You probably fall into one of two categories when you see an article like this. The first category is for those who cannot believe there is yet another bag to pack.
It seems like we preppers need 10 bags for each unique situation that could occur. To you, I will say get efficient and whittle your survival tools down to a minimum. This will allow you to use one bag for many scenarios. Its all about those survival essentials.
The second group is those salivating at the delight of designing, mapping and organizing another survival bag or kit.
All kidding aside a vehicle bag/kit is a very important thing to have on hand. You should not be heading out, particularly on road trips, without a serious bag that will aid you in any disaster.
Seasonal Car Kit
Whether you decide to use a bag or a larger plastic container, preferably with a lid, you can outfit your car with all sorts of helpful seasonal preps. These can be changed out each season but will prepare you for the struggles that come along while you are on the road.
Your survival car kit should have items inside that maintain the vehicle and those driving inside. The contents of a car kit can be pretty unique to the person however, there are some basics you dont want to leave out.
Level I Prepping
This car kit is your basic travel kit and will take you a long way. It will get you out of a bind while you are on the road. However, this is just level I prepping. You can upgrade and go beyond the simple car kit.
In fact, you might one day find yourself working on a BOV or a bugout vehicle specific to preparedness. While this is a serious consideration, its still very much a reality for some preppers.
