5 Things Someone From the Duluth, Superior Area Always Has in Their Car
Here we are finally in summer and as I looked through my vehicle I noticed I had some things still accessible that I keep in there year round. Then I took a road trip with a friend of mine and realized they had some of the same things.
I quickly realized that there are just some things that people in Duluth, Superior, Hermantown, Two Harbors, Cloquet and all across the Northland always have in their vehicle.
In the summer you can quickly get a massive bug mess on your windshield. In the winter it can be a salty, sandy, snowy disaster. Windshield washer fluid is a year-round must. Remember to transition to the kind that's harder to freeze before the snow falls.
Jumper cables can save you in the winter and allow you to be the hero for someone else. It's not a bad idea to keep them handy at all times because you never know when someone will leave a door cracked open or leave the lights on.
Yes, I still have an ice scraper in my vehicle. I know there really is no need to still have this in there, but our summer's are so short that what's the point of taking it out. Plus, I know I'll be ready when we get snow in a few months.
A shovel tends to come in handy in winter more than any other season, but if you have a small shovel keep it in there year-round. You never know when you're out camping and the need to dig will arise.
For me, it's beef jerky. For others it may be crackers or candy, but food is a must to have in the car. In the summer, after I go running or I'm driving to a softball game without dinner, it's perfect. In the winter, it could save you if you get stranded in a storm.
These are 5 things I always have in my vehicle, I bet you you have at least a couple in yours. What did I miss?
