The only thing I would add would be a book that I brought my girlfriend as a joke. Upon flicking through it however I realised it would be very handy
so I picked one up my self. Not sure if it's available outside the UK but it's listed on Amazon and it's called the SAS Survival Guide. It was only a
couple of quid and it could fit in your shirt pocket it's that small. If the world ever goes to # then that will be the first thing I pick up before I
head in to the Highlands (Scotland). It covers everything you could think of, shelter creation, cooking tips, what plants, animals, bugs are safe to
eat, how to set up a winter camp - in short, its Bear Grylls in a book. If your not sure who he is, he's an ex SAS soldier who does a survival show on
the Discovery channel. He is basically dropped in to the most dire places in the world and has to survive and the only thing he takes with him is a
Knife, flint and a water canteen - which is empty, he has to find his own source. Of course he has a team with him, all being ex SAS, that film it and
help him if things go a bit wrong, but you get the idea. Anyway, if you are thinking of getting a knife (for survival reasons!) after reading this,
then I can only reccomend getting a book like the one above. It will go a long way for its low price!
Edit: As an after thought, well question really. How many of you would turn to your Government if # hit the fan? Would you head to the cities and to
people? Would you have faith in them to do whats right? Would you listen to the news anchor man/woman advising you to head to your nearest army
barracks and head there with the other thousends of people and without question?
Or would you pack up as much as you could and head for the wilderness? I'm don't have any kids yet and my family all live around 600 hundred miles
away so I'd be heading for the Highlands, which are on my doorstep. Sadly my Girlfriend would trust in her government and would do as she was told by
the newswires. I'd try and sway her of course!
Also, I'd take a wind up radio with me just in case it sorts itself out and I'm the last to know. I picture myself being discovered years later in a
cave stroking my knife and calling it "my precious"......Gollum Gollum!
