Don't forget the 72 hour kit...

Shared by a wife of a military man in northern Japan:

* Have a typed or written list of phone numbers of family and friends back in the states.   Good point.  Never a good idea to have to rely on your electronics for critical information in an emergency.   Would be a good thing to laminate and stick in your 72 hour kit.  (I'd also like to type up a list of what is IN our kits, laminate it, and put that in there too.  So I would know what we do and don't have, and where to look for things.)

* Note to self:  Add Uno, Skipbo, and Phase 10 to 72 hour kits.  And coloring books and crayons.  Okay, so maybe we should have a whole back pack dedicated to battery/electricity-free kid entertainment.  With some chocolate in there for Mom the kids too.

Remember we need to keep our sanity, our sense of humor and some degree of normalcy, even in an emergency.

  1. Oh, that is smart to make one for everyone in the family. Duh! I wonder why I hadn't thought of that.
