This is a practical and pretty thorough article, and I agree with it. It covers the priorities and does not include unnecessary stuff.

Y'all are welcome: I've learned so much from your many more frequent posts.

The same folks have done a similar list of recommendations for hunkering down:
https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/emergency-preparedness/

and for keeping mind, body, and soul together in your vehicle:
https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-gear-for-a-roadside-emergency/

The comments by readers are informative as well. . .

I do not like the Instafire they recommend. I have tried it and it is difficult to ignite and does not burn well. There are much better options out there.

While my experience concurs with many of their recommendations, I was surprised to see them recommending any alkaline battery. The only disposable batteries I keep around these days are lithiums; otherwise everything in AA or AAA is a NiMH, mostly Eneloops.

My thinking is away from wilderness survival and more toward shelter in place/ local shelter/ hotel. Less call for a 24" machete and more for a phone charger.

Always the optimist... If I canít drive home, I will not be looking at Uber as a Plan B.
