I notice a lot of people all mention guns and ammo, which unfortunately i have none of and would find very hard to obtain in a SHTF situation or even
now to be honest with license regulations in my country.
Even replica weapons that do not work are illegal. As are anything like crossbows,swords, mace spay, anything considered a offensive weapons.
But yes On topic the most useful things i would recommend like nearly everybody else are, Apart from knowledge of survival skills ( which i would
consider THE most important thing ) are. Lots of water and some means of sterilization, e.g. Water purification tablets. Food, also as mentioned ,
High calorie sources , e.g. energy bars, Useful tools and misc items such as - sowing needles and threads, rope, cable ties, glue, tube of silicone
pocket knives, screwdrivers and other small hand tools, binoculars would also be another useful item along with small lightweight batteries.High
Quality bin bags,black bin liners which are waterproof and can be used to carry/store any equipment or supplies you have left. Also consider taking
padlocks and keys although these could be useless,they may come in handy but will have a poor weight to size ratio. Local and Regional maps with
laminated covers, by all means pack a compass.( it may not work if there is any magnetic anomalies,depends on what SHTF really) but you could still
make out any large natural landmarks on a map. i.e rivers streams hills etc. Obviously you would take some sort of Aid kit/Medical supplies,
Sterilizing alcohol,bandages plasters,tweezers, scissors, paracetamol, ibuprofen, anti-biotics ,vitamin tables.eye wash, face mask/dust masks.rubber
gloves. Paper,pads, pens,pencils. Spare Clothes,socks underwear gloves hats scarves.Oh and of course a couple of carry bags and a large rucksack to
try to carry everything.
all this is just my opinion
