you ever use a porta john at a local event in your area?? county fair, 4th.july picnic..etc?
if you did,remember the smell? now imagine, two, three members of your family using buckets as latrines for a day or two or more... you need a better way to get rid of human waste, believe me you will be making for an exit before the food runs out, if you don't.
Not a pleasant thought to bring to mind but one that needs attention.

That's what I'm thinking. That shelter needs some sort of ventilation system, preferably one that is filtered and requires no power. Also, needs a toilet.

I'm jealous too!! Only suggestion is to put the lanterns and other fragile items on the bottom shelf. If they fall, they dont break.

Oil lamps put out heat, so if its winter, might consider that. Ready to eat foods are good to have, and those are some nice shotties. OO and #8 are pretty limited. Get some slug for distances over 15 yds!!!

Maybe a few glow sticks.. They're cheap and can help save battery life.. Might be a little entertainment for younger kids at the same time..

Just an idea, but could your poor kitty litter in the bucket once your are done to help hold the smell..?

Look at your local feed store for Tiger and Lion Litter. It comes in a 55 gallon drum.

Nice setup!

Here are my suggestions


-side arm, something small & concealable that you wonít set down like you will a shotgun and it will happen!
- Tarps in several different sizes 6x9, 8x10, 10x14
- 70% alcohol hand sanitizer
-wet wipes (for hands, face, ) & baby wipes (the other areas) go without a shower for a week youíll thank me for this !
-2 changes of clothing for everyone and 5 of socks and underwear
-5 gal bucket & toilet seat
-pick ax
-ditch the metal wear and get paper and plastic bowels and utensils you donít have enough water to clean dishware even if you do in a situation it's not as sanitary!
-propane portable heater cooker quick heat/cooking source fast portable heat and /or cooking
