If you haven't actually opened the package and used one of those small rescue sheets how do you know what benefit you can get from it? It is worth the price of opening it up to find out.
It is my experience, the small "rescue sheets" are only good for a reflective fire.
I have an Adventure Medical Thermo-Lite 2.0 Bivvy Sack, which is the first one I can use successfully as an actual bivy to supplement a backpacking "sleeping quilt" or all the clothing I have with me.
I have an "Army surplus" wool blanket in my vehicle for use to treat for shock. I came upon a car wreck one time. I had to purchase a new "Army surplus" blanket, and, I was glad to do it. I have an "Army surplus" wool blanket in my vehicle right now.
I also have cold weather gear including -60 sleeping bags and pads, and sufficient food for two weeks.
I also have a packed 50 L Lowe Alpine pack.
I change out the "shelf stable" food as needed.
That is my pimary reason for selecting "shelf stable" food I am willing to eat: I rotate it out, by eating it up, and replacing it with new supplies. I pick up what I need to add, almost every time I do my grocery shopping.
I didn't watch the video, just the displayed frame. That guy has enough firepower to take anyone's food and shelter from them.
That is what those websites and videos are about! Why isn't that obvious to everyone?
I put up my "strategies" of being well provisioned and not noticed, at two "boards". I had my computer attacked, crashing it incessantly in two instances at survivalist boards.Only someone having "administrative privileges" at the forum has the access. Then, I was "banned" on a pretense. The other "board" "reorganized" and all my "posts" disappeared. When I tried to "log in" I wasn't registered. That "board" was by invitation only. I had been invited by "Te Hopo" from the other "board". But those boards exist for killers and wannabe killers. They don't want helpful facts. They presume, it is a "dog-eat-dog" world.
Dogs are better than that.
I lived at a house in a very posh neighborhood near Portland, OR where their son (a grown man) showed me his air gun, said he would walk over to the neighbor, kill him, and take his well-stocked pantry to supplement his own. I told the neighbor.
The neighbor said he thought I was "insane". I guess the people there desearve each other.
I left there.
If I saw someone with any of "that kit" I would hide. In fact, that is my strategy for "their idea" of "survival".
I don't see how we can do a survival challenge that will prove anything. If you are hiking you already have what you need.
I think you said, on another thread, we know a great deal other people do not know.
That is a fact.
That is how it is for every generation. The ones who "know something" need to show the others.
I say, people in this generation have not been "empowered" to self-respect or self-reliance.
Behind my "efforts" has been the presumption to "how to really live well".
I got behind the "idea" of International Outward Bound, that the "old guys" outlived the strong young men because the strong young men "just gave up" too easily, that they had never found out their own strength.
I think I will show my "backpacking" and "shelf stable" pantry, although I still do not know how to make a high-quality video without making big megabytes that will take more than a day to finish and upload.
Even so, a well-stocked pantry is useless if it isn't "deployed" in an instant, for example, for earthquake preparedness. For example, in San Francisco, CA I had a "earthquake preparedness" box at home, in my car, and at the job. I wore practical shoes to and from the job. I kept my "dress shoes" in my desk drawer at the job.
In Montana, it used to be the law to have to carry their "survival" gear in their vehicle if "called up" for forest fire fighting. I still follow that practice, if stuck far from shelter on the highway in "Montana winter".
