By most estimates, the majority of the population is utterly unprepared for even a small-scale crisis. This is painfully obvious every time there’s the threat of a natural or man-made disaster. Once the last-minute panic starts, it only takes a few short hours before the shelves of many local grocers, convenience stores and even the big box retailers are completely stripped of all emergency supplies. First to disappear are the basics – shelf-stable foods, bottled water, flashlights, batteries, etc. Gas stations fare no better, as panicked motorist wait on long lines desperately trying to fill their tanks. Likewise, if you are expecting to walk up to an ATM to withdraw some cash, you’re in for a shock. All this unnecessary craziness usually occurs at the last possible moment. The prepared, on the other hand, look at these spectacles in disbelief and amazement. Why? Because the prepared, have a plan, supplies and usually place a significant emphasis on learning many of the skills that may one day help keep them alive. But is that enough? If a crisis struck while you were away from home, or if you were somehow separated from your main supplies? What would you do? After so much careful planning and stockpiling, the unexpected loss of your primary source of supplies could put you at a major disadvantage. If only you had stored supplies/gear at alternate locations. Nothing crazy, just some basic items to give you a fighting chance.
