I agree with most of the stuff I have read. I also carry Bouillon cubes in my bug out bag they are not very nutritious but easy to carry and when on the run they make you feel full so you can think straight and plan your next move. They also have a reasonable amount of sodium. I am also a big fan of Leatherman tools and a 6 in crescent wrench. You never know when you need to take something apart or build something on the move.

go here "ultralightweighthiking' on youtube. the BOB has to be kept as light as possible. Mine is 12 lbs, before the food, water, NVD goggles, concealable armor, and guns/ammo/accessories. Keep the total under 40 lbs, or you'll turn an ankle, etc, before the first day is done.

Caches are the only realistic answer.

How about dry meat

here is what dry pike looks like.
dried herring
dried smelt
dried hamburger
dried peaches
dried persimmons
out in rural Alaska we dry our own berries like blue berries, crow berries, cranberries, and rose hips.

a window screen propped across in front my toyo stove 56 to a chair back I can dry massive ammounts of berries passively, instead to oven baking, I package them in paper lunch bags or in old mayonase jars.

Anything in the original kit has probably rotted after 7 years.

1. You just ran into a desperate family with a sick kid, against your intuition, you help the family & they jump you, the momma just hit you on the side your head and in the face with her kids softball bat busting out a few your teeth, your head is throbbing, your dizzy and had thrown up, poppa had his k-bar and you got a few deep slashes on your hands and arms ss they stripped you of your back pack, you managed to escape before they killed you for your boots.
2. You bugged outta town, second week in boonies (had syill to make it to your BOL due to blocked roads) you jump a camp and make off with their multi-fuel stove, you drag it back to your where your family is hiding and attempt to boil some swamp water, the stove blows up and you char a bit (2nd degree burn) on your face, arms and right fore-arm & hand.
3. Your in a camp with your family, you had been cleaning some fish, slipped and nicked your left thumb web.
its becoming inflamed 4 days later and iodine was and your topical ointment is not working.
4. Third week your BOL was rushed by a gang of 30 desperate people, your group barely escaped, your wife has some buckshot in her back and waste area, you have a bullet wound in your lower left thigh, your kids are sick with the black ****s and they have high fevers.
5. You were hunted by a gang as you were scrounging, diving over fences and dodging through burnt buildings you sprain an ankle, jamb 2 fingers of your right hand, then dive through a window onto some broken glass.
Whats in your bag for that?

I need to get one of those so I can dry foods myself.

Wow! They sure are expensive though !!!

Tagging this for future reference.

Thanks Rex.
