Most of the items talked about in this post we won’t be stocking in the Bike Touring News store, but we have an affiliate relationship with Campmor. There is a good local source for knives and other useful items, and they sell flashlights, too. I have a few friends who carry a snack sized bag of Doritos or Fritos in their emergency kits. At least once a year we have a family night where we talk about what to do if lost and practice using the items in the kit.
