I am sure depending on where you live the types of kits vary. When I just drive to and from work my kit consists of winter gear, flash light, standard roadside emergency kit. When I decide I want do somewhere other than daily driving, I pack (depending on the season) is gear for the season, to include sleeping bag, the very important Poncho Liner (can't go anywhere without my woobie), food of course in the form of MREs or something that can be tossed around for awhile, & water bottles. Oh and some sort of politically correct protection device... usually a photo of Hilary Clinton is enough to scare the bears.

I have a roof pod that holds warm blankets, sheets, pillows and winter clothes. I also have a storage box full of survival equipment. Here is a few pictures of the stuff. See how many of the items you can identify.

Is that a emergency US Flag or kite I spy in your kit?

In addition I also have room for the 9,000 pound winch in the storage box. Above the box I carry the air compressor in a case and a large custom made first aid kit. I scrubbed in surgery for several years and can certainly suture and do minor surgery in an emergency if needed.

I wasn't talking specifically to you. I just thought we already had a thread like this. I haven't found it yet but I did find a thread on first aid kits that turned into a survival kit thread.

I searched and found one on survival kits also but it was old and could be updated by new members ideas.

i have a 72 hour kit in an army duffle bag. i usually always carry it. it has enough food for the family to survive for 3 days and eat like kings. we could survive longer if we ate less.

i also carry first aid kits, flares, matches, water bottles, my winch recovery kit, hand crank radio, coats, blankets, gloves, socks, shovel, saw, hatchet, bear spray, tools, and some other crap i can't think of. i carry it all in my storage box in the rear.

i think its a good thread. i like knowing what people use or carry with them to survive. i'm more interested in expedition style 4 wheeling. we often spend the night on a trail, and sleep in the jeep, then wake up in the morning and head out to another trail or location.

i'm going to add a .45 Cal to my collection as well for Grizzly Bears. Wyoming and Montana have open carry laws.

Oh yeah, also a couple boxes of Thin Mints. The freeze well, and aren't too damaged by heat either.
