My Ideal Go Bag

After writing about what a go bag is, I started thinking about what I would put in my go bag. No, I don’t currently have a go bag. Yes, I plan on putting one together.

  1. You must live in a cold climate.
    The best thing to have in a survival situation is knowledge :), but a good knife, a flint and a heat proof container to boil water in wouldn’t go astray.
    Container: purify water, prepare medicine from plants, cook food, carry water, prepare tanning mixture for skins/hides, make tea
    Knife: make spear, make arrows, cut switches for trapping, prepare food, skin animals for clothing/blankets/tarps etc,  prepare tinder for a fire, use with flint to make fire, make digging stick for collecting tubers, cut roots for water source
    Flint: make fire
    If you enjoy reading, Jean. M. Auel’s books give detailed information on how people survived in paleolithic times, knowledge which can easily be adapted.
