Simple Emergency Prepping 1: Hidden Vehicle Survival Kit – Preparedmind101

Key word is SIMPLE. Nothing mind-blowing here, but how many people think about utilizing the hidden spaces in their vehicles? Chances are, when disaster strikes you are going to be closer to your vehicle than your house. But you don’t want to leave tons of stuff where it can be stolen.

    Late response new subscriber. Good video and important. Out here in Los Angeles our number one concern is a massive Earthquake that happens when you're away from home. At work (50 miles for me) or up state.. So our 3 cars each have a "Get Home Kit". Each car has enough gear, warer and food to stay out for 2 weeks. Including cash. Our strategy is wherever you are (for my wife and our college kid) is to check into a Hotel and base camp for a few days. We have a way to communicate via various methods, Facebook, email, if the cell towers are down. We feel a severe Quake will drop overpasses, cut electricity, people will loot and start fires. Our bug out plan is to stay at home which is fully stocked. There is no way to drive anywhere with millions on the road. Be well Chris.

    I had the window of my Ford Explorer smashed and my bug out bag taken. All in all about an 800 dollar loss. Lost my hammock, knives, pack, medical kit, cook stove, and all my other misc kits. It was down on my floor board under a wool blanket. The person that broke into my car got lucky. But I was horrified. I couldn't eat for a week. I'd of shot the guy if I caught him in the act. But let that be a lesson to everyone. People WILL steal your gear and precautionary measures need to be taken when you have gear in the car such as cable locks and having things very well hidden.

    Thankyou for your video it has a lot of good information but I am just curious that maybe you live in the south, the water I would like to carry but cannot in the winter. Well I could if I had a break free container that will take the expansion without busting.

    Put a siphon hose in there. In freezing weather use metal water bottles 3/4 full. You can heat a metal bottle to thaw it.

    Hi Chris,  Great Idea.  I used to have a compartment under the floor of my old S-10 Blazer.  Now I use the inside of the zippered spare tire cover of my SUV.  Gloves,Jumper Cables 2 small Harbor Freight Tarps one for kneeling , on or laying on when changing a tire or while working on the SUV, The other for putting a filthy spare tire in the rear over the carpet.  ECT…  Tow Strap & other stuff under the 2nd row seat.  keeps things out of site and uncluttered.

    Hey I got a crazy idea. Maybe lock your doors? even crazier…if you have to spend 4 years saving up to spend 300 on a probably can't afford it. Buy cheaper gear. Things don't get better as cost increases. At some point you have to realize knives are sharp pointy metal tools…not cool looking accessories to impress your friends..only women do that crap.

    No thief would ever look where your spare tire is?  Dude, I love you but you are soooooo naive.  Of course they're going to look there. This is really bad advice. A first for you.

    hey Chris you could throw in some trail mixes as food ,, they should be allright as long as you get the ones without the chocolate candies or dried fruits …just your basic nut mix trail mix (almonds walnuts hazelnuts peanuts etc) sunflower and pumpkin seed packs are also good to far as your proteins and carbs go Im pretty sure you know about rice and beans except if youre cooking it out in the wilderness i would suggest you get a coulpe of packs of Lentils instead of the beans, they cook a lot faster and you dont have to presoak them before cooking plus they are very similar in nutrition values (same family ) just pitching some ideas for ya dude…sorry to hear about your car getting hit by a whistler…

    This is a perfect application for the military compass. For general use I like baseplate compasses. However, the military induction damped compass will not be damaged by a wide range of temperatures. Oil filled compasses may develop bubbles.

    I like keeping an msr bottle with kerosene.
