About 20 years ago I made up a “survival” pouch to help me should I get lost while elk hunting in Idaho. This was a supplemental kit made by a young man with not much real world survival experience. It has been “lost” in the bottom of an old pack for a long time and though periodically updates must most of it is original. I just dug it out this evening. There is not much to see but I thought I would share. The Pouch itself is an old Alice design about 7”x7”. Pealing abd not really waterproof anymore but Still serviceable. Storm matches. Still strike and light well. Lansky diamond hone. Still works. Space blanket. Still good Contractor grade heavy duty trash bag still good. I planned to use this as a backup survival shelter. King brand butane lighter has some rust but still has fuel and lights. Iodine bottle. Still sealed and full. This replaced my milspec iodine tablet bottle that the tabs turned to dust after opening. It’s maybe 10 years old. Trioxane pouch sealed but the bar has turned to powder. Ziplock full of bandaids. Ziplock yellowed and bandaids have no adhesion anymore. Ziplock with ace bandage and mole skin. Ziplock in poor condition. Ace bandage still elastic and functional. dr. Sholes molskin still soft but not sticky anymore. Neosporin. Leaked Lip balm. Leaked. Milspec magnesium fire starter. Won’t spark but will scrape easily. CRKT stiff kiss. Still sharp and ready. Blast match. Still sparks like a boss. Candle. Still solid and lights. (This was a backup tinder and or fuel source). My kits have improved since 1997 but I still think a young man could have done well with these supplies, some food and two good canteens. It’s funny what we choose and why. Looking forward to your comments. Well here are some pics. Thanks for looking.
