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 Santizer
- Bleach Wipes
- SAS Survival Guide
- Preppers Survival Navigation
- Space Blanket
- Bug Spray
Lets 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 bullet proof.
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! Dont blow your next trip or vacation because your are too scared to enjoy your life.
