I think it's an awesome idea!

Are we designing this kit specifically for Madmax and the Florida environment, or making a general purpose kit? Just trying to think of what I might want out there. For an overnight I would have to say water and shelter first, then fire, then food and/or something to kill the time.

It can be anything your heart desires, man. It could be a Stuck at the Mall with the Wife Survival Kit. It could be My Bike Busted a Chain and I'm in the Middle of Chicago Survival Kit. It could be the Godzilla! Survival Kit. It could be the The Game is a Blowout and My Team is Getting Creamed Survival Kit. It could be the Wait, My Anniversary is Today? Survival Kit.

Or it could be your standard survival kit.

Use your imaginations, but make it something YOU would use. :)

Tony,

I'm probably going to regret this offer, but if you want to do this overnight in NC I'll take the second place kit and spend the night out with you. 
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

Are you guys who are going to test the winning kits going to be bringing your own knives and pots?
 
And are the winning kits after being tested going to be returned?

I'll return or replace the kit I use.  I haven't decided what else I'll bring with me.

Thanks for the answers.   I'm going to change mine around a little bit for showing in contest.  If its not a winner I have inherited items I'll be keeping in there for my own use.  :)   
 
This has been fun by the way.. finding things that fit.. things that could be multi-used and practical.

Wow, BigHat! That was a great kit. I especially like the little soda can pot you made. I was thinking about where to find a close fitting little metal container and it never occurred to me to make one out of an existing can. Impressive!

The rest of the contents look well planned. The fire kit is nice too. Compact, but complete.

You have definitely set the bar. :thumbsup:

Also I mailed out a mess of pouches today, expect them in a few days folks.  Except you Canadian guys, the word grenade will probably slow them down through customs  >:D

So I just called it a pouch.

Awesome! This rocks!

I'm pretty excited to play some catch up with Mr. Hat.

For me, this will be more a BH tutorial than contest, as I practice the sincerest form of flattery on his kit...

Great idea.

Nice entry, do you think could you squeeze a bullion cube and an air mattress in as well?   ;)

I personally like the aquapur tabs and gallon bag, takes care of the water processing issue. 

Good stuff.

Here is the store that I purchased them from. It is local store so I walk in and get stuff. He does a lot of business from Amazon and his website.

This sounds like another great hotel room challenge for me.  Will see what I can dig up.  Looking forward to seeing more mini kits.

Great kit Greyhound!

- one pair of foam ear plugs for bobbers

Great idea... I'm totally stealing it for my personal pocket fishing kit!!   (but not for the grenade pouch challenge)

- 25 pieces of Berkley Gulp green smelly maggots

How well do these work? They seem like another great addition to my survival/pocket kits.

We have had good results on small panfish with them off of the rivers edge. I wish I fished more to try out some of the other Berkely products.
