    I've been putting some thought into putting a kit together myself...you would think it would be super easy for me as an EMT, but I'm so used to carrying such a large supply at work that my idea of "basic needs" is NOT practical for space efficiency [LOL]. I'll definitely have something put together before we get to any remote areas though

    LOL, I was just thinking the same thing. My EMT bag is always in my vehicle but yep it's not exactly "basic"
