Keep Your 72 Kit Fresh
Nearly everything in your 72 hour kits will have a shelf life. Make sure that you check it periodically to be sure that certain items are not approaching the end of their useful life. Use or discard food and water that has nearly expired and replace it with fresher. It would also be a good idea to make seasonal adjustments to your kit to make it more responsive to changing climatic conditions. Extra water should be carried in the kit during hot weather, and make sure to add some warmer clothing to a kit that will be used during the winter. Be sure to tuck a pair or two of wool socks into the kit when traveling in winter – it is easy to get your feet wet during this season and having warm socks to change into can make a big difference.
