Dude you've got to get some of these glowsticks:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0052ZAPXU/ref=sxts_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1539370493&sr=1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65

They're brighter than any glowstick I've ever seen and glow for 12 hrs without dimming. They've been my obsession recently. Highly recommend ordering some thin paracord to make the ultimate party necklace/poi/source of happiness for each of your friends.

Other suggestions for your get-together:

My friends and I like to move all the furniture out of the middle of the living room to create open floor space for dancing and sprawling out on the ground. Make a huge pile of blankets and pillows in the middle of the room and set the speakers up right in front of it!

We also love to get variety packs of different craft beers and try them while rolling! Things taste so different you may be surprised!

Obviously water is very important. It can be very nice to squeeze a lemon or lime into your ice water for a refreshing zing. Really perks you up!

15 people is a large group, so there's a good chance you'll have people in different moods/states of mind. It may be a good idea to set up 2 or 3 different rooms with different lighting, music, vibes so if anyone isn't feeling where they're at, they can move elsewhere.

Fruit is always a great idea. Just make sure to cut it up beforehand so you aren't dealing with knives while impaired lol.

Cigarettes and or vapes if you guys use nicotine. The smoking area is always a popular spot to hang out during a roll party!

Vicks vapor rub is also great to rub on each other's faces/necks while rolling so a little jar of that would be awesome.

Great start! Feel free to x-post to /r/bugout, as they'll have some more suggestions. Here are my thoughts:

  • I agree with gittenlucky: if the first-aid kit is mostly off-the-shelf, you may want to consider adding some pain killers, anti-diarrhea, and any prescription meds you might require. Some people also recommend iosat tabs, if you're concerned about nukes. If you're comfortable collecting and using them, also consider minor surgical gear, antibiotics, etc. Maybe some sun/bug protection? If you're walking, moleskin and foot powder?

  • Although I noticed you have at least one pull-top food can, the P-38 can opener is lighter and surprisingly effective. If you're interested in lightening the load, they're available cheaply. Lighter than carrying cans, you might alternatively consider a stack of Datrex bars.

  • While the candles might be romantic on a calm day, I'd swap them out for a flashlight, head light, or a pack of chemical glow lights. Each stick lasts about 8 hours and is pretty bright.

  • Have you considered any defensive items, even if it's as benign as pepper spray?

I (as well as many, many others) was stuck without power for about a week in an early winter in October here in the North East US when it snowed before the trees dropped their leaves. This caused a mess.

Here's some things that helped me get through the week (in no order):

  • Cyalume snap lights. These worked as a great source of light that lasted about 12 hours (get the good ones) and took no batteries. I now have a few stashed in every room of the house.

  • A propane camp stove and lots of cans of propane. This and a large pot was all I had to make hot water to wash with.

  • Water, lots of water! I filled 4, 5-gallon containers, all the other containers I had, bought as much as I could get. I had to use the water to flush the toilet as well since my well pump went out with the power.

  • Fill a bunch of zip lock freezer bags with water and freeze them now. I used these for cooling food (although we also had access to snow). Fill your freezer with ice!

  • A few coolers to keep things cool/cold.

  • A percolating coffee pot for camping - this made some great coffee. Also a french press works as well.

  • Peanut butter, soup, tuna, other canned goods that you don't need to cook were OK in a pinch.

  • A generator. The first night of the storm, I ordered a generator from Amazon on my phone with next day delivery. All the big box stores were emptied fast but I had one delivered the next day!

  • LED Flashlights and tons of batteries.

  • A few radios. At least one that can be charged with a wind up.

  • Battery backups - those phone charger bricks, solar chargers, those auto jump start batteries usually have a 12V charger as well. I also keep a few charged car batteries on hand for 12V in a pinch.

    Good luck, stay safe!

Better than road flares - Spend the $10 and get a box of ChemLights (http://www.amazon.com/Cyalume-ChemLight-Military-Chemical-Duration/dp/B0052ZAPXU).

Tie a piece of string through the loop on a few of them (but don't crack them). In case of an emergency like in the article, you can crack the light to activate it and spin it in a circle (called a NATO Buzzsaw) that is VERY VERY obvious to see from a distance. It will make people stop their car well in advance. You can use other ChemLights to block off the lane the way road flares are used. If you have a passenger(s) to perform NATO Buzzsaws, it will be much safer for you to help someone that got in an accident or needs help changing a tire.

Everyone should be certified in CPR if they can; it's not as difficult as it sounds. It's ~$80 for the first 2-year certification through the American Heart Association (much cheaper than through the Red Cross) and then I believe $40 for renewals after that. The importance of CPR is not to save someone on your own, but to keep someone alive long enough for EMTs/emergency physicians to arrive.

I'd also recommend blankets in your trunk, and a first aid kit with gauze wraps in place of band-aids, preferably compression bandages. A Tourniquet is great if you know how to use it but be careful, some states have laws against using them.

Thanks for the feedback!

  1. Yeah, I know. I ordered a pack of ten and just threw the whole lot in there. One thing I do like about the chem lights is their duration. At 8hrs each, they last longer than a few AAAs in the head lamp and, when hung overhead, the white ones do a decent job of illuminating a campsite.
  2. Laughing when I took the pictures, I even thought about removing the booze from the shot. I got them for free on one of my recent flights, and just tossed them in the bag. I figured, for their light weight, it couldn't hurt.
  3. Good call on the mylar blanket. I'll add a couple and some paracord for rigging.
  4. I know... I know... It is at the top of the pack for quick access. I've put it on several times, and can get a seal pretty reliably. Even if you discount its chemical/biological use, I thought it might serve dual-duty protecting against airborne dust. (I was recalling ground-zero pictures post 9/11.) Thoughts?
  5. Good call on the extra winter gear. Likewise, I assumed I'd already have winter coat/gloves with me, if the season dictated, but being exposed for longer than a typical commute would require more. I'll be adding that.

    Thanks again!

I want these for my camping/survival kit, and I think they fit the requirements perfectly.

u/RaveDigger · 2 pointsr/aves

These glowsticks are insanely bright and last all night. I cracked them in the middle of a crowd at WEMF and they caught people's attention even among the hordes of other glowsticks.

These or these are never a bad idea either, no matter how good of a swimmer you are!

There's also more 'tactical' ones than you'll typically find in a dollar store like https://www.amazon.com/Cyalume-ChemLight-Military-Chemical-Sticks/dp/B0052ZAPXU?th=1

u/Theageofpisces · 1 pointr/camping

For glow sticks, you can also find something like this

u/DwarvenRedshirt · 1 pointr/paintball

Yep, https://www.amazon.com/Cyalume-Military-ChemLight-SnapLight-Lightsticks/dp/B00CJI6T4M

Now why he'd have it in his paintball kit, I don't know. Unless maybe he did night games.

u/Irishlefty9 · 1 pointr/preppers

Huh. That contraption is a new one on me.

This is what I've always gotten: Cyalume ChemLight Military Grade Chemical Light Sticks, Green, 6" Long, 12 Hour Duration (Pack of 10) Cyalume http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0052ZAP6M/ref=cm_sw_r_udp_awd_l1xSub0PS6TAQ

Here's a little tip I picked up at a Mas Ayoob class.

1. Get some chemlights.

2. Attach spare house key to a chemlight.

3. Draw a really shitty floorplan on a 3x5" card. It doesn't have to be a masterpiece, keep it simple and focus on doors and highlight bedrooms.

4. Rubberband 3x5" card to chemlight.

This way, if movement is restricted or the bad guy's location is unknown, you can attempt to get the chemlight out of a window or access so that responders have some information to work with and a key.
Be sure to tell dispatch you are doing this, and where you tossed it.

Optional:
Write garage door codes on the card and keep a golf pencil in the rubberband so you can mark your location on the card.
