I would suggest, a couple of gallons of drinking water and three pounds of vacuum packed trail mix. <-- Not for snacking, for emergencies. The suggestion is for two people. If you have four people double it, six triple it...

I'd say you're over prepared... If the car really has something serious happen to it, you won't be fixing it at the side of the interstate!

I would think that if you actually need all of that stuff to take your car on a trip you should get a rental.

I keep a 10 and 12 wrench
Channel Locks.
The correct allen wrenches that are required on my Battery terminals.
A pair of gloves,

you never know what will happen in between savanah ga and bartsow ca and everything that we are going to have is what we have in our cars everything else is going to be in a truck somewere in between. and i'm not saying major repairs i'm just saying if anything little comes up that i could posibly fix in a hotel parking lot till i can get the facility to get it fixed right.
