I travel usually every week and I'm gone for 3 or 4 nights every time as far as 5 hours away. I am just looking for some ideas on gear I should be bringing for the just in case situations. I always have a high cap 9mm with two extra mags of hp rounds, a box of 50 fmj, a good knife, a good flash light and an Otis cleaning kit. What else should I be bringing. A lot of my normal survival gear was recently put in a bag for the wife in case something happens while I'm gone.
Sounds like good gear to me
I like to keep basic survival gear in the ride , just in case I get stranded . Emergency blanket , knife, a few MRE meals , ect.

Water. And I'd ditch the cleaning kit. IMHO, a little Visine-type bottle with your favorite lube is more than sufficient for travel. Replace the weight savings with a good multi-tool (Leatherman, Gerber, SOG, etc.).

There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
Non sd ammo is better than running out of ammo. Weight is not a huge issue with the little cleaning kit plus I do visit random ranges and I just added a leatherman wave last night.
When you REALLY need batteries for the flashlight, others may buy out the supply before you can find some.
Consider adding a crank-flashlight; one minute of cranking gives about 5 minutes of very good light. They cost about $10-$12 at Walmart.
Also, if your budget will permit--get a Katadyn Hiker Pro water filter & some containers for the water.
Yes, do add a First Aid Kit, too.
Just make up another bag like the one you left for the wife.
Some kind of fire starter, besides matches. A flint set. A few pill bottles of dryer lint.
