Can we make this the sticky for out?
Its seems like everything one one need for /out/?
Maybe the bow can be replaced by a fishing pole based on your location?
And maybe a book filled with basic knowledge. Any thoughts?

if you read a book you'd know he was a few miles from his house, which was undoubtedly stocked with all the things he actually needed to survive.

honestly if all you're doing is walking a few miles from home you don't need to carry anything.

base speculation.

a decorative copper axe is useless for survival, and that arthritic cripple wasn't running anywhere.

this is fun though.

I think we should start a collection of kits that failed to keep people alive.

like maybe a list of what Chris McCandless had with him when he died outdoors.

or the Donner party. There's a group that knew about survival on a minimum of supplies.

but I'm a scientist, my speculation is just as worthless as theirs.

they also speculated that he was killed in a battle and then buried with his possession from home... or out gathering food when attacked... or taken from his village and ritually sacrificed.

in face every scientist has a different speculation, all of them equally likely.

Nobody going to mention the fact Ötzi was 45 years old and existed 3,300 years before Christ? What do you think the average life expectancy was in those days? This motherfucker had arthritis all over his body and still trekked more than you ever will. He killed bears, chamois, and deer before turning their bodies into his tools and clothing. And yes, he even killed other human beings who are likely to be just as vicious and bent on surviving as he was. Bad. Fucking. Ass. Let's see if people still talk about you anons and study your lives 3,000 years from now.

Farms are the all time perfect habitat for deer and their population exploded with the advent of (intensive European style) farming.
