    I'll play.

    1. - My old Cold Steel Recon Scout. I have a nylon pouch sewn to its sheath which contains an Armageddon ferro rod, 3/8"x4" & scraper, some charcloth, a small diamond sharpener, two large Band Aids, and the sheath is wrapped with 25 feet of 550 paracord. I consider this "one item."

    2. - My old stainless steel coffee pot with wire bale.

    3. - An 8'x10' nylon tarp.

    I would not be too comfortable, but would get through several nights until I could get out of the situation.

    If that is one item then I'm hitching up the RV for my first pick! The storage shed is #2 and the Jeep with all it's gear is #3.
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    1.) A rag, a bone, & a hank of hair? (apologies to the late Nat King Cole.)

    2.) An egg, a match, & Bear Grylls? (You know your always safe with Bear, right?)

    Kyratshooter, that sounds like a plan to me! Why didn't I think of that??

    I figure I haven't really posted much. Since this thread was brought back from the dead or so it seemed since I have not seen it before I'll answer.

    I'd probably bring my cold steel bush man mini. I love this knife like fat children love cake.

    Secondly I would bring my dog. Without her I'm lost. She's great at finding small game and wanting to share it with me when she does catch something.

    Third I'd probably have my m1 carbine if I could bring anything. In it's gun case it has everything that's needed to keep it well maintained. The items in that case would probably be useful as well.

    If I could not bring the carbine well I'd probably toss in my woobie/poncho that are always wrapped together.

    That's probably my problem. I've been nowhere now for years.
