First Aid Kits (BR Podcast 37)

In our ten years of cruising, we’ve been pretty lucky not to have to use the really serious stuff in our first aid kit. Well, actually, we’ve had to use the Epi-Pens, SAM splint and butterfly bandages . . . but all were when we were on “land vacations” and took our first aid kits along.

Far more often, we’ve used the everyday stuff for minor cuts and scrapes, colds, gastrointestinal upsets and so on. Glad we’ve got it all and that I can grab what I need on a moment’s notice.

I can’t say my way of organizing our supplies is perfect, or that our supplies are right for everyone. Listen in for what we carry and how I organize it.
