With the latest terrible events playing out in Japan and other places, many of us are thinking about basic survival needs. My daughter-in-law is storing water. Neighbors are rotating food packs. I’ll be dragging out my-kit-is-bigger-than-your-kit to sort through it with the intent of removing some weight.
I have considered the things I do everyday, and eliminated the activities I could survive without. The camp stove, tourniquets and dry socks are now unnecessary. I include on my new list only those things that are essential to sustain life. Here it is:
- Water purifier / cup
- Trail mix
- Portable solar panels
OK, I confess, I added a couple of items. I call it the deluxe version. It now includes:
- Swiss army knife
- Duct tape (These two are because I’m a believer in MacGyverisms)
- 2 band aids
What’s in your kit?
