Ok. We’re building a survival backpack. A GO bag, just in case you need to run out the house fast. What would you need?
Water bottles, compact food sources (granola bars, snacks), sewing kit, duct tape, fishing line, bandages and alcohol/neosporin, utility knife, a charged battery pack (or 2), warm socks, undies, gloves, baby wipes, toothpaste and toothbrush. (Feminine products if you’re still getting your period.) Hair ties, ain’t finna have hair whipping like Mulan. And matches in a plastic baggie so they don’t get wet. Ohhh, some empty trash bags or plastic bags. Might need to lay on the ground or cover your head.
I wouldn’t want the backpack to be too heavy, but we should be able to get thru a day.
My friend said get things you can barter that ppl will need or want. Like a dozen small bottles of alcohol or coffee, maybe candy or. cigarettes. Stuff that ppl will trade.
A friend on FB said,
“Now let me start by saying that my mind is militarized and I think like a Soldier.
- First thing in a kit is force protection measures. Otherwise you are building a kit to be taken. You have to protect yourself.
- Always remember the foundation of survival. The 5 Cs of Survivalability. Cover, Cutting Tool, Containers, Combustion tool and Cordage. Use that to prioritize how you build your kits. Having those on lock drastically increases your chances of surviving the elements, which is your biggest enemy.”
