Step 1: Medical Supplies
In case you ever find your self in need of a band aid after a nasty duel with a T-101 Terminator (if you survive) or rabid squirrel, you may want to keep the cut, bruise, gash, well protected so it can heal correctly. Oh and F.Y.I. it would be best if this stuff be in its own container. It can include anything from band-aids to toilet paper, some of the stuff I put in my box are...
I would strongly suggest that you do not put any advil or similar pain killers in there, just because most of those types of pills have a due date.
Step 2: What You Want to Have
Below is a picture of everything I encluded in my box, there are notes to explain what they are.
Step 3: Tools
Of course you will need tools to build a shelter or dissect a small terminator to remove its chip (thus de-activiting it). Here are some helpful tools you should have...
-At least two types of screw drivers
-needle nose pliers
-maker or pen
If any other tools you might see as useful, add them.
Step 4: Electronics
Here are some simple yet efficient ways to harness free engery, know the date via radio, or find some small pocket change or any other useful metal. Here are some of those simple yet efficient electronics that I included...
-FLED Solar engine (https://www.instructables.com/id/Intro_To_BEAM_Robotics_And_The_Solar_Engine/)
-Simple Metal Dector (https://www.instructables.com/id/1_2_3_Metal_Detector/)
-soldering iron + solder (not shown)
Using the solar engine you can power a cell phone (if you get some reception) or use it to power the radio. The metal dector will assist you in finding some small metallic parts or pocket change (Ex: quarters, penny's, dimes, any currency thats magnetic). The soldering iron will help you solder metal to metal or enable you to build some sort of helpful electronic device.
Step 5: Box
the box you use should be durable, metal, and be able to take a beating with out breaking. I used a metal box I found while cleaning out the attic. After a quick spray paint and some oiling, it was as good as new!
Step 6: Money
You can never go wrong with adding allittle cash. who knows? maybe while you get your life back in order after the dooms day event you will need to but a couple of items. I just threw in two $10 bills, (but took them out later :P).
Step 7: Final Touches
Once everything is in order you might want to put it a safe place. If you feel the need to add anything please do this ible is only a guide to what you can use. Over all keep it tidy and up-to-date you never know when a nuclear holocaust or strange weather may occur!
