Even if you're not an "end of the world" survivalist, it's a great idea to make yourself a couple survival kits for the house, car, boat, RV and even at work. (We don't get to pick where we are when an emergency happens.)

We're working on the "Ultimate Montana Survival Kit" list as I type, but we found this very simple and inexpensive kit online. For just twenty bucks or so, you can outfit yourself with the 5 Cs.
