Budget bushcrafting and improvising is for me. The teachers called me a pack-rat when back in school days and my final decade or so of my career that I was on remote duty on an island my habit of never throwing anything away if it had the slightest potential of being useful would come in handy more times than I could count. Some old junk, a few old guitar strings, tape, zip ties, and a can of casting resin and there is not much I cannot construct or repair when needed. Add a few more commonly found bug-out items and that is what would be found stashed in the compartments of my otherwise pristine-looking SUV, ready for not infrequent excursions to the Mexican coastal areas where stores and facilities may be many miles away - more likely to find me under a palapa or in a beach cabaña in a small beach town than an all-inclusive tourist hotel in some popular resort location.

While it may be anti-climactic for the telling I am otherwise delighted to report that I have not had call to utilize these items in survival situations, so any stories regarding their use would be more fitting for a budget-homemaking and craft column instead and perhaps rather boring here. However, casting resin is a nice way to preserve the beauty and grandeur of a scorpion, colorful spider, or what-not into a belt buckle or gearshift knob and helps pass the time. A can of Raid helps make the subject easier to work with. Whether crafting a doo-dad, repairing something necessary, or perhaps constructing a valuable survival instrument it is prudent to mention here that casting resin can be made too brittle by mixing in too much catalyst but can otherwise be made very durable, so a little casual crafting with it is good experience to get familiar with its properties.

I never had reason to fashion a snare trap but doing such is in the back of my mind when saving old guitar strings after having watched many survival where such a wire device is placed along a rabbit trail to catch a meal by some stranded survivor awaiting rescue. Guitar strings are a very springy wire that could perhaps be used in making a bow device. Many uses possible.

I also carry in the SUV a couple packs of plastic drop cloth for painting. These unfold into huge sheets of light plastic that could be good for rain shelter or making a solar still. Again, fortunately, I have not had the occasion to utilize these in survival situations, though in my mind the most like scenario I would encounter to require such would times I might become stranded somewhere and need to fall back on these items - which to me seems more likely than having to deal with a zombie apocalypse scenario. A solar still is useful for capturing clean water where othewise sufficient amounts may not be present or apparent. It is also useful in cleansing or purifying water without need for a fire.

I would like to hear more on the show about dealing with various scenarios, when it is best to bug-out or hunker down, when to go for help or when to stay put and wait for rescue. Under what situations might it be best to grab the bug-out bag and leave the farm to head for the backwoods? Arm to the teeth and hold your own or form community with your neighbors, or as some posts suggest that for sake of family welfare loot, pillage, and plunder is the work of the day?

Big question: What to use when we run out of paper? Should we be hoarding and drying old corn cobs?

Thank you, Bushcraft crew. I appreciate your wisdom for all things survival.
