And that's it and that's the only thing I need, is this. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray. And this paddle game, the ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need. And this remote control. The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need. And these matches. The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control and the paddle ball. And this lamp. The ashtray, this paddle game and the remote control and the lamp and that's all I need. And that's all I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one - I need this. The paddle game, and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches, for sure. And this. And that's all I need. The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, this magazine and the chair.

Ummm.... well I have a number of items that are a bit unusual.... N95 masks, N100 masks, small tinder and starters, and kind of uncommon, a mattress cover. Twin sized one really tough waterproof plastic, makes a decent emergency bivy if need be, and hopefully never needed but it could double as a body bag in a bind.

I carry a few packets of instant coffee and hot chocolate mix...the 2 mixed together make a nice drink I call MoJo...came up with it while in the service during my field days. It's not much, but if the SHTF...its nice to have something small like that with yah to bring your senses back...most of survival is frame of mind and a hot cup of MoJo makes all the difference IMO. The packets hardly add any weight and fit nicely into the nooks and crannies of your bug out equipment.

A while back I bought a pack of Brinkman Go-LED lights which are essentially small disposable LED puck lights. Never had a use for them so let my two youngens play with them and they just keep going (and I know they leave them on a lot). Recently I was looking for a lightweight way to light my tent and decided to purchase some more and drill two small holes onto each side of the Go-LED and fashioned a hook out of a paperclip. The perfect lightweight and cheap tent light.

A small 4x4 inch notebook with all the best survival info ive gotten out of the survival books (survival evasion recovery,sas manuel ect) along with some handrawn illustrations ,while they are horrible its ok as I can understand them.All sealed in a waterproof ziplock bag.I can easily keep it in my pockets too.People always think they would remember everything from the manuels, and I would like to hope I would too but if not, I have my notebook.

You ever think about copy & paste?? I make card size info with pics from sites. Right click on image and "save as". My printer is also a copier, make copies of manual images. Instead of greeting cards, I make survival cards with my different card programs.

I saw someone has mentioned swim shoes and wanted to share that the Crocs (the really stupid looking things that people wore on their feet for about a year) are great shoes for wading or crossing bodies of water.
They've got a relatively thick rubber sole so your feet shouldnt get cut up on rocks,
they dry in a minute
theyre fairly lightweight and, could be made fairly compact [the folks around this site ought to be rescourceful enough to figure that out]

Again, name of thread is "UNCOMMON items in your pack".



Now if you had said watermelon sized condom, that might have been uncommon.

Two things I carry that I bet not many do.
1. Tea Tree Austrailian Chewing Sticks. Basically tooth pics soaked in tea tree and mint oil. I buy them at the local yuppy health food place. They are great for freshening your breath. As well they burn like a Shave them down and hit them with a spark and they light right up, even after being soaked. I have gone so far as to chew on one for a while, shave it down and it lit right up. That tea tree oil is very flammable.

2. A Physician Alert Card. Most of my back country time is spend hunting and fishing. There are some nasty little bugs, viruses, protozoa and bacteria out there and they can be very hard to identify. This card is carried right behind my DL and one in my survival kit. It says the following:
Physician Alert Card: I may have been exposed to the following:
Zoonotic Diseases: Rabies, Hantavirus, Rocky Mountain Spotted Feaver,Lyme Disease, Q Fever, Plague, Tularemia, Leptospirosis, Brucellosis, Typhus, Arbovirus, Encepholitis, Spircochaetal, Relapsing Fever, Psitticosis, Anthrax, Coccidioidomycosis, Giardiasis, Ascariasis, Cryptosporidium, Hydatid Diseases.

If anyone wants I can try and get some copies uploaded and you can print them laminate them to carry with you.
