Survival Base Camp Medical Kit received the following comment: "Anonymous said....The $1000 "what would you buy thing" is a good idea for a post. I will work on a reply, but I have a question: Can you give me an idea for a Medical Kit, not a personal kit, but maybe a chest or foot locker. What would I need to provide medical care for a family if four and anticipating six more people arriving at my house. It would be great if you can do a post on this."
