    Ok it is all over the news Zombies have been sighted in a town close to yours. You have your BOB and all your gear ready to go. You have the wife and kids loaded in the trusty pick up and your ready to get the hell out of dodge quick fast and in a hurry. You have just enough time and just enough room to take along 3 luxury items.

    What three items do you take and why? What purpose do they serve?





    Ready GO.

    OK, I assume that every gun, piece of ammunition, and camping gear I own counts as "necessities" not 'luxury items' so, hear's my 3 'luxury' items:

    1) Chap-stick- Sorry, I'm addicted!
    2) Radio - It would be nice to get some tactile information/instructions from the free wold.
    3) Tequila - OK, I'm a freaking drunk. What can I say!

    HHhhmm three items

    First would be a Radio = Listen for any news reports if they were available and to of coarse drown out the whine of the wife and kids

    Second would be a fishing pole = catch food and get away from the wife and kids

    Third a Case of Hard Alcohol = would last longer than a case of beer and would also be good to drown out the wife and kids

    OK wait, I want to change my answer...
    I swap out chapstick for a fishin' pole (and tackle box).

    Well since most of what I would call a luxury item requires being plugged in, I won't include that, and since my shotgun (the best luxury item of all time) would be along for the trip no matter what anyone told me, i'll narrow it down to this.

    1- Short Wave/CB radio, Good to know whats going on around me.
    2- Coffee, Alcohol is nothing to even consider when you and yours are in the sh$&.
    3- Chocolate, a happy wife equals a happy shotgunner.

    You should already have a collapsible fishing pole, line, lures, hooks, bobs, sinkers, etc. in your bug out bag. You should also have a radio (am/fm/sw) so you can get information.

    A deck of cards or two or travel games (if you have younger kids and want to keep them occupied and entertained), and booze are also things to keep in a BoB, but they are not exactly necessary for survival. It is better to have a way to be entertained and keep your mind off the zombie hordes than pace around worrying about stuff you can't change immediately.

    For me, it would be a solar charger and a laptop so I can stay current on FTF, and a case of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

    This reminds me of a show I saw about Wal Mart. Their computers track the most popular items just before a hurricane, so they can automatically route those items to those stores when a hurricane is predicted.

    So what's the top two items sold after a hurricane warning has been issued...

    Beer and Pop Tarts :eek:

    BoB stands for Bug out Bag. Essentially a bag full of items you can quickly grab on the go incase of an emergency.

    1. Bic lighter
    2. dank
    3. the glass fish

    I'm not sure the lighter wouldn't already be in the BOB, so an alternate for the Bic would be Southern Comfort, 100 proof (tastey and nutritious).

    Wine yeast, its small and portable. I can find the juice required later quality yeast will be harder to come by.

    mp3 player - not needed enough to be part of my BOB but would be fun to have if I have the time to grab it.

    deck of cards - there will be downtime having something to do that does not require power would be handy.

    I cant believe not a single person would grab toilet paper. Think of the bartering value with other survivors! White gold I tells ya, white gold!

    Man there is a new zombie thread at least once a week. I'm glad to see that I am not the only one who is trying to prepare for the zombie apocalypse. Well, aside from the obvious guns, ammo, and knives...

    1. Dog food.
    2. Books and magazines.
    3. Fishing tackle (I don't like the taste of seafood, but starving is worse}.

    +1 good idea!

    I always tell people that think you should stock up on gold because it will be good for barganing with, that in a situation like that, the only thing that will be worth trade will be food, water, and ammunition.

    I stand corrected, TP may be worth trade too!
