Built From Experience
This bag was built through personal experience. After enduring the aftermath of two hurricanes, we created this bag based on the things we wish we had during and after those storms. Things we took for granted on a daily basis, suddenly became the most sought after items by thousands of people.
Right after the storm was announced to make landfall, we jumped in our cars and went to the store to get supplies. We thought we had everyone beat. By the time we made the 20-minute ride, the store was already wiped clean of any supplies we would need. We immediately knew we were in trouble.
We managed to ride out the storm well enough and thought the worst of it was over. Little did we know the worst was yet to come. Grocery stores and restaurants lost power just like everyone else. Deliveries couldn't come in or out. We were stuck with only the food we had in the cupboard. Crackers, dry cereal, and a few bags of chips. Days went by, and all we wanted was just one hot meal.
