Many people have Bug Out Bags that are heavy, and impractical to the every day life style, luging these bags to work and in transit is not and option. This tutorial emphasizes creating a small low profile box that is not to chunky to stuff into the bottom of your every day carry bag, we will be creating a small but useful survival box out of a cheap ($8.00 CND) water tight ammunition box with house hold and every day hunting/camping materials. Although this box does not have many items, it is a better that nothing and creates the foundation for basic survival. This will include navigation, hunting, chopping fire/shelter wood, sharpening, currency (silver ounces), warmth, signalling, electricity (solar), protection and so fourth. This however does not factor in food and water as you should carry these things in your nap sack.
Disclaimer: This project will not guarantee your survival but could help you in a survival situation if used properly. Some of these items may be illegal (ie large fixed blades) in your area so always follow your areas restricted and dangerous items law.
Step 1: Choosing A Box
I have chosen a water tight ammunition box because of its versatility, ruggedness and the concept that I hope my idea will create. Go to your local Walmart or Target and look for these boxes in the fishing section. They should be no more than $15. Choose a box that is right for your needs.
