Keep Emergency Supplies in Trunk

I keep a small suitcase in my car's trunk with a change of clothing, personal hygiene products, and some spare money for emergencies. I also keep crackers, snacks, gum, and other food products there, along with my spare tire (always filled), some wood and fire making supplies, a spare blanket, and pillow. This insures that if some unforeseen catastrophe or emergency happens, I am able to take care of myself. These really take up less room than you would suppose.

Maybe beginning of every season (or any random date) ends (spring/summer/fall/winter), you can clean out the old snacks / cracker and replace it with new ones. ;-)

After what I heard this morning on the CBS Early Show, about GPS units leading people astray and some perishing because of it, I think you're wise to be prepared!
