*Disclaimer: I am by no means a professional when it comes to what one would need to survive in a situation where you're lost in the woods. I have also never lived anywhere outside of Oregon. That being said, I've seen survival kits, bug out bags and the like, and thought, "I could do that." So I did. I've put together (although not fully) a kit that would allow me to go a couple of days or more in the Oregon wilderness. I am also working on a YouTube series featuring my cousin and his friend to illustrate how one would survive in the Oregon wilderness and figured that since I'd be along to film, I might as well take my own kit and see if it'll actually work.
In the picture above there is:
1 - Water bottle with carabiner clip so that I can carry it on my belt. This bottle holds 1.5 liters of water.
2 - Machete with saw teeth on the spine.
3 - Backpack containing the rest of the camping/ survival kit.
4 - Folding military shovel.
5 - Monopod that no longer holds a camera...so now it's a walking/ multipurpose stick.
