5: jump leads.
6: AAA membership
7: Regular oil change.
8: DON'T get in the habit of.....
9: Tell someone where you are going.

Good luck
And don't forget to take some candles and matches with you. You'd be surprised how much warmth a single candle can generate when you're stuck in the snow.

Ever owned one (a real jeep)? Mine drives like a dream. I get compliments all the time. Admittedly, if I could get a nice Defender for less than $20,000 I would drop it like a hot potato!

You are beginning to seem to me to be a complete masochist.

You drive a Jeep and you want to spend days at a time in the frozen mountains.

Do you drive rusty nails into your scrotum for relaxation too?
