    Winter Supplies

    Winter is closing in and I was wondering what most people keep supplied in their cars for the bad winter weather.
    Now I know most of you might say Well you have a Subaru and Winter tires what more do you need.???

    Im looking for items to help your fellow motorist that may not have a Subrau.

    Forget some of the things you might find in a road safety kit
    jumper cables
    an extra pair of gloves
    road flares/signal blinkers
    Mylar Thermal (silver foil) blanket
    flash light

    Im looking for more unique things:
    Folding shovel/Entrenching tool (also good against zombies)
    tow straps???
    kitty litter

    Keep a 24 hour emergency kit in there: matches, first aid, some protein bars and some water. Definitely an ice scraper, some gravel or kitty litter would be good, and yes a small shovel.

    Re: Winter Supplies

    I got a Subaru extreme weather kit with the Forester (thanks to one of our vendors). It comes with a small shovel among other things. Otherwise in the WRX I always have a small shovel . Flares ,water , a lighter,a multi tool knife,& warm gloves are always present in both cars.

    Basically all of that ^

    Depending on how bad snow is, sometimes I'll put my tow hook on the front before I go, God forbid I need it.

    haha kinda, you never know...

    keeping it in there saves time if you decide to help someone who's stuck, or need to get out of something yourself.

    I keep whatever assorted garbage is in my back seats from the previous summer/fall seasons. Usually water bottles, some candy/cookie wrappers, straws, lids and cups from fountain sodas, etc.

    My trunk usually has: rope, a toolkit, an axe, extra blankets and towels, protein bars, a gallon of water, a spare change of cold weather clothes and a survival guide I've read but like to keep handy just in case.

    as well as an assortment of sports and hiking gear, and an inflatable raft with an oar.

    If/when it snows I have a little go bag with a couple tow straps,com-a-long and a Gerber folding shovel. I generally keep a mechanics bag in the trunk all the time with an assortment of tools,first aid kit and a tire patch kit with a mini air compressor. Also have several L.E.D. flashlights handy.
