I don’t believe in sudden overnight catastrophe happening without any preceding signs, but I do like to be prepared in case such a thing happened. If you think about it the best place to store your survival kit is in your vehicle.
When Hurricane Mathew happened I was one of those who had to evacuate. Although I didn’t need to use my kit for anything, at least I had a peace of mind that I had everything I needed for emergencies in my car. The worst case scenario I had in mind was that route 95 will get flooded and I would end up trapped in my car.
This by the way almost happened to me when I was driving from New Hampshire south on 95 as well when a blizzard hit the area. Seeing all kinds of vehicles stranded in the snow, that’s when I learned to appreciate my car at that time which was a Honda CR-V.
Anyways, I have found this post here that kind of sums up what we might want to have in our car for emergencies. One thing I might choose differently is the choice of packing container. I would prefer having my kit packed inside a big metal can with a metal cover (like this paint can) The reason is that I can use it to boil water, make charcoal, or cook in it.
