I was kinda hoping for a post on what people were saving for more of a long term situation. Kinda of like the matches thread. People wouldn't take 10 boxes of matches on a camping trip. I'm still working on my list but I will post it by Monday.

Long term, like we talking like 30+ days. I would toss in a few ramen noodles and a tent. other then that what I have ready to go would do. Also my 22lr will put meat on the table. Remember each packet of noodles contains 2 servings. so 1 pak would last a day. Maybe toss in a few hooks and small enough cord to thread threw it to catch a fish or two. wouldnt be a bad idea and would take up any real space.

I always try to carry a small kit with me for that unexpected situation. In that kit would be 3 ways to start fire, (waterproofed matches, lighter, Magnesium stick, magnifying glass, etc.). Some sort of blade (small pocket knife, razor blade, etc.). Water gathering stuff (large black garbage bags, reynolds turkey sized cooking bags, aluminum foil). Some fishing gear (hooks, line, sinkers). And some sort of light (small LED flashlight, candle, cottons balls soaked in Vaseline and then wrapped in aluminum foil) The latter, after putting the cotton ball into a pouch/bindle wrapping of aluminum foil, you can cut an X in the top side of the pouch and pull up some of the cotton ball into a wick like form. Then light the tip of the cotton ball. The cotton ball will burn in this format for about 45 mins to an hour. I have tried three with an average burn time of 50-55 minutes. Use real cotton balls and any type of petroleum jelly. GPS, and at least two compasses. Pencil and paper.

For a longer stay, knowing before hand that I was going to be out for a while, I would bring a good knife, axe, water filtration system, some sort of permanent shelter material (tarp, rope, duct tape). I would also bring cooking stuff such as Dutch oven, cooking spoon, cooking gloves. One thing I have seemed to overlook each time I go camping is a good shovel. That would be one thing that would be good for ground shelter building, fire maintaining, latrine building, etc.

Might be easier to just hook up the ol camp trailer, lol.

Just my thoughts.

Traveling light eh Shawn?:D

I see you mentioned a kayak, I had a Wilderness System Tarpon 120 till about 3 months ago,...fixing to get a Liquid Logic Manta Ray 10 or 12 footer just as soon as I make it to North of Houston to the dealer and compare how they paddle. I've heard nothing but good about them. Yaks are surprizingly fast for a paddle powered craft,....fun too. Great for stealth fishing.

I'm new to kayaking but I'm starting to read up on it. And if I had to get out of the city and had no gas a kayak would be perfect. Alright I talked myself into buy one.

Kayaking is one of my favorite hobbies. Granted I am needing to get a new kayak, as I haven't had one in years. My recomendation is get one that fits what you will be using it for, and one that has a water tight compartment in the back.

OK I just got back from 8 weeks in the Idiho Mtns. This might be a bit off topic but I'll stick it here anyway. We traveled by horse sometimes but mostly via PU truck. In the truck we had heaps of stuff. HD sleeping bags, some with matresses. Large bore pistols and rifles and knives, lots of knives (more knives than people). Axes, saws, Field glasses, tarps, extra deisel for fire starter. Chains, straps, ropes. HiLift Jacks, Lots of water. Food, of course. Whiskey was concidered an essential (for snake bite). Heaps of snakes everywhere you looked, haha! A 2-way radio (usless in the canyons). Spare tires (10 and 12 ply only). Large first-aid Kit containing empty wiskey bottle! 3 or 4 young cowboys if boulders or trees offered resistance to the truck's foward progress! Of course each man had his own small kit that was in his pockets and that was his own business. The basic carry kit consisted of 2 cans of snuff, a pistol and 2 knifes and a fire starting kit, maybe some duct tape and a multi-tool. None of these boys would think twice about busting down a small tree for shelter and a fire or dropping a fawn for a meal if they were stuck in a bad spot! Essentialy survival was a group project, the group might be seperated by distance during the work day but everyone knew they would not be abandoned. If a man was injured and could survive 24 hours he would be found because the boss man would know the area he was in and would not leave untill he was found. The boss would call in search and rescue ASAP if necessary. Having a boss man that stayed with the truck, asighned work tasks and kept track of each man's general location plus an agreed upon time of return for the work crew was propably the best survival tool in our kit.

My plan for any type of survival situation is essentially the same. I have an ALICE pack with the following:
10 x 12 tarp
50' 550 paracord
small roll baling type wire
numerous lighters
waterproof matches
two compasses, one of which has a whistle and flint on the side
multi-purpose knife
dagger
bowie type knife
laminated survival how-to articles to jog my memory
Extra tent stakes
two small flashlights with extra batteries
two changes of clothing
custom designed first aid kit
one roll TP in plastic baggie
metal fork and spoon
wire saw
P38 can opener
two five gallon mylar water bags
two sternos with burner
folding shovel
hatchet
pens and pad of paper
small sewing kit
two ponchos
water purification tablets
small pry bar

Things to add to this pack:
sharpening stone
fishing kit
snare wire

Close by the ALICE Pack is my tent, the ammo bag, machete, 12 gauge, .40, and .270, military arctic rated sleeping bag with pad, and the rubbermaid with a couple days supply of food and accessories, eight more mylar water bags, extention cord, bleach, and other stuff I can't remember off the top of my head.

My plan is to be flexible and mobile.

Check out Calcium Hypochlorite
1 level teaspoon will make 2 gallons of chlorine bleach stock-----------
16 drops per gallon of water for purified drinking water.
You can find it at pool supply stores in 1 lb. bags for about $3.00.
You need 78% as the junk at wal-mart won't do it.

Shawn, I'm glad you posted all that gear. I thought my list would be too excessive, but here it goes... A CFP 90 pack with detachable patrol pack, fleece sleeping bag,emergency blanket,inflateable pillow,hammock,shovel,hatchet,wyoming saw,fire starting bag (with matches,flint,lighters,vasaline, cotton balls,steel wool fire starting sticks),shake up flash light, radio that is crank,battery, or solar powered, first aid kit, bathroom kit, rain suit, K-bar knife, sharpening stone, para cord, duct tape, snare wire, sewing kit, sterno fuel, folding sterno stove, rope, 100 oz hydration pack bladder, iodine crystals, compass, binoculars, mess kit, tin cup,bowl and plate, cloths line reel, towel, bug spray.


In the patrol pack I put food and more water. strapped to the outside of the pack I have a self inflating mat, wool blanket, and tent. If I bring exrta cloths, put them in a duffle bag. The whole pack feels heavy to just pick up, but once on my back it doesn't feel like much.

I have a Victorinox multitool on my belt. If I need to be armed, I would also have a rifle, pistol and ammo. I'm sure when I get older, I won't be able to handle such a load, for now I can, so I do.
