    Yes. The "Bug Out Bag". Nice list.

    I have always been convinced that if I could take one gun for survival only. It would be my scoped Ruger 10/22. I am skillfull enough with that rifle that I could take any game. I would be able to pack a ton of ammo. Plus if I was stealthy enough, I could use it to get other weapons if the situation was battle oriented.

    ".....Use it to get other weapons"


    Excellent point. Nothing like "If they die first, to the victor go the spoils...you splitting up his gear!"

    aren't there commercial tablets that make almost any water safe to drink?

    if so might go w/ the level 1 kit, I see level two has filter and bleach.

    also not relevant to OK but for those of us near an ocean what about the desalination tabs pilots carry for drinking ocean water.

    Don't know what's in the med kit, and that is a whole issue in and of itself, but something as simple as tylenol is often overloked.

    One-A-Day type multivitamins! I try to take mine everyday and I eat pretty good working w/ food all day (just not always balanced).

    Replace the bottled water with hydration gell. Takes up less space and saves weight.

    Oh and lose the TP. You can find newspaper anywhere. :lol:

    Good idea. I'm going to add that, but keep the water and reduce it since there are other uses for it besides drinking.

    List updated with the gel and a few other things I've thought of. Sponge, how could I forget sponge.

    Lose the bottled water for IV fluid if you ask me.
