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.

Keep your survival backpack in the car or in a covered area where you park for easy accessibility. Designate a closet or a section of the garage or basement for general survival supplies pertaining to the house. Store beans, rice, grains and other storable emergency preparedness foods in sealed plastic 5 gallon containers. But I do carry other things but really not worth mentioning as it would be a very long list. Even if you don’t plan to leave your home, or are unable to do so, taking steps toward emergency preparedness could save your life. I use to think having a 72 hour kit that included just food was the only emergency kit I needed. Anyways, figure out what emergency kits are most important and work on those first!I really do like how Boltwell made it simple and made a kit for each natural disaster or scenario. This is what happens when you make fun of your husband for having to wear a scout shirt each week.
