old guy bag in car - 10-22-2019, 10:40 AM

I recently started a thread about being denied using the bath room at a business.

Does anyone carry an old guys bag in their car?
I do.
It has clean socks,underwear and jeans.
Just in case of an accident.

A Z-car buddy of mine does, and has since in his 50's....he's 66 now. The first time I saw it, I was like WTF, we were out on a run @ a car meet. Bag contained a pair of undies, socks, and a pack of baby wipes and some dry wipies.....


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.


I have never quoted someone in my signature....but I found such a shallow idiotic comment like this worthy!

Ever since I started trout fishing and wading I always keep extra clothes. Never know when accidental swimming can take place. I don't fish necessarily year round but I keep those clothes in the vehicle all the time. Toilet paper was the first thing to go in the fishing vehicle.

I'm not officially an old man yet though.

Not yet, but a knife comes in handy for removing your drawers without removing jeans and boots.

didn't plan on keeping them anyway

Never unwise to be prepared. I keep a few extras of different things in my office just in case I need them. A clean change of clothes is always a good idea. There are plenty of EDC (everyday carry) videos on youtube for things people carry.

Maybe measureman you could make an OGB video! I'm not kidding BTW.

It is always good to carry an emergency contact info in your wallet, and pertinent medical information in case of an emergency. Self-defense is always important too. Basic medical supplies, food , water, blankets, batteries, firestarter, etc. Oh, and a condom, maybe not so in the OGB carry unless it is accompanied by Viagra!

Not now but I used to carry an old guy bag with me the last few years of my dads life anytime we went somewhere in the car. We only needed it a few times but we were sure glad to have it when we did! I ended up doing the same with my mother before she passed too

I carry this old guy bag in the trunk of my car. One never knows if and when you might need to move a body. It even has strap handles.

Good add in or scissors. Wet wipes are good too. For me the best thing to have "in the bag" later on as dad and then mom started needing more help and I needed help with them was a private hire CNA to go with us on appointments

I've been meaning to put a "Go Bag" together for years, I still haven't.
Just like you said, Socks, Shorts, T-shirt, Chinos or Jeans, maybe some Kicks (sneakers).
The idea came about early 70's, as an emergency satchel, in case of fire, hurricane or flood.
You would leave it at the door and grab it on your way out of the house in an extreme condition.

Now everybody's got a Bugaboo or Go Bag handy just to get lost for a day or two.
Was a good idea then and today even more so.

The internet Wikipedia refers to it as a "BoB" Bug out Bag - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bug-out-bag

I hate to think that my life may come to the point where crapping my pants is an event I not only envision, but actually plan for...

If you like having stuff in your car to prepare you for likely scenarios I suggest the following in no particular order:
1. An actual spare tire and tools(not the nonsense patching and inflating equipment, unless they're there in addition to the tire)
2. An emergency window breaking device with seatbelt cutter on
3. A fire extinguisher, maybe even two
4. A powerful flashlight
5. Some gasoline in a solid container
6. Motor oil.
7. A warm blanket
8. Clothes appropriate for the climate in the area (i.e. a jacket and wool cap for winter and gloves for working outside)
9. First aid kit, with lots of added, more advanced stuff than what usually comes with it, and if needed training in how to use it.
10. At least a big jug of water. I also have a couple of army rations.

You'll be amazed at how many people do not have ANY of this stuff.

BTW at one time or other, I've used all the items listed above, mostly helping other motorists, except the MRE's. I've never smashed out a window, but I have cut a seatbelt. I've put out two fires in other people's cars. This lead to me keeping two extiguishers instead of one, the ones for car use are a bit small, but I can't fit a full size one.

instead of one, the ones for car use are a bit small, but I can't fit a full size one.

Years back I was passing a stopped car on a high bridge. I noticed he had the hood
up and it looked like a fire. I stopped much ahead of him and took the fire
extinguisher from the trunk and walked back.

The fire was coming from around the carburetor. I asked him if he wanted me to put it
out. Yes. So I did.

I used my company radio to relay a call to the police and was on my way.

Today I have a bag in the car containing overalls, warm coat, and a blanket.
