Some Survival Gear

Inventory Lists of Survival Gear Kits

First a generic list is important to have some basic items available in your home area at all times. Generic lists are adaptable for climate and social circumstances, etc… so you can make your own personalized special occasion trip lists. These things are vital for emergencies!

1.  Durable Sealed Food

2.  Durable Sealed Liquid Container

3.  Cook Pot and Bowl

4.  Blade and Spoon

5.  Towel and Blanket

6.  Underwear and Socks (more than needed, usable as rags)

7.  Clothing you wear while moving (jacket, hat, shirt, pants, shoes, etc)

8.  Scarf or Hanky

9.  Backpack or Duffel Bag (that most of this goes in)

10. Paper, Pencil, Marker, Matches

11. Electric Torch (flashlight) and Lighter  (flame for starting fires)

12. Flask with high proof alcohol (for cleaning wounds, gunk, and spirits)

13. strong Rope cord, thin twine string, and bandages

14. Small book, game, or instrument (harmonica, flute, percussion, etc) this is optional of course, and now would be replaced with a Cell Phone or I-Device (which might be useless if cell towers are down, and cannot be charged after a few days of battery).


Food that lasts the longest without growing mold or spoiling (MRE, crackers, salted nuts, noodles) sealed and contained in a cook pot you can put on a campfire, access to potable water, plastic or metal bottle (for water, does not break, if lost replaceable), large cup or bowl made of wood or metal, flask of alcohol, more underwear and socks than shirts and pants, medicine (if you need something specific for a severe condition), sources of portable light (one of which should have a flame for starting fires), some paper, marker, string, cord, blade, spoon, … i make it all fit in one bag i can carry with a strap over long distances.

Ultimate actual decisions are personal, and variable depending on circumstances. However it is good to have a few generic emergency scenarios, and kits, available in your home. Appalachian Trail Thru hikers agree with old sarges on this:  “Packs are too heavy, until you need what you don’t have.”

  1. Throughout that movie, they’re traveling from place to place, but is that really safe. It will then create zombie characters in your surrounding neighborhood which will come towards your marker on the map. The troops are torn apart by the same enemy soldiers they had killed a few minutes earlier in an ambush.

  2. It’s hard to come by knowledgeable people about this topic, but you seem like you
    know what you’re talking about! Thanks

  3. It not only takes much lesser time to construct, more steel
    building yuma durable and cost effective. Also, it is
    really uncompromising. Many churches are on a regular basis.
    The cost savings are impressive when compared to wooden
    buildings. So the foundation is one of the strongest and toughest building materials, expenditures for labor is also decreased, since
    steel buildings are some of the best people. You will need steel building yuma to
    consider a few things first. The steel substrate has a hot dipped galvanised coating of 275 grammes per square metre.

  4. This is really interesting, You’re a very skilled blogger.
    I have joined your rss feed and look forward to seeking more of your great post.
    Also, I have shared your web site in my social networks!

  5. If you stagger the plants instead of placing them in
    a straight row, you can fit more herbs in the container, plus you give the planter a pleasing look.
    Growing your own vegetables is the answer even if you have a
    limited amount of space. A wooden window planter box can be
    an excellent gift.

  6. I almost never write remarks, however I looked at some of the comments here
    Some Survival Gear | SCOD Public Blog. I actually do have
    2 questions for you if it’s okay. Could it
    be just me or do a few of these remarks come across like they are written by brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are posting on additional sites, I’d like to follow
    anything new you have to post. Could you list
    of every one of your social networking pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
    or linkedin profile?
