Here is how you can create a winter survival kit that will give you more winter driving safety and security.
Below are directions for a winter survival kit that is so simple it fits in a coffee can.
We'll also tell you how to be totally prepared for any winter emergency that leaves you stranded. Don't be out in a Minnesota winter without some sort of survival gear.
Have you ever been stranded in a snowbound vehicle? We have and, after that experience, we made it a priority to have some basic supplies in each of our vehicles.
You can purchase survival kits that contain all you need to keep you safe while waiting for help to arrive.
You could also compile a stash of supplies from things you likely already have at home.
The basics can be as simple as what might fit inside a large coffee can.
Equip your vehicle with some basic winter survival gear. Here's what you'll need:
When your survival kit in a can is complete, place a stocking cap over the entire kit and stash it in the passenger compartment of your car. If you have a 3 pound coffee can, you will have room for additional items like band-aids, aspirin, a small radio, etc. If there is still room, add more of items you already have included or other items you feel might be necessary.
To be well prepared for a longer winter emergency, or to provide for several people, it is wise to store a number of other items in your car.
