... so I have been looking for advice but people think I am crazy.
Some of our friends thought we were crazy that we wanted to get completely out of debt and save up a bunch of money before we jumped into buying a house. Don't worry about what people think - people are idiots. I say give them a chance to understand the reasons why you're doing this, but, if they're so short-sighted or lacking in functional logic that they can't see the light then I'll just have to settle for feeling sorry for them. You're amongst a helpful group now. :thumb:

You are not crazy! You're wise to be prepared and have a type of grab and go pack. Always start with the basics for your 72 hour kit. 3 days food rations, 3 days water & a shelter will get you started. A great web site to purchase these items is They carry high calorie food bars 3 day supply as well as 3 days supply of water pouches and also orange 2 man tube tents that are cheap. Once you have these three items in your pack start adding more essential gear. Other suggestions are a good folding knife, multi tool, water purification tablets, water proof matches, signal mirror, small fishing kit, emergency blanket, 7 strand 550 paracord a reliable flashlight, small sewing kit, duct tape, one quart canteen, jacket and extra clothes. The list goes on, but pack what you think you can get by with.
I hope this helps you get started if you have not already done so.
