Nomadic Survival

A Listmania! list by Anders Blom
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "This list is not for "bugging out", it is tailored more towards mass exodus. Most bug out bags are set up to do one thing: retreat. They don't allow you to sustain on a longer term, only to get you from point A (a once secure location, now unsecure) to point B (a known secure location). This list is for the time when there isn't a point B, when there is no known location for refuge.

Rules:
1) Be prepared. It's better to have something and not need it than to need it and not have it. This goes for information as well, learn your skills, practice them, and keep quality sources of advanced knowledge at hand.
2) Keep consumption down. Don't depend on consumable items and resources.
3) Time, distance, and shielding. Whatever your enemy is - whether nuke or angry hoard, put distance and mass between you and it, and do it for as long as possible.

I have at least ten Listmania lists (and growing) about survival and the many different approaches to it. Check out my "Economical EDC Survival Kit" and my "Every Day Carry - EDC" lists."

The list author says:
  "This is for all you Zombie Lovers out there. Defending yourself from an unsuspected aggressor or clearing a path in vegetation. Make sure you get a belt frog for this. This is very impressive for the price, I'm a big dude, and this hasn't nicked or bent, and the handle hasn't split either. Use gloves or a tight wrap."
