I need a ranged weapon and something for close quarter fighting, in the confines of the woods Im defencless. I have the chair leg or my hammer but thats less then idea I cant afford to loose my tools and the chair leg isnt heavy enough. Well Theres always the dinner knife...... yeah ifind a small cluster of young ash, good material.. would provide good cover.... i draw my sword and lop off 6 ft pole. i skin and shape the pole into a bow stave using my folding saw and wood plane... and shape the notching with my chisle ... what i wouldnt give for a good knife.... i take some of the twine from my bag and begin to brade it into a bow string .. useing the remaining branches and the table knife i skin myself 7 arrow shafts and set them to dry... i need fletching and heads ......... i glace arround searching for what i need ... find a few discarded feathers after an hours seatch now i need heads.... littered about the forest floor in what used to be a fire pit used by local teens for parties i see discarded glass bottles shattered on the ground flat glass...... picking up carefully bits of glass i shape the shards into useable arrow heads by napping the glass .... pine trees.... pine trees with sap.... a goto the nearest pine tree and use the dinner knife to scrape off bits of sap.... onto schards of birch bark ... this will help i get back to my little tree enclosure .... no sign of zombies ....... thank god the birds are singing ...... the forest isnt still .... and begin to assemble the arrows.... splitting some ofthe remaining twine into thinner strands i secure the arrow heads in the shaft smearing the twine wrapping in the pine sap.... i split and cut the feathers with my teath and fletching the tails using the remainder of my split twine and pine sap to secure the feathers... i leave them in the light to dry ... a temporary answer ... i need something more perminant. i make a quiver for my arrows forming a cone with birchbark and sewing it with twine cord and create a crude strap with a strip of my canvas cloth.... i need something for close combat. i pick u a discarded peice of ash maybe 2 feet long take my sword and split the peice down about 6 inches ..... nearby i see a flat peice of stone roughly oval shaped i pick up the stone and pull some of the salvaged nails from my bag.... carefully driving in one of the nails to stop the spilt and as a connection point i wrap the remainder of my twine arround creating a makeshift mace its better than nothing i tie the twine tightly wrapping it about using a second nail on the base bent into a hook a attach one of the straps to my backpack allowing it to always be in reach..... i scrape my saw across the handle of my mace to roughen it up... a good grip ....my weapons are complete.... i return my tools to the bag .....and leave my small sheltered grove..... heading back to the abandonded fire pit i pick up a few discarded cans.. using a scrap of canvas i create two lids and fill one can with the dead coals of the fire.... the other can i pack with shreds of birchbarck and globs hardend pine resin i cut from the tree and place these items in the bag....... its about noon .... guessing from the sun... i take some water .. no food i can't spare it.... their will be pleanty of water near the river........... i trudge back through the forest i hope to reach the river before sunset.
