This is great info!
Thanks Guys :cheers:+1^ to the OP! Great info! Are you an undercover SERE Instructor? lol
It would probably be a good idea to even print this out and keep it in the rig.
I've heard of it, but have not read it. Let me know what you think when your done reading it.Ya Mike, ya got me thinking. As well as others here at work that teach this kind of stuff.
Friday I got a new book. "When all he11 breaks loose". I'm sure you know of it. Been reading a few pages at night.
Thanks for the kind words. :cheers:I jsut stumbled upon this thread. I dont claim to know it all but I have been in a few crappy situations. This list is pretty legit and very comprehensive. everyone will have their own needs and styles but Shadow-Warrior takes the time to add why he carries these things and what they can be used for. This allows you all to make up your own minds about what suits your needs. I would suggest that defaulting to what he carries, why, and what he uses it for will steer none of you wrong if you dont have enough experience of your own just yet.
He put a lot of thought into this not to mention his valuable time. I hope everyone understands how valuable this info is. It takes years and years of experience not to mention the personal punishement (you have to get into these situations sometimes in order to learn how to get out).
SW - if you ever figure out how to get "common sense" down in writing pelase let me know. It is most difficult.
Thanks buddy, just trying to help other out and get others thinking about the what if's. :bigthumb:i always refernce this thread when i get ready to go out/hunting/fishing/hiking/kayaking/camping/off roading....etc......RR
Another excellent advice.A rule of thumb is that you shouldn't go anywhere, where you are not prepared to walk out if things go bad for you.
That's because the thread was all about a small "Pocket" kit that you can wear on your person NOT a full blown First Responder Kit. This thread was to get people to think "Outside the Box". We have a lot of members that are now new to the off road world and need to think more than just hitting some trails driving around. I wanted to get people to think about the what if's when in the middle of no where.one thing i didnt see on your list, sam splint? theyre handy light and can be used to splint damn near anything, you can also use them as a small wind barrier when starting a fire, or a small clean and level work surface. If the splint exterior padding becomes ruined you can tear it off and use the aluminum interior for some really creative survival tools.
Thanks. :cheers:To the OP -- thanks for a great and thoughtful writeup!
