Ultimate Survival Kit in a Water Bottle

Ultimate Survival Kit in a Water Bottle

As I was climbing in the back door of my car this morning so that I could get into the front seat and kick open the frozen front door, I started thinking about what might be good to keep in the glove compartment now that the cold weather has hit the Midwest. A flask of whiskey is the obvious choice. More practically speaking, this kit might be handy in a roadside emergency situation... from the site: According to the folks who build those awesome rovers that drive around on Mars, water is a pretty essential element for the existence of life. Liquid water is an especially important form necessary to support life, and fortunately for us, we have plenty of that here on Earth. Most other places in our solar system the water is all locked up as ice. The Ultimate Survival Kit in a Water Bottle doesn't contain any liquid water (but of course you can easily add your own) but that doesn't mean it cannot help support life. What is does contain could help with your survival while you roam around the surface of our planet in search of outdoor adventures. Comes packaged as a 32 oz (1 liter) water bottle containing the following supplies. * 32 oz/1L water bottle * Carabiner * Multifunction tool * Multifunction whistle/compass * Flashlight * Batteries (2 pcs) * Survival blanket * Hand warmer packet (2 pcs) * Candle * Box waterproof matches * Emergency poncho * 20pc First aid kit * Reusable zipper-lock bag

Ta da. And yes, it's available in SEVERAL colors. Also several hard drive sizes. An I want to add a quick note from one of the reviewer's that you may find helpful: "You've probably read that it's important with Windows XP to format your USB hard drive using the NTFS file system and then set it in device manager's "Policies" tab to "optimize for performance". That's quite true and worth mentioning. You'll get best speed this way and really don't lose anything except compatibility with Windows 95, 98 and ME.

Now that temps are silly stupid cold and the roads are often coated with ice and snow, tire pressure has become a pretty big deal to me. Yes, I know I need a life. I believe I've covered that in other recs. Anyway, the other day as I was at the local station's air machine freezing my fingers off because I'd forgotten my gloves, I realized I'd forgotten to buy a new tire gauge for use in my warm garage. Then I went home and promptly forgot. Again. Today a friend asked me to do a quick online search while he was at the mall for one and I came across THESE BEAUTIES! Who needs a gauge? Just cast a glance at your wheels and you'll see either a red or green ring depending upon whether or not your tires are at the correct pressure. Lovely stuff! Available in different psi's. A few different stores have them for the difference of a few bucks. And since proper tire pressure really does save you money at the pump, this is a great resolution to put on the New Year's list!
