The list author says: "with my experience (excuse my spelling, its awful) ive realized that when it comes down to it heavy gear and trying to either -live of the land or -escape or survive in the woods, is the worst possible scenarios you could ever be in. they are cold, wet, uncomfortable and all around miserable. keep reading for my views, i believe in long term prepperation(email me and il explain it more) so with this stuff im planning on not being recued, teaming up with some people is different, probably will do that. but this is not for 3 days and hope to be saved. its for self sufficiancy.
one topic i wrote about but then had to delat is knowing usefull skills. trust me when i say i know quite a few, email me for those too. ........... really i had ALOT more to say but 2000 charecters :/ if you have any questions or ideas email me at
"any type of large pack works fine, mine weighs roughly 65lbs, because i have GOOD food in ther not dryed beans. you dont want those. but you also want a good comfortable backpack. ive found mountainsmiths to be very reliable and comfortable."
"i use this as my main survival knife now, i decided to try it out(because it was gerber) and it was awesom! it has its own fire steel and its razor sharp and keeps its edge, the sheath is really nice to."
"please do not just buy this one. this is for the topic if your not huge into guns, compound bows are an awesome alternative, try and get a hoyt, there reaal nice. and practice practice practice! nice and silent to so you wont wake the whole neighborhood when something jumps at you. get carbon arrows too(or atleast when you get good enough)"
"by god these are the main investment. they cost so damn much! but there sooo good! ive seen people on shows say they'll bring like bags of rice and coast gaurd food. i've done that. it is the worst stuff in the world. and you need toooooons of water to sustain it and your dehydration after you eat it. these weigh more too :/ , but believe me it will be worth it."
"get a good belt, put a handgun, some mags and your knife on it. because if you have to ditch your bag and carry what you already have on you, you would have your gun knife and if its the knife above then a fire starter."
"not sure if your a shoe guy or boot guy(or gal) but get a nice comfortable pair that you could wear for up to 60 miles a day(kind of an exaggeration but you know what i mean), i have these and they are WONDERFUL! just dont twist your ankle."
"get this. if your anywere where there used to be people then there will be dead bodies. and dead stuff smells. bad. this blocks all stench and if the scenario involves a airbourne pathogen this is rated for diseas particles. wear this under neat it too. (next item down)"
