Okay, before we start packing our ESKs I want you to make a couple of lists. The first list will be things you need to have. The second list will be things you would like to have. We will only be concerned with the second list if you have room to pack it and the strength to carry it. Now I want you to think of things you will truly need in order to survive such as: medications you are dependent upon, first-aid supplies, food, water purification items, and clothing. When making your lists itemize. Do not overlook the smallest item. This is all about attention to detail, folks. Do the same thing with the second list. Over the next few days I will share items I pack. You may or may not want to pack likewise.
