Introduction: Pocket Survival Kit Grande 2.0
This is an upgrade to my previous instructable Pocket Survival Kit Grande. All of these items will help me in an outdoor survival situation. I will list them in categories (eg. fire, water, etc.) Thanks for checking this out!
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
This section of the kit provides me with about 100 or so fires and fire starters.
-matchbook w/ 20 matches (fire)
-flint and steel (fire)
-candle (light, fire starter)
-3 homemade petroleum jelly and cotton fire starters (fire starters)
-matches in waterproof container (fire with the advantage of being waterproof)
Step 2: Water
This kit has everything you need to clean and purify some swamp water or collect some dew off of a tree.
-4 aquatabs 1 gal (water purification)
-coffee filter (filtering water, tinder)
-2 cup plastic pag (water storage, water collection)
Step 3: First Aid
Cuts and scrapes can get infected, hives you get from a poisonous plant can lead to sickness, and that small migraine could prevent you from doing the things you need to do in a survival situation. This section of the kit can make sure that doesn't happen.
-2 butterfly bandages (holding larger cuts together)
-2 adhesive bandages (for the smaller cuts)
-3 safety pins (removing splinters if sterilized with match, holding a makeshift sling together, fishhooks, etc.)
-1 benadryl (subduing reactions to toxins)
-2 ibuprofen (pain and fever relief)
-skin cream (more of a personal thing but can heal dry skin)
Step 4: Trapping and Fishing
Getting some meat out in the wild isn't a walk in the park, but with this section you shouldn't have to go through as much trouble to get a squirrel or a trout.
-3 ft wire (snares, lashing)
-7 ft 20 pound line (fishing, lashing)
-2 plastic lures (fishing)
-3 medium fish hooks (fishing)
-1 sinker (fishing)
Step 5: Tools
You can't make shelter or craft weapons with just your hands, but this section supplies you with the right equipment to acquire both.
-sand paper (presice wood work)
-razor blade (cutting, carving, first aid)
-needle (removing splinters if sterilized with match, tool making, sewing, makeshift arrow heads, etc.)
-small flip knife (tool making, cutting, carving, food preperation, etc.)
Step 6: Miscellaneous
These items either didn't fit into any category, or fit into multiple. That doesn't make them any less useful in a survival situation.
-1 sq ft tin foil (boiling water, cooking, can be folded into a cup to collect water, reflective surface)
-1 ft duct tape (first aid, repair, tool making, lashing, tinder, etc.)
-pencil and paper (note taking, informing rescuers, moral booster)
-3 ft twine (sewing, repair, lashing, weapon making, snares, etc.)
-4 quarter/$1 (buying some water or food if you reach civilazation or to make a phone call)
-hot glue (first aid, repair, weapon and tool making, etc.)
-LED and watch battery (light)
-salt (first aid, food preservation)
-nails (makeshift arrowheads, shelter making, repair)
-important info (not shown for security reasons) includes my name, my family members phone numbers, blood type and any allergies to medicine)
After you have all of this, find a container that fits in your pocket, has a closing lid, and can fit all this.
