    What are the top 10 items you would need to survive in the wild for a week?

    If you were lost in the woods and only had 10 items (apart from the clothes you were wearing) which 10 items would be the most important to have in order to survive for a week?

    Depends on your experience. Lets say the person had no idea what they were doing, then my list would be:

    Something to hold water
    Small Pan
    Sleeping Bag
    Fishing Line
    Hand-held Mirror
    Some kind of cordage
    A will to survive

    However, for those who know what hey are doing, most anything could be made and/or constructed.
