    Petroleum jelly and hand sanitizer is something that I never leave home without. These assist with first aid, skin protection, hygiene, and firestarting. You can make firestarter in the field and supplement with petroleum jelly or hand sanitizer. Almost any piece of rusty metal and a hard rock will make a spark if you don’t have your firestarting equipment. It is the action of flaking piece of metal at high speed that creates the hot metal shard that appears to be a “spark”.

  4. dont forget petroleum jelly saturated cotton balls for tinder. This burns for a long while and the jelly keeps it some what resistant against water, at least until it starts to burn away.

    If you can filter water, do it! But if you can, boil it!
    I’ll add the Aquamira Frontier Filter with seems a good small device.

    I stand corrected—— FEMA recommends

    Boil bring to a rolling boil and maintain for 3-5 minutes. After the water cools, pour it back and forth between two clean containers to add oxygen back; this will improve its taste.

    great job Selica

    I don’t believe you need 2 boil water 4 five minutes? I think you just bring water 2 a boil, which in most cases usually takes 5 minutes.

    Wildernessoutfitters has some good vids on basic surival kits (the host is also really easy to understand) and so does bushcraftonfire.
    I like this channel though b/c u don’t see many female wilderness surivalists.

  10. Where do you get the Adventure Medical Kits guide? Is this something that can be downloaded/printed at home?
