When trying to decide where to start with survival supplies, it might be best to remember the phrase “The people have spoken”. Over the years, we have found that some survival supplies are purchased again and again as people try and use our products. These are kits, food, and equipment that have proven themselves to be reliable and useful. These are all products that you can count on to deliver exactly what they promise and to help you survive emergencies and disasters much more easily.
Trouble on the road can be more than an inconvenience; it can actually be dangerous under certain conditions. If you have the Deluxe or Standard Warrior Car Kit stashed in the trunk or behind the front seat, you will have a much better chance of getting on the road again. The handy items in the kits include a folding shove, jumper cables, and tow rope. As these car kits do not contain any food or water, you might want to include an Economy Emergency Backpack Kit which contains both emergency food and water. These kits are available in models that will provide for 1 to 4 persons and also include solar blankets, first aid kit, and flashlight/radio.
Food can definitely become a serious problem during an extended emergency. Consider how long people were stranded in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. There are several approaches to survival food, and you might find that a combination of both will serve you best. Mayday Emergency Food Bars are probably a good choice for a short term problem or if storage space is limited. These bars are available in several sizes and will provide nutritional support when you need it. Mayday bars are also great for hiking or camping trips and have a shelf life of 5 years.
