Good kit Dawn, but I would add some extra batteries and dry gloves and socks.

I have a similar kit, but because I venture away from the jeep. I carry a roll of flagging tape and a sharpie. I also have roll of gorilla tape a poncho and a space blanket. I also carry a significant amount of paracord.

I have a whisper light dual fuel stove, so I can burn fuel from the jeep and I have a small pot.

I am glad you put hand sanitizer on the list ... it has many uses not just for its intended purpose. You can use it as fire starter (same exact thing chemically as pellet stove lighter gel) It can also be used in an alcohol stove (if you don't have one you can make one with a couple aluminum soda cans)

Awesome skill to know!

Try it at home before you have to do it in the field!

Canine? I never forget him. Or his food, water, and warm doggie clothes...

It's that time of year again.
Do not forget to stock the Jeep with extra winter emergency gear.
Picked up a backpack at Wall-mart today for $5.00. Going to start putting together a 2nd bag to keep in our truck.

Some Items to have on hand.
Good book - beats watching the clock while you wait for help
Survival bag  - First aid
quick clot bandage
tourniquet
sharpie - to write times on tourniquet
head lamp /flash light
Knife
paracord
metal cup
canine
water purification
Solo stove
kindling in zip lock for fuel
Dry soups
dry fruit
candy
extra socks
extra hat, mittens, coat
Hand and foot warmers
sleeping bag
baby whips
purell/hand sanitizer
More than 1 way to start fire -  lighter, matches   
Magnesium Fire Starter, lint from dryer & homemade fire starters
paper & pencils - Pencil sharpener can also be used to make fire starter.

Don't outsmart your common sense.
