Always have basic eye/hand/ear protection in your kit or vehicle. Good gloves, some safety/shooting eye pro, and some simple ear plugs can make a world of a difference. Small scrapes or cuts on your hands may be no big deal now, but in a survival situation it could very well mean death. Same with eye pro, you don’t want to get a stick jabbed in there, or dust/small particles. And ear pro is just that, especially for people who shoot. Long term hearing damage would suck, especially in a long term grid down world.
And remember, 2 is 1 and 1 is none.
