Is your vehicle or emergency kit packed with everything you would need? Are the Five Elements of Survival covered? In an emergency away from home, do you have a way to provide shelter? Do you keep water stored in your vehicle, along with some food that doesn’t need cooking? Have you thought about how you would protect yourself, your family and belongings? A handgun isn’t for everyone, and in some parts of the country could get you in real trouble (unfortunately), but do you at least have pepper spray or bear spray? Finally, do you have a way to stay warm if/when temperatures drop? All of these supplies can be kept in a large backpack, bin, or crate.
