iPhone Survival: Not Just for the Urban Jungle Anymore
When I think survival, I think "Rule of 3's", 3 minutes without air, 3 hours without shelter, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food. Next, I might think about specific items to have with me so I can get out of the situation. Cordage and tools are two items hard to duplicate in the wild. Not impossible, but hard. Just having a good knife and some 550 cord might make the difference. The knife will help you make shelter and the cordage will help hold it together (unless your building a debris shelter). Most good survival items are multipurpose too. The knife can be used to cut things, be an axe of sorts with the help of batoning, be the striker for a fire steel, be a signal mirror (if polished), a weapon, self defense item, etc. The cordage can help hold your shelter together, be part of a bow drill, a snare, an arm sling, etc. Lots of uses there to say the least, and I didn't mention using the inner strands yet. So, what if you could have the following list in a 4 5/8" X 2 5/8" X 3/4" water resistant package?
