One of the things about making these instructables is that they make you think more about the things you've made. Since originally publishing this one...
This is an emergency survival kit that I originally put together to keep in my wife's car. She travels a great deal for her job and particularly a lot during the winter months. This kit is designed to help 2 people to survive if stranded during cold weather. However, most of the components are multipurpose and are useful in any season or geographic area. Since the first kit was constructed, I have replicated it and keep one in all of our vehicles. It would make a great base kit if it becomes necessary to quickly evacuate your home in a disaster situation.
Step 1: A lot of Gear in a Small Pack
All of the gear on the table is kept in the pack with a little room to spare for additional items if required. This kit is organized in purpose groups and includes tools, survival aids, utensils, sheltering items, sanitation supplies, first aid supplies, food, and water.
