There was a show on PBS about a guy in the '50's that went up to the Alaska bush to live. He brought hand tools -- with out the wooden parts. Made the handles and then made a house. Whittled spoons, bowls, etc. Brought a saw blade -- made the wooden structure and ripped boards to make a table, etc. He lived well until he hit his mid 80's. Amazing what he was able to do alone.

If you want meat - either bring a gun and loads of ammo -- or arrow heads and MAKE the arrows and MAKE the bow and kill a deer and use the ligaments for the string etc.

WHEN the SHTF - an entire house, furnished with a fully stocked larder can be brought in a rucksack --> just some assembly required...and a few hundred hours of semi skilled labor.

What would you estimate the cost would be to gather together your complete list?

YES~! That's the guy. Looks like old age and infirmity is catching up with me as it was late '60's when he made his cabin.

Cheers for the list, Quasi. Tragic though the likes of Hurricane Katrina may be, even more tragic would be people failing to learn from it. Disasters like that show exactly how fragile "civilisation" is and how reliant most people are on amenities.
