24 Hour Emergency Backpack

Recommended Posts

Here in the UK, we don't often suffer from severe weather, but sometimes all it takes is a few inches of snow, and the whole of our little Island can grind to a halt. Towards the end of February 2018, we found ourselves in the midst of 'The Beast From The East' which brought us some late snowfall and caught a lot of people off guard...

 

I spent one night, from finishing work until the early hours of the next morning driving around in my 4x4 helping people who had got stuck on rural roads.  (The kind of roads where not much traffic passes anyway)  If I hadn't of drove there, there's a high chance that a lot of these people would have had to spend the night in their cars... Or maybe walked (a fair distance) for help or shelter.

 

I would say that a good 90% of the folk I helped were not equipped for the bad weather and certainly not equipped for a night away from home.

 

That inspired me to make this video.  :D

Good video. We all have different opinions on what is necessary. This is what I keep in the boot of my car, probably time for an update. I was thinking of updating my hiking rucksack and keeping that in the boot.

Thanks mate! ?

I was hoping to make a video simulating a situation using the bag and it's contents to get me home.  (I've just been short on time at the minute!)
