I didn't mean for the above to sound like an admonishment for anyone here...all of those responses are "cut & pasted" from RatChat...where a member had reacted poorly to a response I gave. . Again - I'm thrilled that respondents in this thread are as excited and motivated as they seem about survival preparations!!!!

Remember to start with the basics....as these never change, because the "human condition" is a constant:

FIRE - Three ways of making fire.
WATER - Three ways to make water potable, and two ways to store it.
SHELTER - Protection from wind and/or rain.
DEFENSE - Protect yourself!
FOOD - Energy to get you home!
FAK - Even a minor cut can turn septic FAST in many survival situations.

Redundancy is critical in survival. The ability to carefully select "cross over" items can be a challenge. For example - I've instructed to have two ways to carry water....

ONE = Nalgene; Canteen; Collapsible Bladder
TWO = 1 gallon Ziplock Freezer Bag

The ziplock bag can also be used for other purposes (waterproofing your phone during a storm; protecting your map while getting home; etc).

Balancing redundancy with practicality takes patience and experience.



LONG LIVE THE YARD!

I really like this thread.

All my "GO" lists have specific categories of items:

#1. pack & packing materials
#2. food / water / preparation / purification / fire
#3. shelter / sleeping / clothing / hygiene
#4. navigation / light / communication / fire
#5. utility / tools / fire / special
#6. utility / self-defense
#7. first-aid / medical / fire / water purification

Our lists are quite similar. I wonder if I should post in detail.

I need to hook up my printer now, get this all down on paper so I can take it with me to the store when I start prepping.

Skunk Hunter asked about a small pouch for a "PSK" so I pulled out my "Hiking Belt Order" or "Hiking PSK". These items are on me at all times while in the woods. This allows me to leave my ruck in camp while using the restroom, or whatever (while retaining a degree of security). You'll see a lot of the same products as in my GHB, because I've found that these items WORK!
