I know I'm a bit late getting onto this bandwagon, but I've just started to put together my personal 72 hour kit. This has led Mr. Frisby to take stock of his kit which was assembled 4 years ago. With the process of filling mine and refilling his, we've purchased many "snacky" type foods that are good for emergency situations. We've also needed to pick up a few other items to complete our kit of essentials. We just need to get a few more things to make them "emergency ready".
And with everything we've been putting in our kits, I find myself secretly hoping for an opportunity to use it. Maybe I should just be content with the prospect of switching the food out in a year.
