Now you have guessed I am nuts about stashing or caching things for a rainy day !! I am now preparing a drop-and-forget kind of stash in my car trunk. There are several objectives here. One is to have some basics to supplement any BOB or kit I am having in the car, second, it is a test for other stashes I may drop and forget elsewhere. The kit will be in the car trunk in Category 5 summer heat half of the year. ( We only have summer, and something like spring ... LOL ) . This is NOT a BOB or survival kit. It is a box or bag to stay in the car just like the tool box. You hope you never need it, and like the tools in the tool box , they shopuld have endless shelf life. No food or water, no nothing with expiry date. Remember that beside this kit there is the usual car toolbox. Also, when I am going anywhere outside my daily routine, I will throw in the trunk an emergency pack (GHB). So, the kit I am building as a stash or cache is something like a support to the real emergency pack. And if I am caught without any emergency pack , I want to be able to tackle many situations. My list have already started and items are listed with no order or category: * Spoon / fork / knife * Small Bottle of detergent * Small bar of soap (from hotel) * Tissue packets * Paper towel * small towel * Cheap sewing kit * Scissors * Cheap safety googles * N95 face masks * Garbage bags, ziplok bags * First aid items (Guaze and cotton balls) * Work gloves * Latex gloves OK, latex gloves may deteriorate in time, but if they fall apart I will toss them away. They are not like rotten food which will poision me. So, can you help me add more items ? The kit is NOT an emergency kit perse. It is a kit to help fall back to in any awkward situation, be it emergency or just an inconvenience. ** You notice I havent included a tool ( or multiutool ) because the tool box is there. ** Also , no fire starters because it gets real hot and I dont want a butane lighter or matches in my car trunk near paper towels and near the gas tank. Besides, in the last decade I havent met one situation when I needed to make fire. Oooops. Only once. We were in a gathering of several families in a suite type lodging and after leaving, the Mrs told me she and other ladies wished to use the kitchen range but didnt have a lighter !! &^%$^%#$^ Never mind. ** No food in the trunk, bacause it will spoil in the heat, and because I am in an urban area. If SHTF, I will stop immediately and grab a few water bottles. Usually there are always one or two bottles on the driver seat or back seat. Can you help make such a "trunk cache" taking these considerations into account ?? Many thanks.
