Since we have four storms headed in our direction, it seemed like a good time to update/consolidate the in-home survival kit. In one box I now have

  • a single-burner propane stove with 3 cartridges
  • a saucepan
  • a skillet
  • candles
  • flashlights and batteries
  • battery-powered radio
  • a first-aid kit of sorts
  • a can opener and church key
  • spam and beans and saimin
  • dog leash

The personal go kit will contain meds, clothes (especially socks), knife, and important papers (insurance policies in particular). For a better example of this kind of thing, go here.


  1. Either NWS is having major problems with the Hawaii website, or everyone in Hawaii is trying to access the CPHC site, or both. It’s been super slow since yesterday.
