care for your teeth
Since my chemistry teacher in
high school told us that most toothpastes CAUSE
decay, I have never since then used any of it.
Moreover, fluoride (hydrofluorosilicic acid) is a
very harmful substance that can eat through metal

For A Few Days --
do HUNTERS, BACKPACKERS, & RAFTERS
carry in their Survival Kit?
The more you know,
the less gear you must bear! A long distance
bugout bag (BOB), for travelling far, should weigh
less than thirty pounds, for someone of middle
strength and endurance. Just keep travelling,
drink enough water to stay bewatered, and eat only
enough to enable you to move onward.
I attend to my
survival kit monthly, to insure the good state of
each item of gear therein.
Whenever I hunt, I
have toilet paper.
Level -- blanket, poncho, and a knife

Our best tool for survival is our own knowledge,
and practicing our skills.
There are 3
considerations, for making fire
-- matches or source of flame, tinder, and
knowhow. Having a kit is a beginning, but being
able to use the kit takes practice aforehand.
In Mine. This is a basic kit.
PRACTICE must be added, practice in using the
items. Have 2 kits, one never gets opened, and
the other one for practicing. That is the
recommendation of Maharaj Ji, never touch the

If you use plastic bottles, be
sure that they are PETE or PET, or else there
is, or could be, contamination from the bottle
itself. Usually the type of plastic is
embossed on the botham of the bottle.
Try to get intel on the
whereabouts whereto you will be goin, to know
what the sources there, of water, might be,
and to what extent contaminated.
Farther you are into the wilds,
more water you will be safe in bearin with
matches. Either carry tinder, or know
how to find and make tinder where you will be

I like to use the Military Survical Manual as a
reference. It is not a book that you can carry
arround, but it is pretty useful and enjoyable
A great reference is FM 21-76. It
is the military Survival manual. Not something
you can pack when you're on foot, but it's a
great reference and kind of fun to read. It has
improved a lot since my first copy. I teach my
son a few things out of the manual each time we
go camping. He thinks we're just doing cool
Good first aid kits that are light and complete
for the non-medical person are Adventure Medical
Kits -- google them -- many variations to fit
#1...always...some way of making
fire..... I have a magnesium bar with a flint
striker. I also have a Zippo and a Bic lighter.
#2. A multi-purpose Victorex Swiss Army knife.
Do not buy a cheap copy. The bigger the better.
You never know what kind of tool you will need.
#3. Something that can be used as a tourniquet.
If you have to ask then you should not be in the
#4. A compass and a good set of maps for the
area where I am going. Screw a GPS unit. That
only tells you where you are and not what is
between that and where you want to go. Also the
batteries run out at the worst time.
t#5. A cell phone and/or 5 watt hand held Walkie
talkie. It is much easier to call for help than
to walk for it.
#6. A good first aid kit. 1-2 POUNDS of
stuff.... Consider spending the extra money and
get some HEMCON packs to stop serious bleeding.
Lastly, a damn good hand gun and ammo. Right
now, I carry a Ruger Alaskan with 45 Colt in
1,2, 6, and 454 Casull in 3, 4, 5. The Colts are
for dangerous primates and the Casulls are for

climate of your outin here is my list
Compact sleeping bag
Backpack and small day pack
warm gloves and lightweight gloves
flashlight and extra batteries
watter bottles (3-2 1 liter bottles)
Nylon, Polyster, wool clothing (NO COTTON)
personal first aid kit (minor scrapes)
rain gear (poncho or heavier)
Pillow (small camp pillow)
spork and bowl
Survivor man is a pussy. All scripted
situations. Camera crews if he gets into
trouble. Survivor is a joke. Notice the candy
wrappers. I did USAF survival training and boy
did that deer taste good. (beat it to death
with a stick!)
You can survive with out food and water for
a couple of days, but if the weather is
questionable then you cannot survive without
shelter. I would pack an emergency blanket and
tools to use in building a shelter.
I have a first aid kit, small axe, military
shovel, blanket (in a ziplock bag) rain
poncho, Swiss Army knofe and Leatherman
I mostly hunt in Wisconsin, Illinois, and
South East Alaska.
I carry my survival gear in various places,
around my neck, pockets and in a bag. But
what's in the bag pretty much stays the same
no matter where I am, I might remove or add
different items depending on place.
If I am at a place where I can't see my car,
I'll take these items:
Around my neck:
On me or in pockets:
Toilet paper (also used to start a fire)
A Candle (simpler to hold than a lighter)
A Knife kit
A smallspace blanket
A full-sized space blanket
It seems heavy, but only weighs around ten
Mostly I hunt from treestands, miles or at
least hundreds of yards away from people. If I
happen to fall from the stand, I want to have
the necessary items on me, just in case I
break a limb.
Wire for snares
Water purifying tablets
Flint & Steel
In Alaska, I hunted on the islands. If it
rained or looked like it would, I made sure to
take a road flare, if I had to signal a boat
from the shore. I also could use it to start a
fire with wet wood.
Alaska has an exremely mountainous terrain,
while Wisconsin and Illionois have a thick
undergrowth, but the hills are smaller or
flatter. I mainly hunt deer, nd have held on
to everything all day without trouble.
Drinking the water throughout the day lessens
I hunt in the day and return in the dark. A
GPS and medical tape are absolutely necessary.
I use a small pack with large bladder that I
keep in my GPS and batteries, food, coldpacks,
shells, tape, camera, keys, bags, wetnaps,
paper towels, and rope in without it feeling
too heavy. The bag is designed to distribute
the weight around your chest, waist, and
houlders and things do not move around too
For food, I get chicken breasts in barbecue
sauce packaged in foil from the local grocery
store. If you can check out an Indian grocery
store, you might be able to pick up more food
in foil packages, the only downside for me is
that it is mostly vegetarian.
its a matter of preference i prefer to keep
it small a magnesium bar, knife, chocolate
bar, and some 550 cord natures got the rest.
but take what u prefer maybe a flashlight or a
wire saw. if u go on-line us should be able to
find a pilot or sas survival tin witch has all
kinds of retarded things and its only as big
as a sardine can (u can use the can for
cooking 2) a map would also behoove u
Insect repellent wipes
Fishing Line and hooks
Most of the things are interchangeable so
they can be used for a variety of things. You
can always add or subtract, but when hiking,
camping or canoeing (like we do) we ALWAYS
carry this kit. It's lightweight and easy to
carry. We usually double bag and put a tennis
ball in just in case it goes over the side of
the canoe. Then it floats!!
My Kit includes:
Two self-made fire starters
AAA maglite and extra batteries
Emergency Mylar Blanket
100& DEET (in summer)
If you pack it all the right way, it will fit
into a one quart Nalgene bottle, but I store
mine in a little nylon pouch.
I put toilet paper in a ziploc bag, but I do
not think it's necessary for survival
I usually pack more than this based on where
and when I'm goin somewhere, but these are the
basics. My survival kit can go from my day to
multi day pack, and then my ski pack and my

Tin Can- boiling water
You will need a
backpack or fanny pack with the typical
survival items inside, including material to
build a fire: matches that are water-proof, a
lighter, or a kit with fire starting
materials. A fire will warm you, let you call
for aid, boil water that needs to be
decontaminated, and for drinking and cooking.

Matches (2 boxes)
Poncho (bright orange to attract attention)

Garbage Bags (2 large size bags)
Bright orange surveyor's tape
Dental floss (It's strong and useful as thread
for sewing, or a fishing line or for lashing
branches for improvised shelters.)
Wire (baling wire)
Mountain House food
Along with fire,
you have to build a shelter
for protection. Shelter can be constructed
from some trash bags, items in the wood, or a
painter's tarp that is plastic. Lean-to
shelters are good when constructed from some
branches, sticks, trash bags, and tarp.
thing to take with you is string. You can use
it to bind branches and construct a shelter. A
fishing pole can be made with string placed at
a stick's end. Also, build
a snare, and try to catch
dinner. Jute or sisal is a tough, but light
string that is cheap and readily available in
Also helpful, a
multi-use tool or a knife. You can find sticks
anywhere, but branches from Evergreen or Cedar
trees are useful in constructing a shelter.
Use a knife that is sharp to sharpen some
sticks as support for your shelter or fishing.
tools contain a knife blade. These are good,
but a sharper, and lengthier blade is better
in situations for survival. A single
shaft steel knife, that is
six inches will allow cutting of bigger
pieces.Things like pliers, silverware and can
openers also come with pocket tools.
Food and water

foods will help with
survival. Stay healthy with the protein that
you need can be obtained from dry meats like
jerky. Peanut butter, easily storable and full
of protein is also good.
If you want to
stay warm, even when wet, wool is a good
option. It is helpful to have wool socks,

Survival Guide" by John 'Lofty' Wiseman
Many of the
readily available sources of water in the wild
are not safe for drinkin. The best lookin
streams are probably contamintated with items
that may cause dehydration or intestinal
problems. For this reason, clean water is a
big problem for those needing to survive in
the wilderness. Here are two methods of
purifyin drinkin water:
Boiling is the
first method; the second is by chemicals. You
can also filter the water, but that may leave
certain agents that cause sickness. Tablets to
purify water are found at most outdoor or
camping stores. Another way to purify is usin
chlorine bleach: add eight drops for one
gallon of water.
Also, you can
purify water without boilin for even a minute!
Heating water to
a rollin boil to remove any contaminants that
are organic. A temp of 180°F will kill remove
all contaminants, by the time the water
reaches the boilin point of
212°F you can know that it is pure.
You do not have
to boil water for five, ten, or tewnty
minutes, once the boilin point is reached,
your water is pure, so there is no need to
To get the oxygen back in your
water, pour it from one container to another.
You can also use cloth like a t-shirt or bandana
to filter out larger particles.
Here is that, which you will
discover, in our maritime department, below:
Here are 2, of the biggest
secrets to survival at sea:
1. God has given, to us, a
technique of flotation, that does not need
equipment, and that does not expend energy,
the way that treadin water does. It is called
"The Fish Pose". There is a version with the
legs crossed, and that version keeps our face
above water effortlessly.
The fish pose must be
practiced. Here are the directions: cross your
legs in the lotus position, stretch back your
head as far as possible, and put your hands
upon your feet. The heel, of each foot, rests
upon the front, opposite thigh. Elbows are to
2. Does the skin absorb
water? There is a superficial barrier against
absorbtion of water, which can be washed away
by bein in water for a while.
Some say that only the
epidermis absorbs the water, that it does not
go into the body any more deeply. Others say
that in a mineral-rich water, such as sea
water, the pores would absorb water. I don't
know. It may be that immersion in the sea, for
a while, might supply some water to the body.

A simple sea survival kit is a
pack of tools and supplies that will aid in an
crisis. They include supplies that will
provide a human being with
keep them warm,
provide them with food,
and first aid needs,
signal to rescuers
and help them in finding
their way back.
An elementary survival kit
When you are usin an electronic
or mechanical equipment check its operation and
make sure that it functions. All gear should be
fitted with a lanyard because you can not afford
to lose anything during an crisis. All the gear
have to be packed in water-proof light-weight
When you are lost the first
thing you will need is a compass to show you the
direction and your way to safety. So a good
compass with adjustable declination, sextant,
platforms, waterproof charts and charting tools
is very important. Take some waterproof papers
A handheld GPS unit that is
waterproof will be useful in guiding you by
showing your position and the nearby shore where
you can reach safely. As it is electronic tools
check it before you start your journey and pack
Fresh water is essential for
your survival and you have to pack enough water
to keep you through the crisis period. Pack
water in sturdy watertight compriseers with
screw-on caps. PET or PETE plastic is much to be
preferred, as it does not leach harmful
chemicaux into your water.
During an emergency your
appetite may possibly be suppressed initially
but in cold climate you will need more energy to
keep yourself warm. Therefore you will need more
food. Energy bars, sweets and some dried food
can help you in an emergency. Chewable
multi-vitamins can be taken as they will help
you get energy.
Safety vests can keep you
afloat if you are thrown in the waters. You can
keep floating till someone can come to your
Flashlights are important
signaling devices and you can select fully
submersible scuba style lights which are more
waterproof than traditional flashlights. It is
not needed to sign with the momentary pushbutton
switch of the flashlight. Just moving the light
off the aim point is as effective.
Pick fishing kits with
stainless steel hooks and take plenty of hooks
as they get easily lost. If you are lost in the
water for a long time fish will be your primary
food and you have to survive by eating them.
You will need sturdy well oiled
leather gloves with non-slip grips that can
withstand immersion in water. They will shield
your hands when fishing and undertaking other
chores which could possibly cause injury.
Even in hot climates you will
feel cold in the night so it is better to pack
an extra set of clothes. Sunburns are dangerous
adequate to threaten your life and it is
advisable to take shade hats, sun glasses and
waterproof sunscreen. If you are sensitive to
the sunlight then it is better to take sunscreen
in your survival kit.
A medical kit,
and individualal hygiene
should also be included in the
sea survival gear list. The list is endless but
make sure that all these products are of good
quality as most of the kits that come with the
boats are of cheaper excellent.
