Post-collapse, one reality is that there will be a ton of abandoned vehicles due to the severity of an earthquake, hurricane, EMP, or another SHTF event.
Abandoned vehicles can provide a lot of survival materials, tools, and more that people can use to their advantage. However, before taking all that you can from a car that’s no longer being used, it’s important to make sure it actually has been abandoned. Never take things from a car unless you’ve established that it has been left and no one is coming back for it.
After you have confirmed that the car is abandoned there is an endless amount of supplies you can re-purpose for survival use.
Some of these items may include mirrors, hoses, ropes, shoes, bags, and whatever else the people left behind. Use these supplies to your advantage and add them to your survival stash because either now or in the future these items will come in handy.
