    Re-outfitting my Truck's EDC... what should I add?

    Hey dudes,

    I have always tried to have a few pieces of gear in a 3day bag underneath the back seat of my truck. I would keep some basics, like a first aid kit, tow straps, gloves, duct tape, electric air pump, jack yada yada.

    Recently I got a hard, tri-fold, town-in cover and it made me realize I can store way more in my bed without worry of theft. Right now I am thinking of going to a surplus store and picking up an A bag that I can strap down to a tie down point. What kinda items do you carry in your car, OR what would you put in your own hypothetical A bag?

    My basic EOTW plan involves just sheltering in place, so think what kinda gear I might need to get home, not necessarily 'survive for weeks on end without resupply'.

    My basic kit is a “get home” bag since I, too, would be sheltering in place. That being said I keep a pack in my trunk with what I would need if I had to walk home. I have several bottles of water, Clif bars, first aid kit, lightweight bivvy, multitool, fixed blade knife and a lightweight rain jacket. In the winter I make sure I have gloves, toboggan and an extra jacket. On a normal day the furthest I would have to walk home is 25 miles so I really don’t need a ton of stuff to carry.

    One of the things I've thought about is something to siphon gas with and to store it in. It would have to be a small diameter hose to get past the anti siphoning valve on modern cars. Of course, it would have to be real bad if you needed to do this, but you never know these days. Plan on sheltering in place, but what if you had to leave that place and go somewhere else further away?
