not sure if it,s been mentioned but any kind of animal traps will put food on the campfire. Depending where you bugged to, firing a weapon may not be such a good idea.

I'd be interested in getting involved in putting something together, even if if it helps alleviate some of the "What should be in my BOB" posts. Don't get me wrong, I think it's fantastic to see so many interested, but there is so much info in previous posts, well, you know.

On another note, 2 months ago i decided that an addition to my and my wife's BOB would be jump drives. They cost between $15-$25 for a 2gig,
weigh like 1/3 oz. and store huge amounts of info. They can be encrypted, at least enough to stop most from decoding. Manuals, important docs. etc.
Being a father and hubby, I might even have a few photos that I would hate to lose.

Any ideas on the form that this manual would take?

I realize that there's an abundance of information here on the survival forum, but most people simply don't have the time nor the energy to read through the thousands of individual posts. I've done it before, and it's really difficult to digest all the information presented.

A primer or small pocket guide that covers the essentials with an appendices is what I had in mind.

Man your not planning for survival, your just planning on moving to the countryside. You need to lose most of that crap. One major key to survival is the ability to remain mobile and leave no trace of yourself. Learn to make twine and rope from tree bark and animal tendons. Learn to make a lean-to with tree branches. And one major thing is get a bow and learn to hunt with it. People won't be able to find your location when your hunting for food that way.

I understand what your saying, but I have the Wife and two little kids. If it was just me, the list would be much smaller.

I can be fairly mobile by storing the items in plastic bins. Using a tent is also mobile.

Sort of a very extended camping trip until I would find or make something better.

The bow is a good idea.

What you want Sailor is 'Potassium Chorate' ( not potassium nitrate. . . it has 3 time the oxygenation valve )


Thank you, I will look at that. Adding Fe2O3 (Iron Oxide) increases burn approx 2x, with KNO3, I am looking at stuff that would be available "off the shelf", The Potasium Nitrate is found in Stump Remover sold at home depot. 'Potassium Chorate' may be a little harder to come by but I will look at the chemistry, and again thanks for the advice.

I understand the wife and kids thing. I have three kids and wife and we use minimal gear when camping and they love it. Trust me you won't need all that stuff.
