I'm just wondering how many of you carry a bug out bag with you...sometimes? All the time? Also what kind of goodies you carry? beanie weinies? Pork and beans? I'm sure everyone carries their choice of Glock stuff and ammo....What else?

Working on 2 pelican cases, what i call my tool boxes. In there are the items one would need to increase your survival chances. Hatchet, knife, snare wire, rope, nylon string, fishing yo-yo's, fire starters just to start a list. I recnetly put in a couple of boxes of nails. These cases are water proof and very durable. They will withstand the harshest treatment and conditions. Could be buried for storage, while you would need to scout an area. I just add to it as i see something i feel would increase my survival time, wshtf.

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.

Responding to my own quote, but is there anything I am missing for a 15 mile walk?

A county map, definitely.

Some kind of light. Wether light sticks or a flashlight with extra batteries.

Go camping for a few days. Don't sit around a cook smores, go out for a hike. Try to live off the land.

Before you leave, make a list of what you "think" are the essentials. Pack them into a heavy duty ruck sack and that is what you take. Don't take everything and the kitchen sink, you will have to carry this around. Live off your pack for a minimum of 24 hours.

When you get home, look at what you used, what you didn't use. You'll have a good idea of the stuff you wish you had and the stuff you needed to have. Modify the first list to include your new must haves and get rid of the things you didn't use. Pack it all up and go out again. You can do this until you get it right but for most, 1 time is enough. We never know what we have until its gone. Smart people will get rid of it for a while because in SHTF, ignorance is not bliss. It will never be 100%. Things change and situations differ, but these trips and tips can really help you get prepared for the worst while you are hoping for the best.

Seems like you really need 1 these days, you'll never know when SHTF.

I don't yet, but I'm looking into getting 1. I'll update you once I do.

Didn't see anyone mention a large plastic tarp. I remember them being very handy in catching rain water to use.

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."

You could get some MRE's to stock your pack with, they have a pretty long shelf life.
