Survival Kit in a Can is simply brilliant
Despite being a hardcore geek, I love the great outdoors. Camping, hiking, canoing and fishing are some of my favorite things to do when it warms up. I enjoy “roughing it” and do my best to leave most of my technology at home. I do carry my cell phone and some electric lanterns, but that’s usually about the extent of it, which is nice. Here’s a low-tech survival kit that almost everyone should keep with them when braving the wild.
This looks like a tin can of sardines or tuna, but it’s actually backed with twenty-five essential items which I have listed below. I find this design to be brilliant because it is waterproof. Most first-aid kits that you see these days are made from plastic and are not airtight, which can ruin several of the vital items.
A non-aspirin pain reliever, adhesive bandage, alcohol prep pad, antibiotic ointment, book of matches, compass, chewing gum, sugar, salt, energy nugget, duct tape, fire starter cube, first aid instructions, fish hook and line, note paper, pencil, razor blade, safety pin, reflective signal surface, tea bag, waterproof bag, whistle, and wire clip.
While it does suck that you won’t be able to reseal the container, it’s cheap enough that you won’t have to worry too much over it. This Survival Kit in a Can will only set you back $13.
