There are a few really critical things that every Prepper Survival kit should have stashed in it. I say quality as I’ve seen examples of both junk (they strip the gears or break after a couple of uses) and pricey (over priced due to hype or brand name). Needs to have a good quality Ferro Cerium rod, a waterproof tinder box, tinder (in the form of purchased tinder tabs). It must have an excellent set of pliers, one knife, a file, an awl, a saw blade, wire cutter and possibly Phillips, star and flat screw driver blades. You are going to need rope for 100’s of different tasks so ensure you have a couple of different thicknesses of polyethylene rope, a small ball of string and obviously some nylon line. You won’t be able to cover every problem you run in to with this but you do need to have the basics (gauze, cotton balls, band-aids, medical tape, antiseptic ointment and disinfectant, tensor bandages, etc). Take a variety of sewing needles (straight and curved), a few straight pins and a handful of different sized safety pins. Although it is a heavy addition, duct tape can be invaluable when repairing shelters, fixing pipes and even for emergency first aid. Those are the Top Ten (10) but there are definitely some other important but not critical items to have in your kit. Always have 4-5 pencils in your stash (easier to write with in cold, wet, upside down, etc) as well as a few good tough stick pens. A ball of snare or small gauge steel wire is essential for creating snares, shelter building, fixing broken items and so much more. So those are my important items I have in my kit… what do you have that I may have missed? You are not authorized to see this partPlease, insert a valid App IDotherwise your plugin won't work. I like the ESSE-6 knife a lot… It is a mixture of the best points from a full survival knife and a more refined bushcraft knife. I do prefer a drop point blade over most others [especially for the added strength], as I feel you can do a larger amount of tasks more easily, along with its 20deg grind angle it makes the more finer skills, like filleting, or feathering wood for kindling, a simple task – these finer bushcraft tasks are then made even easier by the added choil that is nicely ground into the knife blade and gives you a nice feel to the delicate tasks when choking down on the knife. I also like the thumb grooves on the spine of this knife – not really a major feature, but just gives choking down a nicer, more secure feel.
Handles are made from Micarta and are more than functional and removable, although I have never had to actually remove them – the grip itself is very plainly shaped and works well with your bare hands or with gloves, so no problems there. Like many other top quality USA manufacturers, you get a lifetime guarantee with the ESEE-6 , but you’ll have to be doing something seriously stupid to damage this knife. Wilderness Survival Skills Revisited by Dino Labiste:After many years of an informal break, I was asked to do another wilderness survival adventure.
It would be difficult to find a friendlier environment than May in SoCal to learn survival in. Personally I think it is important to learn survival is a reasonably forgiving environment before you rush off to test yourself in the Mojave in July or the High Sierra in January.

The one you choose should give excellent bright white light that lasts for good amount of time, illuminates a fairly wide swath of area and is easily charged up by 5-10 mins of hand pumping or crank turning.

Paracord would be the ultimate rope to have due to it’s strength, endurance, multiple ways of using it. These are things that may not keep you alive but will make your experience less stressful or your survival experience simpler.
The skills needed for good leadership are present in all of us, but not all of us are natural leaders. Our ALPs series is designed to identify, embrace and and strengthen our ALPs participants leadership abilities. Unfortunately, our busy schedule in our daily lives today made it difficult to find appropriate dates for everyone. Whoever wanted to attend and could make it on the adventure was more than welcome.As with previous wilderness survival trips that I organized, there were a few restrictions on supplies and equipment.
TMO Adventures provide an opportunity to realize a group's governing principles, values, ethics and practice core competencies in a safe and supportive environment. Our challenges are experiential in nature and we encourage continued teamwork, realistic goal setting, honest feedback and shared learning in a experiential process which stimulates our creative thinking and problem solving skill sets. The only items you could bring were a cutting tool, metal receptacle for cooking and boiling water, wool blanket, water container, plastic tarp, trash bags and a pack to carry all your “stuff”. Groups tend to develop a sense of community that wants to be successful at what they are engaged in. Participants find a new sense of confidence in themselves an understanding A and appreciation for others that transfers over to the school and their community.
The goal was not to simulate a survival situation, but to evaluate, strengthen and improve our wilderness skills in the backcountry. We believe that together, the teachers and students will return to their classrooms and will ultimately be linked together through their shared experience to achieve the common goal of linking adventure through education. The trip should have been actually called “Wilderness Skills Adventure”.Many people today learn and practice wilderness skills from books, YouTube, internet articles, CDs or with an acquaintance. When you become proficient at fire making with that ideal hand drill or bow drill kit, take your skills to the next level and test your competence in the wild. A  10:00 am - 2:00 pmHave you ever wondered if you could you make it on your own in the woods? The situation becomes different when you have to find your fire making materials to create that needed ember to keep you warm at night or to boil your water.
Identifying, locating and gathering food in the wilderness becomes a serious matter when the pang of hunger begins. Building an efficient and effective shelter is important when the temperature drops at night.The week before the trip, I arranged a group get-together to review, prepare and practice the essential skills we would need on the wilderness skills adventure.
It can make a strong man panic, a brave woman act irresponsibly without thinking and a mature teenager cry. You are the best thing you have."During this four-hour program you will use critical thinking skills and a positive attitude to complete this 'Survival' scenario. You will learn impromptu wilderness medical skills (First-Aid without a kit), look for natural shelter, build a debris shelter, find safe drinking water, find resources for making primitive tools, make a primitive weapon, track wildlife, build a fire, learn back country cooking skills and what leave no trace ethics are, even forecast the weather! All participants acquire real skills and an increased awareness of themselves and their environment.

They also develop a more positive self-image through an authentic sense of personal accomplishment.
The release of adrenaline draws blood into the major muscle groups in anticipation of the "flight or fight" reaction. All students should read or listen to the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen and come with small blank page journal and a pen.
We can use that extra shot of energy to get us out of harm's way, if we have the willpower to control our actions. This is why two people doing exactly the same thing can have completely opposite reactions to a situation. Learn the skills that will save your life and or your family or friends.This is a course that you won't want to missDress casual and warm.
One may be excited about the adventure and the other scared of the wilderness.The wilderness can be frightening if we got lost, our supplies run low or our gear disappears. How do we find food and water, how do we make fire, how do we find our way back and how do we stay warm at night? Learn outdoor survival skills plus how to build a matchless fireBring water - snack & lunch, ID books, magnifying glass if you have them. It's the fear of the unknown that can creep into our mind before the adventure begins.Knowledge and experience are the first step to overcoming fear. Self-assurance can be established by the knowledge of survival skills and understanding your relationship with the plants, animals, the land and the weather around you.
Practice and experience will give you the basis to test your skills to have more confidence in handling difficult situations.
All programs require proper clothing and rain gear, sturdy footwear, sunscreen, water bottle.
You can overcome obstacles that you may face with knowledge, practice, common sense and the will to survive.Twenty five years ago, I proposed to a group of friends a backpacking opportunity to hike into the wilderness with minimal backpacking gear.
The fear of not filling their belly was too frightening, much less, the idea of no sleeping bag or matches. Our reaction to any situation depends not on the situation itself, but purely on our individual perception of it.
The idea was to travel as light as possible.The final group for the wilderness adventure consisted of 4 men, including myself, and 1 woman.
