I have an inexpensive box that I keep ready as my 3 Day Survival Kit. I keep 2 gallons of water per person beside it, for us that is 12 gallons.
- Water and/or an individual water filter like a LifeStraw—we have a creek that borders the property.
- Two flashlights, with batteries beside them (no potential for corrosion and there for failure when needed). One headlamp for chores—my job.
- Waterproof matches and lighters.
- Four good quality Mylar emergency blankets. These are tough and reusable! You can sleep in your own bed with one on top and one on the bottom.
- Single serving bags of coffee, tea, propel zero and Mio to add to water.
- Three days of canned food, so I don’t have to cook, just warm up and serve—even if warming is with a candle, grill, or on our Deadwood Stoves!
- A good quality manual can opener.
- Paper plates, cups and utensils.
- Garbage bags for personal sanitation and more!
- Baby Wipes for personal sanitation and cleanliness.
- A bottle of hand sanitizer.
- Two rolls of TP.
- A roll of paper towels.
- A roll of heavy duty aluminum foil, mostly for cooking.
- Candles, for light and heat, and because they are always handy!
- Hard peppermint candy and hard chocolate candies.
- Two deck of cards!
- Two emergency radios, because one just never seems to work! #3 is the car radio!
- A survival whistle. Need to signal anyone? Low tech; high impact!
- Pepper spray! Yes! Inexpensive, simple and effective!
Good reminder to check our BOBs, Bev – thanks! Also, I checked out the website; I especially like the area, “Pranks & Revenge”!!! ;)
#19 Whistle…yep, wifey carries one in her purse/shoulder backpack and also has a compass.
