Be nice to have a bot like that searching for ammo!
A few answers:
— Water: I carry a 2-gallon water jug, usually iced down before I leave the shop, and usually stocked with 5-6 cans of sparkling water drinks. I also have a LifeStraw at home (at this time!). Wouldn’t hurt to have an extra jug filled in the truck – Safety gives out 3-gallon jugs for the asking.
— Shelter: There are buildings and other types of shelters scattered throughout the range of my work area. Nothing like a populated area, though. The biggest concern is: will my vehicle be able to take me there? If I’m not sure of that, then my vehicle high and dry is a better shelter choice than my vehicle stuck in a wash-out somewhere! Our work trucks are mostly 2- or 4-wheel drive, but some are small trucks and not very powerful.
— Light: I carry a Streamlight PolyTac as art of my EDC. I also usually have one or two other lights as a normal part of my work gear – more if I’m working a night shift.
— Stashing: I can keep a bag o’ schtuff at the shop and just toss it into my work truck. But I’d rather have something that goes from home to work and back, given that I can drive some pretty isolated sections of road (even if it is a state highway) on my commute.
— Thanks for the SOL Emergency Blanket link. I think I need a few of these!! Also a nice rain poncho that will fit over a backpack (I saw one advertised – just gotta remember where).
Thank for the valuable input!!
