I have an omega r&d kill switch car alarm installed by a dealer w key fod and 2 thieves used a shaved key and got past the alarm but i have the club too! Y didnt it go off?
On a week-long hike, i learned the hard way not to sleep in my clothes. We were instructed to sleep naked, or in underwear, and to use the clothes to line the sleeping bag, rather than to wear. i did not listen, and the first night out, i woke up at 4am, freezing and sweating at the same time. Your clothes will make you over heat, whoch in turn makes you sweaty and wet, which than freezes. Clothing also slows your body heat from filling the air inside the sleeping bag. You will get warmer, faster when naked.Another tip, youre body loses energy to heat up fluids that you drink. And naturally, you lose body heat when you urinate. You can recycle some of this lost heat by peeing into a bottle, and cuddling with it in your sleeping bag, just like the hot water bottle idea, listed above. And just like the author says, make sure the cap is on TIGHT. I would not recomend drinking the urine, however, if there is no water to drink, drinking your own urine can keep you alive for a few days longer than drinking nothing at all. This is what the experts have learned, climbing the highest peeks. This is more of a dire emergency tip, and most likely not needed for your everyday, backyard family-camping.
...A couple of additions...A spare pair of underwear (or two) for those occasions where you need condoms, or when you're stuck somewhere for a few days.A Bandanna, and/or compressed towels (Liteload and the like). Multiple uses. Alcohol or freshening wipes--got hygiene ?Otherwise, a Good list !
Should totally add in a threebie: Solar Panels, Batteries, Wire. So many uses; as Instructables shows us well. haha
Before I go to the sleeping bag I do a little run, short enough so I don´t get sweaty, but long enough to get some heat from muscular activity and then staight into the bag. Also remembre that the head is one of the parts, maybe de one which most looses heat...

I really like this idea of where you hid the switch as well as interrupting a starter wire. Its also worth pointing out that if anyone wants to do this on an automatic, you can use the switch to interrupt the wire from the Neutral Safety Switch and get the same results. I really like that you do not have to shut this off each time you leave the vehicle. Great Idea, really helped me!
