I just wanted to add one comment about the roll of quarters. I also carry one in my bag, but not for pay phones since I don't count on finding one if I need it anymore. I carry them for vending machines. I know dollar bills will work, but I've seen too many cases where dollar bills don't work but coins do(at least this happens 90% of the time where I work).

I don't know how much use it would be for others since it requires some practice but i ALWAYS carry a sling in my pocket. ( growing up in the Blue Ridge all of us kids used to hunt with them.) but they can do some serious damage to a human in a pinch. get one that can be taken apart though. in some places i think they are illegal.

I carry Glucogel and a lot of High Carb energy bars. They're not for me, but for my 12 year old who is a Type 1 diabetic. I can get his blood sugar down for short periods of time without insulin, but it is really hard to get his numbers elevated without carbs.

I actually carry a small section of wood board. 3/4 inch thick,about 6-8 inches long. It is very old floor planking,cedar or pine I think. I can shave it with my knife for very fine tinder,or cut a little deeper for more course curlies.I can split a bunch of thin kindle sticks off it.The stuff is so dry,it starts easy with a match.Saves a lot of time when its getting dark out,and I don't want to go foraging for bits of twigs and such to get a fire going.Just have to find bigger stuff.

Even if you don't "wear" the panties I foresee many uses for them, a much finer filter than many materials, if you have a blister, the smooth silky material would fill in for moleskin, the synthetic materials seem to burn better than many natural products so use it as firestarter, use as a patch to fix your socks etc...

I've just added a collapsible [dog] water bowl to my pack; it rolls up quite small, holds a quart of water and weighs very little.

Anywhere.
I have very fine, almost indiscernible hair on my legs and barely any in my armpits. What I do have is light to medium red.

Shaving in a SHTF situation is a ludicrous idea anyway.
When you think of the possibility of infections/rashes/etc, why risk it for vanities sake? My lingerie won't endanger my life. A mis-swipe with a razor while shaving ones armpit could.

OOooOOOoohh..
I like the idea of the balloons! I hadn't thought of that.
Sweet idea, definitely adding some to my backpack!
