be a life saver if you get stranded on the wrong night.
Nature will eventually call no matter where you are. Pack a roll of toilet paper and some hand sanitizer on long road trips to be prepared for the inconvenient.
