    I remember when I did the Baja Texas trail starting from Tecate many many moons ago, a blanket is good enough to act as a tarp when we stop at high noon. Having another blanket around you takes some getting used at first, but later, its okay.

    Buy a kindle and buy a bunch of survival books. Instant one stop survival book library on one device. Although charging a kindle in the woods might be difficult.

    You can quote me on this.....

    I have a HUGE survival kit. It has almost everything I could need. Books on identifying things, tools, canned and dried food, bottled water, first aid supplies. I started my kit after reading this FREE book that I got.

    I'll pass on giving them my email address. Just a sloppy way to get a mailing list put together. What do you plan on surviving?
