I like it

Rkaynjehll (author)2014-04-05

ppl are so worried about carrying food. If you're out in the wild surviving.. food is all around you. Just gotta go get it. I pack a few main meals from MREs I tore apart but those are for a worst case scenario. Get this book - "Edible Wild Plants" by Lee Allen Peterson. It's in the Peterson Field Guides series. Put it in your pack in a ziplock so it doesn't get wet. That book will feed you by itself. Learn to hunt/trap.. you'll have a full belly every night. As far as mass packing of foodstuffs.. pack salt and pepper plus 1 other spice that you REALLY like. I pack red pepper. I love that stuff

floppyjoe (author)2014-03-27

A good thing to pack is a piece of bicycle inner tube. Cut a small piece off when you light a fire. it burns fast and long to get things going

Rkaynjehll (author)floppyjoe2014-04-05

and produces a horrible smell that the animals you want to hunt/trap HATE. If you need to burn rubber... you're probly making your fire wrong sry man :)

Survivorkidjr (author)2014-04-04

Do you think hammocks/ tents/ drop cloths/ tarps are best? What abound wool blankets/ sleeping bags/ emergency blankets are best?

Rkaynjehll (author)Survivorkidjr2014-04-05

I dont really suggest the wool blanket. for a few reasons.

- Mildews easily from even moisture in the air.

- Heavy.

- Not warm enough for the amount of space/weight it takes up.

- Bugs love wool.

- Takes longer than poly to wash.

- Will get worn out a lot faster than poly.

I carry an emergency space blanket just in case. But not for every night use. It's for in case I get too cold or fall in a puddle/river/lake.

Tarps will take up the least amount of space. But you cant guarantee you'll have the perfect spot around to put one up. If it's raining you'll likely be sleeping in the mud from run-off.. Same with drop cloths.

Tents and hammocks work greak but take up some space and will likely weigh you down. And unless you build a sturdy paracord hammock.. You'll have limited use from it. A small, well cared for, tent is the best way to go. I prefer a hammock because I pretty much slept on the ground for a year while I was in Iraq. Never again...

Hope this helps

I've been using a enclosed camping hammock for years. It was affordable when I purchased it at round $50.

I've also gone on camping trips with only a ground cloth and a wool blanket. Works great.

Survivorkidjr (author)2014-04-03

Do you guys have any ideas of what to sleep on or sleep system that is cheap and small.

Rkaynjehll (author)Survivorkidjr2014-04-04

Check out my instructable. I posted up my vest.

Rkaynjehll (author)Survivorkidjr2014-04-04

I would go find a military surplus store and price the sleep systems there. I found a very nice one a while back for 40$. They're worth hundreds.

Rkaynjehll (author)2014-04-03

I cant really suggest anything without knowing more. What are you preparing for? This looks like it could be the beginning of many different setups. Are you going camping or prepping for the apocalypse? Are you planning to support only yourself or are you taking your siblings/parents/significant other? What type of area are you planning to use this in? Urban, forest, desert? Does it get cold? Do you plan on hunting/trapping/fishing? Is there clean water available? How do you plan on dealing with the local snake/bug/spider population? Do you mind sleeping on the ground? All these things need to be considered and planned for. The more information you give the better advice you'll get. This is a good start though. I can tell that you're putting some effort into this. Good job

ajensen27 (author)2014-03-27

i would look into meal replacement bars. look for higher protein ones. add a bandana or two. some duct tape. go to flea markets or visit for decent knives. small first aid kit. add a small tub of vaseline(look up its uses). walmart carries a hydration bladder for cheap compared to others its in the hiking section. oh and get at least one good light i carry a coleman max and my bag has a mini maglite and a cheap three aaa light. and spare batteries. also bunch of good quality zipties. harbor freight dollar tree and flea markets are places to look for the cheaper items. i have a large packpack but i still look for ideas to add to my supplies.

Rkaynjehll (author)ajensen272014-04-03

budk for knives? sry.. I've been a knife / firearm finatic since birth. If you want to stay on the cheap, get a CRKT. If you wanna spend money, get a Strider.

_Who (author)2014-03-30

As a cookin utensil sorry*

_Who (author)2014-03-30

Try buy a tri fold shovel it's about $10 it can be used as a weapon cutting tool digging tool and a stove has endless uses

jfischer12 (author)2014-03-29

A great start!!! Try this as an idea for food. Each one is three days worth of food. Lasts about a year. Keep up the great work!!

_Who (author)2014-03-29

Look on the internet I got taught this one

_Who (author)2014-03-29

Survivorkidjr (author)2014-03-29

What's the ruler for?

Survivorkidjr (author)2014-03-29

_Who (author)2014-03-28

Add firesteel, alot more knives, gasmask, map or book of your state extremely useful, bags on your belt, fishing vest they are really useful have nore pockets, duct tape, compass, binoculars,

_Who (author)2014-03-28

Try putting a canteen prefferably a metal one

Survivorkidjr (author)2014-03-27

I have rice oatmeal sugar coffee tea salt and flavor packets.

jmwells (author)2014-03-27

Otherwise a very good start.

jmwells (author)2014-03-27

So cheap it's free. Salt, pepper, and sugar packets from fast food places. Bag separately to keep them dry. Plastic spoons (Wendy's are best, they bend before breaking). Catsup packets(add water you got soup). I'd store them in a metal cup made from a washed out food can.
Add other small food items as you can. Hard candies, Boullion cubes, jerky, beef sticks,...

bwittman (author)2014-03-27

Magnesium fire starter from Harbor Freight for around $2 and dryer lint. A compass. Good start on your bug out bag.
