I just finished watching two post apocalyptic movies, "The Road" and "The Book of Eli". The Road portrayed living in a post apocalyptic world much more realistically than The Book of Eli. So I started to think, that what if the apocalypse would come now, nuclear war so the sun would be unseen for the next 30 years? I quickly assembled a basic survival kit from my modern militaria that I would have as a base for my survival kit. Have you every toyed around with the idea? Even assembled a small survival package on a boring sunday, just as I did? I came up with the following:
Finnish M/61 gas mask, all I would need is a new functioning filter
Finnish M/61 gas mask bag, contains at the moment my BW flecktarn parka, but has enough space for much more
Finnish field canteen
A small first aid bandage held in place by bands made to keep your pants above your shoes.
All those fit on the shoulder strap of the bag, but wore around the hip.
