    Sometimes, survival comes down to the psychological edge a comfort item, like a family photo, can give you. Or this family of elves, Mrs. Hanzo made.

    My comfort items would be a machete or knife and a big blanket.

    A good battle ax and a pot of Oolong Tea would suit me pretty well.

    For those of us with an unfortunate addiction to tobacco: keeping a good stock of your tobacco product of choice is a good idea as a possible "comfort" item. I personally have a stock to last me about a month that I constantly rotate to keep from going bad.

    I keep mine in the freezer. One can every 5-7 days and I keep between 3-5 rolls @ 5 cans per roll. One of the few things my wife does nag me about.

    Any of you smokers grow tobacco?

    No, but I'm giving it some serious thought.

    I don't have any experience with it, but I am aware of the process. Seems to be pretty cheap to get started on, from what I can tell.

    A couple tins of good tobacco for my pipe and a bottle of really good bourbon.

    Way too cold to grow tobacco here but If I move south I'll hafta try it.

    I've got the Apple Pie and straight whiskey down pretty well-IMHO especially after spending a few years in an oak barrel.What I'd like to perfect is spiced rum. I shamelessly enjoy a bottle of Capt. Morgan or Sailor Jerry and would love to be able to replicate either or something close.
