That way you won’t be stuck gnawing on a four year old protein bar when you eventually have to bust into your emergency kit. Have a sleeping bagwinter weight!in the truck, along with winter boots and additional winter clothing. The clothes don’t need to be fancythey just need to keep you warm, so throw in some older winter gear that doesn’t see much use. Don’t overlook hats, scarves, and gloves here, they help keep heat in at high loss points like the neck and head. Photo by Muffet . Be Able to Signal You know what a light colored car, in a ditch, in a snow storm looks like? Nothing. You don’t want to be looked over by other motorists and rescue workers as you sit in your car freezing. You need a way to signal. Plan on your car’s electrical system being out of commission and have an LED emergency beacon or two in your car. They aren’t particularly expensive, you can pick them up at backpacking and outdoor stores and they even have ones designed for automotive emergency use at many auto supply stores.

Take a look at some of the survival kits above, and read on to hear from their creators about home remedies for surviving the flu. Eric Madsen says he refuses to get sick. As the wave of coughing and sniffling started peaking in New Jersey, he started loading up his system with water, tea and vitamin packs such as Emergen-C, which claim to boost immune systems through Vitamin C and other ingredients. The 32-year-old says the keys to staving off the flu for him were these supplements, hydration and “hot sauce on every meal.” CDC director takes your flu questions Flu epidemic: What you need to know Flu fear goes to Hollywood Middle school teacher Amanda Hanson of Las Vegas wasn’t so lucky. She caught the flu a week ago, running a fever of 102 degrees. She says she is feeling better now thanks to her survival kit, which is made up of medications, water, blankets and Netflix — “a must.” Hanson also credits her Neti Pot with helping her recover. “(It’s) a life saver. … I use my Neti Pot for everything,” she said. Jaclyn Kunz , 28, says this season’s flu made her the sickest she’s ever been. The East Rockaway, New York, librarian says she did not get a flu shot this year “because I never have before, and I didn’t think it was necessary.” Besides cold and flu medication, “lots of rest and bad TV” was her prescription for survival. Of course, not everyone who got a flu shot went unscathed, as the vaccine protects only against certain strains.
