I have a read a lot of threads, which seem to be pointing at some sort of Doomsday Scenario, that being, that we are going to be hit with some type of
major disater, which will leave the once plush and vibrant terrain, into a barren wasteland.
I have seen this type of comment when people talk about Weather, 2012, Planet X, NWO, Alien Invasion, The war on terrorism, State Police, and a
plethora of others, and each time, people discuss surviving without the government, FEMSA, Global Aid Agencies, or any other support.
It seems to boil down to ..."the proverbial has hit the fan, RUN FOR THE HILLS!!!!!!!!!!"... A tad dramatic I know, but it seems that we should be
preparing for any inevitable and cataclysmic disaster.
Well, it seems to me, prudent to investigate what exactly a survival kit should consist of.
I mean I can't go running to the nearest Army Surplus Store and buy all products in the hope that one or two might come in handy, nor could I carry
all the heavy equipment if I did need to 'run'!
So what would be the correct size for a survival kit, and what would you consider to be key essentials?
This may seem obvious to some, but I bet we will see many different points, and recommendations of what to put in to the modern day survival kit, what
I would like to do, is to have a survival kit that would be light, yet packed with essential items, or several of these kits, with different contents
for each person carrying it - a distribution of weights if you will.
I have seen lots of contributors who could lend their experience camping, or in the army, or just reading up on it.
Also, as part of survival measures, should I be looking for a cave, should it be stocked up? if, with what? Will my mobile phone work if there is EMP
interference what other communicatiosn could be used? Should twinkies be included in the foodstuff? Does my kit depend on the terrain, or can it 'all
I hope you could throw some ideas into this survival 'kit bag' and see what we end up with...
Many Thanks for your input.
