Most of Florida is sand land. So as a kid I scrubbed my cook pot clean with sand and lake or river water. Of course now days you canít drink the water without treating anymore.

The only time I actually was stranded in the wilderness I got by with my pocket knife and matches. Amazling enough food was found in float tubes along the river to get by. And I borrowed a few canned goods from a cabin along the way. Left a note & enough money for the food I took.

Seems like the knife is top of the list. Way to make fire second which can be accomplished with a good knife. Also a knife used strategically can get you anything... Thanks guys.

as it should be. i can't think of a more important tool to have than a
good knife. the crappiest knife on your person is way better than the
best substitute that you could rig up in the bush.

The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.

A bar of ivory soap. Wash yourself , wash your dishes and your clothes. In bar form so no spills.

That said water is the most important thing. But tablets are hard on people over 40. So a good filter might be best. A life straw with coffee filters to cover the end and Dave the filter maybe. Maybe a pot to boil water as back up . Use it to cook in too. Food you can eat on the run with no fire. Protein bars , jerky etc. If you bug out you might need to get distance and not be seen.
