So these questions have helped me to do some NEEDED preparation. I didn't rotate & update our 72 hour kits this past Conference..so I did it TODAY (wednesday).
Rotating for adults is almost not needed - I rotate some of the clothes items because here in Hawaii...they tend to get that SMELL!!
But rotating for KIDS is so needed - so doing it on conference is perfect. But I had a hard time deciding what to put into their bag...because I don't know if they can really CARRY the bag. I have one bag for Klai & Shae & one bag for Rykel & Wyatt.
Kids bags hold:
2 L water
2 changes of clothes/kid
small first aid kit w/toiletries
utensils / dishes
either 2 MRE's or 3 cans of food
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED? without making it too heavy
(remember: mom & dad bags hold all equipement needed, fuel & lighting, extra infant needs. And we have an extra bag for just FOOD - MRE's, canned food, etc)
So because some items were outdated/expired....we decided these food packs we would eat for dinner. PERFECT TIMING because I got all wrapped up in this 72 hour kit thing I haven't even thought about DINNER.
So we ate:
