Cooking Tripod

This Cooking Tripod is the perfect way to cook over your fire! I love it for several reasons. Firstly, I can boil lots of water quickly. When your water source is questionable this is the perfect way to boil lots of water. Secondly I can prep meals in the morning and use my fire as a slow cooker all day long so that when I get back to camp everyone has a nice hot meal. Lastly, who wants to be inside near a hot stove when you could be outside where at least there might be a breeze?

It is also super portable, meaning you can set up camp anywhere, anytime. You can grill, bake, or deep fry whenever your crew gets hungry. It’s hard to find off the undead when you’re weak from hunger.

Cooking Tripod Scoring

This Cooking Tripod can have a Low Impact on your survival and scores 275/1000. Why does it score better than the Folding Campfire Grill? The primary reason is that the Campfire Grill only lets you build a small fire under it. That is perfect for smaller groups, but when I have twenty people in camp I like to be able to make large pots of stew and other bulk meals. This Cooking Tripod let’s me use much larger pots over the fire!

Don’t let the number fool you. Being on the list of top thousand survival gear items is a big deal. Just being on the list makes this critical gear.

  • 50 inch tall steel tripod
  • Tripod features three legs and an adjustable chain with pot hook

SPAM

There is a reason that SPAM is the #1 canned meat brand. That may sound like small praise to some, but SPAM is actually an awesome staple. When I was younger I would take it with me camping and eat it with just about everything. SPAM & eggs, SPAM stew, and toasted SPAM sandwiches. All super easy to make, tasty, and full of calories and nutrition to keep going.

Best of all, its also fully cooked, so even its pouring rain – or you can’t risk a fire, you can still eat well.

It has a stable shelf life of up to five years. Buy fresh stock, and then rotate it, eating the older stuff, and replacing it with fresh units.

Because its also very dense, it’s easy to keep a good supply at you bolt hole without taking up any real storage space at all, which is always at a premium. So stock up and be ready when the sh*t hits the fan.

SPAM Scoring

SPAM can have a Moderate Impact on your survival and scores 366/1000 on the survival scale.

Don’t let the number fool you. Being on the list of top thousand survival gear items is a big deal. Just being on the list makes this critical gear.

  • #1 canned luncheon meat brand
  • Fully cooked canned pork with ham
  • 6 simple ingredients; 0 grams trans fat per serving; 0 grams sugar per serving
  • 7 grams of protein with 180 calories per serving
  • Shelf stable; does not require refrigeration until after it’s opened

Air Horn

This Air Horn is everything from a security device to a multi functional tool. It is a must have safety item for hikers and campers. Why? Because it doesn’t need cell service or rely on radio waves. Basically that means it works wherever you are.

My first bit of advice is that if you are out in the great outdoors with kids, or just people who don’t routinely adventure out into the wilderness, give each of them an Air Horn. It will scare off most wild creatures. But more importantly, it is an easy way to signal if they get lost. Make sure they know what to do. Stop moving. The only reason to move is to find water or shelter. Blow the horn every fifteen minutes. If they hear a return blast, reply. That will let the rescue party find you!

This Air Horn is also a great home defense tool. If someone is trying to break into your house or creeping around your camp site, guess what will get 9/10ths of those people running? You got it, a few blasts of an Air Horn will scare off most creepers. If you are anywhere near other people, it will get them up to help you as well. The other, sad reality, is that the people who don’t run off are likely there for bad reasons. So don’t hesitate if they keep coming. Once you confirm they are a threat, don’t hesitate to use as much force as needed to stop them.

I also keep an Air Horn in my vehicle. Want to flag down help? A few blasts of an Air Horn really gets people’s attention.

The other reason I love my Air Horn is my ability to set up harmless traps. Want to be alerted when someone comes through the woods at the back of your property? A few eye bolts, cables, and a little Air Horn configuration and you have a harmless alarm trap. It also has the bonus of scaring off most would be intruders.

Air Horn Scoring

This Air Horn can have a High Impact on your survival and scores 700/1000 on the survival scale. Buy one for every vehicle you own and one for each member of your hiking group. When you realize you need them, you will be glad you have them!

  • 115dB horn can be heard up to ½ mile (805 m) away.
  • Great for boating, camping, and hiking.
  • Reduce the risk of bear attacks!
  • Periodic blasts warn animal and offer a louder alternative to bear bells.
  • Prevents you from startling wildlife into aggressive/defensive behavior.
  • Compact horn; fits in pocket, backpack, or glove compartment.
  • Simply press the button to sound horn!
  • Loud horn can alert other hikers, or search party if stranded, injured, or lost.
  • Great for boaters in fog conditions – meets U.S. Coast Guard recommendations for boats up to 39’ (12 m).
  • Each horn can sound up to 50 ¼-second blasts or up to 25 ½-second blasts.

Folding Campfire Grill

This Portable Outdoor Folding Campfire Grill is the perfect way to turn any fire into a camp kitchen. I’ve seen so many meals and pots of coffee end up in the fire over the years. People play the rock balancing game. They try to use fire wood to make a stable shelf near the flames. It eventually leads to frustration when you meal falls into the fire! The good news is this Campfire Grill is portable and sets up in under a minute.

Pre disaster, these Grills are worth their weight in gold. They are heavy enough to feel sturdy, but not so heavy that you can’t hike it into your camp. If you discover one of these near a fire pit, feel free to use it, but leave it for the next hiker. There are several trails I used to hike frequently where my buddies and I would just leave them behind so we didn’t have to hike them back in.

Post disaster these Grills make it easy to cook outside. That is important. I won’t be wasting my batteries on powering my stove. I’ll save that energy for critical things like lights and refrigeration for food. Cooking inside in the summer is also a sure way to make your living space too warm for comfort. Much better to just cook outside!

Folding Campfire Grill Scoring

This Portable Outdoor Folding Campfire Grill can have a Low Impact on your survival and scores 179/1000.

Don’t let the number fool you. Being on the list of top thousand survival gear items is a big deal. Just being on the list makes this critical gear.

  • Heavy-duty campfire grill for cooking over an open fire.
  • Made of high-quality welded steel with a steel-mesh grill top.
  • For use with outdoor cookware, including heavy cast iron.
  • Not intended for direct-contact grilling.
  • Legs angle out for stability and fold up underneath for easy transport and compact storage.

Utility Bucket

If you have ever had one of the big box store buckets crack under you, or rupture when you dropped it in the cold, then you know whey I’ve moved my bucket related tasks to this Impact Resistant Utility Bucket. I have abused my Utility Bucket in the blazing sun and the freezing cold and while it does have some scratches after years of use I know it is there when I need it? Could I destroy it? I’m not sure I could without doing something scary or dumb.

I trust this Utility Bucket to hold my gear and take a beating when moving anything from rocks to water, I know it will survive in the back of my vehicle through the seasons, because you never know when you will need a Bucket and maybe some TP. I just make sure I don’t reuse that bucket for moving drinking water, feed, or any other food products!

Wireless Alarm Kit

This Olymbros Alarm Kit is the perfect wireless alarm system. I love how flexible they let me be. I can discretely put them in trees, bushes, or anywhere I need to. That means no one is ever going to find my Alarm Sensors unless I show them where to look. Because I can put them in so many places it makes them easy to hide. I can also move them around easily. Even if you find one, it may not be where you think it is a few days later!

This Olymbros Alarm Kit gives me the piece of mind that having early warning brings. If someone is sneaking across the back of my property it is going to alert me. That gives me time to get an appropriate response ready.

That peace of mind extends to hunting and camping. I can put a sensor or two on a trail and if something triggers it I know its there. That means safety in case it’s not a game animal. It also improves my odds of getting game because its hard to scan every train all the time.

I’ve also used these to alarm me if someone comes near my camp while I’m gone, and even my vehicle. People suck sometimes. These alarms let me know that someone has approached my vehicle so I can get back to it if I need to.

Wireless Alarm Kit Scoring

This Olymbros Alarm Kit can have a High Impact on your survival and scores 529/1000.

  • Wide detecting angles.
  • 65ft./20m long detecting distance.
  • Communication range up to 650ft./200m.
  • Best choice hunting accessory!
  • 3 Alarm Modes.
  • Up to 100 sensors on 1 receiver watch.
  • Add components at any time.

Pre-Seasoned Dutch Oven

I’m not the best camp cook in the world, I like simple recipes that I can set and forget – which makes this Pre-Seasoned Dutch Oven the perfect vessel to use as a crockpot while at base camp or your cabin. Have a roast, some vegetables and maybe a can of beer or other stock? Throw it all in the Dutch Oven and set it over a low fire (or directly in the coals) in the morning and come supper time you will have a mouth watering dinner. I’ve found that keeping the Dutch Oven either off to the side or in a bed of coals works best as I tend to use it as a slow cooker – but it does take some experimenting with to find out what works best for your dishes.

Your ability to cook with this Dutch Oven is really limited only by your imagination. I’ve seen people cook bread, stews, eggs, roasts, flatbread, vegetables, steaks, chops, and even ribs. It really just comes down to learning how your dishes behave in the Dutch Oven.

When you don’t have all the regular kitchen implements you are spoiled with in your day to day lives this Dutch Oven is a multi use tool that can make your camp or Off The Grid kitchen better.

Pre-Seasoned Dutch Oven Scoring

This is a must have for any base camp, cabin, or bolt hole. This Dutch Oven can have a Low Impact on your survival and scores 181/1000.

Don’t let the number fool you. Being on the list of top thousand survival gear items is a big deal. Just being on the list makes this critical gear.

  • Lifetime warranty.
  • Self-basting domed lid preserves moisture; loop handles aid in carrying
  • Pre-seasoned with vegetable oil formula and ready for immediate use
  • Rugged cast-iron construction heats slowly and evenly
  • 5-Quart Dutch oven with cast-iron lid ideal for slow-cooking foods

Whether its car camping or just hiking out to the lake, this Cookware Set will serve you well for years to come. Which is one of the reasons these are the Pots & Pans with my camping gear. I keep another set at my Bolt Hole. They work just as well inside as out, and they will likely last longer than I do.

Backpacking Trowel

I love my Backpacking Trowel. It is one of those all purpose tools that I can’t imagine heading out onto the trail without. My top two uses for this Trowel are to dig cat holes (single use latrines) and to dig out a shallow pit for fires. I don’t want to risk my fire spreading if the wind picks up and putting the pit below grade is the first step to keep that from happening. I’ve also used this Trowel to chip ice away from streams to get to flowing water as well as to saw and chop through small branches. That cutting ability comes in handy when I need a pole arm to stick this Trowel on to turn it into a spear.

I also keep one of these in my vehicle. It is an awesome bit of Hidden Survival Gear. No one blinks or thinks twice when they see it in my vehicle. If they do ask I tell them I use it to dig cat holes or spread salt when the way is icy. The cat hole part is true, but the real reason I keep this Trowel in my vehicle is because I can stick it on the end of a pole and make a spear.

Be prepared, survive!!!!

Inflatable Kayak

I love how this Inflatable Kayak fits into a small duffle. At just 30″ X 17″ X 10″ I can take this Kayak anywhere. I live between a bay and a river, and if its raining at high tide I can watch the river start to leak over its retaining wall, or just walk outside and squish through my yard. If you are like me and never know when a road could be flooded, you want something like this Inflatable Kayak to give you options. If I need to go save my neighbors or just want to keep an eye on water levels, this Kayak is perfect.

Of course if you like to hike and want to explore, you can’t beat this Inflatable Kayak.

Which is awesome. You want to use your gear before you need it to save your life. That is easy with this Kayak because it lets you enjoy the water. You can explore, fish, or paddle for exercise.

Post disaster it will only be a few seasons before bridges are destroyed. Without active water management and maintenance many of the structures we rely on every day are going to fail quickly. If you live around water, this Kayak is going to be your way to cross streams, lakes, and rivers!

Inflatable Kayak Scoring

This Inflatable Kayak can have a Moderate Impact on your survival and scores 271/1000. If you live by the water that score is going to go much higher, but I had to give it an overall score for everyone which cost it a few points.

Don’t let the number fool you. Being on the list of top thousand survival gear items is a big deal. Just being on the list makes this critical gear.

  • Built-in aluminum ribs define the bow and stern and improve tracking
  • 3 layers of material for extreme puncture resistance
  • PreAssembled at the factory. Simply unfold, inflate and attach the seat
  • High support, adjustable padded seat provides comfort for hours of paddling
  • Looks and paddles similar to a rigid hard-shell kayak with the portability of an inflatable
