Yes, we all know that an end of world event could happen at any time. However I look at things statistically and realistically. I think I have a greater chance of getting into a car accident than getting hit with an asteroid or meteor. So I first focus on my little corner of the world. Even if there is a catastrophic event you still need to get to your "go" bag and/or vehicle with your G.O.O.D. bag and perhaps onward to your home or retreat depending on each situation. So what do you need for day to day survival? Because the world can come crashing around you and you alone. It may just be your end of the world event like an accident or illness. It may not be you but a close family member or dear friend. It may be a local isolated event like a flood or power outage or a fire – who knows? As a former boy scout, “always be prepared”.
While surfing the net, I have come across some sites talk about a list of 20 or 25 things you should always have with you – some ideas were good and some not so good and some not even considered. So I decided to come up with my own list. I generally have most of this with me at any given time – it drives my wife nuts. She always asks why I have so much schumer in my pants pockets and on my keys. As a city resident it this may be slightly urban oriented.
