My homemade tool that has all the essentials, basics i will need in the woods. The tool has a knife with a saw on top. A 9 inch blade and a magnify
glass in the knife at the base, for starting fires and is threaded at one end to screw into the handle. The knife is polished to a fine shine so that
you can signal with it and it is sooo sharp you can shave with it. The guard has a hammer and a pick at both ends and connects to the handle and the
knife. The handle is a storage space and inside i keep fishing string,hooks,sinkers,tiny bottle of bleach the size of a visine bottle and a fire
starter with lint from the dryer. At the end of the hanle is a compass, but these are not all the attachments, so i would grab this first, because i
usually have it assembled and put in it's leather case like that. That is NO#1 because they are all attached and in it's case. No#1 takes care of
these essentials: Cutting food, killing food, self defense,sawing small trees for shelter, drops of bleach to kill bacteria in water, magnifyer to
start fires to cook your food and warmth with a handle that holds equipment to snare small animanls, go fishing with, lint to start a fire, and a
compass for direction.
The next thing i would grab would be my special container. It holds water and a screw on cap, this can, can be thrown directly into the fire to heat
the water to a boil when nesessary. The water container is inside 2 half spheres with clips on the outside that hold the spheres together with a ring
on top for the carry strap.They can be used as bowls and i usually keep a swiss army knife,a shaker with salt and pepper in,and i stuff more lint from
dryer in here for storage and packing so the stuff inside does not roll around. That is NO# 2. Essentials: water to drink, and the small items it can
hold like salt that your body needs over time, with small knife cut food and eat with and more lint to start your fires.
I then would grab the attachment spear for hunting, fishing and self defense. Thats NO# 3.
The other stuff i can get out of the forest, Food,water,shelter or rummage thru whatever i find to use wherever i go.
You mentioned 3 things to
take, but really, I can just walk out in the woods and get what i need. It is all there, right in front of you. All you have to do, is find it.
Really. The only thing that is a challenge for me, would be the winter. REALLY. So i guess, realistacally all i would need to carry would be a pair of
good boots, thick overalls and a thick warm hat. Cause winter is a challenge for any survivalist.
