Here’s a version of a survival kit that includes freeze-dried food, not simply high calorie bars.
It supplies 1 person for 2 weeks or 2 people for 1 week and is packed in a rolling duffel. Contains: Tissues (6 pkgs), 4-in-1 dynamo flashlight, playing cards, waterproof matches, waste bags (2), 50 ft. nylon rope, note pad and pencil, mylar sleeping bags (2), work gloves, 36 piece bandage kit, water filtration bottle, stove w/16 fuel tablets, fork, knife and spoon, sierra cup, water purification tablets (20), duffle bag on wheels, water 8.5 oz (9), Swiss army knife, multi-function shovel, 5-in-1 survival whistle, emergency ponchos (2), hygiene kits (2), dust masks (2), hand warmers (2), tube tent, 1st aid kit, 12 hr bright stick, 30 hr emergency candle.
Meals include: Stroganoff, chili macaroni, creamy a la king and rice, pasta alfredo, creamy pasta and veg rotini, teriyaki and rice, creamy tomato basil soup, hearty tortilla soup, apple cinnamon cereal, brown sugar and maple cereal and crunchy granola.
In the Great Stuff section of this website, you’ll find a link to Mountain House, which also has a wide variety of excellent freeze dried foods. Remember these kits are for short-term emergencies. If there are more people in your family or you expect to be out of your home base for longer than a few days, you need to get serious about creating a kit that will keep you healthy and strong for at least month.
All survival kits should include cash, a copy of your insurance policies, home mortgage information, medical info and medicines, copies of birth certificates, your banking info and your credit card numbers. In case you have to really put your life back together, these items will go a long way toward making that a little easier.
