Things You Need When Zombies, Aliens, Vampires, Etc Take Over the World — Or if you have to survive in the wild

Zombies: Source

When you actually have to survive with much…taking less with you is actually more helpful. You don’t need chocolate, you don’t need a huge saw. The less you take the less you have to carry, and the better and more productive items that really make a difference. It’s not like you are going to drag a suitcase through the snow, or over the mountains. If you want to survive anything whether or not it’s zombies, you need to be prepared. Less is more, be simple, be effective. The thing is don’t be too simple, you don’t want to combine all the things you need like a compass, knife, etc on one gadget, cause if you lose that you are screwed. Do not rely on a solar panel charger, if you rely on it too much and it breaks or stops functioning the things you use it will will be useless. Do not depend on electricity.

1. Bandanas.

If you don’t know why you need bandanas (plural) you are already in trouble. Bandanas are magic. They can do so many useful things. Check out this Blog: Survival Cache for a list of 30 uses for Bandanas. The things I use bandanas for : mainly as a water filter, its really great as a water catcher too.You can clean everything you need to, tie a wound, and there are a million other uses. So when the zombies chase you, at least you can have fresh filtered water, you can tie off your arm after you’ve been bitten, you can cover your mouth when the aliens set fires to the buildings and you need smoke protection.

2. Pocket Knife

You do not want a knife with a spoon, fork, and nail file. You don’t want a pocket knife that is huge and bulky. You need a pocket knife with functions that you actually need. Do not get a pocket knife with a USB drive, because there may not be a use for it, really? The aliens can probably infiltrate the drive anyway. Also you shouldn’t get one with a little flash light in it, because when the battery goes out you will get depressed, and its just a disappointment waiting to happen. Plus you really do not want a pocket knife with thirty types of little scissors. I recommend the Swiss Army Forester One Hand. It has a strong grip, the right sharp tools to get the job done, and no excuses.

3. Antibiotics, Pain Medication, Anti-Histamine

These are absolute necessities, and if you have to bring a lot of something…this is what to bring. Infection is common everywhere, trust me you won’t be able to bring bandaids, but things can get pretty rough in the wild. You need an anti-histamine for an allergic reaction as well. You also want a broad antibiotic that can treat a variety of conditions because you never know what will happen.

4. Fire Steel

Lighting a fire with sticks is way hard, and when I saw way hard, I mean you need an alternative. Fire steel can light things on fire in almost all weather conditions and it will last a long time. Its small and you can take it with you everywhere, just don’t lose it.


5. Mosquito Net

These can be great to keep out the mosquitoes , but also as fishing nets. You can thing of a multitude of ways to use this. They are super light too, and don’t take up much room.

6. A Canteen

Obviously to carry water, you can’t get one that is too big, because it will get exhausting carrying it around all day.

7. Whistle

8.Small Mirror for signaling

9. Kool Aide – For the Sugar

10. Good Shoes

Good Luck

Funny, I actually carry a knife (griptilian), fire steel, 180 lumen flashlight, and a mini survival kit on me at all times! Water bottle and eye glass repair kit are in my backpack as well!

I think we should be best friends

One thing you should add to your kit is a flashlight. The brighter the better! Mine is a fenix LD20. it has a high, low, strobe, and sos settings.
