SURVIVAL AND SELF-SUFFICIENCY LINKS - Safe Rooms, Storm Shelters, Tornado Shelters, Oklahoma Safe Rooms, Oklahoma Storm Shelters, Oklahoma Tornado Shelters Preps: Evacuation Plan We're now half way through posting about the 12 Impacts you should plan for in your preps. As we've stated before, in our view, Emergency Preparedness needs to focus more on limiting negative impacts to disasters than on preparing for specific events (earthquake, hurricane, etc.). We discussed that philosophy and those Twelve Impacts in an earlier post. At this mid-point, we're going to take another detour, but a very closely related one. Today, we'll cover developing an Evacuation Plan In February, we did a post on Shelter-In-Place (SIP). Because the thought process and equipment needed for an evacuation are much more extensive and critical than it is for a SIP plan - you're leaving the majority of your "stuff" behind - we'll be breaking this into two posts. Today, we'll cover the Bug-Out-Bag (BOB) Contents and your Evacuation Checklist. As with SIP, your plan is based upon a simple, easy to use checklist. BOB Contents There is an almost religious fervor as to what should be included!

Buy Survival Foods by Mountain House | Long Term Food Storage | Buy Freeze Dried Food & Discount Survival Food DIY - Single Use Antibiotic Packs | Brian's Backpacking Blog The ongoing trend in the consumer market of providing small, ready-to-go, individual size packages of consumables has been a win-win for the lightweight and ultralight backpacking communities. Always looking to shave a few extra ounces or grams off of our overall pack weight, these individual servings are the perfect fit for trail snacks, drinks, condiments - you name it. However, these nicely packaged individual servings can come at a premium. They can often be pricy or difficult to find without going online and ordering in bulk +shipping. That's when the creative types among us come up with ingenious solutions that lets us make our own alternatives using things we usually have lying around. Which brings me to today's topic - individual size packages of antibiotic cream. We're going to make very small, single use packets of antibiotic ointment using a generic alternative to Neosporin and a clean (unused) drinking straw. I've yet to have one of these burst or fail on me.
