In this post I wanted to put forth a critical thinking exercise.
Which items of value would you implement into your carry for the purpose of trading to get yourself out of a life threatening situation?
There are no wrong answers in this one but there is reasoning behind certain choices.
Remember, this exercise is not about bargaining or getting a deal. The purpose of carrying the items is to have something of high value to offer for trade in an extreme situation where time is of the essence. Maybe a ride to the airport in an unmarked car or safe passage would be worth the value of the item to you in that specific place and time.
Let me know what you think in the comments below.
