Well weather and geography definitely affect your precise equipment needs - I live up in Canada on the West Coast - so there is a LOT of salt water and cold weather. Titanium blades are better up here than steel (due to the cold/salt) but I also like to have a good steel blade as well because they keep their edge better.

A few general things - a medical kit (and the skill to use it!!, St Johns Ambulance or other medical training courses are pretty affordable and would be useful to do now).

Matches - with a candle - use one match to light the candle and hten use the candle to start a fire - saves matches. (Also tallow candles are edible, but gross)

Compass, Rope, at least 1-litre of water. radios if you're in a team. A good waterproof jacket with layers. A small Whetstone. Obviously, your firearm of choice and enough ammo to mkae it count.

Also - just as an aside make sure you ahve a good set of boots! If you're on the move nothing is more important than comfort/care for the feet.

This is really incomplete - but just some ideas to get one going.

I have a good kit. But I have considered adding a 22 rifle to it. I have been thinking about the old AR7. I believe that Henry is making it now. I bought one used about 20 years ago. It was totally unreliable back then. I think it was just the one I bought. Anybody have one? If so, do you like it? I am talking about the one that breaks down and stores in its own stock. I have several 22s. But not one of these.

Default Any one bought one of these?

Seems like a pretty good addition to a BOB, for 20 bucks... wondering about the quality of what's inside. For example - 20 piece first aid kit, but what does it include?

Yeah, I know, I spend too much time on thinkgeek.

A dog can pull a skid with a 50 or 60 lb load, chase down and retrieve food and offer protection and early warning.

Just a dog lover...

Just thought of something, don't know if it's ever been mentioned, but a few pictures (wallet size) of family or friends. When I'm at work, I can look in the top drawer of my tool box and look at a couple photos of my son and it lifts my spirits. So maybe it would help in something like this.

I would say that's a great idea. In a disaster it's quite possible that families will get lost or separated. A current photo of family members could not only help lift the spirits but also help you look for loved ones. They could posted on boards at any survival camps/shelters that are setup. Even if you only have 1 of each member and don't want to post it, a picture is worth a thousand words, and when trying to describe a person to someone who has had 10,000 other descriptions, and seen 50,000 refugee/survivor people that day - the picture could really help!
