I started looking at it, and realized I was woefully unprepared.
I got enough camping/survival gear, I got water filters and a decent stock of iodine tablets, but my food supply is pretty weak.

Definitely need to start canning/pickling some stuff from my (albeit small) garden, and stocking up on canned goods.
Would prefer to pick up either MRE's or at least dehydrated stuff too.

My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

As far as Mosins go, I got one behind the bedroom door. Even if I run out of ammo it is a supreme warclub.

And don't knock it until you've tried it, apple moonshine is delicious. A guy I know calls his "Apple jack". So smooth you can't even taste the alcohol. Then you try to stand up and realize "Oh,there it is."

Big Lots has cases of water for $2-3 bucks. I get a few cases whenever I go. Also keep a couple gallons in the car, as much for the radiator as for drinking. Might not be a bad idea to get a few bottle of fluids (anti-freeze, transmission, power steering, oil etc) and a gas can in the vehicle.

And what level of purification are you looking for? A few bandanas and some soil can make a pretty effective drip filter, and a few jugs of plain chlorine bleach can disinfect many MANY gallons of water. Ditto for iodine.

I want to get some rain buckets on the ends of the house. Use that mostly for bathing and irrigation so I can keep the bottled stuff for drinking.

Just for the hell of it, I unpacked most of the go-bag and snapped a shot. Let's see.

- Machete
- Ka-Bar
- A couple folders
- Beef Jerky and Summer Sausage. Got some granola bars in there too.
- Paracord
- Boot laces
- Snare Wire
- Multi-tool
- Cyalumes
- Sharpening Stone
- Mineral Oil
- Zippo Fluid
- 3-4 Bandanas
- First Aid Kit in a Band-aid Box (bunch of single-use items like alcohol wipes, single dose meds, etc)
- DK Survival handbook
- 2x Survival mylar blankets
- Survival Kit in a water bottle (Multi-tool, another flashlight, magnesium striker with flint, tinder, another survival blanket, whistle, compass, another small FAK, etc)
- Survival Kit in a sardine can (Razor blade, small fishing kit, a few band-aids, matches, etc)
- Flask of really good whiskey (Knob Creek bourbon right now)

I didn't unpack the tarps, duct tape, wet wiped, waxed floss, LED FLashlight, and water purification tablets. though, It was in the back sleeve of the pack and I didn't notice until I'd snapped the picture. Add that to the jugs of water in the truck and the rest in the house and I'm set to go for a while. Plus I always got a Zippo, knives, etc on me. And some cash. If you are ever near civilization cash is the ultimate survival tool. It can become anything.

I need to remember to toss a few trash bags in there.

damn PW, i am really impressed with how much time, effort and thought you have already put into this. you have a lot of good info. I mean, looking over your lists, you have obviously not just read a lot of survivalist things, but also put them into practice.. thats cool.

I just like the outdoors and adventure. And what was the Scout's motto? Be prepared.

For example, that kit is getting a new bag (probably a Gregory or Osprey internal packframe), maybe a more "packable" survival blade ( Khukuri House's Survival and Savior Khukuri's look particularly promising. ) an Esbit stove or MSR Pocket Rocket, and a solid sleeping system and I'll be backpacking with it. Might add a surplus wool blanket too, they're damn warm.

Been piecing that together here and there and BAM, I ended up with a kit.

EDIT: Today was a bust. I had planned to hit an Archery Pro Shop and get fitted for a nice recurve or Longbow, but by the time I finished running my sister around for her errands, it was getting too late to go. Who asks someone to give them a ride to get something an hour away, then makes them wait until the middle of the afternoon to leave? All I managed to do was check a few pawn shops and pay a few hundred on the credit card.

Oh well, time to hit Cabelas, Sportsmans Guide, and Amazon to see if anything catches my eye.

why would you go for a recurve or longbow versus a compound ? just because of the possible repair and moving parts ? Because i thought compounds get more poundage per shot and are more compact.

Compounds are more compact, have the mechanical advantage of the cams (meaning I can have a 60# draw and less than half that held), and do tend to shoot faster, flatter and more accurately. All major advantages. My second bow will likely be a compound rig.

But with the extreme string angles many have, they require a release, and you need a bow press to restring or service them. Add to that the number of small parts and bearings it takes to make those high-velocity cams work, and what happens if the string comes out of alignment (it's not pretty), and the fact it can shatter wooden arrows, and I'd just prefer the simplicity of a traditional set-up to get started on. All you need is a stick with a string and a few pointy sticks to run through it. Unlike a lot of compounds you can shoot Apache style (3-finger draw). And it has a certain je ne sais quoi.

In a survival situation I too would prefer a recurve, lighter and easier to carry on your back, and less chance of losing arrows.
