Default Re: Do you carry a survival kit?

I went yes because in the boat I keep enough stuff to cope with whatever. When I park at skinny water and hike up stream I stuff the most important items into a small pack and take it. Relying on a cell phone will not work because we still have many areas where there is no coverage. The boat items include fire starter; MSR Wisperlight, A small Sig bottle filled with Kero for wet fire starts, a roll of toilet paper to use as a wick with the kero, Granola bars (a whole bunch of em) MRE or De Hydrated meals, machete, etc, etc. Of course I also have the Coast Guard box O goodies as well, air horn, sky flares and etc. If I don't wander too far from the mother ship it all stays stowed on board.

In the pack I travel light but if I'm bush fishing the machete is important as is the fire starter.
