This is my version of an Altoids survival kit, I wish I could add a couple more things but need to figure a way to do it!
Step 1: My Contents
I have an array of things in here, I think all of these would help me survive! I have a survival manual, antibiotic salve, a jig, gunpowder, a bobbin with 10lb. test fishing line and lint in the middle, a SILVER quarter, four waterproof matches, a button compass, a piece of gum, sugar, pepper, sewing kit, fishing kit, a piece of "Rite in the Rain", two safety pins, two arrowheads, tin foil. copper wire, razor blade, two Aleve, First aid kit, a 1 liter stand up drinking bag, and about 5' of braided nylon rope. I also added one of those annoying birthday candles where they re-light, so if the wind blows it out, it should hopefully re-light!
Step 2: The Packing
I added the two band aids on the bottom just cuz' the fit just right! Taped the fishing kit (but the line) on the sides, added all of the flat stuff on the bottom to make it level. I put all of the odd things on the top and put the survival guide on top so it just covers everything. I think that when making an Altoids kit, you have to find your own way. I have struggled with other peoples' way. It's just kind of your thing instead of following others ideas. I also think the kit is personalized to you. Like if you need other things like meds. or what have you, it's your kit, not anybody elses.
Step 3: Show It Off!
Do whatever with it now! Shove it in your glove box, drawer, whatever you go into everyday! Just don't leave without it! Have fun and don't get lost on purpose.
