Watertight match case. Orange so it’s easy to find in the grass. A few hits of Gorilla tape around the outside.

Inside, I have strike anywhere matches dipped in Paraffin, a striker, a sewing needle and thread and a small fire starting tool. The tool is duct taped to the inside of the container incase the contents should spill. And some cotton wadding as tinder.

Guts of the pack.

 

First aid contents AMK pocket medic, Chap stick, Visine, insect repellent, moleskin, Electrolyte powder, Tincture of Iodine as an antiseptic and water purification.

Fire starting components. The orange match case, Bic lighter (white so you can gauge the fuel level. CSL fire starters come in a box of 10 and are sealed in plastic so they’re watertight. I cut one open and the powder will light with a spark. The fumes ARE toxic and care should taken to avoid getting the powder on your skin.

Signal and Navigation. The whistle is on the necklace kit so I didn’t include one here.

These are a couple of items that I posted earlier and plan to put to use on my camp trip this week.

 

Not a new idea. Homemade signal mirror cut from a sheet of mirror replacement material from the automotive section. It's much thinner then standard signal mirror.

I left the backing on so that I could write survival notes.

Mini Altoids kit. Pure curiosity on my part to see what you can really do with one this small.

Contents. I picked up an ARS dog tag knife off EDCdepot.com. It's stainless steel. You lash a stick to it for a better grip. It comes with a 10mm button compass and a firestarting tool.

Charcloth, Bayer aspirin wrapped in tin foil, fishing line, split shot, safety pins (double as fish hooks), band aids, Katadyn tablet, AMK tinder Quik tab, and a little piece of heavy grit sand paper.

I found this magazine pouch at Cabelas. I don't have a magazine that fits it, but I thought it might make a neat kit pouch.

 

Velcro closers

I was drinking Red Bulls at work one day and after I finished bouncing off the walls (Red Bull tastes like liquid Altoids) I thought that perhaps I should get some work done. Instead I made a kit from the Red Bull bottle.

I wrapped a foot of yellow duct tape around the outside.

 

PA050025.jpg

 

Basic kit, fire starting material, 24 guage wire and sling shot ammo.
