    ...what would you put in it? It is a pelican water proof, dual latched box with an interrior demension of (approx) 14.75"x10.5"x4.5". I am planning on using it as an extended roadside emergency box. I have an idea of what I want to put in there but am humble enough to know I don't know everything. So, what are your thoughts?

    Activated TracFone with minutes card to turn on and phone numbers
    Couple road flares (the good Orion ones) good for fire or for flagging; the 15's should fit
    Leatherman/swiss army/whatever your flavor
    ID info (no stealable info, SSN, etc) in case the unfortunate happens and they (EMS, etc) needs to ID you or you're unconscious, allergy info, emergency contact etc would be good, all on like a laminated index card.
    Whatever doesn't fit in your First Aid Kit
    And, if you got room and you Carry, couple magazines/box of ammo <-(if you use a revolver)
    And if you can cram 'em in, a water ration and some powerbars.

    MREs
    Water
    Firearm
    Ammo
    Matches/flint/lighter
    fixed blade

    Keep it simple. I would make several of these identical boxes in likely directions that I would bug out. Also making a detailed map of its exact location printed on waterproof paper and include it in my bug out bag.

    diapers (vaccum packed)
    wipes
    bug spray
    sun screen
    granola bars
    dry matches
    backpack
    glock 22 & ammo (I already have the 19 in my purse)
    first aid big wound stuff (already have basic first aid kit in vehicle)
    compass & area map
    cash
    asthma meds for kids
    small bottle of whiskey for me..

    I'm always worried at the SHTF stuff will happen when I'm down on an errand run...and the nearest town to shop is 60 miles away... So, if an EMP attack happens and I'm in a vehicle 60 miles from home with 3 boys age 8 and under....this is what I'd want....for the long hike home.

    PS - I'm not an alcoholic...and don't drink in general...but if I was hiking home with 3 kids, I'd defnitely need the whiskey before I got home. :)
