I carry a CB radio, cell phone, fire extinguisher, engine oil, gear oil, atf fluid, and a pre-mixed jug of 50/50 water/coolant.
(I also keep some other goodies around such as extra tools and a full size spare along with an air compressor and tire patch kit. I also keep a first aid kit, LED flashlight, a blanket, and some old towels that I originally stuck under the spare tire to muffle noise. )
I prepare to be stranded whenever I leave the house, or try to. I've taken to carrying my bicycle when possible.
One thing you can tell your wife is to watch the temp gauge and to turn on the heater and pull over as soon as possible if the needle jumps above the normal range. Quick thinking could save the inside of the engine.
