What's in your trunk? Don't remember? Go outside, open your trunk and look....come back and report here,...on line, SI.

I've got various cloth shopping bags, a sweatshirt, a lawn chair, jumper cables, spare tire with changing gear that goes along with the job, windshield wiper fluid, an umbrella and a blanket.

The contents will change once colder weather appears again.

I don't own a car

But when I did, way back in the day, I always kept a blanket, a first aid kit, and bags of nonperishable food/bottled water to give out to the homeless who asked for donations on the freeway on ramps.

I don't have a trunk - just the space behind the 3rd row of seats. At the moment it contains recycling, recycling, and more recycling.

Oh no - and overdue library books! I swear I returned those last week!

Beach chair
Beach blanket
Camp chair
Various magazines
Gym clothes (in a canvas bag-at least they're not strewn all over the trunk)
Yoga mat
Somewhere underneath all of this is a spare tire-I hope!

whatdoto posted 7/10/2013 11:27 AM

I have a 4 door truck.
rifle behind back seat and
tie downs
WH thinks I need these in the event I see a coyote on the way to work and I pull over to shoot it (it's gone by then!)
Tie downs in case I have to tie it down. Huh?

That's about it.
I keep a really clean truck.

In my Jeep:

* 2 picnic blankets in their own fabric carrying bags
* Six folded pool towels. There are usually ten or more
* Two pool noodles
* First aid kit strapped onto the roll bar
* My toolbox, strapped to a metal loop

In Mr. T's minivan:

* Two spears with horsehair decoration
* Two staves of different lengths
* Two broadswords with silk scarves tied to the handles
* A gym bag with at least two gis and a pair of martial arts shoes
* Ace bandages. He just tosses rolled-up ones back there willy nilly, "just in case"
* A big cardboard box which he regularly refills with heavy plastic lidded to-go coffee cups when his desk at work gets too crowded with them

No trunk. I have a small SUV.

All that's in the back compartment is my golf bag loaded with my clubs, shoes, balls, tees, towels, and some h20.

My yoga mat is in the back seat along with my back-up umbrella.

That's about it.

ETA: Thinking I should at minimum get some kind of safety kit in there.
