    So with getting a SUV with lots of room it’s got me thinking. EDC isn’t just what’s on our persons all the time, it’s what we keep in our vehicles. Wether it be Bugout supplies or just spare items. I’m interested in what you guys keep at all times in your rides! I’ll post pics of mine after I get it situated how I would like, but for now I’ll make a list.

    Up front with me in center console:
    -spare flashlight
    -knife
    -multitool

    Back:
    -tow rope
    -jumpers
    -mag light flashlight
    -hatchet
    -spare water
    -general purpose med kit.

    I have lots more to get to be properly prepared but I will slowly ad on. Let’s hear what you all have!

    Just how I’m starting to set it up. Need to get an organizer for up top and get a newer tool kit in a bag not plastic case as the plastic slides all over the place.

    I recently downsized from a campervan to a minivan rigged as stealth camper.... with enough camping/backpacking gear for self-supported camping for a day or two.

    I always have some type of ground cover / heavy cloth in case I need to kneel / lay on something to change a tire or otherwise work on the car in inclement weather. Recently, I got a free moving blanket w/purchase from Harbor Freight which fits the bill. Ever change a tire on new, black asphalt in Laughlin, NV on a 105F day? I have, and it absolutely roasted my knees, and quickly, too.

    I keep a piece of HD foam that once was a pad for under a sleeping bag in my car for that purpose. Some folks have also recommended a scrap of carpet for kneeling on. Even better for anyone in snow country: get two pieces; the rough backing can be used to help tires get a grip to get off of an icy patch! If you don't have any scrap carpet at home go to a local flooring store. They're always having to toss out samples of carpet that are not being sold any longer; they may even give you a couple of pieces if so. (I used to work in flooring you see!)

    L'chaim!

    Some great suggestions here so far.

    My wife and I always keep large totes in our vehicles to corral purchases (especially groceries) and make them easier to carry in the house. We use a couple Thirty-one Utility Totes each - they’re well-built, relatively inexpensive, and carry a bunch.

    I keep a few other smaller packable bags as well - a backpack and some small totes. There’s usually a hat/cap or two in my glove box to keep my bald head warm or protected from the sun.
