You never know what will happen to you on the road, and as the saying goes, it’s better to be prepared than sorry.

My medical kit has seen a lot of wear and tear over the years, and I’m constantly rotating supplies to keep them up to date.

And it doesn’t have to be an accident. Maybe you drove off the road into a snow bank in the middle of nowhere, or your engine conked out in the middle of Death Valley. Do you have the supplies to enable you to survive the situation?

A little planning and a few inexpensive supplies can mean the difference between making it back home fairly comfortably or a lot of heartburn.

Don’t leave home without it.
