I don't have time to go into a full gear list right now, but one point of discussion I think is important is carrying tinder.
Everyone has firestarters but it seems to me that most don't carry adequate (or any) tinder, which could *argueably* be equally important.
Many tinder options are not heavy, nor necessarily bulky; I don't see why it wouldn't make it into a kit.
I like using jute twine dipped in parafin. Let it harden and cut it into 2-3" strips.
Break the wax, fluff up the end, and it lights easily with a spark (even a broken lighter should do it).
With what I make, 2-3" piece burns for about 5-6 minutes.
25 of these sticks in a small 2x3" ziplock weighs only .5 ounces and takes littile space.
In addition to a firesteel, this is with me all the time; I use them for lighting the woodstove, campfires, survival, whatever. I've never been unable to start a fire with this combo...snow, rain, soaked wood, whatever.
How you prepare your wet wood and get suitable kindling is a whole other issue....
I've always thought more attention should be payed to bushcraft on these forums- most people don't even know how to "really" use a knife, etc...
Let's go Ali!! (I know you've got that b a d a s s tracker knife...)
