Win a Preppers Survival Kit The Golden Adventures of a Very Dark Horse

Well, crazy timing! I have been in contact with the very friendly Andre of in regards to their handy survival kits, and he kindly offered to give one away to one of my lovely readers, just as an epic storm is due to hit our small pacific island... I don't know about the rest of you, but I have spent almost the entire day preparing for Cyclone Lusi. All outdoor items are stored and secured. Loaves of bread are being baked, containers filled with water, torch batteries replaced. I only hope I can locate the can opener before the inevitable power outage that will come (always does). The last remaining chore will be to fill our firewood basket, and then I think I am ready for whatever Lusi brings (except for fallen trees - please, please, please let no trees fall on our house or car...).
Anyway, one thing I have been thinking about a lot lately is whether or not our family is really prepared for an emergency. Several years ago (you know when), I did actually put together an emergency kit... or at least the beginnings of one. But you know, there are a lot of things you kinda really need, and it seems like maybe more effort than it's worth to go about collecting all those individual items. I didn't really get round to finishing it, and also, there was some kind of leakage and things rusted/grew mould, and basically it's time to start from scratch. So I've been looking into these prepared kits, with all their fancy water purification tablets and food bars and waterproof matches. It just seems much easier to purchase an emergency pack with everything already in it! A pack that you can just grab as you head out the door, you know, if the need arises.
