Instead of expensive tents, sheath knives, sleeping bags, and other conventional outdoor gear, Jim focuses on compact, lightweight, and even disposable, use-once-and-discard emergency equipment, and all of it dirt cheap! Learn how to:
- find standard survival kit components at the lowest prices
- create a poor man’s survival kit for free from common household items
- collect or create your own edged tools, water containers, cookware, fire- and shelter-making gear, and weapons for very little money
- assemble a complete kit of new gear for under $10
Dozens of photos show examples of inexpensive but functional wilderness survival kits, as well as step-by-step instructions for creating your own poor man’s gear. If you are a hiker, hunter, camper, preparedness type, homeless nomad, or other wilderness adventurer operating within a narrow budget, this book is for you!
