2 Razor Blades
5 Zip Ties
6 Safety Pins
Gorilla Tape
Paracord
2 Tylenol (straw tube)
Cotton/Vaseline (straw tube)
2 Aquamira Tabs
Aquaphor (straw tube)
Important Docs (flash drive)

One $5 Bill ???

You may want to update that amount to 2015 prices. The days of using just $5 to buy lunch, get a taxi cab ride, or to buy just enough gas to get you home are long gone my friend. I think having four $5 bills will serve you better.

That's a nice little ASK. I like the way you've stored the Tylenol and the Vasoline in the straw tubes.

But Mikeyboy is clearly in the wrong here. Four $5 bills is way overkill. One $20 bill is more than sufficient. :crazy:

And 1 Five is way more useful than 0 fives. that will get you a water, a cliff bar and a bus ride.

That's probably a good idea.

I would also like to note that my wife has an identical kit that she keeps in her purse.

Nice work with the kit. Got the wheels turning now.

"Flawlessly". Every time I see this word in a thread, I brace myself for bullshit. Around half the time I end up feeling vindicated.
