Picked up 3 pack, with bag, of led emergency flashers from Costco, to add to my pop-up traffic cones and triangles.

Spark plugs, hose clamps, visqueen (or similar for crawling/kneeling in incremental weather), bicycle inner tube (can act as a temp belt, cracked hose repair, bungee, seal, etc), small spool of wire (act as tie in high temperature areas among other uses), can of ether, fuel filter, lighter/matches/fire starter, beer (obviously).

There's one I never thought of!!!! The spool of wire...imagine can see breaking a hanger in the exhaust system. I have plenty of spools of SS safety wire.

Someone mentioned about road side assistance. I'd rather fix something myself right away than wait for help and then get "bent over" by the fees.

A spool of wire is a great idea.

In the late 90's, after my Mom died, Dad gave me his old Ford F-150. He lived in Maine and I was stationed in San Antonio, Texas. So I flew home and drove it back.

Well, the salted winter roads in Maine had really done a number underneath the truck...rust everywhere. When I was in Arkansas, the long exhaust pipe (before it got to the muffler) decided to split apart. I was in the middle of nowhere so just removed the muffler and half of the pipe and found some wire coat hangers to hold up the stupid pipe. (Yes, the truck was very loud all the way home!)
