@MikeB4 that's good stuff but really not much water. 30L per person per day is recommended, 2L per person per day is essentials only. Link.

 

 

30l per day? I know plenty of British who wouldn't use that much in a month....

Wine. I have a bunch of bottles tagged as the "End of the World" wines.

The first one is a fine aged Bordeaux, and the last one is an old wine bottle refilled with isopropyl alcohol with a label made of masking tape and Sharpie that says "Drink Last".

@timmmay I should have mentioned the 50 litres of water is just our emergency drinking water only. We have an additional 1,200 litres of water that can be used for other purposes.

It's not my recommendation. Follow the link for details.

Most people users dozens to low hundreds of liters of water per day.

what are peoples plans if you cant get back to your house and get your emergency kits.

 

 

I keep a backpack in the car at all times with tins, water and other emergency survival type stuff that I hope would allow me to get to home base again if I had to walk. It's essentially a mini version of the larger kits others have already discussed.

I kind of loosely practice bushcraft which is using the study of nature to live off nature, so just have a belt kit.  Urban bushcraft though I think requires a different set of skills but using similar theory.

 

In terms of emergency stuff, in my day pack I carry a trauma kit, 1 micron water filter, bivvy, poncho and a bit of string. In the overnight pack I carry cooking stuff on top, some layers and a more complex sleep system.  In the tramping pack, more food, some tools and a tarp.  I also have a carbon fishing rod and pouch holding fly/spinning/float and sea fishing kit which attaches to my bag with my trekking poles.

 

I am still working on my winter kit.

PhantomNVD: 8m bus converted into a Motorhome, stuffed with cans, dry good and a full change of bedding clothes etc. two gas bottles, califont, 370L water and two cassettes for the toilet. 2,400Wh off batteries and 1069W solar.
120L diesel and we “Good to go” 👍

*edit forgot the 20 chooks and 6 piglets worth of ‘live meat’ 😂😂😂


I kept expecting to read "..and a Browning 30 caliber machine gun mounted on the roof...." at the end of that post.

Nope Cal .50 BMG in a Barrett is better suited for that purpose - to stop that 8m Motorhome.😄
