We got stuck (in a hotel, thankfully!) due to a blizzard while driving home from our Spring Break trip. This got me thinking about how unprepared we were. D&C 38:30 counsels ..."if ye are prepared ye shall not fear."

Here are some great ideas to help you survive emergencies which may arise on the road.

  • Bring tools and know how to use them. Jumper cables, a tire iron, a wrench, a jerk chain, a waterproof rope etc...

  • Store blankets and weather appropriate gear in your vehicle

  • Bring along a good first aid kit

  • Pack several flashlights and extra batteries

  • Stock a 72 hour kit for your car. Include food, water and other essentials (A good list of items for your 72 hour kit can be found at this link)

  • Bring an inverter for electrical items

  • Bring a candle and waterproof matches. Can be used for heat and light

  • Don't forget toilet paper and a container for disposal of emergency wastes

  • Your good planning may be a blessing to others along your way!

    What do you bring when you travel?
