You can patch a lot of things with JBweld and duct tape.

Good suggestion. I agree that JB Weld is amazing at patching up stuff.

Are hose clamps on here somewhere? I was stranded by a lost hose clamp!

Did you hear about the guy who was hooked on brake fluid?
He swears he can stop any time.

Hose clamps aren't a bad idea. I'd also recommend changing out all the chintzy snail/spring clamps for quality T-clamps. I like the idea of keeping J-B Weld in there too, I might add some to my kit.

My recovery gear bag includes:
Tool kit
Tire repair kit & extra valve stems, 2x tire gauges, extra tire wrench & extra wheel lock key (for a total of 2 each)
Portable compressor / jump starter
Jumper cables
2x flashlights & extra batteries
Leatherman multi-tool
Duct & electrical tape
Tow strap
Small tarp
Folding shovel
Folding solar cell
Zip ties
2x lighters

I have a separate first aid kit that I always have which includes:
Disposable gloves
Band-aids, sterile bandages & wraps
Allergy meds, pain killers, burn gel, ointments, etc.
Eye drops
Cotton balls
Sunscreen & insect repellent
Snake bite kit
Quik Clot
2x protein bars
6x emergency water bags
Wool blanket
Emergency reflective blanket
SAM splint
Moist towelettes
Garbage bags

I always carry a pistol and an extra magazine with me, plus chargers for both cell phones and a portable inverter.

My .02 worth:

A bag of Doritos (any flavor you like) will serve as a food source and a fuel source for starting a fire. The oils in the chips work great as kindling and taste good too.

I know this is old, but would just like to REALLY second the bag of chips for fire starting....

Corn chips, Doritos, Sun chips, Frito, etc ALL worked AMAZING for starting fires. Quite surprising how effective they are actually... And they taste good, but are probably better health wise for just starting fires... >.>

cell phone?

I don't think you will put your phone into the bag/container in the back of the vehicle.

I think your cell phone is like taking your wallet and keys with you in this day and age.

Today's smartphones are kinda delicate, battery life is not that great. I keep a cheap, unactivated pay-as-you-go flip phone in all my rigs. $15 Walmart LG flip has 7-9 days of stand-by time, try that with an iPhone or Galaxy. Don't need to activate them, 911 calls can be made without activation or paying anything. I'm so cheap, I didn't even pay the $15, I got a box of them for $1 at Goodwill along with cords. Unlike a smartphone, if the screen breaks, no big deal, that's what the keypad is for and if I drop it in a puddle, the battery comes out in seconds, plus you can use the battery with a wad of steel wool as a fire starter.
