Stranded in Your Car This Winter? Here’s How to Survive… | USCCA

You’re on your way home from stuffing yourself at the in-laws’ house. The kids are dozing off in the back seat. Although you departed much later than planned, you’re still hoping to beat a winter storm projected to strike that evening. No such luck. It appears the snow got an early start, and you find yourself driving through a blizzard. Suddenly, you hit a patch of black ice, and your car uncontrollably veers off the road and into a snow-packed ditch.

In addition to the list in the article,
A good strong full tang knife, for batoning, 550 cord, fire starter or matches, or some other means of starting a fire, perhaps some tinder (lint in a sealed baggy might work, cotton balls rolled with petroleum jelly will work)…
Tarp or trashbag…

All to make a shelter and fire, and if it is snowing, a metal cup to melt snow to drink.

And yes, wool blanket, wool socks, wool is always a good choice…
