Debbie and I put in over 5,000 miles on the road each year, either in our truck or on our Harley’s. In some years, we exceed 10,000 miles. That’s a lot of potential exposure to the unexpected and the unknown. As I write to you, we are on the road for what will be a multi-thousand mile run, this trip with our beefed up Navy SEAL survival kits and Henry Survival rifle stowed safely away. Posted here is our link to the Navy Seals Survival Kit. I simply clicked on, cycled over to Amazon and ran down the great list, buying most items in duplicate for our packs. I than added a number of magazines for both the Henry and another rifle that I keep at hand at home. No guns or ammo are in the bags. Guns and ammo are stored separately, whether at home or on the road. DO NOT travel without the book Firearms Laws of the Fifty States. Know each state’s rules prior to crossing state boundaries.
Debbie and I hold Florida concealed weapons permits and have taken the pre-requisite NRA handgun course from our local firearms dealer. It was a first rate course. I completed my assembly mission with a shopping trip to our great local hardware/maritime store, Strunck Hardware. I went through the aisles picking out any items (again in duplicate) that I felt would be complimentary to our Navy SEALs survival kit. The more I saw, the more I added to my cart. In the end, I had accumulated quite a haul. Be sure your kit has adequate first-aid items. Finally I clicked to Cabela’s to check on what Cabela’s had to offer for traveling bags to pack everything in a lightweight, easy-to-handle fashion. Bingo, some great bags on sale. Mission complete.
In coming days I will provide you with a follow up post on some of the more unique items I have stored in our survival road kits. There is zero risk in being 110% prepared and lots of potentially lifesaving upside benefits.
