Wilderness Survival Kit





Introduction: Wilderness Survival Kit

Here are a few tips on surviving in the wilderness. If you are lost, DO NOT go far from where you are. If you have means to start a fire, you should only go about 30-40 feet and you should make sure you have A TON of wood because you probably would not want to tromp around in the woods 40 feet from a dying bed of burning coals in the middle of the night, While you can't see. So if you're lost, just make a small wood pile near your fire. If you are hurt, try to move around as lightly on the broken limb, so you might be able to gather materials to start a fire.....and a smokey one at that!

    no offence man but this kit wouldnt keep you alive for 3 days. neither would your advice.

    for instance the poncho wouldn't hold up long in a slight breeze, nothing to boil water (the tinfoil would fail fast) so your looking at dehydration, a kitchen knife. your looking at 330 stainless at best, would lose its edge if you sneezed on it.

    id go on but i dont want to sound hateful. look at my kit for the basic needs. and look at punkhead58's kit and airth's kit for something more comprehensive

    all the stuff in this kit is still a hell of a lot better than nothing

    Hey, thanks for the promotion!

    its good info and needs to be out there man, its not that often i see things worth promoting and when i do i make sure they are known

    Actually, the tin foil would not be what I would boil my water in, the coffee can would be what I would boil the water with. And in the winter and maybe the summer, I would have my water proof sweatshirt, my waterproof boots, possibly hip waders if I'm fly-fishing, or just having to cross a stream, and, about the kitchen knife, that would only be used if I was cleaning something I killed to eat, or it would be used to cut the meat that I cleaned off the animal that i killed, that would be cooked over the fire on some rigid metal netting with a coffee can full of water boiling away.

    theres absolutely no way that that light is 1000 lumens at 1 watt. Specifically, rechargeable via the sun, absolutely improbable. you would need a solar panel approx 3x3 feet and the light source would require 15 watts. If the light shown were to be as you specified it would need to charge for a multitude of years with a much larger capacitor/battery to light the led for one second. also i agree with okoshima.

    its 100 lumens. i think my other flashight which has 8 white LEDs might possibly cut 1000 lumens. i also have a headlamp that might peak 500 lumens with new batteries.

    I think that your very mistaken about the 500 lumen headlamp as well as a 100 lumen light under any circumstances. A generic flashlight puts out about 20 lumens. A very expensive surefire light might put out 350 lumens. There's no way that you have a 500 lumen headlamp.
