Never knew that stuff existed.
Just as anything else though, it's about making due with what you have at hand.
You can find substitutes for everything.

That's not always true in my experience.
But there are things that are just the best you can have.

I'm feeling there is no substitute for somethings.
Like things like kevlar for some
Someone you can truly trust.
A perfect location.
A fun filled day.
A positive attitude.
The ability to compromise.
To be inventive and creative.
A positive nature
Self motivation

I'm sure the absolute minimum is derived from within... It has to be.

I mean that in regards to supplies.
Kevlar can be replaced by simple cordage or wire.
I know that Kevlar is unmatched in strength, but how did anyone get by before it?
That's my point.
Of course there are no substitutes fro good times and good friends etc....

Come on now, you can't think I meant that.
Do you?

Not at all reticledc, that's not what my post was about.

The underlying thing about survival and your OP was and always will be society,environment and the nature of people. How we interact.

Step back for a moment and ponder what civilization and technology has done for us and to us as humans in general and our ability to communicate effectively in A positive way with each other.

Reflect upon the reason you wanted create this thread in the first place.

Four magnets,Four coils,something moving and what do I get ?

If you and I or anybody else end up on the same acre of land at same time in a sitx or shtf situation what's going end result you think ?

This thread is about "absolute minimum", one of the words was "tactics".

I think we need these words: Trust,Honesty,Respect,Compassion, Altruism, all the positive aspects of humanity really.

Whats the difference between a survivalist and criminal ?

Who's fence is that ...and how you react to that fence.

Remember that saying... A stranger is A "FRIEND" you haven't met yet.
I wonder what the actual percentage of strangers that's valid for these days.

That was pretty funny.

A sense of humor is definitely on my list of absolute minimum.
