To start, ask yourself...Is my current fitness program enabling me to be better at the things that I want to do in life? Or if you are in a job that demands a high level of fitness like a LEO or 1st Responder, is your current program helping you to do your job better & safer? If the answer is no or you really are not sure keep reading!
There are all different types of fitness programs out there, and each one has been designed to progress you towards some specific goal like weight loss or muscle gain. Unfortunately most of these programs lack functionality. What do I mean by that?
So you are considering building your own survival kit? Well that is great, you are taking an important step towards protecting yourself and your family in the event of an emergency. There are a lot of things to consider when building a survival kit so where do you start?
First determine what the purpose of the kit is, specifying this alone will make the process much easier. Do you need a small kit to put in your pocket while backpacking? Or a car survival kit in case you get stuck somewhere in the winter? Is this kit for wilderness or urban survival?
Then you must determine how many people will this survival kit support & for what duration of time? Answering this will help you determine the quantity of items needed, which can help you determine the right size bag or pouch.
After you determine the purpose, # of people to support, survival duration, and general size of the kit it is time to dive into the fun part. What are you going to put inside?
