The 7 Best First Aid Kits For Any Situation DIY Kit Price varies An easy way to think about the necessary contents of a first-aid kit is to break it up into two categories: it should have bandages and it should have medicine. For a bare-bones kit, Wedmore recommends plenty of gauze, including at least one roll of Kerlix bandages and some non-adhesive gauze. A handful of butterfly bandages, different-size bandages and an ace bandage should be included as well. As far as medication goes, Tylenol or a generic equivalent, an anti-inflammatory such as aspirin, an antihistamine such as Benadryl and diarrhea medication would be sufficient for most short-term needs.

Notes From The Bunker The Apartment Prepper's Blog | Family Preparedness in an Apartment Setting by Bernie Carr Home Made MRE I have been looking for sometime for a direct replacement for the commercial MRE due to the high price, weight and limited choices in entrees. I first started back in 1983 with a then new vacuum sealing system. This was before retort pouches were widely available and the few that were had a limited variety. With all the new advances in packaging and the different choices now available, a homemade "MRE" style food pack can be made for a fraction of the cost of the commercial variety. Besides being expensive (I feel), MRE’s are fully constituted so they are heavy as well as bulky. Over time my criteria evolved and culminated in this current home made MRE. Contents: 1 packet hot chocolate 2 packets flavored instant oatmeal 2 packets instant cup of soup 1 packet cappuccino 1 packet spiced cider 1 package cheese n crackers 1 granola bar 1 package raisins 1 packet of tea 2 packets of beef bouillon 1 Oberto meat stick 1 book matches 3 pcs jolly rancher hard candy 1 vitamin pack

The Urban Survivalist Eddie's cheap, easy to build, turbo stove. I've burnt a lot of different fuels. Wood is excellent but almost any dry vegetable matter will work. I've also tried a number of plastics. HDPE and LDPE (recycle code 2 and 4) burn clean as you would expect. These burn clean in free air too but in the stove I didn't notice the “plastic” smell they usually give off. For most people, I see the stove more as an educational tool than a practical cooking device. For third world use the turbo stove would ideally use natural convection as the fan adds expense and requires a power source. In the modern world many people, myself included, have solid fuel (wood) stoves for space heating. My stove design is fairly well suited to cooking but if you were making a space heater, incinerator or metal furnace you would probably alter the design. I also haven't been able to get a reliable flame in the charcoal phase of the burn cycle. Breakthrough - Mach four works happily on 1.4 watts – see page two.
