Car Kit Revisited

It's that time of year once again to renew and replace items in your car kit to prepare for both cold weather and unplanned stays in the car.

I've pulled the wool blankets from the basement and have switched around the summer kit which included a large jug of water and replaced it with extra warm clothes, extra socks, blankets, food and water, lighting, hand and foot warmers, a shovel, a snow brush, and a couple of carpet remnants in case I get stuck on a patch of ice.

I'm very fortunate to have a minivan with massive amounts of storage space in the back so I can and do carry more than most but I am also preparing for an extended stay in the car with a four and six year old should the need arise.

We've got another big storm forecast for later today so we're going to just hunker down and wait it out.

Thanks for reading,

Add a wool or acrylic toque, a tow strap if one is not already there, and a bag of cat litter for traction.
