So today I finally put together Mr. Fabulous's and my "72 Hour Kits". I have collected the items and the backpacks long ago and never seemed to get enough gumption to put them altogether. I do have to say that I now have a sense of peace about any upcoming emergency if we have to leave the house for a day or two (knock on wood and heaven forbid)... It is just smart to have the stuff ready. I got a list of what to bring from this site, and here is a list from the Red Cross .
PS Does it bother anyone else that the pack of paper towels is upside down in the photo?! I going to go fix that right now. (I'm so weird even I recognise the fact that I'm weird sometimes!!!)
