    I had to read the book "Alive" in high school and it left a lasting impression.

    When you say daypack, I assume you mean a small backpack and not a tiny fanny-pack. Some of the below items were mentioned above; I made the list by looking only at your original post:



    Canteen cup (metal) or small aluminum pot; can be used to heat water, make tea, boil meat.

    Wire saw

    Single-serving instant coffee packets, tea bags, soup packets, boullion cubes, Ramen noodles, etc.

    Salt/pepper packets

    Small lithium-battery flashlight (tactical or otherwise)

    Roll of toilet paper in zip-lock bag

    Sunblock and/or bug repellent

    Tube tent (add more para cord if you add this item)

    Space blanket and/or mylar sleeping bag

    Military pilot's gloves or similar

    Socks, 2 pair

    Cheap woven plastic tarp, small (lean-to roof lining, extra warmth, shade, ground cloth)

    Small roll of wire-based fishing line (can also be used as snare wire for small game)

    Leatherman tool (EDIT: oops, missed the Multi pliers first time through your list)

    Chewing gum and/or hard candy

    Energy bars, granola bars

    Road flare/fusee (best firestarter made; will light wet wood in a rainstorm)

    Small/pocket-sized survival manual




    Hmmmm......

    Matches for your match box?

    He isn’t kidding about the perfume err um cologne. He reeks when we go to the bar.
    I have had to explain to him a couple of times that women are not coming to our table because of his cologne, it is because they are waitresses and that is their job.
    It is cool talking to women when out with Mike. I look a WHOLE lot prettier when their eyes are watering…

    As opposed to Bill, who just generally reeks. And not of cologne.

    First aid kit.
    Water-resistant blanket. They're usually fleece or flannel on one side and some kind of vinyl on the other, and they fold up real small. My blankets have come in endlessly helpful while in the woods. An old one my mom made when I was little actually saved a kid's life once in the mountains.

    Of course they do Mike!!! He paid them didn't he?

    Oh Yeah, OP. What EXACTLY type of "survival \" are you thinking? You said not "bug out bag" (Not gonna go there). So what are you thinking you MAY need this for? Stranded on a road trip in the desert? A "lets get outa here for a few days" impulse trip back up? A "oh my god you are brave to drive that car this far" (hey i have heard that before) kit? Help out at an accident/ search and rescue? Running from the Midget strippers? Or just general all TSHTF type?

    OMG you just about killed Mike. That is SOOO close to my Van. I have wanted to paint Free candy on it for a while. I am worried others (like the Police) may not find it as amusing as I do.
