Introduction: Pocket Survival Kit Grande
This is my first instructable so bear with me. This is one of my many survival kits. I know you are probably sick of survival kit instrucatables, but I am just giving instructables a shot here. I would love any suggestions in the comments.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Fire
FIRE! A very important part of survival. In my kit I have the following:
1 home made fire starter
These should help me on the way to a few easy fires. The candle can be used as a fire starter and the matches can be split if need be (i am planning on adding more matches however)
Step 2: Hunting and Fishing
Getting food and water in a survival situation can be vital. These following items can assist you as you do just that.
1 fishing lure
1 medium sized fish hook
3 ft of line
2 ft of wire
The wire can be used to make snares and i have included just about everything you need to catch a fish.
Step 3: First Aid
Treating and keeping small cuts clean can keep you from getting sick. Holding together large gashes can do the same. This section of my kit can do both.
2 ahesive bandages
1 butterfly bandage
The adhesive bandages were pressed by a heavy book, benadryl cut and the butterfly bandage folded to save space.
Step 4: Food and Water
This set of items is for getting clean water and preparing food
2 water purification tablets (each purifying 1 gal)
1 pack salt
1 sq ft aluminum foil
1 water balloon
The tablets are for their obvious purpose. The salt can be used to preserve meat and for first aid and the aluminum foil for boiling water or cooking food. And the balloon is not for water fights. it is to hold water. (nothing to a condom, but can still hold a good cup or two and takes up less space)
Step 5: General Survival Tools
These following items are just tools that didn't fit in other categories.
4 ft twine
1 sq inch sand paper
2 ft duct tape
1 safety pin
1 razor blade (not pictured)
The rope and duct tape can be used to repair anything as well as for first aid. The compass obviously for navigation. Sandpaper is something i don't see in many kits but i think can be used almost as a back up blade for working with wood and the safety pin for repair and first aid. the razor blade can be used to make kindling for fire, tools to hunt with, and much more.
Step 6: Packing It All In
i like to put the flat things at the bottom, then the larger items and everything after that.
