It is supposed to sustain the two of us for 3-5 days with food, water, shelter, warmth, first aid and living comforts. Since we don't go camping, we are starting from scratch. We own none of the standard issue items that most Pacific North Westerners have for recreational use or, in our case, living off the grid among the elements in the backyard. But Ken has remedied this gross oversight and among other things, we now have sleeping bags, a tent, iodine pills and---laxative?
With Ken being in charge of buying all the items, I have no idea what's in the bins. It's like Christmas when I look through them.
But we are now thoroughly stocked. We are prepared! Especially with: Canned corned beef. (I don't even eat that when we're not having a disaster.) Steven Seagal in a ninja mask. And Lactaid, though I don't know how much dairy one consumes when a disaster strikes but still, it's very thoughtful of my dairy-intolerance. All kidding aside, it's very comforting to know that we have this. Next we'll be devising our Disaster Plan (bottom of THIS link), which is all about what actions to take when something happens. Do you have a disaster kit & plan?
