Mostly electronic communications for survivalists and other off-grid/down-grid types. Occasional social commentary, and general self-reliance stuff.

Not a bad list, Mike Bishop - I'd get rid of the Miox for something battery independent, add a lifestraw or chemical water purification, and a couple of space blankets. Also an old pair of running shoes or something, and a knife.
Good point. A Sawyer Mini would suffice, or the Lifestraw. Throw in a Frost Mora, and you'd be in decent shape.
Add in hard candy, a $100 bill, a roll of quarters, salt tablets, and a pack of cigarettes.The hard candy is quick energy and morale, the cigarettes are a stimulant, barter, and tinder. The $100 is somehow more magical than five $20 bills when you are trying to convince someone to help you, and the roll of quarters suffices for small purchases, either in person or at vending machines (and has self defense purposes as well, either alone or combined with the extra socks.) The salt tablets are self explanatory and vital, especially here in Texas in the summer.The siphon needs to be a shaker siphon. A agree on replacing the MIOX with something simpler, as well -- remember, this thing is likely to sit unopened for years in the trunk.
