Task 16: 3 Days Without

images (31)How many of you have ever tasted the foods in your emergency kit?  Have you tested cooking a meal without that electric can opener or the electric range?  The Microwave?  For a good portion of those taking this challenge, we have already created our emergency kits, but I am guessing very few of us have ever had to “survive” off of our emergency kit. That is until now…  We do not want the first time you need your emergency gear, to be the first time you’ve ever used it!!   Last year OPB in Portland, OR actually asked a few couples to take that challenge.  Some of what they learned can be found in this article.  Today’s challenge will take some extra effort, and days to complete.  Because of that, we are also awarding extra points for this challenge!!


25 Pts – Take the 3 day challenge for yourself and your family.   Record your findings throughout the three days and share that small video or blog posting as your challenge answer.

Bonus:  Share 4 lessons or things you learned about your emergency kit during the three days!
