How fun is this???
How would you actually do if you had to head to the hills with your emergency kit? A group of Utah preppers is going to find out this spring with a 72 Hour KitCamp. The basic plan is to meet at a designated parking place, hike to the first night's location and set up camp. Next day, hike to another location and set up camp again. Trick is you can only bring your 72 hour kit--nothing else!
They are also planning on having some workshops and learn/teach a few skills and will have extras of the necessities so nobody dies.
This sounds like way too much fun to me. My kit is pretty well put together, but this has gotten me thinking if I were to take my family, how would we do? I would love to find out, after all, by practice we acquire the skills we need and quickly find the weak areas we need to work on. My only concern right now is the cost of restocking my emergency kit after the trip (we're kind of in a money crunch--like usual). Oh yeah, and my husband getting the time off work to be able to go with. Oh and having some type of shelter for all of us--really do I want to sleep in my space blanket? My kids are pretty good hikers, but could we actually pack all that stuff? And what if it rained??? What would your concerns be? Or are you ready to sign up? :)
