Responding to my own quote, but is there anything I am missing for a 15 mile walk?I just ordered a Camelbak pack from Cabelas & plan to keep it in my vehicle. I can't have a firearm in my vehicle at work.
I was planning on: Water, ration bars, poncho, compass, first aid kit, multitool, Ka-Bar, pepper spray? Basically enough to be able to make it home from work on foot (15 miles) in case of emergency/SHTF.
You could get some MRE's to stock your pack with, they have a pretty long shelf life.I use two bags. One is smaller and it stays in my vehicle 24/7 and contains vitals for making it home.... Copy of my passport, First Aid essentials, compass, flashlight, batteries, weapons, and stuff like that. At home I keep a back pack with everything I need to travel; on foot, if necessary. In this bag, I also carry a SW/AM/FM crank radio and a change of clothes. I want to travel as light as possible as it is not my intention to be in any one spot for too long. I don't store any food, since it spoils. I will count on the "kindness" of strangers for whatever else I need along the way. I have lived under Marshal Law, and presently in hurricane country, so I have seen system failures in both services and governments. With that, all I can say is "Be prepared."
