I worked hard to change things and find a solution. I knew things would work out because whenever I took action to get relief something good always came out of it.
The propane heater gave me pause, as I thought I was looking at a BOB list. The long fishing pole started to make me think you’re crazy. The canned food, wine and liquor are what made it dawn on me that this list is obviously not intended to cover one specific type of kit.
