Good luck is when opportunity meets preparation, while bad luck is when lack of preparation meets reality.

I almost certainly carry way too much stuff - the idea was that I could survive for 3 days in the middle of nowhere (90% of the west coast!) if the weather turned nasty.  Problem now is that if I don't take something I can guarantee I'll need it on the next outing!  The other disadvantages of so much stuff is remembering  what you've got - and then being able to find it!

Beware of use by dates.
PS these often have the YEAR also------
You can store your food in SEALED plazie containers so the firefighter paraffin can permeate and release your bowels into the ether.
