We've discussed first aid. We've discussed tools. Now let's pull it all together. The following are the categories I'm thinking about:

  • First aid (we discussed this in another thread).
  • Basic hand tools
  • Box cutter and replacement blades
  • Two flashlights (you can have my D-Cell MAG-LITE when you pry it out of my cold, dead hands).
  • Extra batteries for the flashlights
  • Clothes appropriate for the situation (I don't think we need a lengthy discussion on this).
  • Prescription and OTC medications
  • Lip balm
  • Kleenex
  • Other personal care items including nail care (I don't think we need a lengthy discussion on this either).
  • Water
  • Edibles such as cracker sandwiches and nutritional supplements
  • My sanity
  • Bible
  • Important papers such as I.D. and insurance information

I'm probably overlooking something. What I want to discuss are what I'm not considering.

Note: I've already read "Listening To Katrenia."
