Be prepared. Every traveller should have..... Kit ideas No.#9
"The better prepared you are, the more enjoyable your trip."
Every traveller should have a small First Aid Kit and a small Sewing kit.
That said, I've meet many young guys who can't sew a simple button on a shirt.
No picture of a sewing kit with a small pair of scissors.
WHY? They get confiscated at most airports by airport security.
(Airports around the world have 'tons' of confiscated scissors /Swiss Army knives.)
NB: Check what you are allowed to carry on you, in your carry-on bag and
in your check-in bag when flying.
It's important to have your own small First Aid kit.
Tip:- Don't buy a first aid kit. Make one-up one your own.
-Every car owner should have jumper cables and a strong tow rope in their car.
Most people don't.
I respect the 'Preppers and Survivalists', laugh at them if you will, but they are
organised and have half a plan, which is more than most of us can say.
How many of us have a 'Bug out bag' or a '72hr emergency kit' in your home?
This is the ONE bag you grab when there is a fire/emergency etc.
International Red Cross, Fact 2013: - In disaster situations world wide,
it takes an ave of 72 hours before a rescue team can get to you.
Check-out sites like 'Bug out' and 'SHTF.'
