This super video walks you through what materials you need to have in your survival kit. All of the things that are included will help maintain your body’s basic needs and help other people find you in case you need to be saved. Whether you are camping or whether you are in a survival situation, the kit should have everything you need to survive.
To make it all easy to remember, the uploader came up with the acronym BACKHOME which means:
B – Blaze and Burn
A – All weather blanket
C – Cordage
K – Knife
H – Head lamp
O – Orienteering Tools
M – Metal canteen
E – Emergency signal
Blaze And Burn – These are the materials needed to start and sustain fire. For matches and lighters, put them inside a water-proof container to keep them dry.
All Weather Blanket – You can use these reusable blankets to reflect heat away from you if you are in a hot environment and it can also serve as an insulator to direct the heat towards you during cold weather. It is waterproof, lightweight and durable and can also be used to signal for help, collecting rainwater and as an improvised shelter.
Cordage – These materials are used for binding things together. Examples are ropes and cords.
Knife – A knife is a very important tool to have during survival scenarios.
Head Lamp – For light, head lamps are the most effective. You can use both hands when working on something which you will not be able to do if you are using a hand-held flashlight. Make sure to also pack extra batteries.
Orienteering Tools – These are the things that you need in order for you to be going into the right direction. Having a map and a compass in the survival kit is a must.
Metal Canteen – Water is very important when you are in a survival situation so make sure you have a metal canteen to store it in. Safety reminder: never drink unsafe water because it can cause you your life. Boil it first to disinfect it also by using the canteen.
Emergency Signal – Include a signal mirror, strobe light and whistle in the kit. These will be used to call for help in case you need to be rescued.
The uploader was very clever in coming up with the acronym because it makes all these things easy to remember. BACKHOME will surely bring you back home.
