Yesterday at 09:16 PM Basic Survival Skills that shouldn’t be complicate by Russ

The latest version of Firefox keeps showing me links to various articles on getpocket.com. The original article of one of the latest is: How to Start a Fire, Plus 15 Other Outdoor Skills That Aren't Complicated

The answers to some of the questions are almost tongue in cheek...
#7. Build a Shelter
Create a large pile of leaves, grasses, and other debris. Crawl inside.

#8. Find Food
You won’t starve to death for two weeks or more. Spend your time finding help, not food.

#9. Walk Out
Stay with your vehicle and wait for rescue if at all possible. If not, walk downhill until you find water or a creekbed. Follow that downstream until you find a road. Congrats, you’re no longer lost.

The section on first aid is a little sparse to say the least. Other things like walking out deserve a caveat to not die of exposure in the process. Go early while you still have strength or don’t go at all.

04/16/19 12:27 PM Chaosmagnet's "modular" main emergency kit? by albusgrammaticus

I seem to recall, from the years of lurking here on the forums, that our good sheriff chaosmagnet has a main emergency kit, divided in modules, each of them living in a separate bag to be put in his car when the need arises.

A quick look with the search function yielded only this post from 2016, in which he listed the various modules, but in this occasion he did not elaborate about their contents:


I wonder if I missed the thread in which he lists the contents of each module, or if he never wrote about it.

I the first one is the case, could you please point me to the appropriate thread, if you remember it?

But if he never provided a list, and I know we all love lists here grin, please do it now!

I find this concept very interesting and I wonder if I could take inspiration from it for my car kit.

Thank you very much.

I thought we already had a thread on this subject. I searched for it; couldn't find it.

I've known about Darn Tough Socks at least a few years; when I saw the following video, I gave them serious consideration.


For those who have used these socks, do they outlast you?
