So your vehicle’s well-maintained with a good heater, wipers, great winter tires, fresh coolant and the whole deal…but you still need to be prepared for the worst in an Anchorage, AK winter. Here’s some ideas for a well-stocked trouble bag for your car:
--Flashlight and batteries: that one’s self-explanatory.
--Blanket, gloves, sweater, cap: If you’re stranded, this can make the difference between life and death. Consider a metallic space blanket to save a little room.
--Charged-up cell phone: You can maybe just keep a cheap prepaid “burner phone” in the vehicle; they usually have a really long battery life compared to a smartphone. At least keep a charged-up power bank on hand.
