Might want to look into AntiX live-usb as it has custom tools in the
original image for dealing with persistence.
From here:


Instead of packing every conceivable program into the antiX live-usb,
we kept it small and lightweight but made it extremely easy to
customize. If there are programs you want that are missing from the
live system, simply install them via Synaptic or cli-aptiX, do a
live-remaster and voilĂ , it's just like those programs came

Also, lots of helpful tutorials here
