Introduction: Everything You Need to Survive in the Woods

Hi everyone! I love being in the woods, but can never figure out what to take on a long trip. These are Some things that i like to have. If you have any questions, please ask! Also feel free to give any tips or ideas

Step 1: Knife

First, you'll need a knife. Knives can be used for a number of things, and are good to have on hand.

Step 2: Rope and Wire

Next, you'll need rope and a coil of wire. The rope can be used for tying things up, and the coil of wire can be used to make snares

Step 3: Food

Now, you will want to pack some preservable food. Nutritional bars, crackers, and dried beef are good choices.

Step 4: Gun or Bow and Arrows

You will most likely need something other than crackers for a sustainable diet. A weapon can be used to hunt for food, and protection

Step 5: Water

This is probably the most vital thing to have. You will need to bring a water bottle AND purification tablets.

Step 6: Sleeping Bag

If you plan on spending the night, it's best to bring a sleeping bag. I prefer a thicker one with extra insulation

Step 7: First Aid

Next, you will need a first aid kit. These are very important, and should always be carried with you when in the woods.

Step 8: Heat

Lastly, One important thing you will need is a lighter, or waterproof matches. These will be needed to start a fire for cooking, light, and warmth.
