Before we know it, Thanksgiving will be here. And before all of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season begins and you get too busy, I highly suggest to pack your winter survival in your Cadillac, Buick or GMC. You never know when Mother Nature will drop a load of snow so it’s better to be prepared early then be left stranded in the cold.
Winter Survival Kit:
Small candles and matches
Small, sharp knife and plastic spoons
Red bandanna or cloth
Pencil and paper
Large plastic garbage bag
Snacks – see below list
Cell phone adapter to plug into lighter
Plastic flashlight and spare batteries
First Aid Kit
Suggested Food Items:
Granola or protein bars
Raisins in small packets
Bag of Semi-sweet chocolate chip
Wrapped hard candies
Canned soup, meat and poultry
Before you travel, plan your trip well, check the weather and let someone know where you’re headed. Should you get into some trouble in a storm, don’t leave your car. Call 911 and get out your colored bandanna or cloth and tie it to your antenna to attract attention. If it’s snowing get out and clean off the window so you can see and you can be seen. But don’t over exert yourself. Keep warm, but don’t get too comfortable. You need to survive until you’re found!
Safe travels as we head into this winter season!
