    ~ Got my oil changed Thursday then got my exhaust put completely back together
    ~ Got my tires put on yesterday

    Today
    ~ Went to meijer and got a US atlas.
    ~ Went to the office and printed my directions.
    ~ Called the eye doctor place and set up and appointment to get my prescription updated tomorrow at noon. (yay i'll be able to read road signs without squinting!)
    ~ Picked up a carton of cigs for the week.
    ~ Washed my car. (and now it's raining, fuckers)
    ~ Doing my laundry as we speak so I can begin packing for 10 days worth of being not here in boring New Haven.


    What kind of emergency roadside tools should I take?

    I have a flashlight, jack/tire wrench, tire pressure gauge, cig lighter air pump.

    Oh... remind me to not forget my whiskey. :ph34r:

    A plug kit and a can of fix-a-flat =). I had to fix a nasty whole in my tire on the side of the interstate... Thank god I had both the plug and fix-a-flat. They're both cheap and I highly recommend it... Some sort of protection! I watched my father shoot a man while we were on the side of I-95. Funny story, but to keep it short, it was an ATTEMPTED robbery. As a redneck though, I always have a buck knife or some random hunk of metal with me =P

    I'm not going to attempt to rob anyone... so I think I'll be safe with my tire iron.

    I didn't insist you rob anyone, but do what you please, it was just a suggestion that you asked for....Snippy bastard.

    I would make sure I took a variety of metric tools. Never know when you might need that 10 mm wrench .

    Lotion and nakins.

    I've always wondered where to put it... if I put it in the gas door... it would be useless cause you have to get in the car to unlock the gas door... under the car. great, yeah hit a bump and the magnet slides off and is lost.

    Indiana roads = pothole heaven.

    Coffee, soda, or energy drinks. Cash for food, gas and tolls. Just make sure you keep it above a 1/4 tank at all times. It sucks when you are going through hick towns with like one gas station and hardly any gas, especially when they don't accept your gas card fun shit.
