Alas, today portable battery chargers are affordable, and well worth the money whether you need to use it or not. I don't leave mine in the car. And, make sure it is turned off after you use it.
Read the Directions Carefully!
If your battery is under warranty, and needs a jump too often when the temperatures go below freezing, then you have to follow the directions to have it replaced. I understand that means a trip a garage to have it tested to see if the battery is holding a charge.
Until then, I sometimes go see the landscapes of New York State and Vermont. Here are a few photographs taken the other day from the Dead Creek Visitor's Area. I was sad there isn't more snow until I saw in the distance huge white mountains when going down the road just around the corner from Addison Four Corner's Store. Unless you pull over along Route 22A, its not a good idea to sight see while driving. For passengers, on Route 22A looking west, the view shows higher peaks in the farthest distance. The pictures here are taken below that route where the higher peaks aren't as visible. It's still overwhelming beautiful to see them. In the distance, the farthest away look like a cloud bank, but they are mountains.
