Great kit! very similar to ours...I have addedd a change of clothes, boots ,etc..I wear "dress clothes/shoes" for work and do not want to hoof it unless properly geared up..5.11 covert tactical wear/boots works great, does not look LEO/Mil but very functional..Also, have 100oz camel back in ruck and purification tabs....3 3600 cal mainstay rats..Another handy tool is a pair of fence pliers in case we have to cross fences that boarder the roads/highways..these things will cut thru most any chainlink/barb wire fence...I was a fence installer in a previous life after my enlistment...also have 10 or so larger ZIP ties for lots of uses, (restraints, first aid, etc.)and a small roll of doggy do bags..They hold a qt of wanter and have lots of other uses besides the obvious....

if power is out and the vending machines are out side then they usuely plug into the wall right behind the machine, you can pull them out and plug them into your 300 watt converter and not make a bunch of noise by smashing the glass

Default BOV storage solution...

HERE's a YouTube link for a BOV project that I found kinda cool. The owner raised the level of the trunk floor, increasing the space in the spare tire storage area. His next video shows what he did with that extra space. It looks like he had a full-sized sedan. You're wagon may give you a lot more room under the rear deck if you were to do something like this. Obviously you would NOT want to do the modifications in front of your neighbors!! Good luck!

I currently carry a foldable camp (buck) saw, but I am thinking getting a small chain saw in case trees go down across the road. If the road is not a dead end I suppose the best alternative is a detour, but I am sometime on long roads for which there is no outlet.

If its to the point where you are using vending machine food for survival, use somthing heavy and break the machine. electric or no electric, a hatchet does the same job.

Real MRE's are good for 12 years if you keep them below 60 degrees F. Even after 12 years, you just have a degradation in taste, all the same nutritional value is there.

I carry much that has already been listed, but some things I hadn't thought about.

One item I keep I didn't see listed anywhere is an airhorn.

I need to beef my kit up but I recently added a fire hydrant wrench ($22 delievered). It could serve my purpose of drinking water, or water for the radiator while traveling. Without a fire hydrant wrench, you can't get the cap off or turn it on (5 sided bolt).

Alot of great ideas I need to get moving on. It is one thing to be prepared for an extended stay at home in case of disaster but reality is disaster has no schedule. Thanks!

This is are my basic emergency supplies in the back of my SUV.

1 pair jumper cables
1 jump start/battery box
1 ice scraper/brush
3 bottles of water
2 rolls toilet paper
1 roll of paper towels
1 small toolkit
1 pair pliers
1 pair vice grips
1 complete change of clothing
1 pair of coveralls
1 quart oil
2 emergency ponchos
1 red flag/rag/bandana
2+ hand warmers
1 mylar blanket
1 set of emergency hazard/flashing lights
1 set of reflective triangles
1 air pressure guage
1 small tire pump
1 pair of strap on ice cleats
2+ bungee cords
400 watt power inverter
Handful of various granola bars and trail mixes
Rope of different kinds

Not shown:
2 backup power inverters
1 CB radio with weather band
1 candle
2 lighters
1 Leatherman Kick
3 LED flashlights
1 oil rag and funnel under hood

I generally travel with my basic toiletries, first aid kit, backup keys, office supplies, and other frequent necessities in a backpack with my laptop as well. I'm sure there are things I'm forgetting, but it's a start. My supplies change with the seasons, and with the trip I'm undertaking.
