In the trunk: My toolbox full of tools, battery jumper box, 12v compressor, jumper cables, HID ballasts and bulbs, spare high beam bulbs, WD-40, and a bunch of other random things.

In my car: Tow strap, Armor All, Rain-X window cleaner, miscellaneous tools, spare LED bulbs from my gauges, and an extra hoodie and jacket.

I do a lot of highway driving, so I like to be as prepared as I can.

Both cars have fire extinguishers, and both have extra fluids, bulbs (including headlights), hoses, clamps, duct tape, flashlights, a 12v compressor, battery jumper box, tire plug kits, tools and cleaning/detailing stuff.

That phone is junk. They hardly work even in the most optimal conditions.

Well..since you don't dig the Sat phone...
This was the best phone I ever owned !!

Yes the brick phone...I think it was 3 watts of analog power, military specs, gold terminals thought it. With the 8" 12 DB antenna it could punch though the mountains or trees and would generally have a site.
I have often wondered today how it would work with all the cell sites now.
I think I paid about $3400 for it Back in around 1984? Ouch.

They still have those available, modified to be digital of course. I'm thinking about getting one.

Don't get me wrong though, I love sat-phones, just not THAT phone. Those are the kind I used in the Air Force, as a Satellite Comm Tech. If WE couldn't get them to work right, I feel sorry for an average civilian.
