The Shelter box

This picture gives you some idea of the size and weight of the box.

While doing some research on disasters in third world countries, I came across something called a Shelterbox. This is a box containing a shelter and assorted items  to provide heat and cooking facilities after a disaster.  The charity that provides these to third world countries figure they cost one thousand dollars each including shipping and storage.

While you cannot buy one already made up they have designed a nice compact package that would be very useful in a bug out situation or if you lost the use of your home. …
