I don't have a B-O-B.
The only thing I'm thinking I'm going to be taking with me if it ever comes to me having to leave my home is all the cash I can get my hands on, my rilfe and pistol, and as many bricks of ammo as I can comfortably carry in my backpack.
I do however have a stocked cache with the following stuff, (at least what I can remember, I know there's more, but didn't keep the list when I got done packing it in).
Aluminum Foil (Heavy Duty)
Ammo .22 LRHP (Packed in sealed PVC pipe with desiccant)
Battery Free Flashlight
Cell Phone with a few batteries
Extreme Weather Sleeping Bag & Ground Pad
Field Surgical Kit
Fold up Sun Glasses
Hand Crank Multi-Band Radio With Cell Charger
Heavy Duty Plastic Bags
Long Sleeve Shirts
Match Safes (10) Full Of Strike Anywhere Matches
Rifle (Packed in sealed PVC pipe with desiccant)
Toiletries (Soap, Toothpast, Toothbrushs)
Tools (just basic hand tools)
Water Filtration Device
Water Purification Tablets
It's been there for a number of years, and most of the stuff is packed in weather proof storage bags with desiccant, so it should last a good long time.
Now, I seriously doubt that I will ever need any of the stuff in that cache, and the only thing there that I might bring out someday would be the rifle, but seeing that it only cost me $65.00 at an auction, I don't think so. You might be asking yourselves why I have the wet suit? I donít know how many of you have ever been diving, but that wet suit sure did keep me warm in some mighty cold water for a pretty long time. Figure if nothing else, I can wear it while Iím snorkeling for fish in those ice cold mountain lake. Might make a good pressure suit in needed. Just packed it in because I had it.
Took me awhile and a bunch of trips to pack all that stuff in, and I know I'll never pack it back out out again, so it's there to stay. Maybe some day somebody will find it and wonder what the hell was on that fools mind. Then again, it just might save someone's life.
