Dot org so folks a lot of a lot of things going on had a great interview with you guys last week on

00:00:35.520 –> 00:00:39.640
the show with Mike from tactical wood gas

00:00:39.640 –> 00:00:43.200
he is a really great guy and

00:00:43.200 –> 00:00:49.000
Lot of those a lot of a ham radio does a lot about radio itself knows a lot about

00:00:49.000 –> 00:00:55.000
All that stuff and it’s a really great. Maybe it’s about 47 minutes. I believe the show was 48 minutes

00:00:55.760 –> 00:01:00.660
Somewhere around there, but if you have a chance he talks about batteries and batteries are a big thing

00:01:00.660 –> 00:01:03.320
When it comes to what you’re going to do

00:01:03.320 –> 00:01:08.200
In the case of an emergency been of electric or anything like that not just saying you know

00:01:08.200 –> 00:01:11.960
If any MP hits the world, but in general what you’re going to need batteries for so

00:01:11.960 –> 00:01:16.760
Very great show catch up with that. That’s our last episode. That was really great. I

00:01:16.760 –> 00:01:22.000
Also want to give a shout out to our guys over at the the electronic media

00:01:23.000 –> 00:01:27.720
Collective podcast group their podcast network that we’re a part of as well. They’re really great group of guys

00:01:27.720 –> 00:01:30.820
They’ve been doing a lot to promote show so I appreciate all that

00:01:30.820 –> 00:01:34.040
So today folks what I want to talk about

00:01:34.040 –> 00:01:36.880
Is I want to talk about?

00:01:36.880 –> 00:01:40.580
Your your in staying in the car bag now. What is that?

00:01:40.580 –> 00:01:45.240
Well, it’s not an everyday carry bag. It’s not your bug-out bag. That’s not your seven-toner bag

00:01:45.240 –> 00:01:48.840
This is a different bag. This is just stuff. You’re going to keep in your car

00:01:48.840 –> 00:01:51.480
in case of a situation

00:01:51.920 –> 00:01:53.920
Where you get stuck on the side of the road

00:01:53.920 –> 00:01:56.920
Stuff that you’re going you should have in your car

00:01:56.920 –> 00:02:02.920
It’s not really so much a bag as what you should have in your car in case of an emergency. I’m going to go through

00:02:02.920 –> 00:02:07.380
That you know as always folks with any machine. I

00:02:07.380 –> 00:02:10.360
Strongly recommend that you keep up with your maintenance

00:02:10.360 –> 00:02:16.020
Keep up with you know your tires keep up oil changes and all that but this is stuff

00:02:16.020 –> 00:02:19.160
Everybody should have in their car now. We have a smaller car. I

00:02:19.800 –> 00:02:22.480
Understand that it’s tough to fit a lot of stuff in there, but most of them

00:02:22.480 –> 00:02:27.640
I’m gonna give you can fit in one crate one bucket in your trunk, okay?

00:02:27.640 –> 00:02:32.120
But like I said your vehicle, you know always make sure that you know you keep it up

00:02:32.120 –> 00:02:36.500
You know the best you can you know I know obviously car maintenance and all that’s very expensive

00:02:36.500 –> 00:02:40.460
You can do it yourself save a ton of money on labor because that’s a car industry

00:02:40.460 –> 00:02:44.980
That’s really what kills you is the markup on the part in the labor, but if you can fix your car yourself

00:02:44.980 –> 00:02:48.260
That’s wonderful, but for those of us. They can’t you know you got to do the best try to keep up

00:02:48.840 –> 00:02:53.520
You know your your vehicle the best you can obviously oil changes make sure you always keep up with

00:02:53.520 –> 00:02:58.720
You know make sure you have radiated fluid make sure your tire air pressure tires is good

00:02:58.720 –> 00:03:03.160
Keep an eye on those timing belt. You know tune up spark plugs all that kind of stuff

00:03:03.160 –> 00:03:06.120
You got to make sure you try to keep up with our machine the best we can

00:03:06.120 –> 00:03:12.240
But the first thing folks you should always have in your trunk is stuff to maintain the vehicle you should always have a

00:03:12.240 –> 00:03:16.280
Quarter oil in your car. You should always have some antifreeze in the in the car

00:03:17.120 –> 00:03:22.120
All that kind of stuff any fluids you would need wouldn’t you wash your fluid very important a lot of people don’t think of that one

00:03:22.120 –> 00:03:27.080
All that stuff is stuff. You should really consider keeping in the trunk of the car

00:03:27.080 –> 00:03:29.840
Well, I know people are gonna say to me well. I can get this stuff at a local gas station

00:03:29.840 –> 00:03:33.040
You’re right you can if there’s one available

00:03:33.040 –> 00:03:38.760
But the other thing is too if you do go to a local gas station to go ahead and get that stuff

00:03:38.760 –> 00:03:40.640
You’re going to be paying top price

00:03:40.640 –> 00:03:42.640
Go into you know

00:03:43.060 –> 00:03:48.380
Walk right now into Walmart and get a case oil and watch how much you pay and or walk into the local

00:03:48.380 –> 00:03:50.380
7-eleven or

00:03:50.380 –> 00:03:56.860
Wawa or whatever you have in your area and grab one quart of oil and watch the difference in price you pay

00:03:56.860 –> 00:03:58.940

00:03:58.940 –> 00:04:02.820
So very important there always stuff as you keep in your car as always folks

00:04:02.820 –> 00:04:05.560
You should always make sure you keep an eye on the spare tire

00:04:05.560 –> 00:04:10.660
Make sure you have a spare tire that has air in it the worst thing you can do is pull a spare tire down

00:04:10.660 –> 00:04:13.860
And it’s flat so once a year, so I recommend everybody

00:04:13.860 –> 00:04:18.700
You know just call them to their car and just take a look at the spare and make sure it’s got some air in it

00:04:18.700 –> 00:04:21.120
Two folks I want you to know

00:04:21.120 –> 00:04:23.160
very important a lot of times a

00:04:23.160 –> 00:04:29.960
Lot of cars newer car smaller cars nowadays. I have the doughnuts. They don’t have full spare tires

00:04:29.960 –> 00:04:33.000
Something you should really know about your car

00:04:33.000 –> 00:04:35.760
because the reason is is

00:04:35.760 –> 00:04:38.520
what happens with stuff like that is

00:04:39.040 –> 00:04:42.940
If you have you know we have a doughnut on say the front of your car, okay?

00:04:42.940 –> 00:04:48.640
You can very very easily you know kyder plants over that especially when the doughnuts at the front of the car

00:04:48.640 –> 00:04:52.320
Now you can’t plant things like that, but if you ever have a situation you blow a tire

00:04:52.320 –> 00:04:57.460
I always hope that it’s in the back because the having the doughnut on the front is gonna be a tough thing

00:04:57.460 –> 00:05:00.220
also do folks if you have a

00:05:00.220 –> 00:05:06.220
Car trailer a lot of people don’t think about this either folks you have a car trailer or any type of boat trailer

00:05:07.120 –> 00:05:09.900
ATV trailer anything you pull

00:05:09.900 –> 00:05:12.240
You know

00:05:12.240 –> 00:05:16.480
Anything on jet ski in like that you know you have a spare tire for that as well

00:05:16.480 –> 00:05:18.720
I know I see a lot of people that have you know trailers

00:05:18.720 –> 00:05:21.140
And they don’t have any spare tires for them

00:05:21.140 –> 00:05:26.800
And I find that rather interesting that you know you’re driving along here with your with your you know SUV with your family and your boat

00:05:26.800 –> 00:05:30.680
Behind you and the one thing you don’t have is a spare tire

00:05:30.680 –> 00:05:36.520
For the trailer that your your boat is on so I find that very thing got video flat and

00:05:36.760 –> 00:05:39.600
You know you know the weight of the boat went a lot on there

00:05:39.600 –> 00:05:43.160
I’d be scared to think how you would go ahead and change that tire

00:05:43.160 –> 00:05:46.280
Especially if you don’t have the things you need

00:05:46.280 –> 00:05:51.500
And the thing I would always recommend is you have a jack for your car obviously most cars have them

00:05:51.500 –> 00:05:56.360
But if you don’t you should have one if you do have a vehicle you pull behind you like a trailer something that you should always

00:05:56.360 –> 00:05:58.360
Have a jack a trailer jack for that as well

00:05:58.360 –> 00:06:03.340
This is a jack see come with your car by the way usually don’t work on those just so you know

00:06:03.400 –> 00:06:07.360
You’re probably gonna have to get what they call a trailer jack and keep that in the trunk as well

00:06:07.360 –> 00:06:13.780
So those are some things you definitely should have I recommend if you can have a can of fix-a-flat

00:06:13.780 –> 00:06:18.640
If I mean I’m not the greatest thing I don’t recommend fix-a-flat for for a flat tire

00:06:18.640 –> 00:06:21.560
You know all the time

00:06:21.560 –> 00:06:24.660
but an emergency pinch sometimes

00:06:24.660 –> 00:06:28.460
That can’t fix-a-flat can be a life saver

00:06:28.460 –> 00:06:31.320
and another thing folks you should always have is

00:06:31.900 –> 00:06:35.720
Some kind of way to blow up a tire they do sell

00:06:35.720 –> 00:06:39.400
Small air compression plug in your cigarette lighter. They’re like 20 bucks

00:06:39.400 –> 00:06:43.560
Or they actually do have I believe now cans you can actually buy

00:06:43.560 –> 00:06:50.060
Avera-sol cans when you plug it into the tire you can fill up one tire with it. That is another option as well

00:06:50.060 –> 00:06:53.760
I’m not saying you have to do it, but it is an an option

00:06:53.760 –> 00:06:59.520
Probably take up a little less space anyway than an air compression tire. Probably you can fill a tire up once with it so

00:07:00.040 –> 00:07:03.740
Disposable, but again, it’s an option if you really truly need it

00:07:03.740 –> 00:07:08.160
Coming down to the the stuff that you really should have

00:07:08.160 –> 00:07:13.800
in the car besides that you definitely should have a

00:07:13.800 –> 00:07:20.180
Blanket in your car definitely some way of keeping warmth in the car very important

00:07:20.180 –> 00:07:23.540
Did you keep you don’t usually have to have a big blanket like like a bedspread?

00:07:23.540 –> 00:07:26.480
You know King’s has bedspread there, but they do have

00:07:27.340 –> 00:07:30.900
Emergency blankets that you can keep in there they’ve there may be the size of a deck of cards

00:07:30.900 –> 00:07:35.540
And you open it up, and you just wrap yourself up with it. You know one or two of them in there would be good

00:07:35.540 –> 00:07:42.680
You know something to keep warm. I strongly recommend books you do as well along with that keep some type of

00:07:42.680 –> 00:07:48.620
Water in your car they do have you know keep a gallon of water that you buy at the store for a dollar

00:07:48.620 –> 00:07:54.320
Or you can actually they have to have if you’re concerned about keeping plastic water drop balls in the car with all the stuff you read

00:07:54.320 –> 00:07:55.740
in the news nowadays

00:07:55.740 –> 00:08:01.520
You can actually go ahead they actually do have UV bottles where you could put the water into UV protectors

00:08:01.520 –> 00:08:04.440
So we get the heat and all that so you don’t to worry about all that chemical stuff

00:08:04.440 –> 00:08:05.440
I know I’ve been reading on the news

00:08:05.440 –> 00:08:09.060
They say you should never drink a water bottle that’s been sitting in a car for a day or two because it could be

00:08:09.060 –> 00:08:13.320
You know get a chemicals in it, so they do have the UV bottles as well

00:08:13.320 –> 00:08:18.960
That’s that’s an option as well if you like or you can get a water bottle with the filter on this and that’s another option

00:08:20.760 –> 00:08:26.300
Another thing you should have I think you’re everybody should have in the back seat of their in the trunk of their car the back

00:08:26.300 –> 00:08:27.540
seat of their car

00:08:27.540 –> 00:08:30.080
Along with that is some kind of small first aid kit

00:08:30.080 –> 00:08:33.200
Now you never know when you’re on the road changing a tire

00:08:33.200 –> 00:08:35.400
Or if you’re fixing something on your car

00:08:35.400 –> 00:08:39.580
And you get a cut or something that you may need to clean that up and tape it up

00:08:39.580 –> 00:08:44.220
So definitely a small first aid kit. Nothing like you have in your go bag or nothing like you have maybe in your

00:08:44.220 –> 00:08:47.860
In your everyday carry, but maybe just something small just enough to say hey

00:08:47.980 –> 00:08:52.180
You know I got bandages this this this cut up on my finger on that you should always have something like that

00:08:52.180 –> 00:08:54.620
in the car

00:08:54.620 –> 00:09:00.180
You definitely want to have not only do you want to have the first aid kit, but you should also really consider

00:09:00.180 –> 00:09:07.700
Maybe putting some can’t know I don’t say canned food or maybe they can MRE or something like that something couple couple

00:09:07.700 –> 00:09:10.500
Nothing you don’t need like whole meals

00:09:10.500 –> 00:09:17.660
But just have some kind of food with you in case for some reason you know you never know you’re by yourself

00:09:17.900 –> 00:09:19.900

00:09:19.900 –> 00:09:24.500
There with somebody who’s a diabetic and you may want to keep you know nothing major

00:09:24.500 –> 00:09:28.080
But maybe just a something that you can you know quickly open up and eat

00:09:28.080 –> 00:09:32.860
You know not necessarily something you have to have but that was just a recommendation

00:09:32.860 –> 00:09:36.800
Something I think every car should have is a roll of duct tape

00:09:36.800 –> 00:09:40.640
I know you’re gonna say really and I’m gonna tell you yes, you’d be surprised

00:09:40.640 –> 00:09:44.260
What that $2 $3 roll of duct tape?

00:09:45.460 –> 00:09:51.780
Can do for you in a situation where you have a fender that’s falling off while you’re driving or you know that

00:09:51.780 –> 00:09:57.600
You know that the hood hood latch brake so you’re on the road you can tape down the hood

00:09:57.600 –> 00:10:02.620
You’d be surprised how much that roll of duct tape will be a life

00:10:02.620 –> 00:10:07.940
Saver for you. Okay, you you would be shocked if I told you how much?

00:10:07.940 –> 00:10:13.300
How much roll duct tape can make your life that much easier when you’re on the road?

00:10:14.060 –> 00:10:15.820

00:10:15.820 –> 00:10:22.700
Another thing folks do very important when you’re on the you know when you’re thinking about what to keep in your car

00:10:22.700 –> 00:10:28.460
You know there’s a lot of things you you could have a lot of stuff from the you know

00:10:28.460 –> 00:10:33.280
The everyday carry bag would work in there too. What I don’t recommend is don’t have any type of medications

00:10:33.280 –> 00:10:37.020
Right in the end in the car stuff of that can go bad rather quickly

00:10:37.020 –> 00:10:41.220
Especially the heat of the cold your cars out in the elements probably quite a bit

00:10:41.500 –> 00:10:47.220
So I’d recommend maybe not keeping that in there a lot of stuff from your everyday carry bag will work

00:10:47.220 –> 00:10:51.220
You know if you could in the back you might want to think about having you know

00:10:51.220 –> 00:10:58.020
Just a poncho or something like that and you’re gonna say why well, you know tired tires that always go flat when?

00:10:58.020 –> 00:11:03.180
You know bright and sunny outside so you may want to think about

00:11:03.180 –> 00:11:08.280
You know having something there if you’re going to get wet or even something maybe you could

00:11:08.740 –> 00:11:14.880
You could kneel on not just a poncho, but you know something else you can kneel on you may want to have you know

00:11:14.880 –> 00:11:20.800
Ruggers an old rug or something like that and you can kneel on but like I said the poncho is really important

00:11:20.800 –> 00:11:21.860
You’re gonna get soaked

00:11:21.860 –> 00:11:26.800
In the rain as well you can use it for cover and stuff like that if you’re or something to lay on the floor if it’s

00:11:26.800 –> 00:11:30.960
Wet some of that so there’s a lot of things in a couple dollar emergency poncho

00:11:30.960 –> 00:11:35.640
Could rather really make sure you know it makes your day a little better

00:11:36.900 –> 00:11:39.980
Strongly recommend to you in the back of the car you always have

00:11:39.980 –> 00:11:47.740
You know some sort of tool tool they have two multi kits so that you can not know it’s a multi tool

00:11:47.740 –> 00:11:49.860
But they have tool kits you could buy for your car

00:11:49.860 –> 00:11:52.380
They’re like maybe there may be

00:11:52.380 –> 00:11:56.900
$23 you throw that in the back of the car you be surprised how often not just when you’re fixing your car

00:11:56.900 –> 00:12:01.580
But how many times you’ll that that ratchet set will come in handy of that wrench?

00:12:01.580 –> 00:12:05.740
Will actually come in handy not just for your rear on the side of the road

00:12:06.140 –> 00:12:08.020
but for in general

00:12:08.020 –> 00:12:10.220
when you need you know really need to

00:12:10.220 –> 00:12:12.940
To you know to do something

00:12:12.940 –> 00:12:16.620
Maybe surprise how handy it can be and also to I strongly recommend

00:12:16.620 –> 00:12:19.940
One of the other things so you think about keeping your car is a can of wd-40

00:12:19.940 –> 00:12:23.600
And a rag you never know when you’re trying to get those lug nuts off

00:12:23.600 –> 00:12:26.420
They’re frozen on there if that tires have been rotated in a while

00:12:26.420 –> 00:12:32.820
You’d be surprised how quickly that can of wd-40 can loosen up those lugs and get you back in the road a little couple minutes

00:12:32.820 –> 00:12:39.380
Quicker especially a rag just clean your hands off with wipes another thing very important wipes are a good thing to have in your car

00:12:39.380 –> 00:12:42.340
You definitely are going to want to keep something

00:12:42.340 –> 00:12:45.780
paper towels I’ve recommend a roll of paper towels and

00:12:45.780 –> 00:12:51.420
Definitely recommend some Windex or something like that to clean your windshield or something like that because you never know

00:12:51.420 –> 00:12:56.220
You’re driving down the road and something hit your windshield, and you’ve got to clean it off because you can’t see that well

00:12:56.220 –> 00:13:00.320
You’d be surprised how much you really can use that that roll the Windex

00:13:01.420 –> 00:13:03.340
You know in the car

00:13:03.340 –> 00:13:07.340
So one of the things as well that I that I would think you would want to have in your car

00:13:07.340 –> 00:13:10.780
Not some things you have to have but you’d want to keep

00:13:10.780 –> 00:13:17.060
Definitely some power definitely. I was a paracord, but definitely a tow strap. You should have in the back of the car I

00:13:17.060 –> 00:13:21.300
Know people gonna think why we don’t touch every car. I have a car not a truck

00:13:21.300 –> 00:13:22.980
You know if you have a pickup truck

00:13:22.980 –> 00:13:26.240
I know it’s easy to have on them because you just tie and sit down, but if you have just a little car

00:13:26.940 –> 00:13:33.260
And I’m not talking about folks a dollar store tow strap. I’m talking like a good tow strap that you buy the store for seven or eight

00:13:33.260 –> 00:13:34.060

00:13:34.060 –> 00:13:38.600
You know well you’d be surprised you get stuck on the side of the road and somebody offers to pull you out

00:13:38.600 –> 00:13:40.760
Especially in the snow you’re stuck on the side of the road

00:13:40.760 –> 00:13:46.000
You can’t get out and somebody comes up to the big truck is hey can I pull you out if you need yeah?

00:13:46.000 –> 00:13:49.780
That’d be great. Hey. Do you have anything to pull you out with you’re like no?

00:13:49.780 –> 00:13:51.820

00:13:51.820 –> 00:13:55.620
You definitely want to think about maybe keep putting a tow strap in there

00:13:55.620 –> 00:14:00.060
They’re small they don’t take up a lot of space have a tow strap in your car in this little bucket. We’re talking about

00:14:00.060 –> 00:14:03.940
Another thing that’s real. That’s really really really important

00:14:03.940 –> 00:14:06.860
Like I said you you get stuck inside the room you need to get

00:14:06.860 –> 00:14:12.380
Need to get pulled out you need to be the one that has it and another thing too that I find

00:14:12.380 –> 00:14:18.700
Hysterical that a lot of people don’t have in their car for for safety or for you know any type of backup

00:14:18.700 –> 00:14:22.380
They don’t have

00:14:23.660 –> 00:14:25.660
Jumper cables, and I don’t know why

00:14:25.660 –> 00:14:28.140
Um I have a set in every car I own

00:14:28.140 –> 00:14:30.420
But I’m surprised that we don’t have jumper cables

00:14:30.420 –> 00:14:34.420
I don’t understand why you wouldn’t have a pair in your car, but some people don’t bother

00:14:34.420 –> 00:14:39.000
Nothing’s worse than when somebody pulls up to you, and you get a dead battery and like hey, could you tell me?

00:14:39.000 –> 00:14:40.860
Oh, yeah, sure do you have the cables?

00:14:40.860 –> 00:14:41.340

00:14:41.340 –> 00:14:42.060
I don’t

00:14:42.060 –> 00:14:47.300
So now you have an opportunity to be getting no cables that person’s not gonna come back around they may but very rarely do you get

00:14:47.300 –> 00:14:49.060
Somebody that comes back around

00:14:49.060 –> 00:14:52.940
You know with with tow cables or something that so there were jumper cables

00:14:53.460 –> 00:14:55.460
So I strongly recommend

00:14:55.460 –> 00:15:01.780
You get a pair of jumper cables, and you leave those bad boys in the back of the car, okay?

00:15:01.780 –> 00:15:08.900
Very important and let me tell you folks ever tell you this don’t get the cheap to $3 $4

00:15:08.900 –> 00:15:14.300
Jumper cables at the dollar store, okay, and I’ll tell you why one the thin the chintzy they break very easily

00:15:14.300 –> 00:15:16.540
That’s one, but two folks

00:15:16.540 –> 00:15:19.700
the one thing that’s nice about the jumper cables is

00:15:20.420 –> 00:15:26.420
The good ones is they give you a couple feet to work with you know when you’re when your car is stuck

00:15:26.420 –> 00:15:29.420
And you can’t move it and you have no way of starting it

00:15:29.420 –> 00:15:31.180
Nothing’s worse than the other driver

00:15:31.180 –> 00:15:34.200
Especially doing a favor having to maneuver his car in a weird

00:15:34.200 –> 00:15:38.740
Situation that could get him hit or hurt or something like that been in the middle of the road

00:15:38.740 –> 00:15:43.300
To jump you so because you have a two-foot of jumper cable always make sure

00:15:43.300 –> 00:15:46.580
You have a set of jumper cables in your car

00:15:46.580 –> 00:15:50.120
Ideally ideally you’d have one of those you know

00:15:50.400 –> 00:15:54.400
My jumps that you know you charge it in your you know in your garage

00:15:54.400 –> 00:15:57.240
And then you put it in the back you know in the backseat of your car

00:15:57.240 –> 00:16:01.000
And when you need you hook it up, and you can jump yourself that would be ideal

00:16:01.000 –> 00:16:04.160
But those take up a lot of space and you got to remember to charge them because the charge don’t last forever

00:16:04.160 –> 00:16:07.720
Okay, so very very important there

00:16:07.720 –> 00:16:10.000

00:16:10.000 –> 00:16:12.520
Always have a set of jumper cables in your car

00:16:12.520 –> 00:16:18.080
The one thing I do tell people and I’m gonna be honest about this one of these that drives me nuts is

00:16:18.320 –> 00:16:21.040
One thing I actually don’t recommend. I see people do it I

00:16:21.040 –> 00:16:26.980
Don’t recommend you keeping extra gas in your car for a couple reasons one

00:16:26.980 –> 00:16:32.700
It smells two if it’s in your car for a long time unattended and unopened eventually the container will swell

00:16:32.700 –> 00:16:37.000
They could I mean you can’t even explode I mean it gets hot enough it can catch on fire

00:16:37.000 –> 00:16:42.160
So I don’t recommend leaving gas in your car as a backup that I don’t recommend

00:16:42.160 –> 00:16:47.760
All I can recommend with that is just keep it on the gas gauge if you see you get loaded a quarter of a tank fill

00:16:47.760 –> 00:16:49.760
up or a AAA

00:16:49.760 –> 00:16:55.360
But that’s really I can recommend that that’s nothing I am gonna recommend books is you know one of the best

00:16:55.360 –> 00:16:57.640
$99 investments you can make

00:16:57.640 –> 00:17:02.600
Is having a triple-a card now. I know you guys are going to say well. That’s expensive I

00:17:02.600 –> 00:17:06.500
Understand that it can cost money to have triple-a, and I do get that okay

00:17:06.500 –> 00:17:11.840
Well one thing triple-a is doing for you. Okay. Is they are providing you a

00:17:12.360 –> 00:17:18.080
Couple of things folks I want to point out a couple things triple-a does yeah, I know there’s membership offers other

00:17:18.080 –> 00:17:20.080
They can save you money, and I understand that

00:17:20.080 –> 00:17:26.900
Which adds a benefit of having it, but one of the things you don’t realize folks is triple-a with the most of the plans

00:17:26.900 –> 00:17:28.440
the good plans

00:17:28.440 –> 00:17:30.440
will give you a

00:17:30.440 –> 00:17:35.520
200 mile toe now. I’m not saying every plan will most of the good plans at over 100 bucks

00:17:35.520 –> 00:17:40.820
I believe offer you one 200 mile tail now that doesn’t sound you’re saying what am I gonna use that?

00:17:41.360 –> 00:17:43.360
You would be surprised

00:17:43.360 –> 00:17:45.680
how far

00:17:45.680 –> 00:17:48.580
You may need a toe

00:17:48.580 –> 00:17:51.760
you know I was visiting my wife at the time and

00:17:51.760 –> 00:17:57.880
Well, she was my wife sometimes. She’s in my girlfriend at the time, but she was I went to visit her

00:17:57.880 –> 00:17:59.880
when she was working someplace and

00:17:59.880 –> 00:18:04.720
It was about 150 miles from where I was and I drove all the way down there

00:18:04.720 –> 00:18:10.060
And when I got down there transmission blew in my car and triple-a towed my car and me

00:18:11.120 –> 00:18:16.200
All the way from where I was from her all the way up to the mechanic by my house

00:18:16.200 –> 00:18:18.200
And it didn’t cost me a penny

00:18:18.200 –> 00:18:23.240
As for that ask call a bank tow company if you really want to know call being told coming ask them how much

00:18:23.240 –> 00:18:25.480
150 miles 200 mile Toby

00:18:25.480 –> 00:18:30.220
And and find out the hundred dollars 120 dollars however much it is a year

00:18:30.220 –> 00:18:31.480
I think it’s 100

00:18:31.480 –> 00:18:36.120
I think it’s maybe even 120 if you get the gold you don’t have to get the gold they can get them

00:18:36.120 –> 00:18:37.380
I think you can get the

00:18:37.380 –> 00:18:39.380
anything get the plan you can get the

00:18:39.840 –> 00:18:43.440
Silver some of that I think we still get a pretty long toe, but you have to look

00:18:43.440 –> 00:18:46.520
I’m not an expert on triple-a, but call them up and see

00:18:46.520 –> 00:18:52.840
How much that hundred and two hundred mile toe will cost and you see if it’s not worth your money?

00:18:52.840 –> 00:18:54.800

00:18:54.800 –> 00:18:58.000
And you get four toes a year folks you only get one 200 miles

00:18:58.000 –> 00:18:59.040
I’ll be a four toes a year

00:18:59.040 –> 00:18:59.720

00:18:59.720 –> 00:19:03.280
And you’d be surprised how much a tow job if you’re stuck on the side of the road

00:19:03.280 –> 00:19:07.320
And you need them to tell you to a service station you’d be surprised how much that toe would

00:19:07.800 –> 00:19:10.000
Will cost you for 10 20 miles

00:19:10.000 –> 00:19:14.400
Hey, nothing folks to you and don’t want to realize – not guaranteed

00:19:14.400 –> 00:19:15.640
You’re gonna break down in the middle of the day

00:19:15.640 –> 00:19:20.560
And then pull out your iPhone and you’re gonna be able to find somebody that’ll get you at that moment

00:19:20.560 –> 00:19:24.920
You know triple-a they do a legwork they have the contacts they have the people in the area

00:19:24.920 –> 00:19:28.920
They have they have the way of getting them to you they guarantee the people are going to come to you

00:19:28.920 –> 00:19:31.840
Okay, I’m not gonna lie before I had triple-a. I got something side road

00:19:31.840 –> 00:19:33.880
I call three toe places, but one of them finally came and got me

00:19:33.880 –> 00:19:37.440
Okay, I was stuck side road for almost two and a half hours waiting to find a tow company

00:19:37.720 –> 00:19:40.040
Okay, so take the time

00:19:40.040 –> 00:19:47.920
Okay, and and break down and and get the triple-a. Okay, it’s it’s worth it. Okay. It really is

00:19:47.920 –> 00:19:53.600
I’m not doing an advertisement for them. They don’t pay me to advertise for them, but I’m telling you for safety purposes

00:19:53.600 –> 00:19:57.440
If I would recommend it you get stuck midnight

00:19:57.440 –> 00:20:02.480
11 o’clock 12 o’clock and a place you don’t know and you got to start looking up on your phone

00:20:02.480 –> 00:20:04.480
That’s if you have reception by the way

00:20:04.480 –> 00:20:07.560
If you have enough reception, you know, you usually have enough reception. You can make a phone call

00:20:07.560 –> 00:20:13.640
Sometimes you don’t always have enough reception to Google search something. Okay, so I strongly recommend for safety purposes

00:20:13.640 –> 00:20:16.940
You spend that money that’s money well spent get the triple-a card keeping your wallet

00:20:16.940 –> 00:20:23.820
Okay, and and that is hundred twenty dollars hundred bucks hundred twenty dollars well spent a year for your safety

00:20:23.820 –> 00:20:27.020
Okay, that is money. That is an investment in your safety

00:20:27.020 –> 00:20:31.300
Okay, imagine you are in a bad neighborhood or in a bad area somewhere

00:20:31.300 –> 00:20:35.240
You do not know anybody you are you can’t get into the car because it’s that rough of an area

00:20:35.240 –> 00:20:38.740
You’d be surprised how happy you’d be to see that triple-a guy

00:20:38.740 –> 00:20:45.720
Okay, they’re doing all the legwork. They have all the contacts. They’re doing everything for you. Okay, they’re doing the research for you

00:20:45.720 –> 00:20:48.520
So, I mean it’s it’s worth it. It really is

00:20:48.520 –> 00:20:54.640
Any I don’t know many people that are preppers that don’t have triple-a or so

00:20:54.640 –> 00:20:58.940
And I think it’s a triple-a this I’m used to have to take trip because that’s what I have. They have other ones

00:20:58.940 –> 00:21:02.640
I don’t know if there’s good as triple-a. They have car club. They have on star. There’s a lot of them

00:21:02.640 –> 00:21:08.900
I only know triple-a because I’ve had them for a long time and they’ve done me right and they’ve towed my car some 100 miles

00:21:08.900 –> 00:21:14.200
I think I’ve got 100 miles 150 miles. So I’ve gotten two big toes. I see both the same here

00:21:14.200 –> 00:21:16.820
I’m glad I got rid of that car, but you know

00:21:16.820 –> 00:21:21.060
They’ve done that, you know, they they’ve done done me right now

00:21:21.060 –> 00:21:23.660
I’m not saying they’re good for everybody, but they’ve done well for me

00:21:23.660 –> 00:21:28.040
But again you as a person are going to have to sit back look and say hey

00:21:28.760 –> 00:21:32.920
Which one’s best for me which was most cost effective and which one you’re gonna get?

00:21:32.920 –> 00:21:38.480
Okay, another thing folks. I do recommend that you get for your car. So that is

00:21:38.480 –> 00:21:44.020
Some sort now I want to say the deal. I’m gonna say easy passes. I’m here on the East Coast

00:21:44.020 –> 00:21:49.140
I know it’s not easy pass in the West Coast. I know it’s not easy pass down south. Okay, I

00:21:49.140 –> 00:21:52.480
Recommend you get one of those speed passes and I will tell you why

00:21:52.480 –> 00:21:56.080
Okay, if you’re in a situation

00:21:57.440 –> 00:22:00.040
When you’re in an emergency and you have to get somewhere

00:22:00.040 –> 00:22:01.760

00:22:01.760 –> 00:22:04.660
You do not want to be waiting in that line

00:22:04.660 –> 00:22:10.420
Okay, of course that that sea of humanity waiting to go through a toll booth with chains

00:22:10.420 –> 00:22:14.600
Have you ever noticed there’s hardly ever a line at the easy pass lane?

00:22:14.600 –> 00:22:19.200
Look at the easy pass lane. Okay, look at it

00:22:19.200 –> 00:22:25.940
Do you ever ever ever see a line at that easy pass lane? No, you don’t you never do

00:22:26.160 –> 00:22:29.660
Okay, because people fly right through it and they’re through okay

00:22:29.660 –> 00:22:33.760
Imagine you’re in a situation got forbid where you’re we’re got food. You have to get to the hospital

00:22:33.760 –> 00:22:35.560
You know somebody, you know

00:22:35.560 –> 00:22:39.660
Somebody’s injured something that you have to get the hospital there in the car with you or say they’re there and you’re trying to get

00:22:39.660 –> 00:22:44.520
There got forbid they’re rushing on your wife’s having a baby. You got it. You waited till last minute. You got to get there

00:22:44.520 –> 00:22:52.080
Got forbid, you know, you’re injured and you’re driving yourself to the hospital that imagine now you have to stop at the toll booth

00:22:52.080 –> 00:22:56.160
I asked you know, pull up the money hand the guy the money. He’s gonna hand you back the change

00:22:56.160 –> 00:22:59.260
Oh, yeah, or you could just flew right through that easy pass line

00:22:59.260 –> 00:23:01.280

00:23:01.280 –> 00:23:06.600
Very very important especially in case of an emergency to be the ability to be able to go right through the toll

00:23:06.600 –> 00:23:09.120
Okay, it’s very important

00:23:09.120 –> 00:23:16.040
Not saying everybody has to have one, but I’m telling you I have one in my car because I think it’s a vital

00:23:16.040 –> 00:23:18.360
piece of

00:23:18.360 –> 00:23:19.720
safety equipment

00:23:19.720 –> 00:23:21.120

00:23:21.120 –> 00:23:25.200
Another thing to folks we were just talking about calling triple-a and you know brought it up then

00:23:25.200 –> 00:23:27.960
Another thing you’re going to want to think about folks

00:23:27.960 –> 00:23:33.980
Okay, if you’re not sure if it’s for you or not, but the other thing you may want to think about

00:23:33.980 –> 00:23:36.880
Okay is

00:23:36.880 –> 00:23:43.040
Getting some type of emergency radio in the car now, I’m not saying it’s me ham radio

00:23:43.040 –> 00:23:48.720
I have a ham radio with me at all times because I am a ham and I do like to not only chat

00:23:48.840 –> 00:23:51.880
But I also have used it in a couple of merchants right now cell phone receptions

00:23:51.880 –> 00:23:54.040
They’m up here in the mountains in Pennsylvania

00:23:54.040 –> 00:23:58.400
But some of the things you may want to look about folks is they do sell

00:23:58.400 –> 00:24:01.320
emergency car radios

00:24:01.320 –> 00:24:06.240
Hey, they’re handheld. Yeah, they plug in the cigarette lighter and you’re able to call

00:24:06.240 –> 00:24:13.080
From from emergency you’re able to call an emergency emergency contacts on the it’s not like a cell phone

00:24:13.080 –> 00:24:19.840
It’s actually where you I think it lets you call like the like 911 and not not some a cell phone call but radio call them

00:24:19.840 –> 00:24:22.400
Some of that you may want to look at

00:24:22.400 –> 00:24:25.680
Okay, what?

00:24:25.680 –> 00:24:28.940
You had something you may want to look at with that

00:24:28.940 –> 00:24:33.720
Okay, I know up here where I am. There is a lot of times

00:24:33.720 –> 00:24:38.520
Okay, where I am unable to use my cell phone because there’s no cell phone reception

00:24:38.520 –> 00:24:42.640
Okay. Now have I have have I had it happen with my car? Yes once

00:24:43.000 –> 00:24:48.720
Will happen to you it may not okay, but they’re they’re not that expensive

00:24:48.720 –> 00:24:52.600
I’ve seen them on Amazon for under 100 bucks

00:24:52.600 –> 00:24:56.160
It may be something you may want to put on your Christmas list or something like that

00:24:56.160 –> 00:24:58.480
That’s something you have to get baby today

00:24:58.480 –> 00:25:05.040
But it may be something very useful to have in your car in the case of an emergency

00:25:05.040 –> 00:25:12.560
Okay, so that’s something you may want to you may want to stick in the back seat and or in the in the trunk

00:25:12.560 –> 00:25:15.320
But the rest of this stuff and just to have it

00:25:15.320 –> 00:25:17.520
like I said very

00:25:17.520 –> 00:25:19.220
very important

00:25:19.220 –> 00:25:22.720
To have something like that in your car in the case of an emergency

00:25:22.720 –> 00:25:28.080
You never know when you may not be able to go ahead and and call for an emergency

00:25:28.080 –> 00:25:36.540
So very very important a couple of things folks. I do recommend you keep in the car. Not necessarily something you have to keep

00:25:36.540 –> 00:25:39.200
But I strongly recommend like I said

00:25:40.120 –> 00:25:43.900
Keep they have warmers they have not so much hand wars

00:25:43.900 –> 00:25:49.800
They have strip farmers where you crack them and you can hold them in your hands or put them under your clothes that keep you warm

00:25:49.800 –> 00:25:56.760
There there maybe there may be like five six bucks for a box at like Walmart or a place like that

00:25:56.760 –> 00:26:02.080
And you keep in the back your car and what like you’re saying? What do you need it for? Well, you know

00:26:02.080 –> 00:26:04.780
If you have a flat tire, you can keep the car running and keep the heat on you

00:26:05.360 –> 00:26:11.680
In the winter in the you know, the problem is say the car breaks down to a point where you can’t turn it on

00:26:11.680 –> 00:26:14.740
Okay, and you’re stuck inside or waiting for AAA

00:26:14.740 –> 00:26:20.260
You’d be surprised how quickly a heater a little little little on a heat like that under a blanket

00:26:20.260 –> 00:26:23.080
That we were talking about can really warm you up

00:26:23.080 –> 00:26:26.880
Especially if you have somebody who’s elderly and really can’t be in the cold

00:26:26.880 –> 00:26:30.880
Because of health issues that you use a price how much that’ll be able to help them out

00:26:31.560 –> 00:26:36.560
Also, if you have little kids last thing what think about your kids, you know, we’re trying to call triple as a scene

00:26:36.560 –> 00:26:39.120
I’m cold. I’m cold. I’m cool

00:26:39.120 –> 00:26:43.000
You know last thing you want to eat, you know in a situation you want to don’t you want to try to have it?

00:26:43.000 –> 00:26:47.120
There’s much for clear hand. So you maybe can alleviate that

00:26:47.120 –> 00:26:53.080
The only thing to a couple people have have mentioned to me that they thought was useful to keep in your car

00:26:53.080 –> 00:26:57.400
Not necessarily a necessity, but if you have a little if you have kids or something like that

00:26:58.640 –> 00:27:03.160
One of the things somebody has mentioned to me to have with them as some kind of entertainment for them

00:27:03.160 –> 00:27:05.580
whether it be some toys or whether it be

00:27:05.580 –> 00:27:10.940
Some kind of game that they complain not so much. Maybe a digital game, but like, you know

00:27:10.940 –> 00:27:14.680
Checkers something like that some kind of entertainment for them

00:27:14.680 –> 00:27:16.760
only because

00:27:16.760 –> 00:27:18.760
again, you know kids

00:27:18.760 –> 00:27:21.760
Kids have a hard time, you know waiting and nothing all kids over

00:27:21.760 –> 00:27:26.480
I’ve told her myself and I’m not gonna lie and I never even thought about it myself until a woman

00:27:26.480 –> 00:27:32.680
I know recommended it to me. She had said to me, you know, hey, you know one thing you should really recommend to your audience

00:27:32.680 –> 00:27:37.900
That they should really keep some form of entertainment for their kids on hand for them

00:27:37.900 –> 00:27:42.340
In case of and I said, you know, I honestly never really even thought about it

00:27:42.340 –> 00:27:46.340
But it definitely would be a good thing to have

00:27:46.340 –> 00:27:51.540
Another thing folks I do recommend and this is gonna be tough if you have a family with you

00:27:51.920 –> 00:27:57.480
But one thing I do another thing I do recommend that I do in my car and it saved me a couple a couple times

00:27:57.480 –> 00:28:02.200
Is I do recommend and is having a change of clothes in the car a change

00:28:02.200 –> 00:28:05.640
You know, I know every we all have old clothes. We don’t use anymore

00:28:05.640 –> 00:28:08.860
I recommend keeping like an old pair of jeans in the car an old shirt

00:28:08.860 –> 00:28:14.420
You know, maybe a pair of socks. I don’t mean anything for underwear, but

00:28:14.420 –> 00:28:17.200
you’ll know that but I would but

00:28:18.200 –> 00:28:21.880
You know, but definitely a pair of old pair of shoes and what you do is what you get those

00:28:21.880 –> 00:28:23.960
They sell those ziploc bags

00:28:23.960 –> 00:28:27.640
At like Walmart and stuff like that those ziploc bagging bag for a couple dollars

00:28:27.640 –> 00:28:32.080
You put the clothes in the ziploc bag the shoes the socks the jeans a shirt

00:28:32.080 –> 00:28:37.400
All that stick in the bag you zip it up and I’ll keep it pretty watertight. And the reason why I say this folks

00:28:37.400 –> 00:28:40.960
If you’re going to be switching the snow or in the rain

00:28:40.960 –> 00:28:47.800
Changing a tire you’re gonna be soaked and or you’re outside trying to fix the car. You’re gonna get drenched

00:28:48.120 –> 00:28:52.880
So you’d be surprised how quickly that change of clothes change of dry clothes can make you feel like a new man

00:28:52.880 –> 00:28:57.200
Or a new woman in that case. I’m not saying to care for everybody

00:28:57.200 –> 00:29:01.080
You know you maybe you know yourself, maybe your wife

00:29:01.080 –> 00:29:07.040
I don’t know if your kids will be outside helping you change the tire, but you know or change fix the car or whatever that but

00:29:07.040 –> 00:29:11.520
You’d be surprised or in any situation how much sometimes a change of clothes

00:29:11.520 –> 00:29:13.720
can become

00:29:13.720 –> 00:29:16.560
rather handy in a situation

00:29:17.440 –> 00:29:20.340
I like you folks. I said duct tape duct tape back there

00:29:20.340 –> 00:29:25.000
I recommend that I know that you may want to keep books back there is paracord a little bit of that

00:29:25.000 –> 00:29:26.240
You don’t need a lot

00:29:26.240 –> 00:29:29.200
Maybe want to keep maybe 10 20 feet of paracord in the back

00:29:29.200 –> 00:29:34.000
You never know many to tie something down or something that this is so much just for survival, but

00:29:34.000 –> 00:29:38.160
Or necessity, but you never know when you may need to just tie something down

00:29:38.160 –> 00:29:43.080
You know, I’ve been a situation where you know, I didn’t have my truck with me and I you know

00:29:43.080 –> 00:29:46.840
my wife said you want to bring home a table from the you know, the

00:29:47.160 –> 00:29:49.880
First of stores they go crap. I need some to tie the trunk down

00:29:49.880 –> 00:29:55.880
So just little things like that’s a little paracord even some even some I see bigger records much stronger

00:29:55.880 –> 00:29:58.240
But even some string or a little bit of rope

00:29:58.240 –> 00:30:01.880
You know definitely can can help you out a little bit

00:30:01.880 –> 00:30:03.940
I always recommend keeping that in the back of the car as well

00:30:03.940 –> 00:30:06.440
You never know what a little thing like that

00:30:06.440 –> 00:30:11.680
Can really really help you out in a bit of a bit of a bind

00:30:12.880 –> 00:30:17.200
No, there are a lot of things you need, you know, I think you can keep in your car

00:30:17.200 –> 00:30:19.880
It’s more that’s what you need. You’ll you’ll know more what you need

00:30:19.880 –> 00:30:22.400
Those are mostly just the essentials that you should keep in your car

00:30:22.400 –> 00:30:26.960
I do recommend to folks when it comes to keep making sure you have things in your car that you need

00:30:26.960 –> 00:30:32.800
I always recommend trying to keep your updated registration updated insurance in the glove box

00:30:32.800 –> 00:30:34.900
It’s that easy accessible not just so much for you

00:30:34.900 –> 00:30:38.280
But when somebody basically should borrow your car some of that so they know where it is

00:30:38.480 –> 00:30:43.320
Always make sure the registration signs and nobody goes through a hassle and by the way folks in certain states

00:30:43.320 –> 00:30:47.680
I want you to know if you need a registration sign. That’s a $60 fine. I just so you know nothing everywhere

00:30:47.680 –> 00:30:49.680
but certain states there are

00:30:49.680 –> 00:30:54.960
And the 60 to 60 to $70 fine and a lot of states we don’t have a registration sign

00:30:54.960 –> 00:30:58.920
Also to folks nothing make sure you have the proper sticker on your license plate

00:30:58.920 –> 00:31:01.560
Always make sure your proper registration stickers on your license plate

00:31:01.560 –> 00:31:07.080
Make sure you know, obviously you’re updating your inspection and all that kind of stuff a little things like this not only

00:31:08.120 –> 00:31:10.040
help you out

00:31:10.040 –> 00:31:12.040
but also to

00:31:12.040 –> 00:31:14.200
You know can really make

00:31:14.200 –> 00:31:18.160
The difference between having a headache, you know, I mean the worst thing you want

00:31:18.160 –> 00:31:21.140
I’m not saying but God bid you’re you’re gonna rush to get some out just so much

00:31:21.140 –> 00:31:24.760
You know saying, you know an emergency situation

00:31:24.760 –> 00:31:28.240
But say you’re in a rush to get to work or something like that. The worst thing you want to do is get pulled over

00:31:28.240 –> 00:31:33.040
You know get get hit with a ticket and then they not only do you get hit they know you’re late for work

00:31:33.040 –> 00:31:36.280
So keeping your registration and insurance all that information up-to-date

00:31:37.120 –> 00:31:40.640
Inspection and all that can really really just make your life that much better

00:31:40.640 –> 00:31:43.360
on a day

00:31:43.360 –> 00:31:47.080
You know, I really really can’t also do books. I’ll tell them they do want to point out

00:31:47.080 –> 00:31:50.280
As far as inspections go in your car

00:31:50.280 –> 00:31:54.880
I always recommend try not to go in the last day of the month to get your car inspected because if something’s wrong with the

00:31:54.880 –> 00:31:58.000
Car and you can’t get it fixed that day. You’re going to be driving around an out-of-date

00:31:58.000 –> 00:32:02.040
Inspection and God bid you have any type of accident in the car, by the way

00:32:02.040 –> 00:32:05.840
The first thing the insurance is gonna say well, hey your your inspection wasn’t up-to-date in the car

00:32:06.200 –> 00:32:11.680
So always try to make sure that stuff is always kept up-to-date as much as you can. I

00:32:11.680 –> 00:32:14.400
Know sometimes life gets in the way of things

00:32:14.400 –> 00:32:19.000
But sometimes little little things like that can really, you know

00:32:19.000 –> 00:32:23.520
Make your life just a little just that little bit easier that you may

00:32:23.520 –> 00:32:30.080
Surprised enough, you know get get really make your life that little bit easier and really help you out with stuff like that. So

00:32:30.080 –> 00:32:32.640
very important there

00:32:33.120 –> 00:32:38.280
Like I said folks always maintenance on the vehicle very important and also to folks

00:32:38.280 –> 00:32:40.240
Well, you do want to point out I see this happen quite often

00:32:40.240 –> 00:32:46.460
I just want to point I want to point this out if you’re towing any type of trailer or anything behind you

00:32:46.460 –> 00:32:51.600
Always make sure folks that not only do you have the registration for your vehicle?

00:32:51.600 –> 00:32:55.920
But also make sure you have the registration and insurance for the whatever you’re towing with you

00:32:55.920 –> 00:32:59.900
So if you’re towing a trailer or is make sure you have the registration trailer with you because if you get pulled over the police

00:33:00.360 –> 00:33:03.360
Will ask for it also to folks if you are pulling a trailer

00:33:03.360 –> 00:33:06.040
with a truck or a car

00:33:06.040 –> 00:33:09.560
Not saying that, you know, it’s ever going to happen

00:33:09.560 –> 00:33:13.880
But if you are pulling a trailer if you do always make sure you have the right hitch for the prop for it

00:33:13.880 –> 00:33:17.300
Always make sure you know, you’re the you have the proper hookup for the brakes

00:33:17.300 –> 00:33:21.200
If you don’t need brakes, obviously always make sure you have the proper hookup

00:33:21.200 –> 00:33:23.920
For the brake lights and all that, you know

00:33:23.920 –> 00:33:26.760
Some people that pull the small trails behind them with ATVs on them

00:33:27.120 –> 00:33:31.160
You want to make sure you have the right ball and you definitely want to make sure you have the right

00:33:31.160 –> 00:33:36.300
You know the right ball the right hitch and you always make sure you have you’re able to hook up the lights

00:33:36.300 –> 00:33:39.760
So people know when you’re turning it left right all that kind of stuff very important

00:33:39.760 –> 00:33:42.880
Now you don’t want to get into an accident somebody say hey, well those lights weren’t hooked up

00:33:42.880 –> 00:33:47.720
So that’s another very important thing just a little tidbit. You may want to remember

00:33:47.720 –> 00:33:52.200
You know when dealing with all this kind of you know

00:33:52.200 –> 00:33:55.540
It’s surprising how much these little these little tips can sometimes make your life

00:33:56.160 –> 00:33:58.160
Just that much easier

00:33:58.160 –> 00:34:03.440
Another thing folks to know you should if you want I know we have cell phones nowadays

00:34:03.440 –> 00:34:08.160
One thing somebody did point out to me today as I said, well, what about the GPS?

00:34:08.160 –> 00:34:12.560
I think most of us have GPS on our phone nowadays. You may not necessarily need a GPS in your car

00:34:12.560 –> 00:34:15.760
With cell phones if you want you can have one

00:34:15.760 –> 00:34:18.600
The phone is probably gonna be more up to date over that

00:34:18.600 –> 00:34:22.880
You know one thing I do recommend having your car is a phone charger

00:34:22.880 –> 00:34:26.880
If you are gonna be using the GPS obviously makes you a phone charger if you buy a charger at a gas station

00:34:26.880 –> 00:34:30.180
On the side of a highway you’re gonna be spending a ton of money on it

00:34:30.180 –> 00:34:33.220
Just write a phone charger in there most cars nowadays do come with

00:34:33.220 –> 00:34:39.240
I mean one nowadays me used to use a cigarette letter nowadays most cars some cars even come with a USB port built right in

00:34:39.240 –> 00:34:43.680
So you just might want to think about that maybe something like that would be handy to have in your car

00:34:43.680 –> 00:34:47.340
So I think that that’s pretty much it

00:34:47.340 –> 00:34:51.680
You know car maintenance again always make sure the heat and air work if you’re going to be in
