What are some things to keep in my car to make my car have the "art of manliness"?
Like, what should I have in my glove glove? Should I hang anything from the rear view? and any other car accessories should I have?
I have a drop kit in my car with the drop kit essentials. I'm debating whether or not to keep a change of clothes in a weekender bag in the trunk.
I have another duffel bag with: Fix-o-flat, air gauge, gloves, folding poncho, flashlight, paper map, umbrella, and duct tape.
How else could I upgrade what I already have?
Can't go worng with an "oh shit" bag. Bandages, Ace wrap (you'd be shocked how many things you can do with that stuff. Makes a handy emergency tie-down), a compass, a couple bottles of water, some type of non-perishable food item (Crunchy granola bars work great, and they don't take up much room. MRE's are great too, but for some reason i always eat the toilet paper by mistake), a multi-tool of some sort, and a flare (the real kind, not the electric flashlight kind. Makes a decent firestarter) As far as decorations go, i tend to subscribe to the theory that less is more. I don't have any identifying markers on my car except for my EMS license plates (Also great for getting out of speeding tickets. whoops... i didnt say that). Besides, a car like a mustang needs no enhancement. Happy trails, and keep the rubber side down!
I have a comprehensive first aid bag in my Jeep, as well as two blankets. When I go off road, I have my recovery kit with more gear. If we are expecting to be far off paved roads, I throw my 96 hour emergency bag on board and a Rossi 92 SRS (Winchester 92 clone) in a scabbard. My wife always complained that I carry too much gear, until one of our party suffered a broken axle, and we ended up on the trail overnight. We had a pop-up dome tent, blankets and enough food and drink to have a comfortable night. When off road, we bring a camp hatchet, several knifes, Dacron line, parachute cord and considerably more stuff. Years of wilderness hikes have shown me the wisdom that you can never have too much gear, as long as you can carry it all.
A basic first aid kit for one, a knife for another, tools for simple car repairs, emergency flares/lights, fire extinguisher.
Hang nothing from your mirror because it gets in the way of your view.
