Scenario – Stranded, how do you use your vehicle to survive?
Here’s a hypothetical disaster scenario that we can think about and bounce ideas off of each other on what to do and not to do.
While driving on a road trip with your spouse and dog, your car gets stranded. Lets say you wreck and damage the car badly that it no longer runs. Battery is still charged and the electrical system of your car still works but the engine just won’t start from too much damage.
You have no cell service, are on a back road, and are not expecting anyone to drive by for the next few days. You are at least 30 miles away from where you can reliably find another driver.
Luckily you told your family at home your route and estimated time of arrival so they will be sending out a search party to find you soon, but who knows how long that can take?
You have two granola bars and a small Dasani bottle of water. You smack yourself on the head for not being better prepared, but too late now.
What do you do to maximize the amount of time you can survive? How do you use the various components of your vehicle to aid in your survival, and rescue? Do you eat the dog? (just kidding, that’s not allowed)
Best of luck! I hope you survive this situation and are rescued.
