Another Altoids Survival Kit





Introduction: Another Altoids Survival Kit

This is another survival kit that I put together. I was very bored. This contains

-2 sticks of gum
-4 paperclips
-a quart sized ziplock bag
-a small multi-tool with a built in flashlight
-a compass and a mirror
-a pencil
-some folded up paper
-some folded up tinfoil 
-five strike anywhere matches (in the plastic bag) (not shown)
-some wire (not shown)

Step 1: Plastic Bag, Tin Foil, and Paper

The plastic bag is to keep matches in. You can also put the entire altoids tin into the bag if you have to swim or enter any water. The tin foil can be used to cook food. Paper can be used to light a fire, or write a note on. 

Step 2: Pencil, Rubber Bands, and Paperclips

The pencil is to write on the paper. Rubber bands have as many uses as you can think of, and paperclips can be used as fish hooks. They can also be used to connect or hold up components of a fort. 

Step 3: Gum and Matches

Gum can be used as a watertight seal on nearly anything. Matches are used to start a fire. If yo can, also bring a magnesium rod, as they always work to start a fire. (the matches are not shown in the pictures)

Step 4: Multi-tool, Compass, and Mirror

The multi-tool has infinite uses. The compass will help point you towards civilization. The mirror can be used to start a fire of to signal a passing plane or hikers. 

Step 5: Done!

The matches and paper go inside of the plastic bag, and the rest of the stuff fits in anywhere in the altoids tin. The rubber bands should be placed around the outside of it to save space.

    You could wrap paracord around the altoids tin also

    you also could sand down the lidd for signaling incase you lose you tin foil

    the the money down and make a good knife bye the way which store did u get the cabellas multi tool at

    Got it for my b-day a long time ago.

    Also,find things that are smaller than the compass and can be swished so
    you can put them in the compass.

    use wire to tie it shut? elastics will wear out then snap, useful as they are.

    A small amount of money is always useful,

    If you are stuck in the middle of the woods what could you possibly need money for?
