we are all supposed to keep some on hand, but SteriPEN had the sidewinder, that uses no batteries, and would be a much better solution in an emergency. Melissa and Doug Easel

Interesting article, after the Cold War nostalgia. I did think the food bit was a little excessive depending on how much time you think you will be isolated. If you just want to hit the 72 hour target, I'm sure most people have more than enough food right now and carrying 3 days worth of food is probably only a small bag.

Plus its not as if when your fridge reaches room temperature; all the food rots immidietly. Some things people put in fridges like fruits, jams, bread, cake (Portal anyone? :p), pre-cooked food and probably some others will still be good for a while.

Mobility may not be a big consideration in some circumstances, your home is where people are going to go look for you, and if you don't know what is going on, moving anywhere else could be worse than staying put.

Funny that you selected a product that requires you to use lithium batteries.  In an emergency, you may not have access to such items, I know we are all supposed to keep some on hand, but SteriPEN had the sidewinder, that uses no batteries, and would be a much better solution in an emergency.
