Basic Vehicle Survival Kit for Urban Dwellers

When I lived in rural MA as a child, I knew the ins and outs of New England wildlife and could survive on acorns and wild berries if I needed to (never did, thank goodness).  Now, I live in FL, and as an adult, I’ll die out there if left alone for too long.  I know the basics of what to stay away from, like gators and black widows, but I can’t tell a Coral Snake from a Scarlet Kingsnake, and God help me when it comes to distinguishing which plant life is edible.  I simply don’t have the affinity for Floridian ecology that I do for the forests of New England.  So, I stay in the densely-populated city of Orlando, where you’ll be hard-pressed to find an abandoned road or plot of land.  Even then, emergencies happen.  This is a traffic-congested metropolis, and someone, somewhere, will be run off the road and into a ditch or retention pond.

There was a rash of those incidents a few years back, prompting me to finally put together a vehicle survival kit.  It’s really basic, but I’m always on the lookout for stuff to add. Continue reading
