Default Question

I get that this is a question that lives a little in the theoretical: What if you had to bug out?

I agree with an earlier post: Unless there was an environmental problem, such as nuclear fallout, I wouldn't leave my home at all.

Now that said, I am very much interested in getting all (within reason) of the items listed here. Probably I'll just budget a little each month toward the effort. Chances are, I'll store them in a watertight box with a bag to carry it all. But I won't pack the bag unless and until needed.

If there were ever a situation I had to bug out RIGHT NOW, that would be a very bad day. Thankfully, I have no dangers such as tsunami or forest fire here. Most dangers would provide at least some amount of lead time to pack up and ship out.

2 flash drives, 1 with personal records for the family, 1 with photo's and music

Some of our bags contain the same items, some contain what that person will be best suited using, like the daughter and the med kit. We all carry ammo all the same caliber except my .22lr, we all keep small bills in our bags also. The bags are placed by our panic safe spots with a meeting point agreed upon. If only one of us is at home that person is responsible for getting all of the bags to the meeting point. I am sure there are items I have not mentioned but we take things out and replace them with other items every so often.

We have SHTF containers but these are far too heavy for BOB type of situations. Hopefully we can come back and retrieve these items or stay at home after the initial threat is over.


Paranoid or Prepared? You call it what you want, I just want to protect my family as best as I can.

Mine has evolved a bunch of times through the years, many years.

Mine is very personalized, with many homemade items or custom made items. Getting older makes things change, along with medical conditions. I actually have a 3 wheeled cart. It is scavanged from a 3 wheeled baby stroller, the jogging kind. Rear wheels are now 26 " mountain bike type rims and tires. It carries about 50# for me and makes life much more bearable. It easily rolls over up to 10-12" obstacles. I can make much better time and leave the load off my old shoulders and roll them along.

It's been funny on the trail, people stop and look at me, then give the thumbs up. It has brought back hiking and camping for me.

The main thing about a BOB is getting out with it and making sure it works for you. Use and practice is your way to making it just right for yourself.
