So, I'm a fairly new driver (about a year) I waited a long time and I now love it. My little 2002 lancer isnt fancy, but its getting the job done.
Emergency/survivalist kits always seemed cool to me, and I'd like to build a functional one for my trunk. I actually want to build two kits, the end of the world backpack, where-in I can grab a backpack and be prepared to hobo-it up, and the everything is in the fucking car kit, where in I can jump in my car and feel like I can go anywhere.
Anyways this is sorta just a fun extra curricular activity for me, oddly enough, but I'd like some help brainstorming ideas. I'd like both kits to be highly functional and not just zombie kits.
For the car, the range is "This towel in my trunk is convenient" -> "Oh fuck, I'm stuck in my car in a wasteland." The backpack range is "I'll be okay for this impromptu sleep over" -> "Major natural disaster? thank god I have my hobo it up pack!"
Help me H/A.
