Survive This! is an ongoing project exploring my own catstrophile complex with-in the context of resiliency. I have curated these functional emergency kit with over 40 recommended items researched by the Preparedness Division of ElkTEch. Chop Sticks? A utensils which double as kindling. Tin Foil? This can be used to direct heat from a fire, it can be formed into a bowl, or used to store food. Most items are common sense, multi-purpose, and affordable. This life-use product charts the aesthetics of survivalist gear on a bell curve defined by the opposite extremes of the Do-It-Yourself “woodsy isolationist” and the ultra militaristic sky-mall executive gadgets. The populist R.E.I day Kits make up the top curve. These Emergency Kits are for the rest of us.
The kits serve as a platform to discuss fears, ideas, practical tips, and resources in a climate of Code-Orange Level Alert Status. *Order by email “Household” (2-person) also available. *Survivalist Tupperware-style parties available for 5 friends or more. *Below is a free Ultimate checklist to start you out on your journey towards preparedness.
