for the physicality, you'll need

Conditioning (training, fitness)
Calories (food, energy source)
Cleaning (hygiene, infection)
Cardio (endurance, resistance)
Cortisol (stress hormone, use it)

Solving problems you didn't know you had in the most obscure way possible

"And now, it's time to hand this over to our tame race axe driver. Some say, he can live in the forest for six months at a time without food, and he knows of a secret tribe of only women where he is their God. All we know is, he's call the Styx!" - TazzieRob

Planning on making that survival situation as enjoyable (and safe) as possible Nix?  :D

Crisps (pick your fave flave)
CD's  - a bit of your fave music makes a survival situation funky
Cannon - for extra safety
Cyborg Army - for extra extra safety
Coolaid - for if you forgot everything else on the list and can no longer face your reality

Especially if you have the right kind of company. We don't want to return form a survival situation in greater numbers than we started with, do we now?  :D
