Preparedness on the go

In winter, weather can be cold and weary. Ice, snow and fallen trees may block roads, making your ride back home a bit more adventurous by car (or in worst case: impossible). With public transport, chances are your trip will be much longer and will involve extra waiting or even a sleepover at a cold train- or busstation. These are only a few of the reasons why winter asks for a different kind of being prepared on the go.

In this article I wanted to share a few things to ponder about for this seasons preparedness.

Surviving Using Only Ikea Products

 

Inspired by ‘Building a Discount Bushcraft Kit’ (originally by Dave Canterbury), in order to challenge ourselves to think outside the box (and the outdoor stores)  and put our knowledge to the test.

Last couple of years we tested and perfected our kit in multiple and divers camping and bushcraft trips. At the beginning of this year we decided that we were ready to kick it up a notch: To build a camping/survival kit using only Ikea products within a budget of €50,- and putting those products to the test. Yes, this also included some batoning with an Ikea knife!

We will give you a sneak peak in all of our preparations (including the Ikea shopping trip). Show you our Ikea Survival Challenge – with lots of pictures. And in the end we will sum up exactly what we learned on the trip – and tell you if there are any Ikea products that made it into our normal kit!
