Good Evening Ladies and Gentlemen,
Once again it is time for another installment of Nocturnal Podcast. Please join me today as we talk about:
Episode Np006 Beginning with the Basics
Starting from ground zero we need
5. Energy (IE Fire,Heat,Light,Cooking)
We don’t plan for the End of the world. We need to plan for everyday( IE Life!)
-See the Disclaimer Page
- This is not an exhaustive list, just the beginning of where I am going to start.
I give you options for the basics.
The 96 Kit:
- We need food in the kit(small, compact, lightweight, high energy,)
-We need some sort of container to carry water.
(I recommend at least (2) 1 liter stainless steel bottles with the ability to have a carabiner attached to it for ease of portability)
-Medical Supplies (A basic first aid kit)
- Creature comforts (hard candy, extra socks)
-Your Bag Weight will be IMPORTANT !!!
-if it’s too heavy you won’t want to carry it over long distance
- if it’s too light you may not have everything that you need in it
-Your finances will dictate what you can purchase for your 96 Kit at this time .(Don’t be concerned about getting the latest and greatest just START) Go cheap and upgrade.
- Being ready is important!
-Look in flea markets
– Goodwill is great
– Go cheap but try to get the best value for your money.
Chivalry is not dead!!!
- Giving your life is noble but misguided.
– You are important.
- Take care of yourself in order to take care of others.
- It is our responsibility to care for others.
- You may not want a lead position but will be required to do it anyway.(Be ready to lead)
– Think Ahead !!!
– More on 96kit
– a good folding knife
- a good fixed blade knife ( a K-BAR is my favorite here but your budget may not allow for it)
– A first aid kit (prefab or modified) I know I have mentioned this one twice but I do so because at some point you WILL need it.
– Ace Bandages(different sizes)
- flint and steel
- magnesium starter
- forever match
– Bic lighter
- Make a fire kit( A Bic and some cotton balls in a zip lock bag)
This is just the beginning of the BASIC 96 kit. Please listen to the full podcast to hear all of the information.
As I say every time you bring the map and I’ll bring the compass and together we will blaze a path to more independence, self sufficiency, and continually gaining knowledge in an ever changing world.
