Survival kit, Never Leave Home Without It

Survival kit, Never Leave Home Without It or you might never return

home again

It may not guarantee your survival but it will better your odds

What you do with it that matters if you know how to affect your survival

Don’t let this situation effect your thinking, think positive since you

have the tools to survive

There is no embarrassment in admitting you are either in trouble or lost

I’ve been confused about my location several times, there’s no shame in admittance

The shame is being not surviving, being found by search and rescue one day after you’ve departed this world

Don’t be a number, be a story that lives on


Build two, practice with one, so you are ready if the time ever arrives
