Hitting the airport is always a situation that creates some anxiety. For the average person there are concerns about things like missing your flight, TSA frisking and accusations, something terrible happening during the flight.
If you are a prepper you are worried about all of that plus you are also thinking about surviving a plan crash on a mountain, landing at your destination moments before a collapse or getting back home during a SHTF scenario. All of this plays in the mind of a prepper.
With the advent of the TSA things got a lot stricter on flights. Suddenly, we had to consider each and every pointy and gelled item in our bags. It makes things tough on preppers. Here is a list of 20 items that you can carry on the airplane that the TSA have approved.
- First Aid Kit
- 550 Cord
- Water Purification Tabs
- Water Filter
- Empty Water Bottle
- Disposable Lighter
- Ferro Rod
- Silver Coins
- N95 Masks
- Hand Sanitizer
- Bleach Wipes
- SAS Survival Guide
- Preppers Survival Navigation
- Space Blanket
- Bug Spray
Let’s be honest, no matter what you bring on a plane you are going to be terrified of the things that could go wrong. If you are a prepper you know that there is no magic list of items to bring that could make a trip bulletproof.
You have developed a base of operations that allows you to address the very worst disasters. All your comms, food, and weapons are at that home. In a true SHTF scenario you are going to want to be there and no matter what TSA allows, they will never fill that hole.
However, life is good and things are great! So go forth and enjoy some of that, too! Don’t blow your next trip or vacation because you are too scared to enjoy your life.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
