Assemble a 10-day emergency food supply by shopping only in a typical chain grocery store, for under 25.00. Cheap insurance if you travel through areas where you would not want to be stranded. Items are ready to eat or cooked by adding hot water. Sterno fuel and a metal cup or small pot for heating.
coffee can car emergency kit. my mom made me one a long time ago. it's in my trunk and has matches, candle (to put inside the can and burn if stranded), meal replacement bars, and other items. She put a neon orange ski cap over the top of the can ;)
