    Rare coins are great, but they only have value if the other party knows they are valuable. Look into some silver 1oz bullion, I suggest the rectangular ones. No one will mistake them for coins and almost everyone understands silver. Each of them is approx, a US $20 (give or take). But I have found the perceived value, by many, to be near double that.

    I hope that I'm just being a little slow as usual, but how is this different than a man purse/EDC kit? I bring along something similar everywhere I go.

    The pocket ref is actually really handy to have around. I usually have one in arms reach throughout the day. There is all kinds of great info in there, it's kinda the precursor to Google or something like that.

    Every bag ought to have a 1L platypus in it. Totally flat, no weight, holds 1L of water. Costs $12

    I like it! Some items I don't understand. The single board computer. What it is and for, I guess?
    I agree with a pocket ref. Times when your tired and hungry. Just can't remember that knot, that would work perfect. That kind of thing. I was gifted these. So I can't tell you where to find them. Playing cards with flora info on each one. If you can find some your cards can do double duty. ;)
    Cheers Jim

    That's one of those neat books that I can't believe is not available in .pdf / digital format yet....

    Because the bag is information based, you may not get all the information you need without google.

    If for instance you need to know how to signal in morse code, or how to temper a piece of steel if you must make a cutting tool you can do that (just as an example) besides that it is great reading on long flights, and it did come in handy on my last mission trip overseas during a building project.

    The SBC can be mounted to any available television with the correct adapters, if you could not get wifi, you could use ethernet, you can also add any peripheral devices you might need, like a magnetic key card/reader and writer, or a near field communication device for finding other types of signals. The sky is the limit.

    In my first post i explain what a panic bag is, it is about what you can provide for yourself with the right amount of information. Of course EDC tools are great to have, and very important. But, if you have enough information you dont need as much equipment.

    If you reach customs and border patrol, you cannot carry more than a specific dollar amount without declaring it. The coins, while rare are interpreted to be face value. I have those coins because i go thru my change and cash once a week for anything potentially rare.

    Mine actually stays empty most of the time, but its nice to have options. I carry it in addition to a regular bottle.

    Please note the security envelope.

    These are very useful for carrying sensitive information and/or sensitive objects. You could potentially mail a package to yourself marked "general delivery" to the destination of your choice for pick up. Sometimes having some form of tamper proofing is important, especially when traveling in places that may have less than scrupulous officials.

    @Wasp one alternative that i like to use over the bladders is oven bags, you can actually expose them to allot of heat/hot rocks etc. For water purification. Or place over a leafy plant to collect water from evaporation.

    There are a few other gizmos i like but i havent shown.

    One of them is called a "biege box" (circa 1990s phone phreaking) and the other is my nooelec SDR: software defined radio...not as cool as the gadzooks hackRF but still pretty cool. There is a great software package on the android playstore so you can use it via a USB 3.0 dongle on your smart phone.

    Another great use for the reference manual is for making calls when you need to know airport names or international telecom codes.

    The crossword has cryptography uses as well, if you go to the solutions page you can create a word bank for the message you wish to create. Page 1. Crossword one, 4. accross etcetera. You could use it for allot of things, like a really fun geocaching game. You could make it as simple as altering a file name in a digital photograph to provide a "solution number" for the prize.

    You could ditch the tooth paste tube and make tooth paste dots. Save weight and not have to worry about the tube leaking or busting.

    That is a companion device to the single board computer, if you have a magnetic card reader/writer you could make duplicate keys...just in case ya lose one...or something...;) but seriously, as many times as i have been locked out, i like having one i don't mind scrapping to jimmy my house door open, sucks messing up your credit card for such a use. Of course there are several potential uses, some of them illegal. The panic bag is an overall concept of what you could do, or may have to do, not what you should do, or what is legal/illegal.
