    Awesome start . I would consider other alternatives to hunting/trapping / fishing . Check out yo yo reals and their versatility

    Also the more the water purification the better .

    Consider some sort of scatter gun as well

    Looks real nice! You're off to a good start. I'd make one suggestion though. Get rid of that store bought first aid kit and build your own. Injuries that you'll sustain during something like a bug out are usually more than those can handle. Band aids and Neosporin can't fix everything. Gauze pads, sticky wrap, finger splints, Israeli battle dressings, quic klot, Krazy glue, ANTI-DIARRHEAL, and more are some of the things I'd start with. Just MHO. Best thing someone ever told me was hike with it for an overnight and you'll find out VERY quickly what you need and what you can do without. First time I went out I made the mistake of keeping mine filled with cotton socks! Oh man my feet hated me for the next week! Wool from now on. Lol.

    Don't forget the dryer lint, or tampons as fire tinder.

    You are carrying a hatchet/multi-tool and a machete. Might be a couple of pounds of redundancy. A wire saw works well and weighs almost nothing. Also quiet. I have an Old Timer Sharpening Steel which doubles as a chisel for breaking joints. Probably not made in the USA anymore. A prior poster was not kidding when he said get good hiking socks. Also get underwear like Under Armor. Expensive but worth every dime. Get good boots. Cheap ones wont hold up or protect your feet. Carrying a pack puts a lot of extra strain on your feet and ankles. Good boots are pack rated. I wear light hikers now but I would not think of carrying a heavy pack in them. If there is an REI near you, go there. They are specialists in hiking and climbing. You will be betting your life and unless you are a seasoned backpacker you wont believe the gear they have available to keep you comfortable and alive. In a way every backpacker is a survivalist. Almost forgot, get some ACE knee braces and put some mole skins in.

    Wire saws tend to break very easily. I've heard there is one used by the SAS that is very good, but all the ones I have used break easily.

    I would add the following:

    Portable water straw
    .22 Rifle (Ruger 10/.22) and about 350 rounds of ammo.
    Shortwave radio and am/fm/WB radio (most come all in one, those are the best to get and add to your kit.)

    Looks like youve put alotta thought into it and it shows, nice work man.

    I used to work witha guy that was my age that hiked the Appl. trail for the better part of some years past. I always used to ask him about his adventures and the such,and you could tell he wasnt bull****tin about any of it. Real down to earth hippy dude witha out of control beard. Damn i miss that clown.:eek:

    My wire saw is an older one that has held up well. I dont remember what brand. Kink it and your done. Use a wedge to to keep from binding. The wedge is important.
