Bowie Knife
Fire starter

I don't like not having my knife on me and it can be very handy. I won't always feel like wasting strength on trying to make a fire or have the will to do so especially after a long day. The fire-starter would make it so much easier. I could scavenge for clothes later and even if it's in the winter I usually wear enough clothes to keep warm so I would take my backpack for storage.

A swiss army knife, a flashlight, and a lighter. I can cut up some meat, see in the dark, and keep my self warm while cooking my food.

I think it really matters where you're going to be. I'm in Cleveland, Ohio and these are the items I would grab in any seasonal condition.
Anyone say Duct tape yet!?
1. Duct tape
2. Knife
3. Magnesium Stick
... just until things cooled down

I've been thinking about the whole living under a garbage bag or tarp idea and I have to say that a small tent is sounding a lot more like decent shelter to me.
1st item is a small tent.
2nd item needs to be able to start a fire in all conditions, many times over... so I'll choose a flint.
3rd item needs to be a good quality knife. A Bowie or something similar.

This is simple:
(1) S.O.G. Utility tool (MUCH better than SWISS, Leatherman, or Gerber)
(2) Multi-purpose hatchet (Preferably one with a shovel attachment too)
(3) Bottle of water purification tablets

- Fire is really easy to make if you understand and know how to use the "bow" method.
- You can make most things you really need straight from nature, IE. bowls, cups, traps, killing instruments, rope/twine
- Everything else is just comfort stuff. The hardest part would be if I was stuck doing this in the winter. I would sacrifice the water purification tabs for some heavy blankets. That would be the only compromise I would make. Once I get to where I would be heading, I would start making a large bowl to boil water in... water-borne illnesses fixed.

(Make sure, if something does happen, that you know where you are heading. Read up on the area, learn about the local flora and fauna; otherwise, you could end up eating something that can kill you or make you really sick.)

S&F to you.
I would carry my daughter in one arm, my son in the other, and my dog on my back. I wouldn't worry about surviving; because I'd know with them with me "We go together or not at all"

Just want to give you a heads up. The M4 is a slightly wider .22 caliber round. I would HIGHLY suggest, if taking a gun, a scoped and zeroed 308. The range and accuracy, plus stopping power, really can't be beat for the weight and price.

AVOID at all costs the M16, AR15, M4 type guns. Anything that fires a 5.56 mm (Fed .223) is a bad choice. The round is too fast, and has little stopping power because of this. Go subsonic rounds, and make them hollow-points. Better stopping power, and most importantly, killing power.

I would say, Fishing line, my bush knife, and possible some needles. Other than that I would probably stuff my pockets with as much cotton and tobacco I could, then fill my hat with a sewing kit, triangular wraps, and some asprin.
