Today's Car Care Tip: Packing A Travel Safety Kit for the Car

My friend Terry Keller (owner of Keller Bros. Auto) recently came up with a list for travel safety for his car. So did his wife, and I think they're both pretty good in their own ways. Put them together, and you've got a pretty complete list for just about any car trip you can take!

Terry's List
  • First Aid Kit
  • Blanket
  • Some tools
  • A flare
  • Flashlight
  • Jumper cables
  • And a cell phone
Terry's Wife's List
  • Snacks
  • Wet wipes
  • Kleenex
  • Drinks
  • Art supplies
  • Game Boy
  • and a TV and movies
No matter what you bring, I recommend using Google Maps to plan your trip!
