Unique Survival Kit List Additions!

My slow and steady accumulation of items from my survival kit list continues.  Sometimes it’s a little boring but remembering the “why” of my project keeps me motivated to do the work – no matter how exciting or not. Once the big, major items from my survival kit list had been acquired and stored, the little, almost random, items are left and seem to accumulate in a strange order.

Survival Kit Storage and Labeling

My survival equipment list is pretty long and requires almost a dozen containers to store. I didn’t want to waste space by organizing by container so my labeling system has to make up for that.  I prefer a simple approach that is durable so I used index cards and clear tape.  Some storage boxes have a *lot* of small items from my survival equipment list!

Survival Kit Snares

Snares for trapping animals are a somewhat unique item for a survival gear list.  I like them for their simplicity but they do require some practice to use effectively.  Additionally, various wire or cable sizes are also needed as small animals won’t trip large wire snares and large animals will destroy small wire snares. I’ve added extra slips and anchors to my survival gear list snares just to make sure that I can repair them if they break.

Survival Monocle

If you aren’t old enough yet to require “readers” then just wait, your time is coming.  Presbyopia typically sets in during a person’s 40s.  Once it has taken hold it is relentless – your near vision degrades slowly and requires more light to see distinctly up close.  Spare readers are a good survival kit item but a monocle on a lanyard?  Perfect!

Survival Knife Sharpener

A knife sharpener in my survival kit list is one of those little items that make a huge difference.  Use this as an example of a survival kit list item that becomes obvious to you as you study your survival kit list for future additions.

Paracord for Survival

There aren’t many problems, even in survival, that paracord can’t solve.  If you don’t have it, get some now.

Medical Scalpels for Survival Kit Gear

In my survival scenarios, accidents and injuries happen and medical attention is hard to find. I’m certainly not planning on major surgery but I do want to able to handle almost any non-life threatening emergency.  Sharp scalpels and scissors on my survival gear list will make sure I can handle those situations.

More Survival Tweezers

It is almost guaranteed that you’re going to need some tweezers when SHTF.  Make sure you have at least 2 on your survival equipment list.

Survial Equipment Forceps

And forceps too!  They are harder to find but have literally no substitute when you need them.  Add them to your survival kit list.

My Dad is a retired doctor so I raided his stash with his help and supervision.  He insisted that I’d need these non-standard forceps as well.  Each seems to have a very unique use – mostly clamping blood vessels.

Summary Unique Survival Kit List Additions!

Label your stuff in your survival kit list storage containers.  Don’t worry about organizing, just label really well.  Think through how you will feed and protect yourself after the easy stuff is gone – plan on having to scrounge for food so think about trapping and shooting.  You’re getting older too. What do you use everyday that you’ve come to rely on that you may not realize?  Your readers?  Find the secondary items on your survival kit list.  A knife sharpener accompanies knives.  A metal file should accompany your tools.  What else might you be missin on your survival kit list?  Think through your medical supplies again.  Think beyond first aid and what you will need if you can’t get to medical help. Thinking is the most important part of building your survival kit list – accumulating and organizing it is secondary – now go think!
