Car Care Tips – Volume 7
7. Survival Kit (Of Sorts)
Everyone should have a space blanket in the car, tucked in the glove compartment or some other storage space in reach of the driver:
The most complete survival kit in the world won’t do a bit of good if you’re upside down in a car you can’t get out of and the kit’s in the trunk.
The shiny space blanket’s ability to keep you warm could be a lifesaver — and it takes up virtually no space and costs less than $10.
Next things we’d add:
- Plastic bag for gathering snow or water
- Plumber’s candle & lighter
- Single-edged razor blade (cut up your upholstery for insulation)
- Empty metal soup can (for melting snow with the candle.
You can — and perhaps should — keep going (some people suggest packing a wordy novel). The more rural and remote your roads, the more you’ll want.Back To Promotions Page
