The Terrible Ten

Post by Heliux » Wed May 30, 2018 4:59 am

Assuming a longer stay:
1. Hatchet/axe head
2. draw knife; bark strip, board splitting, dowel/handle making, bark scrapper, shaving
3. saw blade 3" (preferable with nuts and bolts)
4. spiral auger 1-2" (drill blade) for drilling holes (more thinking for pegged construction, but there's tons of applications)
5. my first aid kit; feel like this could be a cop-out to say "kit", but I've had some issues in the bush that dictate the necessity for quality pharmaceuticals
6. bottle; :|
7. pot with lid; iron or steel; might be able to get by with clay pots, but I've grown up with the heat distribution, so it's what I'm used to
8. proper clothing; especially a warm weather proof rain coat.
9. butcher knife; makes life easier
10. journal/pen; endless entertainment, thoughts, art. It's said that a samurai could practice the code of Bushido in a windowless room, for the rest of us, we have to write shit down.
