Five day survival kit
I love the woods and occasionally get alittle Lost. It's important to be prepared for your basic needs for survival. Below are some examples of how to make your backup kit.
Always have the basic things you need in any situation:
Waterproof matches or lighter
Reflections device (cd tinfoil mirror)
Tarp or other basic shelter building material (for those of you who can't make one out of sticks and branches)
Water purification supply
Good firstaid kit
Those are some very basic items needed for survival. All of these items can fit into a small survival kit and help any survival situation. Don't go over board.
Remember these items are meant to be a back up to your primary survival needs. They are meant to be a smaller lighter pack that you can use as a last resort if you get separated from your primary survival kit.
