You need to make these 5 gallon bucket emergency kits… Simple and cheap to make and more valuable than you would ever imagine. I have 3, one in my car one in my basement and one at my bug out location.
When I first saw this I said to myself “huh, why would I need to do this if I have a bug out bag” then I read the article and now I will be making a few of these. Not only are the buckets cheap to buy, sometimes even free from restaurants, these are water proof and can be painted so you could use them as caches.
I would make these kits to go in both of my vehicles and for family members who may be around if SHTF. The article shows you how to pack it and what you may want to place in it.
