Doesn't weigh much and can be modified to fit almost any kit. Plus it's the best motivation for survival. Thanks.

Sometimes it's the simplest things that can be the most valuable in a crisis.

I have been meaning to do this and have not, shame on me. I guess I could go dust off the photo printer.

Also makes it easier to find lost family members.

Good post

I have heard many stories over the years from people who swore that a picture of a loved one is what helped them to survive. It's also very popular in warzones, and can do a lot for the moral of soldiers.

I actually had a similar post written a few weeks ago that I forgot to post. It's great to see so many survivalists in tune with each other. Good to know there are people out there that have a sense of what is important in life.

Little things can make a difference in whether you survive or don't!Soldiers have known this for a long time.

Great minds think alike! Wait a while and post your thoughts. We can always use a reminder. Plus someone out there may miss this post and see yours! Thanks.

In all of our BOBs, we have small 2GB thumb drives with copies of all of the family photos, and birth certs, passports, etc. That way, if the house gets blown down and washed away, we'll still have our family history photos and docs.

To: Zegon

Thumb drive here also! Keep a couple of hard copy (photos) on hand also. Good tip!Thanks.

To: Mayberry

Group picture or individual pics that are handy would make printing flyers easier if someone gets lost....great idea there!

Thanks for the excellent tip!

Tom Hanks in Castaway had a photo - that seemed to sustain him. Also he had a soccer ball. :-)

To: Mungo

I had forgotten about the photo in the Castaway! Thanks.


BTW, I've got a soccer ball too!

Sorry to revive this tread. Zombies lurking...

But remember, in any kind of emergency you might get separated from your loved ones. Having individual photos ready might help in a refugee situation.
You can easily ask people or put up pictures on a board.
Remember the missing board at gound zero, NYC.

Let's hope we will never need the pictures for this!
