Is not the only country that might Get in some serious pinch you know the sh t if Something hits the fan. Let’s call it bluntly okay, so I live in Europe, you know in a little country called Romania and Here an imminent threat would be a Very big earthquake that could hit at any moment unfortunately because we had the last one about 35 years ago, and we are situated on a tectonic plate that moves a lot every year we get about four or five small earthquakes but Cyclic fashion we get one big one every 10 years or so so we are now overdue for the big one But this means is that at any moment? Unfortunately there could be a big earthquake here in Romania so what that means is a lot of people are going to get stranded and they’ll have to rely on what they have in on their pockets so basically under EDC or everyday carry and What money they’ll have in their pocket to quickly buy some supplies so they can either Leave by for a couple of days before they can get back home or Something like that so this we’re talking about a serious situation something that can actually happen It’s a pretty much immediate threat. We are already here testing our emergency alarms and stuff like that to see how fast we can get the population up to speed with a Potential earthquake, so they can get ready But the best prediction would be something like 20-30 minutes before the actual event happened We have some apps that we can install on our mobile phones also if we have a radio Set to a membrane scale we can actually get a notification from What’s it called national? Emergency something I can’t remember exactly so phones like Distress calls are not on the radio that hey, you know get ready 30 minutes. We’ll have a bigger quicker software so on that note I Put myself. Hey, what would I do if I’ve been catch of cards? with almost no EDC on me and I only have A local store that I can go and buy some supplies so I can actually bug out of there Try to survive the earthquake and then try to get home to my family so In that effect I’ve started to think about to type of survivor mentalities that I know First one is quite old. It’s been used in the Mountain rescue operations and Boy Scouts and mountain Rangers and stuff like that it’s called rural free If you don’t know about that you should check sensible pepper Preppers channel Or switch, he’s actually a very cool guy. He can explain this a lot better than I can But basically the rules of free means that you have Three seconds without hope you do if you don’t have any kids ready to help you free hours Without shelter because that’s how much time you’re gonna get to live without You know if you’re exposed to extreme conditions, and you have you don’t have a shelter Three days without water and three weeks without food so basically. This is the rule of free Now this kind of helps you a little bit, but to go a little bit even further and to actually get some good mentality on you and to get The actual items that you really need you’re wrong in your backpack and stuff like that there’s a different mentality something that has been developed from Historical observations and stuff like that by another great youtuber and someone that has actually been in a lot of survival situation And he actually had a couple of TV shows and that would be Dave cannabis And his shell so if you don’t know about him. Go take a look because he developed a very good mindset for survivability and preparedness Which is called the five Cs of survivability? I think I said right hopefully and that means that at all times To be prepared you should have the five C’s on you five items With backups to those five items so you can actually survive even the worst conditions ever And of course the survival factor refers to 72 hours after that if you Are not rescue and you cannot try you’re probably gonna die anyway, but at least you have three days in which you can actually survive, so the five Cs are basically Cover cordage cutting to combustion device And I think compass. I’m not sure you should check his channel But in these lines. I took a trip today to one of my local stores here. That is pretty much has items that you can find in a dollar store something like that so I picked up some items made a little kit and Stick around I’m going to show you what I actually got Shelter All right guys, thank you for sticking with me, so This is the actual items that I was able to get In this bag here it is large water container here So I’m going through a rebel, what’s in this bag? And talk about each shrink, and why did I picked it up? All right? Don’t forget. I live in a country in Europe under the European Union rules and regulations So this kind of change is a little bit what you can actually buy what you can carry on your person? That’s why even if you get hit by Natural disaster like a big earthquake and stuff like that. You’re still not going to be able to bear arms or even Full-tang knives stuff like that Stupid regulations in some cases in my opinion, but let’s take a look at what we have here all right, so For cordage at this store, I couldn’t find anything else than this Very team duct tape It was actually one euro So euro is the local currency in Europe okay, so one euro it’s one point two dollars or something like So this has some length to it. I don’t know if it says here how much exactly Well it doesn’t but it’s say it is if very similar to Duct tape only it’s a lot more thinner as you can see here But you can do some work with this, and if you roll it up You can actually create cordage with this and you might have some 30 meters plus here So you can do some stuff with this and it was only one Europe now That’s cordage We live the food lasts and Let’s look at the shelter elements that I was able to get So I guess everyone knows what this is right. This is a drum liner the biggest that they had in the store And this is actually the thickest material that I could find there you need something like this If you don’t have any Tablecloths and Shower curtains and stuff like that or other kind of plastic liners Because this because it is very huge is too far 240 liters and you have five of these here in this row so this basically means you kind of get two and a half shower curtains out of this if you know how to cut it and You can actually make a nice cover for yourself, so this would be the first element for my shelter Alongside with the cottage all right way to do this here. Let me rearrange the camera a little bit here And then You’ll also need Something to put beneath you because otherwise if you do not have enough layers of material underneath your body when you’re trying to Sit and you sit down directly on the ground you’re definitely gonna catch a cold and die pretty soon because Sorry the earth will create convection and Heat conduction and that’s gonna kill you in the end so To figure that out, I bought another pair of these These are small size 120 meters But there’s 10 of them, so you can actually are all this get get this this Drama girls as they are and fill them with leaves and place it beneath you and When you lay down to sleep you you lay down to sleep on these Which would have a lot of leaves and a lot of or whatever you can find paper bags and stuff like that And you’re not going to sleep directly on the ground and that’s gonna save your life. Okay. I can guarantee that and Also for this shelter slash container Because you also need a container and everything this is what’s helpful that’s from the five seeds if I remember correctly what I recorded previously This is Armenian foil used for cooking it says is highly durable It’s about Ten meters of it So you can actually make Containers out of this so you can cook something on a fire, but you can also take some Pieces of these some sheets of this and place inside your inside your shelter in order to reflect the Heat that you get from your body, but also from But also from the fire Alright, so this pretty much takes care of our shelter element or cordage element so we have cover cordage and also part of the container stuff all right So now let’s see what else we got here Something very important that shouldn’t you should never forget and you should have her in their dungeon c4 that? is combustion Combustion devices that can insure you or You will get you sure fire Each time surefire means a way to create flame in a second for less than a second, so For that effect these are matches As you can see we have 10 boxes here each box has our own a Lot of matches in it I guess at least 50 matches or something like that So it up a lot of ways to start a fire here and The best part is in my opinion that you can ever hope to have These a camera so I picked up this bag for 20 These little candles That in effect, can you put one of these inside of your shelter we’re going to equal as Moore’s Kohan ski one of these candles lit Means you know in a proper shelter means another person near to you Sharing with you their body heat, so if you could imagine having one two three of these Light up In your shelters somewhere sir safe of course because you don’t wanna burn your shelter down or get burn yourself but if you fire three of these and during the night you have this free lead next to you you’ll have the Body heat of four persons in your shelter because you represent and then you have free camping. I think this is the best Fire starter firing later fire keeper whatever you want to call it all right, and it’s really really cheap I mean I paid for all of this Maybe two bucks so one one euro 50 or something like that, okay, so these two here take care of the combustion element okay one of the most important C’s combustion take care and remember that then you have to Take care of yourself of your body you’ve been working a lot. You’ve created your shelter your started your fire by now So you need to clean up a little bit before you start eating or drinking anything? so something like this that has Five pieces, but you can find Some wit 15 pieces, so these are wet wet wipes that are also antibacterial In case you cut cut is not recommended, but you can most certainly use this to clean your wound and then Seal up with something like this All right, if you don’t have anything else on you. This is better than living that open and you know exposed so This is very important. It’s very cheap first of all you can get One of these for less than 50 cents alright You can probably get three of these for one dollar only part one it has 15 actual this one has 15 pieces in it so 50 15 wet wipes 15 should be more than enough for you to take care of business for few days Alright, so no way I was wasting more money on this, but it is important to have something like this Which you at all time right so this is? You can consider it a comfort. Item you can consider the medical item in any case I thought you you should really have something like this All right, so let’s put this one here Let’s see what else we have here and now Before we get to the food of course. This is the biggest container that I could find It has 5 liters of water in it so basically Is it a gallon or not? I don’t know you can figure it out for yourselves, but this is a 5 liter containers filled of natural spring water It’s clean its durable. You don’t have to clean it you have 5 liters with you for 3 days. I think that’s more than enough But in case you need more well that’s life, because I wasn’t able to find any type of Steel or armenian containers in this store, so you good try and manufacture a container out of this as I said earlier I Don’t know if it’s going to work for water boiling It’s certainly you can do something like a Minion bag in which you can actually put some food in and warm it up over the fire But I don’t know if it’s going to Actually keep water in it because I don’t think it’s that thick as you can see here, but you can try that In any case is this sore this particular start even had any kind of a veneer or steel container so no metal containers found there So this is the water element all right this big thing here this big jug it’s going to Ensure that you have water for the 72 hours that you’re supposed to be out there in the elements Before you get to your family or to get home or wherever you want to go So it should be more than enough to sustain you for those three days Now we are talking about food because even though the rule of three says that you can go three weeks without food That’s true. You can survive body can survive for three weeks without ingesting a new food, but after Two or three days you’ll be so weakened you’ll not be able to do anything And if you have to build a shelter maintain a fire Even carrying your stuff around and enduring the cold weather All of that things will burn calories out of your body When your body will start losing fat, and no fat is going to be there to sustain those calorie loss then You’re going to start to lose protein out of your muscles, and that’s you don’t want to go there trust me That’s one step before you’re actually dying you’re starting to die your body starts to die so for food stuff and Here comes the aluminium stuff that you can make out of this This is Sawyer slices This has no expiration date all right I Can promise you that you can maintain this in this plastic bag you can keep it Free for five years maybe on the shelf and this is not going to go back all right You just have to keep it out of Moose Chur and out of extreme heat if you can do that you can keep it somewhere in Ten to fifteen Celsius Degrees then your final shipping is for several years all right, so I took these for a buck You have two meals here that is going to give you a lot of proteins So this is the first element of our food? Then we have this Fish Canned fish that has a life shelf of two years Okay this will give you all the natural oils and I guess vitamins that you’re going to need to sustain yourself in the wilderness scenario or cold weather scenario all right So this is the second food item that I And then the last but not least This is peanut butter all right and another container this is glass and If you’re careful, I think you can put this on a fire To boil something I’m not sure and never try this but in a pinch. I probably would try to Do that all right? so Basically everything that you see here cost me around 15 years oh, I should forget about the back both of these bags all right Then you can actually cut these two strips and Use it as cordage all right Now as I was saying so let’s put this has an item here as well because this is very important actually All right, so everything that you see here on this table On this display all right everything that is in here cause some are Below 15 years, I think it was like 12 years or something, so let’s say $15 all altogether This store didn’t have anything that I could use as a cutting tool, so I have No way to cover one of the five Cs right the cutting tool However let’s think about this a little bit Every time I walk down the street and I look down. I can see a nail I can see a piece of metal can I even have This can here with which the top comes off and this top even though is quite teen It’s still metal and it’s still quite They have a pretty darn edge on it How many times didn’t you cut yourself opening one of these got ten cans? When you were a kid or something odd, so it does have an edge on it You can fold this and use as a cutting tool You can find something while you’re working like a piece of metal like a piece of wire like a piece like like a nail Something that you can take sharpen on a stone and use as a cutting tool, so I’m not worried about that. I’m I’m thinking Although in Dave Canterbury mentality cutting tool comes on the first place I think for me that is maybe the last The last of the C’s everything else that you see here It’s important for you because you may not be skilled to use a cutting tool Or you may not be strong enough to use a cutting tool in different scenarios that you may be Supposed to do if let’s say you would have a cutting tool with you but you have a containment then you’ll have to use that cutting tool to create a container right out of a Tree stamp or something or something like that So that being said well the store didn’t have it But I’m not too sad about it because I was able to cover pretty much everything else So this is kind of did about the So-called ten dollar challenge here in Europe at a local store something similar to a dollar tree or something either that you can find in the US now if My time will permit it I will try to go outside and use all of these to create the shelter for myself, and show you how to do it No no if I can do that, but we’ll try So that being said guys, thank you for watching always subscribe to the channel if you wanna see more and Thanks a lot for all the support you give me
