Recently I made a possibles bag along the lines suggested by Rex Allen Norman.
It is a canvas bag with a piece of rope. The rope can be used to tie three sticks together as a tripod for cooking.
Included in my possibles bag is a sewing kit, a small cooper trade kettle, some tobacco, an awl, a file in a leather pouch, horn spoon, folding knife, coffee, meat hooks with chain, a small tin cup and my fire kit with flint and steel.
