Day 4: Camping at Home

Hey Everyone, Eric here, with todays 30 Days challenge.

Summer Vacations have changed quite a bit in the past year. Triple A noticed a huge uptick in road trips. The RV industry had a resurgence as families looked for alternative options for hotel rooms and Airbnb rentals. National Parks continue to be packed as everyone looks at alternative options for vacations.

For sometime, when I talk about preparedness, I ask people to think of it as “Camping in your back yard” Rethink what you may already have, and think about how those items can be used in a disaster or emergency rather than buying a bunch of items just for that odd chance something happens.

DAY 4 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts    For Your Day 4 Challenge, we want you think about camping in your backyard… or your living room if you live in an apartment. What items do you already have, that you think would be helpful in a disaster or emergency. Extra points if you take a picture or video with the items and explain their uses.

Level Up: 5 pts For Today’s level up, we want you choose one item from what you already have, and share with us… why this item is important to you and why you have it in your kit. (Extra Extra Bonus Points if you do this in a video.)
