Hello everybody. My name is Gareth, and I am new to this forum.

I am trying to fine tune my 72 hour survival kit / bag.

Any tips?

There are lots of ideas, discussions and just plain good thinking around here. We also get a lot of fun out of taking part. Don't forget to use the "Search" box when you are thinking about things as it will help you did through the large archive of information here.

As for fine tuning - for me that's become an ongoing thing. I retired the end of July and am "evolving" my bag into a different type of content as I'm usually around home and getting there will be much easier now. I'm exploring the idea of a pre-configured coat with "stuff" in the zipped up pockets to go with a small bail out bag as my current concept.

Hope that helps - Good luck!

Paul -

The section, 72 Hour Kit, accessed from the main page, has some excellent pointers. Occasionally there is a lively discussion on this forum.

And there are lots of direction to take this subject. Circumstances vary considerably

Glad to have you here, GarethDuncan!

If youd like, start a new thread in The Survival Forum section asking for suggestions, including an inventory and the sorts of issues you reasonably expect you may face. The things Im planning for (tornados, snow storms, flooding, with low risk of earthquake and wildfires) might be different from yours.

Welcome! A brief idea of your 'training', background or knowledge would help. Lots of resources here.
