Beyond the needs of shelter, water, food... I would put medical skills and training right above combat training. I really appreciate posts like this especially when there are people posting things which are from field experience, etc. Just wanted to say thank you for the resources, it is always great having something to learn from, especially when so much of "survival" is really about maintaining the mind, and body.

Thank you for putting this thread together. I'm about to redo one kit, go through another and put together a little bigger one yet
