Two Essential Kits Most Preppers Overlook

How Many Prep Kits Are Enough?

Many of the posts and articles on preparedness and survival sites are focused on some sort of kit:

  • bug out,
  • ready-made,
  • seasonal,
  • car,
  • water module survival,
  • survival fire,
  • navigation,
  • medical,
  • food storage,
  • pocket survival (EDC) … You get the picture.

Kits are good topics because they usually take an important aspect of the Law of 3’s and identify the gear/items needed to extend that “3-something” survival time.

[Video] How To Build A Camp Intruder Alarm

Camp Perimeter Security

The two videos below detail how to build a firecracker trip wire camp security alarm. DIY trip wires are easy to assemble with just a few basic materials.

In the first video, How To Survive assembles the trip wire. In the second video, Survival Lilly builds a similar alarm … and then has a bit of fun.

Video 1: Trip Wire Assembly

Wooden matches, a firecracker, duct tape, a striker strip and twine are all that’s needed. The assembly is straightforward: two wood matches aligned with the firecracker fuse with the striker strip from a match box as the igniter.

Watch the video below for actual assembly details.



The video on the next page shows Survival Lilly building a similar alarm at her bug out camp. She’s having more fun with the whole thing.

[Video] Seek Vs Therm-App Infrared Imaging Devices

You Get What You Pay For

The Canadian Prepper on Chris’ PREPAREDMIND101 YouTube channel compares two thermal imaging devices: The Seek ($250-$350) and the Therm-App ($950-$2,000).

Both attach to an Android smartphone, but the Seek is also compatible with the iPhone.

I consider these imagers to be gear “top-off” items. In other words, you already own almost everything else needed for a complete survival kit before you consider an investment in these units.

That being said, infrared imaging devices add a nifty addition to home and camp security: you can “see” in the dark.
