I have never understood the whole "horde" for a rainy day mentality. Even if you factor in some apocalyptic even like say Katrina, in most cases
your stash would be destroyed as well, along with your house, your yard, your electricity etc. Also even during a terrorist attack or
nuclear/biological attack, a survival kit would mean little if you cant protect yourself from the radiation/pathogen.
I really doubt that having an X amount of stuff stashed away will help people endure a truly calamitous even on their own. Not unless they have
something akin to Camp David in their back yard!
A stash is just temporary and just material that can be lost, contaminated, etc. I think a real survival kit is within oneself. Training your body and
your mind with the skills needed. Food, Ammunition etc can be bartered, bought, earned or stolen if you have the ability to do so.
