I consider this my Z-Day checklist.
>In my BOB (a large, competely waterproof military backpack my uncle gave me), from bottom to top.
2 pairs of socks and 2 pairs of underwear in a large ziplock bag, a slightly smaller ziplock bag inside (for dirty clothes), an extra t-shirt, and an extra pair of jeans, and my phone charger.
In the next "level," there are 2 squashed rolls of ductape, a pair of motocross gloves (unless I'm wearing them), and a small "toolkit" consisting of pliers, wire, a screwdriver with every kind of interchangable basic bit, a can opener, an extra knife, a sharpening stone, 3 bic lighters, 1 full zippo lighter, and 3 nine-hour candles.
Level 3 is extra space for cans and bags of food that will be added later (but they're ready to grab in my cupboard).
There's also a compartment in the front that has my first aid kit inside, and two waterbottle pouches that hold 2 aluminum water bottles.
That's it for the BOB.

>My on-hand checklist
My phone (which will still work for a few weeks or so), a lighter, my wallet with ID and a bit of money just incase, a pocket knife, my bowie knife, my leather jacket and workboots, and a bandanna to be used as a mask when killing the undead.

-4x socks
-4x underwear
-2x outerwear
-the most concentrated skin-safe soap you can find. Hygiene is important, and you can use it to clean your laundry.
-Fixed blade knife
-Swiss Army Knife
-3 Compasses. one in you kit, one around your neck, and a third attached to the knife sheath
-ferro rod(even the tiny Scouts version is good for hundreds of fires)
-small whet stone
-tightly braided twine(shave it for tinder)
-Hammock
-tarp
-foam sleeping mat
-square sleeping bag
-bvvy bag(optional but nice for colder months)
-flashlight
-headlamp
-extra batteries.
-USGI canteen kit(cnteen, steel cup with nesting stove, insulated carry case with pocket for water purificationb tabs and a book of water-resistant matches) Make sure it's genuine surplus; "GI Style" is crap
-3x Bic lighters
-goggles with clear and tinted lenses and/or a good pair of sunglasses
-hat
-Sarong
-Rope
-Rope
-More Rope. several lengths spread out on your person.
-550 cord. Again, make sure it's the real thing and not some cheap knockoff crap from Walmart.
-three paperback novels(the value of morale cannot be overstated) and a copy of the Scout Handbook or something similar(do your homework; all survival manuals are not created equal)
-"Survival Bandanna" it's bright orange with survival tips printed on it.
-food and drink additives of your choice.
-Multivitamins. Your food will go a lot farther if you take a vitamin every day.
-if you plan to hunt, I recommend a bow or crossbow. arrows are a lot easier to make in the field than bullets.

I'd also recommend learning some primitive bushcraft. If all else fails, your brain is your most valuable tool. if you have knowlege, you can survive with little or not kit.

have you considered adding a hammock? Doesn't take up much space; it's a lot cooler in the summer than sleeping on the ground, and more comfortable too.

In a 90l pack, from bottom to top, I have:
Food bag. Since this pack is also my bug out bag, it usually has a 3 pound bag of rice, and another 2-3 pounds of various canned foods.
Pot, lid, and handle, fit inside the pot is an MSR Whisperlite stove.
Clothing bag, 2 pairs wool socks, 2 pairs wicking socks, long underwear shirt and pants, short sleeved wicking shirt, one pair of jeans, one light fleece shirt, one heavy fleece shirt, one pair fleece pants. Wool hat, undergloves, skiing mittens, and a -20F sleeping bag.
Winter around here can kind of be a bitch.
200Y p-cord, hatchet, first aid kit, water purification tablets, some firesteel, a 20X jewelers scope (lights a fire in about 5 seconds on a sunny day), a leatherman, map of the area, compass, poncho, groundpad, tarp, emergency blanket, mirror.
Somehow, all of this together only weighs about 40lbs.
I also have a pair of lightweight machettes, and then of course a walking stick.

add a fire steel and learn how to get sparks to light natural tinder,

also you dont list a water bottle or anything other then a life sraw to filter water.

you should really prep for duration more then anything. 500 rds of hollow point but only a life straw and zippo? you'l run out of either of those long before the ammo goes dry assuming you dont get into a high volume fire fight with other nomads regardless f the spare filter. might as well add a fire steel and a metal container. you'll lose a fire steel long before you wear it out and a tbh, even if you have the life straw a container to boil water in will be nice,


another thing to conisder is "just add water" type foods, many of them store for years.

I have a fire steel actually, forgot to put it down, the zippo is for smoking weed haha. My preferred fire lighting method is to take a battery and 2 wires to a piece of tinder anyway. I can recharge batteries with my portable solar equipment, is more complicated than a firesteel but I honestly hate using them.

Canteen would be good though, a metal one, all I have is plastic bottles.

I think I've seen that guy post about the cayenne pepper powder before, if I recall he keeps it to stave off food boredom/make disgusting scrounged up food more tolerable. Though defense is a cool application of it that I didn't think of.

>first aid kit with antibiotics

Curious as to where you'd pick up OTC anti-biotics. Or do you just save ones left over from what a doctor gave you? They seem like a legit consideration for long-term survival. Any resources on learning about anto-biotics and their applications in general? Seems like something to read up on before trying to treat things with them.

As far as a check list, I just go by the Ten Essentials. Double check that I've got plenty of water and electrolyte replacement, a good knife and multi-tool, and my military poncho and I'm good to go.

Mostly neither, cayenne pepper is excellent herbal medicine, a remedy for all kinds of shitty conditions. I got bit by a brown recluse once and put fresh cayenne on it (this is high quality shit mind you, no shitty supermarket cayenne), dripped on some water so it would stick, wrapped a bandage around it and a little while after, the wound spat out the venom. I saw a doctor later but he was amazed at what the cayenne did, said he'd never seen anything like it and while he was giving me some antivenom just in case, said it's just to make sure and the cayenne probably took care of it.

It's been known to stop heart attacks in progress.

Has a whole shitload of uses, very good herbal medicine.

But yeah i suppose I could use it on food and as a last ditch don't fuck with me effort.

Benny "The Jet" Urquidez used to take cayenne pepper in capsule form before a match, and he was a god damn wrecking machine.

You tried storing cotton in plastic straws for you tinder? A buddy burner made from a used tuna can cardboard and old wax would help. Soda can tabs make good tensioners for your ropes. Using some chocolate on a bottom of a soda can be used to reflect the sun to start a fire. Nothing beats having pure baking soda a must have for any survival kit.

Tampons make the best tinder. Or cotton balls with vaseline.
I've seen the Coke can/chocolate firestarter trick before, you use the wrapper to polish the base until it's like a mirror.
