A friends daughter hit me up a while ago for one of those " Survival Grenade" well it's christmas time and being the cheapskate I am I built her one as a gift in it is the following . I simply made her a small kit that she can have in her car Just in case or take it on a hike clipped to the inside of her pack general useage but not all hardcore outdoors stuff and not all cityfied either

Well I got it done with just a few tweaks to do, I've got most of it packed and well I have added to it so its bigger then originally planed .As it's for a friends daughter and shes not all that into somethings i have changed the list a bit.

This is very cool, and you did a nice job! Earlier this year I put together a multi-day ditch kit and added it to my truck/trail gear - one of those things that theoretically I may never actually use, although sure will be thankful to have if the unexpected happens.
