You easily can equip your vehicle with essential survival gear for winter. Here's what you'll need:
A 2 or 3 pound metal coffee can (punch 3 holes at the top of can, equal distance apart). You'll be storing the other items inside the can.
60-inch length of twine or heavy string (cut into 3 equal pieces - used to suspend can).
3 large safety pins (tie string to safety pins and pin to car roof interior to suspend can over candle).
1 candle 2" diameter (place on lid under suspended can for melting snow).
1 pocket knife, reasonably sharp (or substitute with scissors).
3 pieces of bright cloth 2" wide x 36" long (tie to antenna or door handle).
Several packets of soup, hot chocolate, tea, bouillon cubes, etc. (mixed into melted snow to provide warmth and nutrition).
1 small package of peanuts and/or a couple protein/energy bars, some dried fruit (such as dried cranberries, which come in nicely sealed snack packs), and even a little chocolate, to provide you with some energy or comfort in stressful times.
1 pair of socks and 1 pair of gloves or glove liners, depending on what will fit in the can (cotton is not recommended because it provides no insulation when wet).
2 packages of book matches.
1 sun shield blanket or 2 large green or black plastic leaf bags (to reflect body heat).
1 pen light and batteries (keep separate).
