I've seen tons of excellent articles about how to assemble a BOB, and I've written an article myself on the topic. But first, some caveats: 1. I'm still testing the shelf-life of the pemmican I've made. I made it three weeks ago and left it in the bag. Tasted it today and it's still good. I'm going to see how long before it goes rancid, and then decide how much to make as I'll need to rotate the stock. 2. The bag is way too heavy for a Bear Grylls situation, but it'll work for short hops and access to a bug out vehicle. If I need to lighten the load for a long haul I'll decide that on the spot. 3. The medical kit is overkill for a BOB. I'm going to store it at the bug out location and carry a smaller kit. 4. This BOB is designed for my particular situation. I live in a rural environment and my home is my primary BOL. Your situation may vary! Here's the article. Enjoy, and I welcome your comments!
