I'm going to point out a few flaws in your gear.
First you have a bunch of repetative equipment in your kit. If you have a Leatherman you don't need the switchblade. Also why even consider the switchblade because it can only be an ineffecive weapon against zeds. Personally I wouldn't want to be close enough to stab it with that dinky pigsticker.
Second you mention all the knives from your kitchen and forks from your kitchen. What purpose do they have? If you have the leatherman the kitchen knives and forks are useless. They will waste space and weight.
Third, a 9mm handgun? You don't have one, and you can't count on scaving one. What happens when you find one without ammo or low on ammo what will you do? Again you cannot count on scavenging it.
Fourth, you mention energy bars. Is that all you have for food? You better get more, starvation is a slow painful death.
Fifth, you mention a water purification pump, but nothing to hold the water. It's the same story for the gasoline siphoning pump.
Sixth, you mention rechargable batteries. Eventually the batteries will wear down to a point where they can no longer be charged, and by then where will you find more batteries? You can't count on scavenging them. The solar powered charger can break, or wear down to the point of being useless.
Seventh, what value does the bag of rubber bands have, it won't make good cordage, you can't make much with it.
Eighth, why have post its and a pad of paper?
Ninth, your axe body spray/lighter flamethrower would be a failure. It won't have any effect on a zed, and has the possibility of blowing up in your hand.
Tenth, your cell phone isn't going to be worth jack **** once the cell towers go without repairs.
Eleventh, just buy maps from the USGS. They are more detailed and useful than a google map.
5 out of 6 found this valuable. Do you?
