A little bit of normal and 'prepping' supplies carried every day, this is my light travel version which can be topped up with the 4 large household shelter in place boxes (including 3 months freeze dried food for 3 people plus water purification and preparation equipment) if evacuation is required.

Fire extinguisher
Fridge full of water bottles (approx 10L)
First aid kit
Air compressor
Folding shovel
Biological decontamination kit
Ice scrapers
Torch
Ice cleats
Some random tools
battery cables
Deicer
Boots/spare clothes/random coats
Baby wipes
Plastic fuel container

Bug out bag containing:
Emergency water purification (tablets and lifestraws)
Survival kits (2)
First aid kits (2)
Emergency foil blankets (3)
Survival bags/shelters (2)
Hi-viz jacket
Folding mini shovel/axe
Chemical lightsticks
Torches (rechargeable and wind-up)
Fire dragon cooking kit/fuel/cooking pan
Folding cups
1 litre water carriers
Emergency water pouches (3 day supply)
Emergency food rations/bars (3 day supply)
Sharp thing plus backup Sharp things
Boker+ firesteel plus backup
50m paracord
Firecord (paracord containing both emergency fishing wire and treated fire tinder strands)
Utility string
Gorilla tape
Survival Fishing kit
Waterproof ponchos
FFP3 half mask respirator plus spare filters

And probably stuff I have forgotten...

I like to be prepared.

Most important thing (esp. when an Elgrand is your primary bug out vehicle!) I never ever let my fuel tank go below half full. Even if it means topping up 3 times a week (and in normal times it does!!)

Nice stash Tim.
Few things you have forgotten though.
Knives, machete, crossbow and the guns.
Just one question, who is the 3rd person coming with us?
