An affordable kit to protect and power small electronics in the case of an EMP. For more information and building instructions check out the blog post Making and testing a trash can Faraday cage.
Aiming to be a Level 3, lightweight (~40 lbs), and include more food than listed in The Prepared recommendations since it must be Gluten Free (GF). It is also a single year-round version as the weather is variable 3 season (a few 110F days and a very few below 35F nights). Cost was less of a constraint and much of the items are leftovers from backpacking 'upgrades'. Prices listed are for replacement value. I am frankly shocked at the total. Some were purchased in the last year and a half after I discovered this site, while most were accumulated over a much longer period with coupons and sales or even used from Ebay. The bag is pretty stuffed except for the top pocket that was left empty in anticipation of the still missing protection category items. I plan to get hip belt pockets and move some items there to free up space. This exercise also helped me cull it down a bit and better organize for jettisoning if I have to carry it any significant distance.
After a house fire, bad accident, or other big event - can you get your digital life back? This is a small kit that can be stored at a trusted, off-site location. Use it to regain access to your digital accounts and assets, especially if you have to start from scratch. Make one and store at a relative's or friend's house. Perhaps swap with them and store theirs.
