In the spirit of never staying “static” in my survival mine set, here I go again tweaking my survival kits. For me it’s a way for life but for some this can be somewhat of a daunting or confusing task. I mean let’s face it; these days you’ve got: EDC’s, Bug out Bags, Get Home Bags, Backpacks, Car Kits, Lightweight, Ultra Lightweight, Micro Kits, The Kits that Les gave me Kits, Kits in some kind of Tin Kits, Caveman Kits, Ready-made Kits, Kits that cost a lot of money Kits and then -there’s the kit you build yourself. I like this kit because I know what’s in it and chances are I’ve probably used or practiced with the items in it before.

Have a Survival Kit. Why not? The only thing you have to loose is your life. Keep it on you if you can or at least in arms reach. Know what’s in it and how to use the stuff.
If you have kids, let them help you put the kit together and let them come up with some ideas for items like putting a family photo in the kit. Help them build the one for their adventures.
