One thing you need to train your mind to do for a survival situation is to improvise with the things you have available to you. Common, everyday items can be used in a survival situation to provide you with the basics needed to survive. Some examples of things you can use that most everyone may have are:

Cell Phone: (aside from the obvious calling for help)

Tampon:

Condom:

Bandana:

Trash Bags:

Chapstick:

WD-40:

Zip Ties:

Drinking Straws:

Aluminum Foil:

550 Paracord:

Duct Tape/Gorilla Tape:

Vaseline:

PVC:

Paperclips:

Plastic Bottle:

Milk Jug:

Bobby Pin:

Plastic Shopping Bag:

Dental Floss:

T-Shirts:

Pencil Sharpener:

Extension Cords:

Leather Belt:

Q-Tips/Cotton Swabs:

There are other uses for these items. You can probably think of some yourself. That's the point of this post, to get you thinking about alternative uses for everyday items in a SHTF scenario.

Holy fucking SHIT that's a lot of info all at once.

Useful, though. Thanks!

On a slightly related note, will you be attending this year's Dirty Scouts Jamboree?

Tampons also make good improvised wound dressings if you pull them apart a bit. You can also stick them in stab, gunshot or other puncture wounds to soak up blood. They're also good stuffed in your mouth if you've got a bleeding gum or are bleeding from losing a tooth.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$55.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $55.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $55.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $55.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

It takes forever to do profiles via smartphone.. I'll fill this out on a laptop later.. me and my wife, Straps, recently moved from NC to central Ohio and are looking for like minded folks. Oldschool punk and metal etc is our tastes but not limited to. She does Vocals as well as I.. I also play bass. And am currently working on a demo. Think serial killer true crime punk.. not 'horror punk'.. true horror, yes.
