My VEDC is pretty complete now.

1. 72-hour bug-out-bag

2. CCW stays in locked console

3. Leather gloves

4. Homemade tire-knocker, which my brother helped me fill with lead. When I broke down earlier this spring, I needed something like this but didn’t have it.

5. Basic toolkit, with tow straps, air compressor, and everything needed to change or repair two flat tires.

I like this because it’s a nice, tidy setup that still leaves lots of room. In the winter, I’ll add two bags of rock salt.
