Survival Prep

An InstaPundit article about being prepared and a follow-up.

My key takeaways... I'm sure there are better lists, but there were good reminders about meds, pets, and diapers.

Food: canned goods, beef jerky, water, pet food
Tools: flashlight, battery-powered or hand crank radio, duct tape, garbage bags, can opener, multi-tool, pocket knife
Shelter: blankets, tarps
Clothing: diapers
Medicine: medication, first aid kit
Money: Cash

Neat tricks:
Write the contents of cans on the lids in case you lose the label, also write purchase date
Re-use 2 liter bottles for water storage - placing them in the sun will allow the heat to kill any nasty organisms in the water
Keep an extra propane tank for your grill
