My bug out bag.
I have assembled my BOB and i would like some suggestions on what to add to it. Currently it is in my big backpacking pack and the items in it are
1 Sierra Designs rain jacket
1 roll of nickels
7 glow sticks
1 2 gallon water bag
2 vinyl ponchos
100 ft 550 cord
35 ft nylon rope
2 space blankets
first aid kit
one man Hubba tent from MSR
6x8 poly tarp
ground tarp for Hubba tent
streamlight stylus pro (AAA)
streamlight 4 AA
streamlight PT 2L
Katadyn hiker pro water filter
2 razor blade's
9 compressed sawdust fire tinder
2 ferrocium rod's
7 Wetfire tinder cubes
I am planning buying a case of MRE's for food within the next two weeks
I also have 5.8 ounces of silver as well. anything i should add, i am 17 so a gun is at least a year away.
If you ever have to bug out then your compass and other small items should be carried on person
OK, I gots to know! What are you going to do with the roll of nickles???:confused:
Also not sure how good of an idea the pyrex bowl is. They make camping gear out of metal that might be a better idea.
Try to keep your gear to about 40lbs. Much more than that and it won't be practical for long distance travel.
Add a pair of utility/work gloves. Also I'm assuming that you have a retractable razor blade cutter to go with your razor blades. You might want to consider water treatment pills/system as well.
couple of rolls of hard candy (lifesavers) for calories.
Lose the multiple lights and batteries. Get a squeeze light from KMart.
Leatherman tool to replace some of the others.
GOOD hacksaw blade.
GOOD first aid. Include Immodium caplets. Bad water= bad case of diarehhea- which can kill you.
Small bottle of water treatment tabs (backup for the filter) and a canteen. Add canteen cup, lose the bowl.
stocking cap. Cheap, light, small. Heat loss from head is a major problem in cool weather.
If a firearm is not possible yet due to age (even if it IS possible) add a keychain sized OC Pepper spray.
I noticed this deficiency in mine, too: MATCHES. There are a lot of firestarters in your pack, but not the most obvious and easiest.
I heard it said that, since the most probably reason for bug-out is a local disaster, one should have enough cash for a plane flight for all members of your family. Chances are, a bug-out situation won't be because of the total collapse of society.
I have a few thousand dollars in cash for this reason.
Do ya'll think the nickels are to have in hand during combat? I'd shoot a guy before pulling out a roll of nickels. Maybe his bug-out location is in Las Vegas!:eek:

They're in there for pay phones.
I was wondering about the nickels, too.
That seems like an awful lot of batteries...I carry a lot of camera gear and I know they can get heavy...
1) If that were true, he'd have dimes because of the double in value and half in weight. Or quarters.
2) That's only $2. How far would 2 bucks go on the phone?
Not logical. Good try, though. Keep it up, Tex. It's good to have new members.
EDIT: Oops, this is the OP talking. I can't call his own answer illogical. How about I say it this way: Tex, you ought to go with a roll of dimes for that purpose!
Oh and when you turn 18, two boxes of .22lr
I prefer hollow point.:cool:
