PSK Entry Contestant #5

Our next entry in the PSK Contest comes from Alex over at TEOTWAWKI Blog; where you can find a lot of good survival/preparedness tips. So check it out when you get a chance. He based some of his kit off the current events that recently took place in Colorado. Which I thought was a good twist to a PSK (I too started going over my own Blow Out kit after hearing about that tragedy). I must also say great photography Alex!

"This kit is intended to serve multipurpose keep me alive duty, with contents to address major survival needs--a minimal gunshot wound kit, shelter, water bag and purification tablets, fire starting equipment, signalling equipment and some other essential items. It also packs a capable flashlight and multitool that those who have been following our $40 a week series will recognize--the Fenix E11 and Leatherman Sidekick."
Blow Out Kit
"While you don't often see traumatic injury gear in a small survival kit, it can save your life in case of a serious laceration, gunshot wound, etc. I'm sure this is top-of-mind for many of us, given the tragedy in Colorado. The kit isn't a full-blown blowout kit, but it does contain a TK-4 tourniquet and a package of compressed gauze, as well as a pair of mini-EMT shears, a folding razor and a few safety pins. Gorilla tape and the water bag can be used to create an improvised chest seal if needed."
