Everyone should be prepared and keep a 72 hour emergency kit in their vehicle preps for survival, no excuses.
Having a 72 hour kit in your car is definitely a strong recommendation for those living in Earthquake country, who could find themselves stranded during a major earthquake, or maybe not able to make it back home due to infrastructure damage. One could think of many scenarios whereby having a 72 hour supply of food and water in the car could be a lifesaver, or a great convenience if nothing else.
Most of the day, people are at â€˜workâ€™, having used their vehicles as transportation to get there. If while at work there was some sort of regional or local disaster, you could potentially become stranded, or even if you manage to get out and on the road, having a three day supply of food and water will assure your survival. Most emergencies are relatively short in duration based on the odds of a given occurrence, and three days of supplies should be enough insurance to get you to a destination, be it home, or a pre-determined bug out location.
There are lots of different opinions regarding what to keep in your kit, and in my opinion, so long as you have put something together, it is better than nothing at all! Once you have a basic kit put together, it is fun to tweak and adjust it as you read and learn more about what others are doing.
The basic idea here is to keep enough food, water, and basic supplies. --- continued at link, above ---
