Common Sense Alaska Winter Emergency Car Kit

Winter driving in Alaska can be especially challenging and potentially deadly for those who aren't prepared for a breakdown or accident.  In Alaska, often we have to serve to avoid a moose and could have easily run off the road.  Unless someone notices the tracks running off the road, we could be stranded in or out of a car for hours or days. We must be prepared to deal with the situation on our own without reliance on outside help that may never arrive.
