    Who has them, and what do you have in them?

    I have a basic small one. 3 months worth of food(MRE style mostly) 5 z-packs and 5 courses of Amoxicillin. First aid kit and clean water tabs and hand held filtration pump. Guns and Ammo of course. I always keep 7 cases of water on hand at all times. I have flashlights and batteries a compass some matches and a flint fire starter as well. Thats really about it.

    I generally have 5 five-gallon Sparkletts Jugs (the delivery kind) on hand. Some basic first aid. Need to expand what I have.

    Need to buy an extra bag of Dog Food, and cycle that through. Should try to get all my prescriptions on a 90 day supply.
    Just stocked up on TP. Won't let that get to the last package anymore :)

    I picked them up when I was in Hong Kong and brought them back... I almost bought more when I was just in Portugal two weeks ago but decided it was overkill..

    In addition to my camping gear (which I consider to be a part of it):

    1. Food: mixture of extra every day food supported by long term bulk storage. I’m now at 2 months for 6 people.

    2. Water: I keep 3 cases on hand and some gallon jugs. I also have to contraptions, called water bobs, that go in a bathtub and can be filled up, so that I have a surge capacity of north of a 100 gallons. I really need to improve this.

    3. Fuel: Extra propane tank for my grill and my jetboil.

    4. Odds and ends: FAK, hand crank radio, extra batteries and flashlights, head lamps, stuff like that.

    I did pick up extra alcohol based hand sanitizer, bleach, TP, and PT just to be on the safe side today.

    Broad brushstrokes. Otherwise it would be impermissibly long.

    Does your house ever get mistaken for a Costco?

    It's not really that impressive (size-wise) because they're Dude Wipes. :)

    Is there anything worse in life to looking over and realizing there is no toilet paper at the worst possible moment?
