Greetings all. December 26, 2015 I was stranded on a roadside in east central New Mexico during a raging whiteout blizzard. It's a long story but that's not the point. The point is that I was not prepared for that 12 hours or so in my stranded vehicle. I decided I should be more prepared. Consequently, I am papered to carry a concealed weapon, own appropriate weapons and regularly travel with at least one. I also put together an overnight bag. In instances where roads are closed, my employer gives sod all whether we make it home or not. There is a rumor that they will pay a hotel room for a night, assuming you can get to a hotel. The last 2 times such a thing has happened, employees were stranded in the building and left to cope. In either case - trapped in my truck, or stranded in a structure not my home, I have a bag for such a short-term contingency. I'd like to share the contents and maybe get some feedback. So, first the bag. Sorry for the color and hasty photography. Now, the bag empty. Here are the contents with notes: 1. Snack food 2. Space blankets (2) 3. Cliff bars, chocolate brownie and cheap granola bars 4. Hand warmers (6) 5. Emergency radio/flashlight/usb charger (also solar) 6. USB cable (there are a bunch of cables and a charger that didn't make it into the picture). 7. Headlamp 8. MRE, possibly edible, possibly not 9. 500 feet 550 paracord, orange 10. Socks and undies (2 pair each) 11. Tactical Shemaugh, olive 12. Short-sleeved T-shirt, orange (Cabo San Lucas) 13. Long sleeve T-shirt, gray (sanitized) 14. Leather work gloves 15.

I'll post it separately, but know that it supplements a much larger and more capable FAK that also resides in my vehicle. It's a 2-part kit - boo-boos in the front, blowouts in the back. Here is the small boo-boo kit with contents list: Pouch (from Walmart several years ago) Scissors Moleskin Adhesive tape Sunscreen (3) Insect protection cream (3) 1.0% hydrocortisone cream (2) Burn cream (3) Lip ointment Hand sanitizer (2) Insect sting relief (3) Poison ivy, oak and sumac clenser (3) Quick Clean towelettes (lots) Adhesive bandages, assorted sizes (lots) Do you EDC any such bag? Oh, meant to mention that this rig weighs in right at 20 pounds.
