Survival Kit
A survival kit can be pocket-size or considerably larger, depending upon the needs of each individual or situation.

recommend maintaining a survival kit in each of these places:

One survival kit for each outdoor sportsperson (camper, hiker, hunter, skiier, etc...)
One survival kit for each motor vehicle
One survival kit for each household
Here is a list of suggested items that should be included in a basic survival kit:

Matches (Waterproof matches or matches in a waterproof container)
High-energy snack
Pocket knife
Whistle (LOUD)
Compass
Reflector or hand mirror (for signalling)
Insect repellent
Bandage strips
Tube of antibiotic ointment
Lightweight space blanket
Brightly colored (orange or yellow) plastic garbage bag
A motor vehicle survival kit should add these items:

Enough sleeping bags or blankets for everyone in the vehicle
Warm clothing
A basic first-aid kit
A reasonable supply of emergency water
A reasonable supply of emergency food
A flashlight with fresh batteries
Candles and matches
A shovel
A saw or an axe
A basic automotive tool kit
Jumper cables
A home survival kit should add these items:

A larger supply of food which can be eaten without the need for heat or electricity
A larger supply of drinkable water
A fully equipped first-aid kit
At least two flashlights and maintain a supply of fresh batteries
A supply of candles and matches
A fire extinguisher
A good supply of other necessities, such as prescription medicines
If possible, a secondary heat source, such as a wood stove or a kerosene heater -- along with a good fuel supply

One other thing I suggest, Fix-a-flat and maybe one of those tire pumps that run off your car lighter.

Its great because if its just a puncture wound use the fix a flat, let it set up and then you'll have the pump also.

I'd imagine in a bad situation you might have to drive over something that could flatten a tire...

stock up on bike tires. If we have a serious oil crisis there will not be enough bike tires.

Don't forget to add a tire plug kit to the fix-a-flat. They're cheap and will fix holes that are too big for fix-a-flat.

When your talking modern day survival it is generaly geard to surving
Confrontaions with your fellow man.
For the pupose of this discussion lets asume the shit has hit the fan
And our society has fallen appart around us.

In a survival situation we need to prioritize our list of things to do.
First question how prepared am I ?
How long will the situation last.
What is the situation?
What do we have stocked up? Water food amunition?
How was it all stored?
Do we have the skills needed to bug out to a secluded
Semi secure Location where we can avoid detection?
How many other peoploe have thought of the same place as we did?
Did we stash food water weapons out in this area ahead of time?
Do we remeber where we put them ??? :)
Shelter What time of year is it for weather?
Do we have maps and a compas WITH the knowledge reguried to use them?
Do we know the skills neede for an extended stay?
Can we tie knots make cordage from plants and animals
Do we know how to design traps and snares for animal huntig?
How about for personal defense?

These are some of the things were going to answer on this one
Put your thinking caps on guys and ladies.....

WATER PROCUREMENT

Water is one of your most urgent needs in a survival situation. You can' t live long without it, especially in hot areas where you lose water rapidly through perspiration. Even in cold areas, you need a minimum of 2 liters of water each day to maintain efficiency.

More than three-fourths of your body is composed of fluids. Your body loses fluid as a result of heat, cold, stress, and exertion. To function effectively, you must replace the fluid your body loses. So, one of your first goals is to obtain an adequate supply of water.
There are multipile ways to get watter.
Depending on your situation will decide which method you use.
First in your survival kit do you have 3 or 4 dry cleanrs plastic bags ?
I like these because there super light and pack encreadably small.
Can be used to catch rain watter or to shelter you from water.
You can make a soloar still with them which is what ill outline here.
A solar still is esentialy a cold finger extrator.
Dig a shallow depresion in the ground 10 inches deep 2 feet around .
Put your collection cup bowl tin can in the center of the pit .
Stretch a single layer of plastic over the hole in the ground.
Place rocks sticks etc around the edges of the plastic and try to seal it down to the ground well even cover the outer edges with dirt , ya got plenty dug up allready. Place a small stone in the middle of the plastic so it sags down in the midle over your cup. As the sun heats the ground under the plastic the water in the soil evaporates honenses on the plastic and runs down into your cup . If you see you have very litle water forming put abought 2 inches of fresh green leaves in the bootom.
The water that you get from this is pure 100% distiled water.
You could make water from posion ivy leaves and be fine.

Any one else got ideas and or skills to add ?

know your enemy. Know your needs. Know what you must be prpaired to do.
Know If and when it is time to bug out to your backup location.
Know what you need to be prepaired.
Now mind you guys im not right wing or left for that matter.
Just a guy with a stong desire to survive
FREE OF A PRISON
No matter what form of prison it is
Be it Martial law Terror Or economic collapse
The Latter being of my most serious concern
As it will more then likely precurse the other two.

How I sit for prepaired right now I would have been all set for katrina.
provided my house wasnt washed away. But for conversations sake lets say my home was washed away. And I was stranded in orleans .
First on a list if things to do would be procure a small boat of some type. Then Proced to loot everything I needed to survive. Light bulbs batteries from cars a car stereo for news , If I could find some tools and a lawn mower steal an alternator from a car and make a small 12 volt generator for power . plenty of gas around to aquire. Loot food move from shelter to shelter loot a scanner to keep an ear on the athoritys. And weight it out for a few weeks.
Simply put what ever it took for me to survive in an urban enviroment.

one of those little fire starting kits which is some flint on a block of magnesium
anti-bacterial handywipes
roll of TP or paper towels (or both if you got the room)
$20 bill folded up small.

let's assume you cannot loot for supplies.
too dangerous, police and gangsters shooting anyone on the streets.
or perhaps it's un-safe outside due to toxins, radiation.
or your house is surrounded by deep water and you cannot swim,
etc.

I think a good idea for survival is to have an evacuation plan also. One that involves your family, close friends etc. A meeting point so to speak if its needed. Or a way to communicate if needed. The supplies for survival should be held at the general safe meeting point for everyone needing to survive in the immediate family, group. That way all thats needed to worry about is getting to the safe spot, and not having to take any supplies with you.

Great thread. Makes me feel like I need to stock up on survival items. I'm not very prepared.

a radio transmitter would be good, a generator is a necessity.

even heard of a corn-burning stove,
burns feed corn for heat
and you can still use the 'ash' as animal feed,
burns about a bushel a day
