Urban Girl here.

Can you believe it’s almost the middle of November? Where did the year go? It seems like I was just posting about planting my garden, and now Utah has a foot of snow on the ground.

Here’s a quick update on what I’ve been up to since I last posted:

I got a car kit put together with a basic 3-day emergency kit and a basic car repair kit. I had a spare red backpack hanging around from my college days, and I had some extra first aid items on hand, as well. So I assembled those into the backpack, added some bottled water, and got some MRE’s and a Millenium bar combo to add into the kit. That covers most of the very basics; now I just need to add an emergency bag or bivvy, a headlamp, and some spare batteries.

I bought some fire extinguishers. We had a kitchen fire at my house last year, and no one could Replace an extinguisher, so they used powdered sugar to put it out. Luckily that worked, and the fire was extinguished before it forced us to evacuate. But now we can avoid scrambling for something to put our fires in the future.

I bought a few packs of hand warmers. Winter is long in Utah, and if I got stranded on the road, I would definitely want some of these readily available.

I also purchased a Tote-able Toilet with 2 Enzyme packets. Enough said, right?

So, that’s what I’ve been up to. What about you?
