    What emergency gear do you keep in your HUMMER?

    Most of us keep some basic tools and comfort items in our rigs. What emergency items do you keep in your HUMMER besides your "bugout" bag?

    Does an Advil/Tylenol stash and a spare Pink Floyd CD count as emergency gear?

    The BOB goes into the truck when I use it, beyond that I have a few extra space blankets, and lifeboat ration bars (6x 3600 calories, 2 people for 3 days in cold climates). Some might consider my water carry to be excessive as well (usually 10-15 gallons, even for just the weekend). But, worst case I hang out and tune the radio(s) for a few days before rescuers show up.

    The rest can really be considered normal offroad/camping stuff.

    I've pretty much resigned myself to being one of the first survivors to go; I don't have this preparedness. I'll probably have to shoot Gunner in the leg to ensure I can outrun him, before I get taken out myself in a few (episodes) days.

    Dan, Dark side of the moon is primary, Animals is backup.

    Alex.....no need to shoot, I have been told I run like the breaking wind.....so you probably have me beat from the get go.

    Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.....sorry.

    I carry this stuff in my trunk at ALL times. A toolbox to repair most of the basics and certain specifics like halfshafts, balljoints and tie rods. So from a tools aspect I have most everything I need to be self sufficient to do repairs. I carry one halfshaft, a tie rod and a lower balljoint for spares. I have zip ties of all sizes as they can fix anything with a creative mind, 2 blankets, a smittybilt foldable shovel (thanks blacksheep, tim and the moab raffle!) coolant, a jacket, heavy pants, boots, a fire extinguisher, more spare clothes like t shirts, socks, etc. water, gatorade, small amounts of food (working on getting more emergency high calorie type meals) Battery jumper (awesome when no one else is around)

    I have more stuff, I just need to think and go through it all. My plan is to organize it and keep weight in mind. To me this isnt a vehicle I will buy, wheel for a few years and sell it. It is a long term ownership type deal. I may get a DD later on but with that said I am slowly preparing it to be ready for everything and anything. I hate being dependent on others so by the time I am done I hope to have a reliable DD that is ready for some hard, tough and challenging trails ranging from, sand, rocks, dirt, mud, etc and carry all my emergency stuff.

    Everything I buy from here on out will have a few things that need to meet criteria, compact, light and durable. I wanna save room and use it wisely and keep the weight down for wheeling.
