    For days I have been working on barter sets. I have each one labelled as to how much it cost me to make so any of us can do the bartering. I have some that are tube tents, emergency blankets and a sm box of strike anywhere matches. Some have hot coco, instant oatmeal and a fishing line and hook, all in a plastic cup with a lid similar to a travel mug. Some just 40' of fishing line, a weight, a leader and 2 diff sized hooks.... some just have the line and hooks and some are just premade instant oatmeal. Did this my buying inst oatmeal for $1 at the dollar store. Add 1/3 cup of that plus one tsp of sugar and a tsp of coffeemate. Written on the outside is added.. add 1/2 c warm water. Later in the week I'll make some up with beans, salt, pepper and baco's in em. Gees I'm tired:sssh:

    Instant oatmeal and instant barter. Looking at buying some of the $2 sewing kits for barter goods too.

    Add some nice dried apples or peaches or especially bananas to the instant oatmeal packs and a bit of dried milk you got gourmet instant oatmeal and can get more barter for your buck!;):D

    If we're to the point of trading/bartering survival kits I doubt the police are going to be anyone's concern anymore.
