I turned a school backpack into a Ultimate Survival Kit !
I have been building this kit for 12 months and I have made 2 Backpacks one I keep in my car the other I keep in my house. I made sure I had shelter needs, dietary needs, hygiene needs, medical needs, weather needs, and personal needs all included in these bags. From morning to nights I can survive and even in cold and hot weather conditions. Hope these pics help you see collapsible things and camping things are compact these days.
Step 1: All First Aid and Hygiene Needs
First I started by buying first aid kits and extra first aid stuff including:
Band aids, Medicated creams, medicine from allergy medicines to nausea medicine and antibiotic creams.
My doctor gave me antibiotic medicine that i got two bottles for and put a 7 day supply in each bag.
I got 2 of all the following Latex gloves sets, tooth brushes, tweezers, nail clippers, Vaselines, Aspirin and pain medicines, digital thermometers, medical tapes, duct tapes, scissors ace bandages and first aid guides.
I bought tarps and garbage bags, toilet paper, nylon ropes, battery radios and flashlights.
I got personal hygiene stuff like toothbrushes, soap antibacterial, antibacterial lotions, thick work gloves and latex gloves.
I have been adding to these bags still and till i have no room left then I will be happy.
Every thing I got I made sure of dates that expire and if anything was perishable also.
Step 2: Cooking Pans, Utensils, Cups and Liquid Holders
I purchased kits that were as compact as possible like this cooking set and cups and liquid holding bags.
Step 3: Energy Foods and Dried Goods
I got this kit to split in to the two bags and I also carry protein bars, sugar drops for sugar needs and granola bars for energy that is easy dispensed and able to use for days on in. I keep a list of all my supplies and if I find something I need or might want I get it.
This kit is for the ultimate surviving situation and if needed I am prepared for anything I can be.
Hope you see it is easy to always have a simple backpack and turn it into the ultimate survival kit . If I breakdown in the snow or get lost on a hike I will be able to survive for at the least 7 days and at the most almost a month. Each bag will help if there is an accident to not starving. along with these things I also carry a battery pack and cords to charge my cell phones and I keep them in check every 3 months.
Hope this helps you with what to include in your kits.
