My wife,my 2 sons. m1a,k-bar,h2o filter
Jerry I am digging that Sawyer water filter. Very cool setup and .1 microns. Cool.5. Sawyer Point Zero Two Absolute 4-liter water purification system – will purify and carry water
water container (hopefully filled) and water filter
dehydrated food, spork and something to boil water in
some sort of shelter say a tarp or small tent
firestarting stuff (matches/lighter) and maybe my cooker
22lr rifle and ammo
A) May I respectfully suggest you get away from the CHARCLOTH idea, and B) what is the Scout 10 essentials please?I've done this before, camped on 10 items or less. Problem is IDK from what you said whether this is winter, summer, for how long, etc. So I'm assuming around a week to month.
1)Knife, pick one of my many knives, probably my Geber LMF II
2)Firesteel I'm assuming my fatwood shaving and charcloth tinder box is included
3)My 1qt GI canteen w/ metal cup (Again assuming it's included in it goes in with the canteen anyways)
4)550 Cord, so many many uses; snare (using the smaller cord), fishing line, helping build a shelter (can do it without the cord but it helps ), can be used in making a firebow, etc
Wow I'm actually having trouble getting past basic stuff I need, you can get by with those four things...
I'm gonna have to to some more thinking before I finish this, but the 10 essentials theory I learned in Boy Scouts comes to mind.
