Build your own Wal-Mart Survival Kit

First off let me tell everyone that reads this that I am not one of those nuts that think the world is coming to an end next week but you never know what might happen. I bet the Romans never thought that their way of life would come to a screeching halt either or if you want to look at more recent times some of the victims of hurricane Katrina were left to fend from themselves for weeks without any help in sight. With a little prior planning and preparation you should be able to prepare for just about any type of situation manmade or otherwise with a few basic tools to keep you alive for an extended period of time while off the grid.

All living creatures need three basic things to survive food, water, and shelter. Humans of course have one thing that sets them apart which is fire; this kit will provide the basics to procure them all.
