Your car should have at least three
ways to purify water, such
as water purification tablets, a water straw, and a metal
container for boiling water, which are all easy items to stow
away. As a backup, you could also have Emergency Drinking
water packets stowed away.

The road less travelled is never as interesting. Pack your
vehicles and enjoy when the rubber meets the road. You can
handle anything that comes your way, because you're a prepper!

Now let's tall about the ordinary things you'd expect to have in
your car...
  1. Airfilter - Be sure to check your car's air filter ever 12,000
    miles. A clean air filter helps keep damaging particles from
    entering your engine and causing increased engine wear.
  2. cardboard or cat litter - for icy and snow conditions to get
  3. car manual
  4. flare and reflective triangle
  5. first aid kit
  6. flashlight or a headlamp
  7. fluids - Oil change, transmission fluid, and radiator coolant.
  8. ice scraper
  9. jumper cables
  10. paper towels or sham  to clean windshield visibility
