Survival Kit (Outdoor Survival Series Chapter 3)
The most important thing to remember is that your survival kit is NO GOOD unless it is with you. When I venture more than 200 feet from the truck, trailhead or camp I always make sure I have my survival kit.
This small kit includes those things that will enable you to survive an unforeseen situation. Your kit should contain the tools necessary to build a fire, provide shelter, signal for help and stay hydrated:
- FIRE – metal match and Vaseline-soaked cotton balls
- SHELTER – 4mm-thick bag, 8×10 tarp
- SIGNAL – whistle, mirror, orange flagging tape
- HYDRATION – chlorine tablets
In this third chapter and video, we will take a closer look at the essential items to stock in your survival kit. Click HERE to go to the previous chapter in this series. Click HERE to go to Chapter 4 .
