Gonna do I’m gonna do a random thing Here and it’s gonna pick between me and Cam and we’re gonna see who gets the First pick I’m gonna get it on my phone Here so I can actually put it on the uh Um the thing on uh YouTube okay are you Ready cam I’m ready you ready for it We’re gonna hit it here it goes I didn’t no Um there is an option oh yes yes we did Mention the option so there is a little A little spin on this we could the Person that go that has the second pick Can trade up to the number one pick if Both parties agree and then that person That that gives up their number one can Have a third pick yeah so essentially They get 11 items so they get this but They get the second pick they get the Second pick but they also get the both Third picks yeah That’s up to one of us all right you Ready to pull in now here it goes you Ready yep I’m excited this is the moment Of truth it’s spinning oh my gosh it’s Me uh Oh Okay now I’m doing it with my phone Uh okay you’re number one yeah I’m Number one Um okay here it is number one pick this Is I’m not gonna trade up you’re not you Don’t want to I don’t want to do it I’ll Just stick with our regular dress stick

With the regular draft holy crap I did Not I I thought for sure I wasn’t gonna Get the first pick Um and I have like I have like I did two I thought I was getting it did you and We both optimistic and it blew it okay So I’ve got a lot of different ways I Can go on this but here’s this is gonna Jack my list here’s how I’m thinking About it what is the most important Thing when it comes to survival I mean in your mind Cameron what’s the Most important thing water water right And so it is definitely not the most Expensive item but I feel like it’s the Thing that’s really going to keep me Survived the longest so I’m going with a Sawyer mini oh you’re going with the Mini I’m going with the Sawyer mini yeah It’s a lot of gallons it’s a hundred Thousand gallons yeah so you were you Were thinking I was gonna go with the One month supply yeah it’s already ready It’s ready to go I’m going sorry I’m Stacked up clean it’s sterilized yeah so Here is the reason why I feel like if This becomes a three month to a Three-year issue that one month supply Is only it’s only one month true right Now I’m gonna have a really hard thought About that too so that’s why I but what If yeah I know I mean we’re talking About the area we’re in yeah well so the Scenario would start possibly in our

Area yeah it was here but we’ll talk About that later with the survival Scenarios if it’s a nuclear blast maybe You got some radiated water you don’t Want that filter bro it’s true it’s 100 True but I just feel like my safest pick Right that was a tough one because I saw Your man went back and forth on that Yeah so Sawyer mini is now gone it’s Gone from should I just like delete it Or should I just put something next to It um let me just make it blue can you Can strike it out I’m gonna make it blue All right that sounds good how does that Work now you know that I like that I Like that not you can’t use it okay okay All right so that’s my normal pick is The Sawyer mini holy crap nice bro and There’s gonna be people that are gonna Be very upset for me at me probably for That pick but why screw him nine to Screw it’s my it might stuck on the Filter through the whatever event you’re Going through exactly right yeah all Right oh man my number one you’re right Water is the number one thing yeah but Bro I gotta carry my gear oh yeah I’m Going with the backpack oh no I didn’t Think it would go that early I know crap I wanted it early because I was like I Got like I needed to all go with me I Get you I get you like That’s why I Considered doing two you just get a

Backpack yeah but uh this makes it tough It does make it oh my gosh so the Backpack is now gone uh Carry my gear so I’m looking right now I feel like you don’t know maybe you’re Gonna stay in place I know you might so That was my risk I was like I gotta take That backpack but I might not have to Use it but if I do you’re much I’m not Carrying any garbage bags well I may Have to yeah you might I’m gonna have to See but here’s the thing if I have to I Can take that pick probably much later Now it’s true with one of those things I Would think unless you get nuts and like I won’t back but I want garbage bags too Right okay so just take all of them I Just want a bunch of Packers I just want Carry stuff that’s all I care about Um okay wow so that’s gone so I gotta go With my number two pick so Um Oh man okay so number two pick Um there’s a couple of different ways I Can go with this but I feel like Um one item that I have on my list can Be used for a lot of different things And that item is The Bic lighter ah dang it okay I I went Back and forth for on a few things with This there’s so many uses for that thing Though yeah so I can keep myself warm I Can cook Um torture people I can just burn a damn

Town down if I have to okay right so Um oh man lighting I mean you can yeah If you have to yeah I could light a Candle yes right I mean there’s a lot of Different things I can do with this big Lighter so I’ve got the Sawyer mini and Now I’ve got the big lighter I feel like I’m doing pretty well to be honest those Were my first two nice little candlelit Room drinking some water out of it out Of the toilet you need a barrel yeah out Of the toilet I can take it right out of The toilet if I need to right I just Drink that straight up yeah you do I Wouldn’t even waste your raw dog that Toilet water bro right Okay so Sawyer Mini’s gone oh we got it Dude did you what was the thing that you Said was gone next uh so sorry mini in The uh big lighter it’s gone I got the Sawyer or the okay Bic lighter is now All right so my number two Is um I mean I I can’t pass up nice Clean ready to go water yeah so I’m Doing that one month water okay one Month water supply okay I just make that Takes a lot of stress off I’ve got one Month ready to go which most scenarios Are gonna fall under but long term yeah It’s not gonna go very far no it Definitely won’t go very far but again You have a whole month and we’re just Talking about it but I’m like unreal Like reality most scenarios are probably

Not gonna go a month You’re 100 right Um One month water supply okay so you got a Backpack you got a [ __ ] ton of water Yeah okay you’re doing pretty good right Yep but here’s the thing with this don’t Take it no I’m just saying I’m just Saying with your backpack and your one Month supply so you’re you’re basically You’re staying put kinda well you could Like you’re gonna have to stay put with That water supply yeah to use I am if You have to do that I was like it’s a Little goofy yeah but at the same time I Don’t really want to go anywhere but if I have to I’m gonna be ready to go you Are but you won’t have water yeah so Yeah that’s a Boy okay there’s no other option there’s There’s a lot of other options but That’s the whole filter and water in the Same didn’t I was like considering the Filter which one I knew it was probably Gonna go yeah I need to consult my list Here so we’re only in number two and I Feel like the list is already hurting oh My gosh I know this it’s so difficult to Do because you just don’t know which Situation it comes back to buying stuff For prepping anyways you don’t know Which situation you’re going into right That’s why this is very very hard okay So I’ve got I’ve got water

Probably right I’ve got a filter anyways I can I have a way to make fire Um I man this is really hard but I think Dude there’s there’s like three Different ways I don’t want to go here But I think I need to take The one month supply of nutrient Survival food okay Um yeah boy that that gets me Um that gives me water food and fire Right off the bat right Um so that’s what I’m gonna do Oh man I I might have just made a Mistake but I I keep going back and forth right now Man it’s so hard big time so yeah I’m Going I’m going with the the food one Month nutrient survival food okay okay You’re not planning on packing out too Much well no I could only when you get Ready to drink some water it works Somewhere we’re both in the same Situation we’ve got like a a stay but Not stay yeah type of but but again That’s but you have to do that you have To you have to have two different you do Plan A and B here that stuff Um So that was your number three that was My number three now it’s your turn for Three I’m going back and forth on this Okay and like looking at maybe switching It up like oh dang it man Um

Yeah I mean in reality almost every You you you’re gonna need a fire so I’ve Gotta pick a feral Rod okay It was it was gonna be a bit quieter but Okay that’s the only other way to really Start like I’ve got to have something to Prepare food yeah to boil water okay to Start down to start a fire in town so You’re going with feral Rod I’m gonna go With Pharaoh rush because I’ve got to Have something just buy things going I Honestly I feel like you could have got That a lot later I I probably you could But well I could have done that I Already have my list you’re right I Should have moved it down it’s done now Yeah it’s okay see that’s where it gets Hard because you uh I I picked it early Because I know I was like I didn’t need To there’s not another person that’s the Hard part about this list but I’m going Off my list of what’s most important you Have to adjust as you go because Of the way things get picked right so You have to pull stuff that’s why I’m Like the backpack is gone I think I Still don’t I still think I’m safe on my Other one though You’re probably okay you know what That’s a change okay so you’ve got the Backpack you’ve got the one month water Supply and you’ve got a feral Rod okay I’ve got the Sawyer mini I’ve got a big

Lighter and I’ve got the one month Nutrient survival oh man okay Um So I feel like Dude this is so hard Um I don’t bro I don’t yet Man because I could do that If I have to bug out I’m going to be in Trouble if I don’t have a shelter Right but Um gosh I gotta have a couple of things Fall into line to make this work Um Maybe I should just go with that because It would get me through okay Um I feel like I want to just do a tarp but I feel like The sheltery stuff was tough I know but If I do there’s a lot of uses but if I Do the tarp I also have to have the Paracord to make it work Right I mean or duct tape I guess you Could duct tape that’s true so because Of that I think I’m gonna do the Backpacking tent oh okay okay okay yeah Um oh Man this is I probably could have got that later on But he could have but probably could Have but you’re gonna be comfortable Yeah I’m gonna become way easier to set Up yeah any other portable it is like

Shelter like but if I obviously if I was Going to do this another way and I had More than 10 picks yeah I would probably Buy it on with the tarps that’s yeah but We only have 10 picks so you have to Think about that as you’re making these Picks okay so now I have the Sawyer mini I have the Bic lighter I have one month Nutrient survival food and then I have a Backpacking tent right So I’m I’m half and half here as well Like I’m either staying at home or I’m Going with yeah so what number are we on We’re on number four this is pick four Okay My number three was the uh the fair run [Music] Okay I’ve got it written down below if You want to look at it so no I’m just Changing it up because I had to move Some stuff up So we’re on number four yeah we’re on Number four and you just took the ten I Just took the tent so I’m gonna go with I’ve got it this is not exciting and It’s like it’s overlooking a ton of Really good gear okay Um oh man there’s two though I know dude So number four okay This isn’t exciting it’s probably gonna Cost me but yeah I’m gonna go with Survival seeds okay wow because you’ve Got a left field because she got like I Don’t have any other food source yeah

You’re right I’ve got water okay so I Can plant indoor yeah and um oh man Hunting and all that scares me man like It’s gonna be so hard I get that in real Life so I’m just gonna go with seeds I Can just in their Heirloom Seeds right Yeah for sure so I can just um I’m gonna go with the seeds I’m gonna go With the seeds because I need food and That that’s and essentially depending on The scenario right most scenarios They’ll be replaceable like I was just Right they’ll just feed me forever and If I do it right Change it up okay so my list is not Following whatever it’s mine is not Having three different lists mine isn’t Even close to anything Um okay you took survival seats okay so I’m gonna take The thing that I feel like is a staple With every bug out bag but also with Every home kit and that is a fixed blade Knife yeah number five Um I just feel like there’s so many Different things that can be done with That um survival wise I agree that uh I I have to I can’t just go past it at Number five I didn’t think there’s any Way in God’s green earth it would be There at five yeah I didn’t think there Was any way so I didn’t either I feel Like that’s a great I honestly didn’t Either

Um so okay fixed blade knife is gone my Number five bro that was Fixed blade slash Multi-tool multi-tool you’re gonna go With the multi-tool I’m taking the Multi-tool okay yeah that was that was My also because there’s so many like the Pliers could be used as like medical Instruments they can help with fishing They can help with building shelters Like I’m going with it oh gotta have it I like it that’s a great pick I think Um so let’s see I’ve got food I’ve got Shelter-ish stuff I’ve got a fixed blade Um okay well since Oh my God this is jacking my list I’m so Jacked up too dude it um I’m way out of My uh Plan whatever my plan was supposed to be Um but I think that’s kind of the fun of This is that uh okay I’m on six so I’ve Got five more picks to go Because of that and because of the Importance of this in again all survival Scenarios I’m gonna take the hygiene kit Oh okay wow well yeah I had a feeling You would throw that in your list Somewhere yeah just because stinky Freaking disease ridden yeah I feel like Um it’s again it’s not sexy it’s not Even close to sexy but if I’m looking at It pure survival scenario Um and I’m bugging out or bugging in for That matter yeah I want that’s the hard

Thing is like so are we considering you Already have like your home and stuff Not necessarily not necessarily okay not Necessarily basically the only thing we Can guarantee we have is this gear is Our EDC gear oh okay that’s on us yeah You might be in three different Environment yes so that’s the only Reason I say yeah because you can’t Assume you have all of your home stuff You can’t that’s what I did too you Cannot assume it you could be yeah we Don’t know what the situation is so Hygiene kit for my number six pick okay Oh I probably could have got that a lot Lower too right that’s an important one Though disease prevention yeah oh man Um It’s over on number six we’re on number Six tearing through this list you got Five more to go man okay Okay so I mean You see you have a multi-tool that’s Great You’ve got I got seeds you’ve got yep It’s gonna be a rod but it’s only Long-term food So you have to look at it that way you I Mean I guess you could eat the seeds It’s not good it’s not going to sustain You for very long that way yeah so You’re looking at long-term food right Right Um

My second my sixth my sixth pick This one this one again is it’s man it’s So stupid and not exciting okay looking At all the other stuff I could have Picked I’ve got to go with this though because Um Man I mean Yeah I’m gonna go with it I’m gonna do It I’m gonna stick with what I what I Had okay I’m gonna go with a cooking pot Cooking pot okay because it can carry Water okay you can cook in it obviously I think it’s great you can put more gear In it yeah and just trap you know you Could stick it in something or you can Bury it as a cash there’s a lot of uses For a cooking pot just capturing water Did you already say that yeah yeah like It’s like oh yeah and ring catchers but I mean like is it transporting water or Getting it out of the river Trying and boiling it that’s a really Good idea like that cooking pot it Sounds so like there’s a lot of Different things you can do with it Valuable but man there’s so many things You can Okay Um kid gracious this is so hard because That was my alternative to water prep I Need something to boil it in yeah it Totally makes sense you got it you gotta Have something like that um gosh there’s

Three different things I want to get at This pick and so Finding the right one Um Okay Um Fudge this one I don’t know if I’m Thinking about it in like normal Prepping terms and I don’t have one of These I feel like I’d be horrible Prepper and so I feel like I need to Take oh but I could take the other one Too Um Okay Um Oh crap okay I’m gonna take it because I Don’t think you’re gonna take this other One I’m gonna take 250 in cash oh wow Yeah okay okay Um in most world yeah If I look at bile this year both of the Short-term scenarios which would be Three days or three weeks That 250 in cash is going to be a Gigantic it really is help in those Scenarios So that’s why I think that’s kind of Like covering my short-term bases really Like anything I have 250 bucks you can Get a lot of stuff yeah if the stores Are open or I can go buy fuel or Whatever it might be 250 in cash feels Like it’s a great pick for short term so

That’s what I’m taking 250 in cash is Mine bruh okay okay that’s pretty good Okay oh man it’s getting dirty what if You only have four more picks yeah yes Well I only have three more picks oh What a joke yeah oh okay Um Man so yeah If it’s so hard man yeah I don’t like This is like way harder than actually Thought it was going to be I thought it Was actually I thought we would blow Through these lists yeah I’m I’m chain I’m like kind of changing as I go yeah Thinking about the scenario I’m in Um I probably could push that down Um I’m gonna so there’s a reason I’m Gonna go with this one okay this is Number seven right this is your seventh Pick I’m going I’m going with that 100 Foot paracord oh wow okay because like Paracord has you know you can break it Down you could essentially use it as Fishing line yeah you could it’s not the Greatest and it probably wouldn’t I mean It’d be hard to use but you could but You can you can build with it you can There’s just so many different things With paracord yeah dry your gear out you Can Um use it as a security perimeter Um there’s just a lot of uses that I Think

Um it’s not something I ever use in day To day so it’s like why would I throw it In there but if I had nothing else you Know just the stuff that I have now gear Cooking pot like I need that cord for a Lot of other reasons sure I like it Breaks down into longer small strands Repair Gear Repair your pants you can Use this fish or you use uses shoelaces Um you never know you just don’t not I Think it’s a good pick I mean how do you Say 100 feet of paragord is a bad pick Especially it’s so many uses it’s at Seven yeah you’re down there right like That’s that’s a value pick really at Seven so but it’s so hard because you’re Just like man there’s other stuff yeah It could be better there it really is Okay so I’m on my eighth pick Um I’m gonna take this pick and a lot of People aren’t gonna like it and you’re Probably gonna think it’s a dumb pick But I’m gonna pick it because I feel Like again it’s a super important pick In all of these scenarios because to me Communications are gigantic so I’m going With the emergency radio that’s good Okay because I feel like if I’ve got Information on what’s going on on any of These I’m gonna be better off yeah right I’m gonna be I’m gonna be ahead of the Game even if my gear isn’t on point I Know what’s happening I feel like Um I’m gonna have a leg up and at number

Eight I’m taking the emergency radio Yeah the emergency radio is huge so we Probably should have specified this Because a lot of emergency radios can Actually charge phones and they’re solar That’s true I never did think about that One with that one but we didn’t so I’m Gonna say that does that one because we Didn’t talk about it it’s just a you can Just charge itself it can charge itself Yeah yeah I like that okay like a crank Or like or both but it’s not going to Charge anything it’s not gonna charge Anything else yeah okay I’d still that’s Still a valuable pick like I still good Right like I wouldn’t care Um Now we’re getting really tough yeah now We’ve got you’ve got three picks my gosh I’ve only got two what the hell am I Gonna I was thinking that it was the Other way around I was thinking like the First like three to four picks were Gonna be the hardest I think oh it’s Worse now it it actually is because Um because you’re getting down to your Last few picks and you have to think About all the different types of Scenarios like the length of time Um bugging out bugging in type things So it’s very tough very very tough Yeah Oh man so thinking very much on on the Food aspect of things yeah I

Um I’m going like in this one man this is Against my religion here this is against Everything that we preach okay I’m going With that pistol I’m taking that nine Millimeters 50 50 rounds yeah and if you’re very Careful small game maybe even large Right fish you could shoot at fish yeah That’s not the greatest thing in the World but I’m just saying and Self-defense yeah oh man it was hard to You can’t turn down a gun I honestly That was probably going to be my next Pick was it Um just because of this well I loved the Crossbow but I’m like the arrows I just Worry There’s not very many arrows yeah um and They break or they or you lose them but You’re stealthy oh man it was tough but I’m going with that nine millimeter Nah I’m just dang man Um Oh my gosh how am I gonna do this Um but that another thing is I had to Think of food procurement if I didn’t Get like yeah so I got seeds and I can Hunt yeah So obviously I’m see I have to look at Mine too I have a self-defense weapon in My the fixed blade the fixed blade knife I didn’t have anything But I don’t really have a radar hunt

Feral Rod just throw people off um I Don’t think I don’t really have any way To hunt I do have the 250 in cash which To be honest I have to look at that Saying I can buy some sort of a bag Maybe to carry my stuff yeah a lot right Buy some food off man you don’t need it But I don’t know though so me looking at Probably by Cheap gun maybe right But you don’t know I don’t know Um oh my gosh this is so hard okay Um this is Again going back to the basics of what Is needed for preparedness and my ninth Pick is going to be a first aid kit yeah Okay yeah I think I have it so the one Thing about that first aid kit is it Does have some basic medicines ibuprofen Sure diet anti-diarrheal yeah like yes It’s got to right that’s that’s that’s Whatever kit should have a few of those For kids for you it’s huge yeah that was On my it was on my Knicks oh so hard Yeah you got the damn handgun gosh dang You Uh I had to sacrifice some stuff though You did but ah man there’s a lot of Things in here too that are like Comforts they are it’s so nice so much Better yeah Uh what did I just pick I picked oh the First aid kit okay

I know this this last so you have two Picks I have one pick What you do yes we should have made it Like 12. no I think I this makes it Better honestly that you have to really You have super limited super limited all Right so is it my pick it is your pick It’s your ninth pick you’ve got a Backpack I can put my seeds my Multi-tool my cooking pot my paracord Yeah Um my Ferro Rod like I’m I’m pretty I’m In pretty good but yeah I need I need to Have some sort of shelter if I’m bugging Out so I’m taking the tarp no with the Tower that’s good that’s good pick Because like yeah I mean I can wrap Stuff in it I can I can carry more in it I can collect water yeah rain catchment Um there’s a lot of uses for that right And I and you need shelter like you Gotta have yeah you have to have shelter There’s like no building like you can Build you know branches and stuff it’s Never gonna work like a tarp to keep you Dry and keep you warm so I it was that Or the the backpacking tin yeah and I Couldn’t decide I was gonna take Whichever you didn’t well that’s what I’m looking at like that backpacking Tent probably has a bag that I could Stuff some stuff in yeah I’m sure yeah That’s true that’s true like it’s got a Stuff you can just squeeze stuff in

There like a lot of my stuff I could Squeeze I have all kinds of crap stuffed In my tent bag yeah man it’s like Um there’s way too much in it to be Honest Oh my gosh so that’s true you got your Bag there that would kind of work kind Of or you would you could abandon the Tent yeah it’s not great so now I’m Looking at what my last pick needs to be Um which this one might be the hardest Of them all to be honest with you it Kind of is so there’s you took you took Several of the ones I needed there are a Couple that I’m looking at that Um I think would be good picks here one Of those is probably the top of my list Right now as I look at it is a headlamp Um I feel like that’s a you gotta have Do you gotta be able to see it at night And especially if there’s no electricity Um things like that it’s it’s a huge Deal the other thing I think would be Great is a solar battery bank I could Keep my phone charged Um the communications again are a Gigantic thing Um And then the last one a couple I’m Looking at is either the fishing gear For some long-term food or a survival Guide because I’m an idiot and another Member here in the gun were the two Things I couldn’t yeah settle on

Because I mean the fishing gear is more Long term because it just can be used Over and over and over again but I can You can also do something like the Crossbow or the takedown bow with three Arrows Um Oh my gosh Jimmy rig up some yeah Fishing line from paracord that was the Only thing I could think of maybe using It that way yeah that’s true huh you’re Going with the spork it’s all right Um and cold weather clothing if this Happens to be oh my God the winner issue We’re both gonna be interesting it’s Gonna be really hard other than the fact That I have 250 in cash that’s true That’s the only flexible it’s super Flexible Um and so that’s why I’m like maybe That’s the way to go Um Okay I’m I gotta go with the headlamp with Rejectionable batteries okay ah man that Was my number gosh that one and another One I had slash Um okay so that’s so you guys have the Last pick man gosh yeah see headlamp Number ten guys for me but yeah I need lighting too yeah and having used The solar home yeah and it recharges oh That’s a good idea I’ll strap that into My chest and walk through the forest

Because you could put that solar panel Up on top yeah because like if it’s Charged you get you get a few hours out Of it and so I’m like I wanted the Headlamp or that Um but the bar light solar home like has A lot of good things like it does if You’re if you’re holed up somewhere it’s Super convenient it’s a beautiful stream Of lights and it keeps recharging yeah So you have some power yeah Um so yeah that’s my number ten is the BioLite solar that’s a great value pick Right there too man at number 10 you get A lot out of that one pick so that’s it Guys that’s our picks so let me go Through what mine were number one I got The Sawyer mini I got the good one I got The big lighter I got a one month Nutrient survival food cash I got a Backpacking tent a fixed blade knife a Hygiene kit 250 dollars in cash an Emergency radio a first aid kit and then The headlamp with rechargeable batteries Cameron yep so my number one was the Backpack yeah in a way I kind of wish Like I I thought for a long time about Going with the sleeping bag just because You could pack stuff in it you could Yeah it wouldn’t be very easy but then You have a nice warm sleeping bag Especially if you don’t have to but I Want the backpack you can’t go wrong no It’s a great it’s a great pick number
