Winter Road Trip Kit

Are you travelling on a road trip outside Temple or Waco for the holidays? This means you’ll be going off into a variety of different road conditions and weather conditions. The last thing you want is to get stranded in a strange land, so we recommend additional tools on your winter emergency kit:

  • Food and water: Should you get stranded, you want to have dry goods in addition to a few bottles of water stored in your vehicle.
  • Tow strap: The proper tow strap — recommended by your owner’s manual — can save a lot of hassle. Don’t get stuck in a ditch without the right tools!
  • Car fire extinguisher: A special car fire extinguisher may come in handy in dire emergencies.
