    Like the Jeep Wave, recovery of vehicles in distress is a noble gesture

    Water is a good one. Our list is similar despite lack of snow

    I came across some one a year or so ago stuck in the snow. Cause I didn't have a tow strap. I had to leave him. I felt really bad. I bought a cheap strap the next day. Since upgraded to the RR strap. I would have at least a strap, First Aid kit, flashlight, and a shovel. The rest are really optional depending on where you wheel, drive, and normal weather conditions. Some off-road parks and such require most of what has been posted. If you don't off-road. You really don't need all of it. But, you never know. I recently applied for a beach permit here. And they require most of that, and then some not mentioned here.

    Forgot to add First Aid Kit. I keep a pretty well stocked bag under my passenger seat. FWIW, Local Fire Departments in the Metro Phoenix area will inspect and replace expired contents for no charge

    Im from deep south where the every 10 year snow fall is a light dusting, so im not much of an expert when it comes to prepping for blizzards, but dont you want to have a couple of thick blankets just in case you get stranded?
