Picture of Water bottle survival kit
This is my first instructable I have done. Please leave comments.
When I was in boy scouts, we went on a 6 mile hike and we got "lost". The leaders knew where we where but we did not. At the time my survival kit was just an altoids tin with the basic stuff in it such as matches, band aids,supper glue (etc). Which got me thinking what would make a bigger and better survival kit. By far the hardest thing for an survival kit is what you are going to use to hold all of your things.

Picture of What you need
Water bottle
Duck tape
Cigar lighter
Orange ribbon
Sewing needle
Ear plugs
4 Band aids
2 Antibiotic band aids
4 Small gauze pads
1Butterfly band aid
3 Alcohol pads
3-5 Cotton balls
Iodine tablets
Tin foil
Chap stick
Fishing line
Sinkers 1-5
Fishing hooks 1-5

Step 2: Choosing the items

Picture of Choosing the items
When choosing the items try to find items that are like 2 in1 things. I got a whistle, compass, thermometer and a magnifying glass for 2 dollars and that is a 4 in 1. This method simply saves on space and possibly money. Also make sure when you get the flashlight get one where you can replace the battery. The point of these things is to try to save space and to make a lighter survival kit.

I think i would go with a metal bottle. The bit of weight would be worth the ability to boil water.

One the ear plugs can act like a mini bobber for your fishing line at least you can see where your line is at. But I'd also like to add a few things you'd want add to your water bottle. !'d put in at least 1 medium ziplock bag and 1 garbage bag. The zip lock bag can house your goods when the water bottle is in use, or you can use it to house water, and the garbage bag can be a make shift rain coat. plus 3 small eye screws, you can use a small sapling to make a pole out of the eye screws.

With the ear plugs you'll want to a fix the fishing hooks first then string on the ear plug as you would a worm, but pull it up the line to the length you want it. then ad the sinkers. with the eye screws get a sapling and 1 on the bottom this is where you tie the line onto, next place the second half way up then the last towards the top string the line before putting on the hook and other pieces on the line, and there you go a homemade fishing pole.
