The HYDRO Box

In extreme conditions, humans can only survive about 3 days without water.  Finding, filtering, purifying and transporting water are all incredibly important tasks and priorities in ANY survival scenario.  This box is designed to provide subscribers with an assortment of very unique water-related survival tools and skills.

June 2017 List of Contents

APOCA-DRY  GEAR  Bags:  3-PACK

This trio of dry bags will come in handy in big ways, whether you’re on a hike in the pouring rain or headed down class 4 rapids. The velcro strip secures a watertight seal that will keep your necessities safe and dry. With varying sizes of small (9×5), medium (12×7), and large (15×10), you’ll be able to accommodate a wide range of items. The fact that these bags are clear makes them ideal for keeping maps safe and readable when it’s pouring, too!

LIFE  RAFT   SURVIVAL   Knife

I love all different styles of knives and have a rather large collection.  However, one knife I have never owned is a Life Raft Survival Knife – UNTIL NOW – and I decided this was the perfect box to include one in an APOCABOX.  With the rounded tip and floating handle, you can quickly see why it’s packed in inflatable Life Raft Survival Kits.  Where will you pack yours?

FISH / FROG   SURVIVAL  GIG

A fish and frog gig is an essential piece of kit to any aquatic forager kit.  The one I chose for you is one of the nicest I’ve ever seen.  It’s shaped from really heavy gauge steel, yet is still lightweight.  Be sure to add a wood screw to your kit so that you can secure it to a pole through the hole in the side.  This way you won’t lose it on the one that got away!

POCKET  FIELD  GUIDE:  WILDERNESS   SURVIVAL   DRINKS,   TEAS,  COFFEES,  NECTARS  &  SAPS

Congratulations on owning one of the 1st Editions of my 1st FULL COLOR Pocket Field Guides!  Black and white just didn’t do this guide justice.

This full color guide details 21 wild edible drinks, divided into three categories: Wild Coffee-Like Brews, Cold Wild Drinks, and Hot Wilderness Teas.  Never has drinking in the wilderness been so much fun – and interesting!

From Tulip Poplar Nectar Shots and Black Locust Blossom Tea to Roasted Chicory Root Coffee and Mesquite Pod Smoothies, many people have no idea how many delicious drinks can be harvested from the wild places.  I compile 20 years of taste-testing into one easy to use and understand pocket guide.

FOLDING  FILET  /  FOOD  PREP  KNIFE

Whether you’re a fisherman/woman or not, every survival minded individual can use a good filet knife in their kit of tools.  This one is not only razor sharp for fileting all varieties of fish and aquatic meals, but also folds (which is a very unique feature) for easy storage.  The rubber grip makes hanging onto it a breeze, even with wet and slippery hands.

COLLAPSIBLE  MINNOW  TRAP

All of the minnow traps for this shipment were made by HAND to fit into our custom sized APOCABOX.  This style trap is designed to catch live bait for fishing.  The coolest part is that it’s collapsible and takes up little room in a BUG OUT BAG or NONCON Pack.  It includes a small zipper bait to load insects or other food.  It functions by luring minnows and crayfish in through the funnel shaped openings.  Once inside, they can’t figure out how to get out and there they will remain until you come back to recover them.

GRANGER’S  G-WAX  GEAR   GUARD

This amazing natural beeswax treatment is the perfect balance between a water repellent and a leather conditioner for your full-grain leather, especially for your footwear. The concoction within this tin has everything you need to keep oil, stains, and water at bay. G-Wax is the ideal way to restore the waterproof finish on your boots and shoes.

TARP   DRAIN   RAINWATER   HARVESTER

Turn any tarp or piece of plastic into a life-saving rain harvester. With this kit, you’ll be able to funnel rainwater from your tarp into a collection container. Keep this item in your pack when you hit the wilderness because when it rains, this kit pours!  Rain is 100% safe to drink without further processing and the ability to collect it is invaluable in a survival scenario.  This simple kit allows you to take advantage of SURFACE AREA and harvest rainwater quickly and efficiently.

 

HYDRO SKILLS  CHALLENGE

Coal Burning a Wooden Container

Primitive cultures used the power of coal burning to make a huge variety of wooden tools – from huge canoes to cooking containers.  Regardless of the end result, the process of coal burning is pretty much the same.  Your challenge this month is to use red hot coals from a fire to burn the cavity in your own wooden container using the pine block provided in this box.
