I just happened to find a good deal on www.woot.com for some essential survival gear.
I had these items on my emergency essentials list but was planning on having to get them from a surplus store. It was nice to find them on line and easily available. In the kit was an entrenching tool, hand axe and tree saw.
Car Winter Survival Kits
Update: 7/12/11 – based on a story from a friend recently about an accident they had during last Winter, I’ve decided to amend my plan for building a single comprehensive survival kit to include also buy a car winter survival kit for each of my vehicles. Now, I live in Texas and while you might think we don’t get some tough winters, they are tough for us and car winter survival kits can be useful at any time.
