Winter is upon us – Sir Jimmie

Although we are fierce knights – we must always be prepared for battle. With dragons? Nay! We must be e’er ready to battle the snow! Preparation starts with ye horse (or in this case, ye car).

According to the ND Department of Transportation, you should keep these items in an accessible place in ye vehicle, as they are ye winter survival kit:

  • A cup
  • Water
  • Nylon rope
  • Toilet paper
  • Something to read to help you stay awake
  • A radio and flashlight with extra batteries
  • Bright red or orange cloth and whistle to signal for help
  • Several blankets or a sleeping bag – ye armor can only keep ye so warm!
  • Food, such as hard candy, raisins, nuts, granola bars, dehydrated fruit, and jerky.
  • A source of heat, such as a multiple wick candle can heater with matches. Knights BEWARE: a lighter may not work in the extreme cold.

Stay safe, Jimmies!
