If You Could Only Have 2 Items

Whether preparing for a planned backcountry adventure or dealing with a survival emergency the kit you carry has a huge impact on your survival success.  

Last week I polled the blog followers to see what people would choose to carry if they could only carry two items. Obviously a worst case scenario but none the less a realistic issue during a true emergency. 

It was interesting to see the results. A total of 18 votes were received. Here is the breakdown:


  • Fixed Blade/ Fire Starter  -  10 votes
  • Axe / Matches. -  5 Votes
  • Hinged Saw / Tarp  -  2 Votes
  • Tarp / Lighter  -  1 Vote

This is a great discussion piece. Although there was a majority there is no correct answer. Each person will base their decision and vote on their knowledge, skills and abilities. 

I want to thank everyone who took the time to vote. I have posted a new poll and look forward to watching the results.
