This is going to be an ongoing topic. I want to explore options for people to get themselves to a level of preparedness while paying for as much of everything else as possible. With larger and larger chunks of our checks going to the oil companies we still need to figure out a way to stock up on things and get our kits together.
When you visit gear-related forums you’ll find cliques dedicated to certain product-lines. If you have “disposable” income then you get the $100 multitool or backpack, if not then you have to do a lot more homework.
Preppers and Tools
Our goal is to get a set of tools that will probably be distributed amongst several kits. We’ll want to find a middle between affordability and quality. Places like pawn shops and thrift stores and buying from individuals off Craig’s List can help with both of those.
