"I always keep this knife either in my back pocket or my front pocket. You can never go wrong with a good sharp pocket knife. I love the CRT Triumph because of its assisted opening. They come razor sharp and can be used one handed if necessary."
"Get a 426D (have to get this somewhere else since they are no longer made). The 426D is a three burner and has a great middle burner. If you cannot get a 426D get this 2 burner dual fuel. The greatness of dual fuel is that if you can't find coleman fuel you can burn unleaded gas."
"Much like the Coleman dual fuel stove this lantern is dual fuel as well. The pros are the same - you can use Coleman fuel or unleaded gas. I have five and they have never given me a bit of trouble. They put out about 80 watts of light and give off a good amount of heat as well."
"My advice for coms is to be a Ham Radio operator. If you decide that this isn't the route for you then you need some type of information to the outside world. Assuming that the zombies have not taken over the whold world you will have reports from time to time and this is a great radio."
"Love the MSR water filter. You can go with a Katadyn Pocket Water Microfilter but it is a lot more expensive and the filter is breakable. I have used the MSR in Israel as well as Africa and have had no ill effects."
"Can't beat a blast match for when the strike anywhere matches get wet. Get some tinder that is dry and in a moment you will have a great fire going. I have had mine for years and it shows but it is still starting fires if I need to."
"I have a cornucopia of #10 cans in Mountain House freeze dried food. It has no moisture so it is free of virus, bacteria, or other bugs. It is very easy to make (all you have to do is add boling water - and let's face it, if you can't boil water then you probably will not make it though the ZA)."
"Be sure and get the bow ahead of time and practice with it often. I like Eastman XX75 shafts. Be sure and get a variety of points (broadheads, field tips, small game heads such as a judo point or rubber points). Also get some great sights to go on the Matthews. You might want to check out the Switchback."
"We have to prepare for both winter and summer as well as extremes in between. This is a great heater that could mean the difference between being cold all night long or warm. Be sure and get Kerosene (the oderless kind is the most expensive but IMHO the best)."
"You can make your own bread can't you? No? What are you going to do when the zombie apocalypse hits and the shelves are out of bread in a moments notice. This is a great mill, it makes some noise and you have to read the instructions (imagine that)."
"You need a pressure cooker (something to shorten cook time and thereby save on fuel) as well as a pressure canner (two different items). The latter can be used to sterilize medical and dental instruments as well as preserve foods."
"You need to be able to navigate with map and compass. This was my first one that I learned land nav with and it is good. Get a set of Ranger beads and learn how to use them in conjunction with a map."
