Having been camping since I was a boy, I’ve gained much experience in preparing for such events. I recently purchased a Camalbak which is nice, but not ideal when on a backpacking trip because you can not fit all of your gear in them. If you are caught in a survival situation while camping, it is because you are in the wilderness and have no way of contacting people. My signal mirror has instructions engraved on the back so I never forget the proper way to use it.
Even if you are not in a survival situation, whistles can be used to tell others in your camp that danger is nearby, or that you’ve been injured.
If your shoes and socks get wet, it is likely that you will get blisters because your feet will slide around in your shoes. There is one more thing that I must add to this list, even though it exceeds ten items: a buddy. So, that’s the list of things you should bring so you are prepared for many situations that might occur. With Instructables you can share what you make with the world, and tap into an ever-growing community of creative experts.
Having been camping since I was a boy, I've gained much experience in preparing for such events. As a Bushcraft instructor I still run on the rules of run with the skills and lessen the kit. Wool is very effective at maintaining heat even when wet but not a polywool blend try to find 100% wool but it can be hard to find. Good weapons would be a slingshot cheap and easy to obtain with practice it is great to squirrels and other small game.
The author of the GEEK-TO-YOU series: a series of Instructables designed to educate YOU about computers. We make our Boy Scouts memorize this list pretty early on, and they each keep a small stuff-sack packed with their own 10E kita€”kind of like a go-bag for camping. All you need to add is a pack, sleeping kit (tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad), camp stove, and change of clothes and you're good to go on any backwoods trip.
They are more durable and resilient than folding knives as they do not have mechanical movement.
Ideally you would use a damp towel or rag, but if that is not readily available, I wipe it off on my pant leg. This will keep you safe during usage as you will not have to apply extra force in order to cut things.
If you are in a survival situation, finding a (relatively) safe place to sleep for the night is a great thing. You don’t want to make things complicated with dangling skin, infections, and gushing blood.

I can not stress enough the importance of having another person with you when you go into the wild. You don't want to make things complicated with dangling skin, infections, and gushing blood. You should maybe add weapon of some form that is lightweight and compact and is powerful enough to kill an animal for hunting purposes.
This is more of a comfort factor than a survival one (malarial areas aside), but bug spray and, if necessary, mosquito netting can make a buggy trip much less miserable. It may seem antithetical to the backwoods ethos, but having a mode of communicationa€”cellphone, two-way radio, sattelite phone for the isolated backcountry, even just an emergency whistle and a mirror or old CD (for signaling)a€”is an important survival tool. The best thing you can bring on any tripa€”and the key to survival in truly sticky situations.
As you gain more experience, you will begin to learn what does and doesn’t work for you, and can adjust accordingly. If you find yourself in a survival situation, your chances of survival are infinitely increased with a knife. If your knife becomes loose, there should be a screw which attaches your blade to the knife housing.
I am always wearing a paracord bracelet and usually bring an extra one camping, in addition to a large length of unused paracord. They are nice to bring camping (in addition to a regular camping pack) so that you can go on a day hike without having to lug around all of your gear, just a few things for the hike. You will be able to find a road or other sign of home on the map that you can get to by navigating with your compass. First-aid kits include gauze, bandages, alcohol cleaning wipes, gloves, and other supplies that will help you heal. Moisture pulls heat away from your body, causing it to focus energy on creating extra heat to compensate. I'm planning for a week long survivalist trip and looking for things I may have missed and its a solid list for a top 10 minimalist survival guide.
You could also add a really loud pop gun or noisemaker to attract help or scare away animals. Also bring along some tindera€”dryer lint or a short length of frayable twine is good and easy. The troop will provide food, but always have an emergency ration of your own (Granola bar, Powerbar, Snickers, GORP, whatever). However, remember that scouts can only use their cellphones in emergenciesa€”or to take pictures. My extra bracelet has a side release buckle which makes it easy to attach to a strap on my pack. Your body can focus it’s energy on keeping your body moving and your brain functioning fully instead of generating heat.

They are also great for mountain biking because they are low profile, provide easy water access, and can carry some bike repair tools (depending on the size). If you happen to get to the road as a car is passing, you can use the whistle to catch their attention. A lot of it you can, but that would impede the movement of your legs, and having a pack is just so much easier. The troop will always have a water filter or two on trips, but carrying our own iodine tablets is wise.
GPS units are fun, but always also have a topographical trail map and compass as they don't need batteries or satellite signals to work. Wrap a few feet of duct tape around your hiking pole or a pencil for tent-pathing and pack-fixing.
The troop leaders will always have at least two first aid kits, but it's wise to carry a small one of your own.
Whistles are also good in the wilderness; for all you know, there may be other campers nearby to help you.
It also allows you to pick up useful things along the way, such as a crafted weapon, bow drill, and other things. If something happens to you out there, such as breaking a leg, you will have no chance of getting out without another person. Luckily I will have 2 other competent people not far and room for guns ammo and fishing supplies.
They will keep you dry and warm, and the one I have can fold into it's own pocket and has a strap design so that when you push the pocket then the jacket becomes a pouch.
I always bring at least Band-Aids, pain relievers (including aspirin for potential heart issues), moleskin (for blisters), and Benadryl (for stings and other unexpected allergic reactions).
To the person that commented about fishing, a very basic fishing kit would include fishing line, a hook, and a split-head sinker, you can use your hands to find worms or crickets for bait and local to the area you are in is always an advantage. Many argue that, these days, a cellphone is one of the most important items in your first aid kit so you can call for help if needed. The more people know what we're going and where we're going, the less time we waste milling around aimlessly.
Another thing to add would be a means of finding food easily, like fishing gear or freeze dried packets, and a stainless steel pot.
