Re: What you should always keep in your rig

Very good point on the silicon Shannon... And the bleach tip is the sort of stuff I was hoping people would say they were doing. I just don't want any of you guys to get sick by throwing 100 percent tap water in a canteen and letting it sit for months. All of this stuff is great discussion.. I am looking at adding a few more items to my car pack now.

Also, I like your idea of the fire starter. I have the water proof matches but why not have that too. Not for nothing, a new dad here, so why not have everything you can ever need?
My sons going to arriving here in Mid Feb. so I understand where you are coming from....we want to be sure to be prepared for anything!

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

I think there are some french fries in the old McDonald's bags in the back seat, saw a couple skittles on the floor too.

For everyday driving I make sure I have a coat when it is cold. If I can't walk a couple miles to get home or into town I am in deep chit anyway, 911 would get called.

But there really isn't any food in our vehicles, people are not authorized to eat food in our vehicles, beverages in a container with a lid that can be sealed 100% are tolerated. No, I'm not kidding.

LOL. Man, when my wife took a cup of coffee into the car, I asked her (gently of course) to go back in and get a top to the cup and don't put it into the cup holder bc it could spill. Of course her response was, "then why did the car come with cup holders in here then"? And my answer was, "not sure, but it isn't for liquids". She just doesn't understand..

My wife fully understands. She totaled her last vehicle, the interior still looked brand new in the car with 118,000+ miles on it. The Trailhawk is her vehicle, I have several vehicles ('12 Camaro, '02 Focus, '90 Firebird). The 2 new cars get the white glove treatment.

We do have a small tool kit, but I think I need to add some provisions for a little trail driving we want to do. There are really good lists to pick and choose from here.

Where have you mounted fire extinguishers? It is mandatory to gave one installed, in my opinion. It would be preferred to be within each from the driver's seat.

Thanks+- Eric

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

As of now I have it in the back of the rig, but in a prior post, (i forget who) posted an awesome location for mounting. He did mention the fact that he had to move it bc of the seat position... but other than that, it was perfect mounting spot.

You'll know what I mean when I send you the link.

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

Another option for a fire extinguisher is under a rear passenger seat. In my 2014 GC Limited I have a 10BC extinguisher under the driver side back seat. It can slide in from the door, I have a mounting strap keeping it in place. I had one in the way back originally, and have seen another person putting one under the front passenger seat. I suspect that might be a smaller extinguisher, maybe 5BC in that space, but certainly another good alternative. I like the ease of access in this location, and it's on the driver's side. Also, in this position, you can still tilt the seats forward without moving the extinguisher.



Cheers,
Ron

Re: What you should always keep in your rig

Some great ideas on these pages. In the spare tire area, I have built a kit to deal with things I expect to encounter. There are some great preparedness ideas at EQUIPPED TO SURVIVE - Outdoors Gear, Survival Equipment Review & Survival Information

Rather than listing my kit, it's easier to say that you have all provided great ideas. Our lists aren't the same, but they rhyme. The thing that I probably overdo it on is first aid, having a pretty significant outfitter style kit. Having said that, I did take Wilderness First Aid from NOLS. Training is very important. I think it's the Boy Scout in me.

One thing I will suggest... if you have every nook filled in that spare tire area, make sure you have something to put everything in when you have to use the spare tire. I keep a couple of 4 mil contractor bags in the back, useful for many things, but one of them is a place to stow all the gear quickly when you're taking out the spare. You can set it down without everything getting wet, and when you're done, just throw it back in the car, and repack it when you get home.

This becomes more important when you have all kinds of stuff back there:



Be prepared,
Ron

Wow, that's a lot of gear stuffed in there. What exactly is a "4 mil contractor bag?"

Thanks- Eric
