Major intersection in Memphis shut down yesterday for almost 12 hours after gasoline tanker truck carrying 6000 gallons of gasoline overturned:

Took some people only going a few miles over 2 hours to get there. I guess I think about this a lot as a mom that has had little ones in the car often - not only from a keeping snacks and portable potty standpoint, but we also keep a trauma kit, first aid kit, masks, fire extinguisher and many other items - you obviously never know when you might need them!

You need to figure out where your RR tracks are, we live a few blocks from a RR track.

Trains derail, sometimes they hit cars, you need to know if you are upwind or down and how to go around roads that may be blocked by RR crossings

I'm just glad I always take the south leg...

having preps in your car is always a good thing. I have a case of bottled water, emergency blankets, tools, some beef jerky, peanuts, knives, flashlights (hand crank kind), a CB, phone charger, fire extinguisher, and flares.

Another good thing to have when driving is the ability to fix your vehicle if it breaks down. I have in each of my trucks, a Haynes repair manual (complete tear down and rebuild of your specific vehicle, with pictures), a replacement S-belt, some emergency repair hoses, tools, fix a flat, and a four way lug wrench.

Having preps in your car is good for when you get stuck, but having the ability to get unstuck is also good...
