Do you know how to bake?

Do they have a full kitchen (ie, stove, microwave, oven, sink)?

Vegetarian means different things to different people. Do you eat eggs, milk, or cheese?

I should probably consolidate my hand-sewing supplies... I keep losing my safety pins, needles, and sewing pins, so I have pill vials of them stashed all over my apartment and in my car. Those could come in handy. For trade, I think iodized salt would probably end up being a valued commodity since i...

What exactly is wrong with a Jansport? I bought mine from J.C. Penny's back in 2000 and lugged it through rain, snow and desert sand. It still works! Mom used to buy us Jansport backpacks at the beginning of the school year. They'd last through about November and either the zipper would break or th...

1 - Heating stuff and eating it out of ziploc bags is generally not recommended as it begins to break the plastic down. 2 - "The Hungry Hiker's Book of Good Cooking" is yummy and explains how to do stuff like build your own dehydrator and dehydrate food in the oven.

This is the only picture of one in use I was able to find so you can estimate the size. They actually made an apron out of one, which kinda shows how big it is: http://static.flickr.com/33/46910310_20e19bdea2_m.jpg

Instead of a bandana...

Why not pack a flour sack towel (or three)? They're bigger, work better for tying back hair, making slings, carrying stuff, and are a bit more absorbent if you need to dry something off. I just recently started using them around the house and to tie my hair back and I love them. They fold down about...

I believe it's a medium. We used them as backpacks in HS because regular backpacks broke in a few weeks with the amount of crap we carried.

Iride - lots more people are allergic to whole wheat then they think. That's the reason most good preparedness sites and books recommend eating from your stores regularly and storing a variety of foods.

Honestly, I would probably use a D-ring to finish it off. Why? Because then I can make it longer than I need and use it for other stuff (ie, bundling or rolling up blankets) without having to unravel it first.
