20 dollars

Ok guys lets see what you suggest. You only have 20 bucks to survive 5 days in a remote area. What do you buy to take with. You have boots and a sleeping bag what else do you buy or bring.

Re: 20 dollars

metal can of beans, 3 pack of bic lighters, roll of 550 cord, fish hooks, and fishing line. I might even have some money left.

I could use the metal can for a water/food pot after I eat the beans inside.

Re: 20 dollars

Assuming we are in a forested area, I can make a water proof shelter, start a fire, cook on a stick, Perhaps some kind of cooking vessel. Assuming water is available to boil,

some sort of cordage or mono to make a snare or net.
