Have at it, all suggestions are fair game. Do you live in a city, suburbs or rural? Are you going to stay put or bug out? Do you have an evacuation plan? Are you hooked up with like minded people in your neighborhood? Do you know your neighbors?

Freeze dried food. Datrex bars, water purification, turbo lighter, ka bar, paracord, antibiotics and meds, rain gear, tarp, firestarters, glock 21, dry bag with a change of clothes, wool blanket. More than that to heavy to carry. Bug out vehicle is different.

I’m not leaving. Unless you are living in the city near the bad parts of town, leaving would be stupid.

I live in a small town, but a long way from the city. Our intention is to bug in (with or without the bldg being in tact. If we leave, it will have to be by car.

We have car kits for when we leave the immediate area.

Our bugout bags are backpacks but are effectively permanently backed softsided luggage to which we would add other things...like weapons and additional food.

BOBs are fun mental exercises, but history looks unkindly on refugees.

Bugging IN is the best solution, unless you have a settled, stable, stocked and FORTIFIED bug-out location.

Anyway, I’ve seen BOBs that weigh over 100 lbs. Not bad in a car, but if you’re forced to foot it, 35-45 lbs might be more realistic and survivable.

I worked on my bug-out bag all day yesterday. Except it is an entire diesel truck: locked, loaded, and well-supplied. Yesterday did maintenance on fuel filters, generators, solar battery bank, etc. Regarding neighbors, in my case I act as aloof and unsociable as possible. No need for them.

I believe in packing the BOB for when I travel away from home.

Provides enough for 72 hours of calorie intake, water purification, shelter, first aid needs, dry clothes, navigation aids, survival knife, etc. Also enough extra ammo for what ever I was carrying concealed on that particular trip.

We have routes scoped out, and a stash of supplies in our trunk and some extra bags at the ready. We also keep a close eye on the non-American news so when SHTF we will be out 48 hours before the sheep get the word.

30.5’ 5th wheel, 120 lbs. of propane on board, dual fuel everything (propane, electricity)80 gallons of potable water, 4 KW generator. Sitting behind a well-maintained F-350 7.3L Powerstroke that can burn vegetable oil if need be. Pantry stocked with as much canned and dried food as it can hold. Ammo for every pistol, rifle and shotgun I need stashed everywhere. All I need is a few minutes to hook up and someplace to go.

[ What’s is your bug out bag? ]

More important than that.. “IS”...

1) Where are you going to bug out “TO”?...
2) with what transportation?..
3) for how long?..
4) and what are you going to do when you get there?..

** else why leave?..
