    Absolutely !! This system without doubt is the most simple yet practicle bit of advice you will ever hear, all bushcraft/survival kits should be built around the 5C's.

    I hope you are taking a first aid kit and a method of contacting/signalling for help..... of course there would be no points deduction for using these
    Absolutely agree, However you can go further, Cutting tool(s) & container. Cordage can be improvised, combustion can be improvised. Depends on the woodland your in. A good mixed woodland and your laughing. To be honest if your in an area with good flint, you might be able to do without a blade as well.

    Working together will also help keep the number of items used down.

    Good luck with it Chaps, look forward to hearing how you get on.

    HInge. I like this challenge. I think I will try something like this in the fall (way too hot here now). I was considering that some of the places I camp, hunting for Squirrels, rabbits, several birds, crow, Turkey etc are legal as are fishing. So I was thinking I could score a point for bringing no food. But then a 22 or a shotgun would be considered kit. Likewise a fishing rig. So this would be a bit tougher.
    If we were not expecting rain then I could do without the tarp and build a shelter. Or if there were going to be snow likewise.
    I will have to think about this.

    Good answer

    hello,
    Old thread revival like it. Aye followed by a good beasting from the Para's (hunter force) followed by 36 hours of sleep deprivation, starvation, humiliation, & goddam sheer brutality. Back to the lines for a sh*t, shave, & a curry
    Regards

    5 items, eh? Let's see here....

    Three season:
    ~ DD 3x3 coyote tarp
    ~ fire kit pouch
    ~ axe or tomahawk
    ~ rations (that don't require cooking in a pot or pan).
    ~ sleeping pad/mat

    I imagine this configuration could also work in the winter by modifying the DD (stove-jack) for a hot tent setup.
