hello. i was wondering what 3 survival items people would choose if they cant have anything else. just as far as starting off. this is also a question to entertain others. like at work so i like to hear ideas. so what 3 items would you choose? we can assume a extra set of clothes and items to keep things up such at a knife sharpener. a fire arm counts as a item. i will go first. i have to deal with being around a urban environment which does have suburbs. when walking i can go into the country if i felt like it. so here are my top picks. 1. walking stick. good for walking and good for smashing. you can learn to use more effectively against hostile humans. 2. water proof backpack. one that is water resistant. i might go with a mid sized instead of a giant out door back pack. it can be great for a make shift pillow to. 3. a good cutting tool. hard choice. im attracted to a mid sized machete. yet i will go with a longer folding knife with a sturdy build because of my environment and i lean toward urban survival with living experience and inexperience out doors. yet its hard to find a good build that wont break under pressure. so what are your choices?
