    Does anyone know of an AM/FM radio that will fit in the mouth of a 32 ounce water bottle? I would like to put together a water bottle survival kit. There are a number of threads on the topic, but I have not found anything that includes a micro am/fm radio.

    My PSK is the core system of the two bags that I use, my Wilderness Bag and my Go & Get Home Bag. Designed to be easily moved from bag to bag as needed, or carried on its own. If not in a pack, my PSK is designed to be a belt carry system. When I drop my pack, the PSK goes on the belt. I have a...

    Hello all, So I am in China for the next eleven months. It is wise to plan for the worst and hope for the best. Being said, in a serious thought. What would be ideal for a RTH "Return to Home" bag for a overland hike from lower mainland China to East Coast Europe. I have no plans on...

    So awhile ago I purchased a small survival kit to supplement my hiking gear, but I started thinking on the true effectiveness or value of it to my pack. It is a premade kit - the Adventure Medical Kits Pocket Survival Pak (http://tinyurl.com/dx65jza). The kit was designed by Doug Ritter, and...

    I've been working on my family's GHBs and was wondering about the water. I plan on buying metal bottles for the packs, but can I put plastic bottles already containing water in there? I've heard the bottles leak the plastic (or something like that) if they're left in the heat of your car. That's...

    May sound like a "Public Service Announcement" but its time to start thinking about winter and in-vehicle winter survival kits again... Environment Canada is calling for a colder/snowier winter than normal in western Canada (La Nina effect) and this likely extends down into the mid-west USA. We...

    I really would like input here regarding a TDP. I plan to use a medium Alice pack with frame as my bag. I plan to keep this bag in my vehicle. So it will be exposed to summer heat and winter cold. Summer heat here is mid to upper 90's and winters get in the low 40's and sometimes freezing...

    Trying to put together a feasible GHB. My scenario: The most common location for me other than home is work. I work on a federal installation that prohibits firearms. I live on one side of Houston. I work on the opposite side. As the crow flies, it is about 35 miles between the two with a...

    I have seen people using their 72 hour kits more as a convenience kit rather than a survival kit. They stuff their 72 hour kit with un-necessary items, which are just good to have and you can easily do without them for few days. I believe the main purpose of emergency kit is to help you survive...

    A couple of weeks ago my uncle and I went out on the Angelina river and did some fishing. While we were out on the river some bad weather came along. The weather was not bad enough for us to seek shelter, but we did steer the boat under some cypress trees to shield us from the rain. As the...

    Before beginning this post, I want to make clear that there is no way I can give credit to everyone whose information helped me in the construction of this idea and kit. However, I can give credit to two of the major sources, Survivalist Boards, and Nutnfancy's video "Concept USK) I have...

    I'm building my first USK (Urban Survival Kit) (Which serves two purposes, the first role is a GHB. The second is to survive in the urban environment for a short term event, which I interpret to be at the shortest 1 hour and at most 7 days. Examples of scenarios in which to use this would be...
