    Winter driving tips, not about actual driving

    Hi everyone, I don't know if this is on here or not but here goes it.

    I am in PA near Pittsburgh, we just got our first big snow of the season. So as I do a lot I was thinking of how I would react in certain situations, now they involve snow.

    My tips for driving in bad weather.

    Make sure your cell phone is on your body somewhere easily accessible so it doesn't fly if you wreck

    Carry a blade or strap cutter on you in your centerline if possible if you wear a seat belt you have a chance to cut yourself out of it.

    Clear all the snow/ice off of windows and flat planes of vehicle.

    Keep your firearm on your body or in a locked/shut area so like your phone it doesn't fly around, if your window breaks in a wreck and your gun pops out its a bad day

    Keep all cups and bottles away from the fall under the pedal area.

    Keep a blanket in the car somewhere. if you get stranded, you have some warmth. MREs are nice too.

    Keep a glass breaker,light, food, (water if it would't freeze), lighter, fire material(warmth/signaling), flares,traffic vest, extra warm clothes, wet weather gear in your buggy.In case, god forbid, you slide over a hill or get stranded in broke down ride.

    These are some that I have thought of, if anyone has some more please add. Thanks!

    Never leave your dip spit bottle on the passenger floorboard in summer. Even if it's capped tight, hot weather + fermentation = bad.

    For winter:

    It's darker longer. Drive with your lights on!!!!

    Good advice, when I was stationed in California it was no uncommon to hear of people who died after being stranded without even simplest survival gear. A couple of things I would add are a couple of those big fat plumbers candles and a bag of the cheap clay kitty litter, helps get traction on snow or ice.
    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    Never let your fuel tank get below half.
    If you do get stuck, stay with your vehicle.
