North American Expedition


Imagine that your parents have announced that your family will be going on an expedition across North America.  Your family will be traveling through a remote wilderness with no place to stop for food or supplies.  What would you take along?  You will be allowed to take two of your most prized possessions in addition to the necessities you might need.
