Recently, I have been cleaning out my car of all the dog hair and sand and I noticed all the little things I have squirreled away. It's been a gradual process of stashing things and I thought I'd share some of my car's contents. Things I need to have traveling around in Costa Rica. Some things are mandatory and others are just for comfort or necessity. I'm sure if you have children, your list is much longer. I didn't include the doggy stuff I keep in the car. I'd be interested what others might add to my list of items.
Here it is:
Car I.D. (papers) and two triangle road reflectors (must have), jumper cables, fire extinguisher, towels, coolie cups, machete, fillet knife (inside driver door), crow bar, rubber boots (for walking), cut garden hose (syphon gas - gas stations are few and far between), compass, maps, roll of toilet paper, lucky charm (in photo), bug spray, kite (you just never know), good spare tire and jack, fluids (brake, oil, battery water, whatever you car drinks), jug of water, coins for tipping security guys, back-up reading glasses (for maps, phones, etc.), phone card (pay phones don't take coins), umbrella, hooded plastic rain coat, spare key to car door (magnetic holder, no AAA here), bottle opener and travel corkscrew, first aid kit (not to self, get one), and flashlight.
I'm sure I left out stuff but you get the idea. Being prepared is the key here.
