whats in your truck (or car)... emergancy wise

Ok, since we just got dumped on for snow, and I "got" to help a few ppl (and make some $$) I'm wandering what everybodys got for emergancy equipment in their vehical...

Ive got:

spare tire
jack
jackstands
tire irons (pair of 4 ways)
jumpers
come along
chain
saftey triangle reflectors
blanket
pillow
tape (electrical and clear)
red menards flag (to stick on antenna in emergancy)
CB radio (dunno if it works though)
TRACK PHONE (got at ratshack, not walfart)
quarts o oil
$20 in the glove box


What I want to get:
flashlight
cheap box o tools (rachets sockets screwdrivers vicegrips...)
hose clamps
whinch
ROPE (less damage then chain)
old tire (less damage when pushing bumper to bumper)
water packets
flint/magniesium block (and kindeling)
medical stuff (hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alchol, GLOVES!!!, safety glasses, bandaids, splings, and ace bandages... ect ect)
sharo pocket knife
Gallon of saftey fuel? it wont burn if the engines cold, and its hard as hell on it even when its warm... but its non exposive vapors are good
small bag of dog food, for puppies... REASON BEING??? My grampa(who kicks serious ***) said it keeps for a long time, you will NOT eat it unless your hungry as hell, and its small enough for a traction aid


Anybody else? Its still winter, and if you get stuck in the sticks, youd better have what you need (else its gonna be a LONG night)

Am I wierd for not wanting to spend a day sleeping in my truck, waiting for help?

I only have a basic set of hand tools and jumper cables. Hope I never have a flat tire because the person I bought the truck from decided to keep the spare tire.

when i aint workin on it and my tool are all together in my ammo box, they are in my tool box, i got an axe in there, sometimes if i think i might need it ill throw a water bottle full of gas in the tool box, always have ether becuase my truck likes to kill batterys and run out of gas so the ether helps get it going with out killin the battery, got some flares but i doubt they will be used for what they are supposed to, if im headin out some where i really dont like i put my shotgun behind the seat, a come along, a tow strap with hooks, a tow cable, a small craftsman jack (i dont know why becuase i dont have a spare tire) i always have a knife on me and a leather man so im good on stuff like that.

Jumpers, spare tire, factory jack, 4-way lug wrench, coolant, spare (old) serpentine, oil, coolant, socket set, a few screwdrivers and wrenches, blanket, knife, some cash, and a CB radio. Snow shovel in the winter.

Not really for emergencies, but I usually have an extra oil filter in the same box in the back. I don't know why I keep it there instead of the garage, but I do.

Cell phone...all i really need.

Jumper cable, chain and belts. Usually have the carhart and a few gloves in the truck anyways

My jack and wrench is in the engine compartment. I have a spare tire, and tried to get it off the other night, but i couldnt . It has a center bolt that i cant figure out. instructions dont help.


A few of you guys seem like you drive a chevy, carrying all those repair tools

I've got a package of Top Ramen (I've eaten it dry before) and a deck of cards in my Toyota. I don't go on long trips in it often, but as my dad has taught me several times, it's always a long wait for a tow vehicle when you get stuck somewhere.
