Don't use windex on the inside of glass, the ammonia can soften some of the window tinting and will make a big mess. I ruined a window once with it, never could get it to not be cloudy afterward.

That is interesting Eugene. I have never had a problem with it, but our windshields are probably not tinted like that. (It is against the law here to darken your windshield and factory tinting is sealed in the plastic layer in the middle of the glass.)

What cleaners would you recommend for cleaning the crud of the inside of a windshield instead? Just vinegar and water or have you got a better solution?

Aparently sometimes the factory tinting isn't in between the glass, its sprayed on, this was a chrysler minivan from the 90's when they were using a lot of mitsubishi parts.
Ammonia is considered a pretty bad chemical, I wouldn't want to use in inside a car anyway where my nose is inches from the window. They make automotive glass cleaner and we use some of the method stuff as well since its a non toxic cleaner.

I keep my truck's spare key in my EDC Mission Wallet. It's always in my front left pocket.

I believe you will be crossing long stretches of desert. If so, water gets very high on my list. I believe one person has already mentioned this. Desert heat can be way over 100 degrees.

I don't live in the desert,but today at my house it was 108, (most of S. Calif is desert with a lot of water added) but yes we will have lots of cold water in the car and I will only be in the desert for 3/4 of 1 day. Then its mountians and a lot of flat lands.
