Crash kits

Posted By on December 23, 2009

So, about a year ago fearsclave posted about crash kits. Being that it’s getting to the snowy time of year, I figured it was time that I review mine.

Now, I should probably mention that I don’t tend to go off main roads when going to work. State highways, populated, with traffic. So, it’s unlikely that I’d really get into serious trouble for a period of time. Even in worst weather, I don’t think it would take more than an hour for someone to help or to get somewhere.

Thus, my loadout consists of:

  1. First aid kit
  2. Collapsible shovel
  3. Fire Extinguisher
  4. Small set of hand tools (screwdriver, socket set, etc.)
  5. DC powered compressor
  6. 50lb bag of sand
  7. A thick blanket
  8. A flashlight
  9. All the other associated stuff (spare tire, tire iron, jack, etc.)

So, think about what you need, where you go, and be prepared.
