    How do you prep potable liquids for cold weather?

    New forum member here, I live in a cold weather climate and I want to keep a small survival kit in my car in case I get stranded due to weather, sliding off the road, whatever. I was wondering if anyone has a solution for keeping liquids in a cold weather climate. I'm always worried about my water or gatorade or whatever freezing. Which it does if I leave a bottle in the car for a few hours.
    I can always keep dry goods and the like in my car and never have to worry about it, but I don't know what to do about potable liquids except take a few bottles with me wherever I go. Take them out when I get out, bring them inside, take them back out. It's annoying but is there any other option?

    I'm open to other ideas for other good stuff to keep in the car too. Keep in mind I'm only looking for a small kit to last 2-3 days max.

    I only use the 16 oz water bottles in the car during winter. They freeze without problems if kept top side up.
    If you are in a snow belt, you can alway get off the road (to eliminate road chemicals) melt snow and use a
    filter system.
    I really want one of these!Hidden Content

    I just let them freeze. If I need one I throw it on the dash on defrost, this obviously won't work if the truck breaks down but if you are just stuck usually the engine is still running.

    A metal camping cup would be useful as you could fill it with snow and put it over a can of sterno. I have the sterno but not the metal cup, I am going to have to get one.

    Let it freeze and make sure you have a way to build a fire to thaw it. Too cold is better than too hot.
