Emergency Kits, Product testing, Recipe Challenge

Shifting Gears a little….

I’ve been evaluating where I want to take this blog and what I really want to accomplish with it.  Most of my recent posts have been in reviewing products, and while I do think that reviews can be helpful for people that are trying to make a decision on whether to purchase an item or not, I feel I need to be doing more.  My desire is to truly help people become self-sufficient, save money & be prepared for any event.

I will still continue with my review of products, but I will also begin posting more “how to’s and preparedness” type posts and videos on our new YouTube Channel.  Speaking of reviews, I called Shelf Reliance (SR) customer service last week, to check on my order for the remaining items to continue my “Recipe Challenge Project”.  SR is moving to a new facility, so shipping has been affected during the move and I wanted to be sure that my order from Oct 4th had not been “lost” in transition.  I was assured that it would be shipped out this week, so I hope to be back on track with the project before the end of the week.

In the meantime, I’ll be posting a project on preparing to “bug out”, complete with pics and video.  Also, if you get a chance, checkout http://survivalcache.com/urban-survival/ – Excellent article!

Be back tomorrow! Stay safe & ready,

Emergency Kits

We’re Back!

Hello all!  I know we have been MIA for a few months.  Life at the school (HCS) was VERY hectic over the summer months but we are getting back into a regular school year again, so we are back on the blog wagon!

I finished four, two week emergency kits over the summer & they turned out great.  Three of the kits contained the following:

Solar Kit: One Boulder 15 Solar Panel, One Escape 150 Rechargeable Power Pack w/built in Inverter

Solar Flashlight with hand crank, rechargeable battery, & AC Charger

Two weeks of Mountain House food pouches for three adults that included breakfast, lunch & dinner.

Adventure Medical First Aid Kit (these kits had the Adventure First Aid 2.0 Kit)

One ColdFire Tactical Fire Extinguisher

AMK Dental Medic (only available with complete kit)

“Sanitation/Anti-virus” Kits that included two face masks, two gloves, & hand sanitizer for two adults & two children

If you were to purchase these items separately, the cost would be $1364.00 (+ 8% tax).  We are offering this complete kit* for $1100.00 (+8% tax). That is a savings of $264.00!

If you are interested in creating your own kit, we can help you customize one and save you money!  *Kit prices can vary depending on the number of people in your household, whether you want 2 or 3 meals per day per person, and the type of solar kit you wish to purchase.  We hope to hear from you soon!
