I thought I'd run-down a list of supplies one might need in an emergency or survival situation. Mind you, this is not meant to have you set for an
idefinite period (at least as far as rations go). Please add your thoughts/items to the list - it may help me (and everyone else) out!
strike anywhere matches
mylar emergency blanket(s)
wool or cotton blanket(s)
flashlight - the kind you shake to get a charge
batteries for all items which need them
1-3-days full rations of MREs per person
3-5 days of "ration bars" per person
compact shovel (fixed)
compact shovel (folding)
locking folding-blade knife
"Swiss Army" knife
road map of the area
topographical map of the area
paper and pen/pencil
First Aid kit, bandages, etc.
water purifying tablets and/or device
currency - paper, precious metals, gemstones
sealable, see-though plastic tub
Any other items??..
