I may catch some flak for this, but I am seriosly considering adding a pint of crown royal to my get home bag. Not to drink (I dont do wiskey) but for barter. A lot of the farmers in the region are pretty hard core alcoholics. Most of them do not stock up on alcohol, so after a day or two, they are going to be drying out. Having seen the effects of alcoholizm growing up, I know that that one pint of good wiskey might buy me a ride home if they have a running vehicle, or a tank of fuel if thats what I need, or shelter for the night, or food, or just about anything for that mater. I know that its not nice to take advantage of someone when they are at thier weakest point, but if I am trying to get home to my family, they are going to need me and if that gets me home to them then it is worth it.
