May is all about 72 hour kits – and more!

This month is all about 72 hour kits!  This is something we have all heard about, and you may have worked on it at one time, or may be starting from scratch.   Wherever you are in your 72 hour kit preparation, this information is for you!

The idea of 72 hour kits may be overwhelming, so I suggest you start with this video to get an idea of what your first reachable goal should be for your family.  Then check back here for all the links to the lists and kits I talk about, as well as other helpful information you will need as you go along.
