I don't know if I like the idea of gum.  I'm going to have to chew on it a bit.

Bump for the stragglers and a big high five for all the kits posted so far. 

Everyone is going above and beyond on creativity.

Hey now.. theres some serious thought behind that gum...    :P
 
McGyver used it for many things.  Gum and wrapper.   
 
But.. gum is good for staving off hunger pains.   If its a peppermint flavor it helps with calming down stomach aches.   And if you have troubles with sugars it will kick in the thought of eating and help with that too. ( doc told me that).
 
ANd I have to agree..  that beef jerky looks delish!   
 
WW.

I thought I heard somewhere that gum can make you hungrier. I heard it tricks your stomach into thinking it's getting food (juices and whatnot from gum), so the acid starts churning preparing for the food that never comes... This would make you more hungry and have excess acid.

I could be wrong, though...

mmmmm. jerky...
What's that smell?

Wow Zammer the beef jerky was pretty cool! I think the only way to top that would be.... bacon! :D

I can get mine done real quick. I think I have the necessary items I planned to include all at the house now finally.

Ok, finally got a chance to put one together. Though I am sad to say I neglected to include any first aid or chemical water purifying tablets. :(

The contents are:

A cut down beer bottle. This was one of the thick aluminum bottles, thicker than a can. I sanded the rim so it won't snag on the pouch or be uncomfortable to drink from. Can be used for cooking and drinking, and collecting water from seeps or vines, among other things. A bit on the small side for boiling water for purification purposes, but it is better than nothing.

A slow cooker liner bag. This bag holds a few quarts, and is heat resistant so it can be used to boil in. Best way to use it would be to fashion a frame of sticks to hold it open and use the rock boiling method. Can be used for storage, transport, and purification of water, as well as cooking.

Wenger Swiss Army Backpacker. Saw, large and small blades, can opener, screwdriver, awl and corkscrew.

1/4"x3" ferro rod wrapped with 18' of braided polypropylene cordage. Not as strong as paracord but it is tough stuff and it fits.

Mini bic lighter.

Mini liquid filled compass.

Small "cord end" whistle.

Book of matches in zipper storage bag.

Chicken and beef bouillon cubes in sandwich bag.

Capsule with snare/utility wire (can make bail for pot or snares, etc.) on spool, fishing line (spider wire) on spool, split shot sinkers, perch hooks wrapped in tape, snap swivels, needles, and small bit of jute for tinder. Jute could be soaked in bouillon to make a fish attractant (possibly).

Tea light candle.

Well, This really was a Challenge for me. I just kept down sizing all the stuff I wanted in the kit.

Here it is closed.


Here are the altoids contents.
Cotton pads, small magnesium ferro rod fire starter, Peanut lighter, (The fluid has been in there a solid 2 years and it still lit right up.), 50 ft of mechanics wire .040 ga. Plastic vial with fish lure bell sinker and 3 split shots.12 foot leader 30lbs test., a bar of soap and three dehydrated compressed towels. a fourth in the pouch. I have a magnetized needle too it's sitting on a stack of neodymium magnets overnight so not pictured.


all inside the tin



Out side the tin is a poncho, Gerber paraframe, small bottle of purell hand sanitizer, A signal mirror, 3 band aides, Spool of dental floss, a small ziplock with salt and pepper. I guess I could put the mirror inside the tin and maybe add cordage to the pouch?

Very nice kit, glad to see the pouch arrived.

OK...so when this went up, I thought "hey cool!  This can be fun and I have a kit already made that will fit right in there!"
[/size]
[/size]Well...yeah, I think I still own that kit...but I sure as hell can't find it! 
[/size]
[/size]So, I got this tossed together tonight (amidst kids, school, work, visitors, neighbor kids, looming deadlines, wife re-arranging the house...still, and trying to get a pile of parts replaced on my Suburban so I can pass the state safety inspection and get it registered.
[/size]
[/size]So...hopefully the time has not fallen yet!  'Cuz here is what I got foraged together...
[/size]
[/size]
[/size]
[/size]Yes, it is snapped shut:
[/size]
[/size]
[/size]...and yes, it is stuffed!
[/size]
[/size]
[/size]Contents:
[/size]
[/size]Pouch, tin can container, ramen soup mix for salts and flavor, hot sauce 'cus survival doesn't need to be suffering...besides, Cholula can make cockroaches taste good.  Followed by some powdered lemonade mix: this is Crystal Light because it is what I have.  It should be a not-sugar-free brand IMHO...but this is the sport mix with Gator-aide like stuff in it. 
[/size]Next is a small glass jar (yes glass...thick mustard bottle glass that can be knapped into a point or blade if need be) with a inner tube band to cushion it.  Inside resides a pile of small treble hooks for fishing or snares.  (hey, in a survival situation, hooks on a snare is definitely NOT cheating!) It has about 50 feet of 10 lb fishing line wrapped around the neck like a hobo reel and another band to secure it.  Inside are also iodine tabs and vaseline-soaked cotton balls.
[/size]Under that is a big safety pin...for things that one would need a safety pin for: closing large, gushing wounds, as a closure on a tattered jacket that was ripped up to use as a snake-bite tourniquet, or just fer pickin yer teech after chowin' a barbacoa'ed gator...or a cockroach and worm salad.
[/size]Next is a roll of orange line...about 40 feet.  Or maybe 20, I really don't remember.  I was going to use a roll of 25' of cat5 cable, which had four twisted pairs of solid copper wire for about 200 feet of line total....but I can't find my thrashed cat5 cable...it's in my other survival kit.
[/size]Then there are a couple of inner-tube rubber lines, because I can...they fit.
[/size]THe barlow style knife was a last-minute choice...my BSA knife would not fit.  Thought it would have been appropriately punny (be prepared!) but oh well.  I did need to include something robust enough to really use, so I went with the barlow over my SAK's as it is a bit tougher, sharper and both blades are fully usable as well as it is easier to hold on to and doesn't snap shut as easy.  ...and my good little lock-blade is in my work pants and I'm too tired to go fetch it.
[/size]Alcohol pads, MRE matches and a Air Force survival spark striker are next.  Also is one of my cartridge shell tinder matches with a band to hold it together.  The white plastic bundle is the cotton balls that fist in the glass mustard jar. 
[/size]Last is a bottlecap.  Yup, a bottle cap.  My son and I found out it makes pretty decent shavings for tinder bundles on soft wood and dry inner bark...with a much lower chance of cutting one's self.  Plus you have a bottlecap if you find a bottle that needs capping...or an eye patch, or a bow-drill socket, or a tooth pick for missing teeth, or a thimble for field-made sewing needles, or bait for a racoon trap, a tiny soup bowl, tie a stick to it for a spoon...or about anything else one can think of.

There are still a few folks who haven't gotten their kits posted yet. 

No need for anyone to rush, we are looking at a late spring date for this.  It's still wintery in the North Carolina mountains.  I had a foot of snow last week.

As to two of B & B's finest, Max for sure. 

I still have some pouches that I will mail out for the cost of postage if anyone else wants to join in.

We'll definitely have a second get together this summer.  As to U.W. two pouches is two more than he needs.  The man has skills.

Great kits guys. As a BnB noob I'm not eligible for the competition, but since I use a MOLLE grenade pouch to carry my PSK here it is (again ;) ):




Note that my pouch has been modded with an additional snap on the front, allowing me to carry a transpiration bag folded up under the Otterbox. Oh, and since I don't like camo belt pouches, it's been hit with some OD spray paint which has half worn off over the years. Apart from that, it's a stock standard SDS MOLLE II grenade pouch in Woodland Camouflage Cordura.
Don't kill unless for the pot. Don't fell a green tree for a pole if there are dry poles nearby. Study the bush, learn to read its secrets; watch the mason fly building and go to the ant for another lesson... then you'll realise the bush is your friend.

Wow, Great looking kit Buzzacott! I like the idea of of the extra snap to extend the pouch to allow the otterbox. The otterbox keeps the kit dry and organized.

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

You haven't missed it.

We are going to run this until everyone who wants to participate has a chance (within reason). 

Why rush it when everyone is having so much fun? 

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.

Awesome. So I can redo mine? I'll post here but consider it not an entry as I already posted one?

I sent out a grenade pouch this week so there is a least one more entry to go.  If anyone else wants to participate I can send you a pouch for the cost of shipping.

I found a few more.  8)

I'm happy we're still going! I feel as if I should give each of you something, if I can. And, I'd love to see more kits!!!
