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
    traction
  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
  11. proof of insurance
  12. registration - yeah, you only need this one for the authorities
  13. spare tire
  14. shovel*
  15. tire jack
  16. tire pressure gauge
  17. tire chains
  18. WD-40
  19. wiper blades (replace them every winter)
