A roll of toilet paper, hand warmers, can opener, whistle, a sheet of foil, a solar blanket, rain poncho, flashlight, glo sticks, first aid kit, hand wipes, a dust mask, a plastic cup and silverware, matches, heavy duty garbage bag as well as some money (don’t even think about spending this kids!!) and personal hygiene products such as a toothbrush, toothpaste, hand santizer etc. We have our emergency kit in the garage and this was a good reminder to refresh it and add some of the suggestions. My concern with a survival kit in the car is that, in the summer the heat will destroy the food and water. My sister-in-law and I had been talking for weeks about how we needed to update or 72-hour emergency kits.


I am going to update my 72-hour kit this week and I noticed that in all the pictures of the Japan earthquake that dust masks were used by most so I went out and bought masks thinking they would be great in many situations that you would use your 72-hour kit. Because if you unexpectedly have to evacuate or get away for any reason, or if you are unable to return home, your 72-hour emergency kit will provide you with the essentials that you might need to survive for up to 3 days. And although the kits might not be perfect- something is better than nothing- and my kids won’t go hungry. We have way more than one roll of toliet paper but then I realized you have individual kits and we packed ours for all six of us–everyone should have their own roll!


In fact, many who do have such a kit will often readjust it from time to time for the season or changing circumstances.
In my Scout Bag (actually two bags) I carry most of what is on the list but I also have some other survival items that I myself find most useful these are: A heavy blanket, a tarp for emergency shelter, saw saw for cutting wood, three different ways to make fire, flares, emergency road signs, a can of gas (one gallon), tools for mechanical, one pistol with a box of shells and a survival 22 rifle that stores inside the stock and a box of shells, one of my compound bows and arrows, a peculator to heat water and a Army style cooking pan that has a food tray on top ( I can cook with this also), emergency radio, head lamp and regular flashlight, Army Style Jungle Hammock, medical kit, a emergency fishing kit, a pay for minutes phone as a backup, some carpentry tools like a chisel and small hammer, nails, heavy garbage bags, a pint of pure grain alcohol, dietary supplements that gives me everything my body needs for one day as well as herbal, and last but not least my CB Radio.
