SURVIVAL DAY 24 (Hickory Stick)

I live in a very restrictive state, which means I need to be very careful as to what types of self defense weapons I keep in my everyday vehicle, which makes this Hickory Stick the perfect tool / self defense weapon. If I get pulled over and for some reason my car gets searched, no worries, I have a perfectly valid reason to have this Hickory Stick in my vehicle, its to check my trailer tires when I’m towing.

Of course, when the sh*t hits the fan, this is my first line of defense, and its a perfect non lethal tool for a human on human confrontation, as well as the perfect skull crushing weapon against the undead.

SURVIVAL DAY 17 (CRKT Provoke Kinematic Knife)

When I first read about this CRKT Provoke Kinematic Knife I thought, okay, a little gimmicky, but it looks interesting. Then I got to hold one and flick it open with my thumb, and I didn’t care, I had to have one…

It is a different feel than my normal folding knives, but there is something about that downward flick of my thumb and the solid click of this knife locking open that just sings to my soul.

Is it going to replace my regular folder I carry everyday? Well, not every day, but do I thoroughly enjoy this knife, absolutely.

SURVIVAL DAY 13 (Nature’s First Sea Salt, Fine Salt, 10 Pound Bucket)

Salt is vital to long term survival. It is critical for the preservation of food, and once you are living off the land, it is a basic mineral your body needs.

The average person consumes 5 to 7 pounds of Salt per year in the United States. That means that each of these 10 Pound Salt Buckets is basically a one to two year supply per person. My guess is that once your using
Salt to preserve the wild game your hunting, that amount will go up. I’d plan for a minimum of two buckets per person to store at your bolt hole.

Don’t wait for the zombie apocalypse to start before you begin preserving your food. Learn to salt your game now so you are ready for the Apocalypse!!!

  • FLAVOR – Real Salt is unlike any salt on earth. It’s subtly sweet, never bitter sea salt that makes every bite delicious. First try Real Salt, then try any other salt. The difference will amaze you!
  • NATURAL – Unrefined, unprocessed and ancient sea salt with trace minerals and no additives. Natural sea salt just the way nature made it, with nothing added and nothing removed
  • HEALTHY – Recommended by doctors! An ancient sea salt recommended by doctors and health professionals for its unique blend of trace minerals
  • VARIETY – Variety of packaging, sizing, and salt grain size (powder, fine, kosher, coarse), suitable for different application and use. Convenient refill pouches and shakers, perfect for food storage, and excellent for travel. Makes a practical and memorable gift for an individual or a whole family
  • MINED IN USA – Mined in Utah since 1958 from an ancient seabed protected from modern pollution. Compared to Himalayan, Celtic, Tibetan, Malaysian, French, Hawaiian, Irish, and Marine Sea Salts, Real Salt means fewer food miles, ethical labor standards, and sustainable practices along with its addictive sweet-salt taste. The only American Pink and Black Salt.

SURVIVAL DAY 12 (TRAVEL/CAMPING UTENSILS)

It is the little things that get you into trouble. Have you ever been on a camping trip and you realize you left your spoon at home? It is snowing and you have been looking forward to some hot stew to warm you up, but then you realize you have to drink it chunky style and it just sucks.

I’ve done this, and instead of drinking my stew with all the associated splashes that come with chunky soup tilted towards your face I spent at least half an hour, but probably more like an hour carving a spoon.

Now I keep a set of these Travel/Camping Utensils with my hiking gear as well as another set in my bug out bag.

Please don’t write me about how I should get the ones made out of titanium. For the price of a very small weight loss, I can buy two or three sets of these so I don’t sweat it if something gets damaged or lost while I’m fleeing the undead.

SURVIVAL DAY 8 (KAITO KA500 CRANK EMERGENCY RADIO)

There are a couple basic items you need to survive any emergency, Food, water, and protection are important, but they won’t let you know which way to go, or sometimes more importantly, which way not to go. To do that you need this Kaito KA500 Crank Emergency Radio. When the power goes out, the roads are flooded, or the forests are on fire, you need to be able to stay in touch with what is going on in the outside world, and you can’t be left stranded in danger by needing electricity or running out of battery packs.

SURVIVAL DAY 1 (SPYDERCO TENACIOUS PLAIN EDGE FOLDING KNIFE)

Last year my nephew came over for game night and when he put his car keys and this Spyderco Tenacious Plain Edge Folding Knife on the table I couldn’t help but pick this Knife up and flip it open and closed a few times. Ever since then it has been one of my favorite Knives.

The first thing that struck me was how light the Knife is. The second was how well it held an edge. My nephew is not that careful and he’s used the knife as a daily work tool for a few months and it was still razor sharp.

A year later and I can’t say enough good things about my Spyderco Folding Knife. I use it almost every day, and it is a must have item in my pocket because you never know when the Zombie Apocalypse is going to start.
