Survival Kit in a Can

About: I'm just me.

Altoids survival kits seem a bit small to me and I could not fit all I wanted in the and the close properly. So this survival kit is made from a soup can that was opened with a safty can opener so it sort of has a lid to it.

    That yellow box at the top is a waterproof box available in any Walmart sporting goods dept. They sell for about 12 bucks. I have one and I'm using it for my Bear Grylls kit because I've added stuff to it. Great box. It's actually made for cell phones and wallets for when you're boating or at the beach.

    I would replace the q tips with several cotton balls tightly would with one long piece of dental floss or fishing line, giving much more cotton to use, and more importantly, thin rope for tying things, an very useful ability. I prefer this size survival kit over the altoids ones because its hard to fit in everything you may need in, and you generally have to leave things out.
