69. Pretty much covers it.

Besides canned goods and water, I have a small tabletop propane grill that I can set up outside to cook on. I keep at least one spare bottle of fuel around.
My neighbor makes venison jerky and he gives me about 2 pounds worth every year-jerky is a good way of keeping meat.
A gallon jug of bleach will purify water for a long time. 2 drops per quart.
I also have an emergency lantern with a hand crank. It has a light, flasher unit, AM-FM radio, and a cell phone charger plug. 5 minutes of cranking will give you about 45 minutes of light or about 6 hours worth of radio.
Always keep a magic fire stick handy. I have lighters and a striker unit built into my knife sheath.
Since I live near water, I also have a collapsible fishing rod in the glove box of my truck with a small case of hooks and lures.
