The world in 2017 is a scary place. And the upcoming Olympics on the Korean peninsula are doing nothing but reminding me how always-on-the-brink-of-disaster we are as a human race.
And the threat of nuclear holocaust does nothing to alleviate regular acts of God, such as hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes and wildfires. These natural disasters are in the news everyday! You never know where they are going to hit next.
As such, it just makes sense always to be prepared for the worst. This is especially true when you have a family – that is, other human beings relying on you for protection. Constant preparedness is one of the reasons I maintain the mantra “you can never have too many knives.” It also makes me seriously consider getting this survival kit, which just so happens to be $135 off:
If I had four people in my life to take care of, instead of just one, this would be a no-brainer. It contains:
- 1 large premium backpack
- 24 Mountain House food servings
- 48 packets of Datrex water
- 1 Sawyer Squeeze
- 8 Cyalume SnapLights
- 2 LED lanterns
- 2 flashlights
- 1 fully stocked first aid kit
- 4 emergency blankets
- 2 bath wipes
- 1 portable stove
- 4 bowls and utensils
- 1 MoraKniv knife
- 1 Ferrocerium rod
- 4 InstaFire tinder
- 4 whistles
The contents of this kit are meant to help 4 people survive for 72 hours. If I just use it all for myself, does that mean I can survive 288 hours? If so, that seems pretty good.
