Part 2
All bags went in the trunk. I discovered that putting everything in one bag was to much, the bag was real large and hard to move around and take in and out when I had to take the autos in for repairs. And two smaller bags are easier to move around when you have to make room to carry shopping items. I had to think about my wife, she would not be able to handle one large bag without a lot of muscle. Finally, two large gym type bags and a medium size gym bag for the first aid
kits in one auto.

At this point in time we saw the need to be ready to leave the area where we live, being prepared and leaving in a hurry might be something we wanted to stay on top of, due to the times we are living in. So, we made the second auto first aid
kit ready to handle most anything we could do like sew up a wound if we had to or whatever. We made all three bags the large gym bags for that auto. We decided that if we both were at home when such a time came we would try to drive out in
both autos if possible, if not we would place all bags in the auto we plan to drive out and try to go with that. We have a standing rule to keep the gas tanks filled as much as possible not to let them drop below half a tank at first but we both decided over a year ago to refill at three quarters tank now.

Due to the world and the country ready to go over the edge we even made us up a house BOB. Who know, with all the "spread the wealth around" out there we may have to leave the house on foot in a hurry!

Part 1 of 2 parts
I live is subjected to many earth quakes. I have a three day winter survival car kit. I have two autos and a kit in each including fully first aid kits.

When a bad quake has hit the freeways have been shut down for days to weeks.
Should I be away or can't get home I'm set for three days for sure. I have everything mention on here. I don't pack firearms because I've had to many autos stolen here you could loose all you own and go to jail for unsecured firearms.

But, I searched the Internet for some 13 to 15 inch long rifle bayonets, two each in each auto. Along with shovels to double as a weapon and for digging when needed. I first bought Glock service knives but when I received them I realized
I want more than just stabling holes for a bleed-out should I be attacked. I wanted to put it completely though and all the way up the middle from the lungs to the brains if I get the chance. Or use it like a sword.

Shovels will be hard to swing inside an auto but the shovels will due when traveling and the bayonets have sheaths and can be pack under clothing when on the move.

At first when I set up each auto with a kit for one person for three days. After going over many different scenarios I pulled the kits and re-did them tow handle two people just encase we were out are away together.

This was not a cheap thing to do. I started small and worked up the kits over a year. I ask around to many people if they had a car kit, some told me they had jumper cables or a extra flash light. No help there, so I went on the Internet not knowing what to expect. I searched on survival kits and bam found the first "Bug Our Bags".

Wow, was I surprised at the number of people who posted on Youtube their BOB's. What a big help. Believe me, I found thousands of people thinking just like myself on Youtube. And thats all I needed to see what others have done to get me
started. I put the most important items in large trash bags to start with such as water and food and worked up from there. I had no idea what type of bag or box I would end up with because it looked like I was going to need a lot of gear. So I kept adding and packing in the trash bags which worked out great until I saw what was need to hold everything.

Add these

Well thought out kit. Just make sure your batteries are lithium and your winter gloves are waterproof.
Add a poncho in case of freezing rain. You may also want to add a road flare or two.

Thanks for all the good information. I hope I or my family never have to use these things but it's good to know that I could survive. I am making a kit for everyone in my family for Christmas. My Son loves to ski and takes many ski trips. So thank you for all the good information.
