What would I need for this car emergency kit?

You can get them most places, like Target. It's just a road kit, usually has flares, battery cables in case you need to jump your car, a shovel, etc. Keep a blanket in your trunk too, just in case. Don't worry, you'll be fine.

It is going to take you longer than you think. 800 miles in 9 hours is not realistic. There is construction, slow semis blocking the lanes not to mention gas, bathroom and food stops.
