"New" Preppers

Postby UnderDude » Wed Jun 03, 2015 1:00 am

I was surfing around the web looking at pre-made kits for sale and WOW! The prices I've seen blew me away....
For the following items one kit sells for over $180!
Survival knife with magnesium fire starter
Mylar blanket
Plastic water bottle with filter
One bottle of purification tabs
3 chemical "body" warmers
LED flashlight
Hand crank radio

No wonder so few people actually prepare.
If possible, list similar items of your own kit and how much you actually paid for them.....

My knife was 60, and came with a magnesium starter for free. Pair of nalgene water bottles were like 8 each. Mylar blankets were like 2 each. You can get a pack of 50 glove\boot warmers for like 15 or 20 bucks.

What are the odds that knife has a hollow handle for 'storing essentials'?
Never hit first. Always hit back.

The only thing worse than a zombie trying to eat you, is a zombie trying to eat you while it is on fire.
