    Post Apocalypse Survival Kit

    I was just thinking now, if every major city on earth were to be destroyed, and I was able to go out in the wilderness with 5 or so people, what would i bring?
    With what you could fit in a duffel bag and a backpack or briefcase, what would you bring?

    -The basic medical stuff is a must, like anti bacterial stuff, so thats in the bag.
    -Definately a few knives, for obvious reasons.
    -Rope and string would be neccesary, and wouldn't take up much space.
    -A hammer! There are so many things you can do with a hammer.
    -A screwdriver. If you think about it, they are very practical, even if you don't use them for screwing...the mechanical one.
    -A gun. Durr.
    -A sleeping bag, just a small simple one, not a plush comforter.
    -You know those foldable water bottles? Yeah, those are useful.
    I can't think of anything else, post your guys' ideas here too! This is going to be fun, like a camping trip with the rest of the C.A. gang.

    LOL!
    how great would that be! Get as many CA.org'ers together and take the basics... just roleplay that the rest of the world is destroyed..
    We could get our sketchbooks and art supplies and paint our travels from a post-apocalyptic point of view.

    's been a while since I've been in scouts.. I could use a good campout...

    one thing I'd bring is Chewing Gum ... gots as many uses as a hammer.

    We'd need some-sorta device to restrain ourselves in the event we run into any post-ap women... gotta keep the brotherly spirit from ripping appart.

    An axe. A weapon and a tool used for cutting trees to build shelter. You forgot matches. Or flent and steel, but that sucks because when you miss the steal then you cut your knuckles.

    I was just thinking this over. A katana. Think of how many things you can do with a katana.
    Chewing gum would wear out, wouldn't it? Lots and lots of chewing gum, then

    An axe would be a good thing to have around. Useful. I hope this thread gets better and better .

    A camping trip with fellow concept artists would actually be pretty fun. We could teach eachother tricks of the trade. Life survival classes, that would be awesome. They should have that on a college thing, survival class.

    You'd need something that could chip rock or flint, then u could make makeshift knives!! Another thing is a gasmask, cause u might come across clouds of sulpherus gases or something... A hammer is good, axes...good, and finaly a laser gun with solar panels to charge up the batteries, cause a gun would run out of bullets

    I'd have to say nail clippers. I've never gotten good enough at chewing my nails properly.

    Fridegg: Well you better practice before the world ends

    Georgem: You could just use charcoal from a fire, or a stick in the sand.

    Shadow: lol! Yeah, anything reusable is a great idea. And its not what you can find, its what you want, so let your guys' imagination go freee.

    Flipse: Lots and lots of duct tape

    copper wire, perfect for making snares
    fishing line and hooks

    cant think of anything else right now. i didnt even think of a gun...dont really kow why it would be that useful either

    We'd need some-sorta device to restrain ourselves in the event we run into any post-ap women... gotta keep the brotherly spirit from ripping appart
    haha, i dunno, i think a lack of deoderant and razors would restrain me pretty well not too mention possible mutations...eeeewwwwwwwwwwww

    A couple of flares the next best thing to a flashlite. Some extra gasoline in case you find a working car. And some money/jewelry to trade or barter with. Lastly a heaping ton of water and toliet paper.

    How about some gernades. You can throw them inside of a bear's den during hybernation and blow them up! They won't know what hit 'em! Plus, its a meal cooked in 5 seconds.

    GECK
    Bozar
    Ammo
    Psycho/Mentats
    Advanced Power Armor MKII

    You don't need any more than that!

    A water purifyer would be a pretty useful thing. I don't know about the grenades though .
    The toilet paper: use leaves man! Not poison oak though, ouch!
    amphex: you don't know what a katana is? its a japanese sword, and it rockors any boxors, in half.
    aven: do you want me to take off the limitiations on what you can bring?

    How would you use leaves in the winter? Wouldn't it just crumple up?

    Anarchy: grr Toilet paper wouldn't work, just do it like the cavemen did. Or didn't, rather.
    Actually a crowbar would be really useful. I feel like playin some half life now

    A horse, rifle and shells, axe, traps, a couple of tarps, flint, rope, and a good skinning knife. It's all you really need. Actually you don't need the horse, but it would be handy. lol
    Art gives me a life of extreme challenge, frustration, accomplishment and contentment. Nothing less will do!

    A pet monkey so he could pick nuts and cocunuts for you. Plus, you could throw rocks at him and make him dance.
