Mass casualty attack in your city. You have to get out to avoid fallout. You will never be coming back.

What kind of rig do you need to fit:

-wife
-kids
-pets
-clothes
-rations
-AMMO
-GUN COLLECTION

You've got to get it all together in 45mins to 1 hour and be on your way. What do you leave behind?
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 1:31:54 PM EDT
You pack everything you listed and leave behind everything else.

In my case nothing...

I had to sell off the gun collection I am only left with the guns I need, the rest can I handle.

Documents...bank accounts, insurance, SS cards, birth certs, etc. Gas. Tools.

You should have all this stuff ready to move.

I'm out the door with all of the above in under 15 minutes. BOBs are packed and ready to go. Family knows the drill. Copies of all important papers are in both BOBs. Longest to pack will be the extra ammo.

Bring all important documents (in case this doesn't escalate into a "full-blown SHTF scenario) and then your 1st, 2nd and 3rd line equipment for each family member.

You have assembled a BOB and suitable loadout for each family member...right?

Gun "collection"? No such thing. I only own what I need.

Wife and 4 girls (two teenagers, other 2 are almost 10). That's 5 women that go with me. I'm sure it would take almost as many vehicles.

If it were down to a bug out type situation, I think we would be OK.

Since the powers that be appearently don't like a seperate thread being opened for COULD YOU do it?

I have no problem holding out at the fort. As a matter of fact, I would be in FAR BETTER SHAPE to stay put. But if I had to leave.............that's a different story.

My weapons are ready. It'd be a pain deciding which ones to take (maybe that's a hint to thin the heard). Provided I knew which weapon(s) were going, my ammo is also ready. My food supply is ready. My water supply is almost there (sustaining part being worked on). Working on medical supplies, etc. I'm building rigs for the family. Kids might not carry firearms, but they can carry BOBs with food, water, clothing, survival gear, medical supplies, etc. All of them will have something to take.

The question is: assuming you were all at home (not at work, kids at school, etc), could you?

I'll stay at home, waiting for the JBTs to disarm me so I'm safe...

How many people in my city?? Realisticaly if what you described happened I think your gonna be fucked. There are 600,000 plus in my area, thats a ton of folks getting out, so I'm thinking your stuck in traffic and die.

If for some reason I could get out I would agree with what has been posted but I would throw in a can opener.

Well, I can tell you what I left with during the Hurricane Dennis bugout that my family hastily performed recently:

Initially, we had no intention of leaving, but the Weather Channel said that the storm had strengthened to a Cat 5, and for some inexplicable reason, the water was turned off to my house before the storm even hit. The winds were beginning to kick up pretty hard, and I had not filled up all my water cans yet. I could not risk being without drinking water for any length of time, so we decided to bugout in twenty minutes.

My dedicated bugout vehicle was packed like a sardine inside of the garage, and could not be removed without extensive unpacking of the garage. So, we were stuck with using my wife's aging Jeep Cherokee. Doing this, I lost all my uber-tactical mobile ham radio communications capability, as well as my GPS tracking beacon (so the relatives could see on the internet where I was during my bugout).

The wife got the front seat, the kids had the seat in the back, which they shared with a cooler filled with a few perishable food items and all the ice that I had in my freezer.

I could not find my $!@#! maps, so I just tossed a handheld GPS into the front seat. Under the driver's side seat went my SP101, and I tossed a few token rifles in the back (couldn't take the whole arsenal!). A few pre-loaded magazines for each rifle had been kept inside of each gun case, which saved a bunch of time. There would have been no time to load any, and it would have wasted precious time to find them if they were scattered about the house. Good thing that I had kept some "on deck".

I tossed my range back, which contains knives/ammo/binocs/rangefinders/etc, into the back. Also, a side zippered duffel bag full of several days worth of clothes and pornography. I keep a Cabelas toiletry kit ready to go at all times, so that went in with no hassle.

The wife took considerably longer to figure out what would be fashionable to run for her life in... She tossed clothes for the two kids into another bag, and then we locked the door and got the hell out of there. Our home is located only a few hundred yards from the beach, BTW.

Total time for us to hit the road was about 20 minutes, perhaps 25.

If it weren't for the fact that I had kept spare fuel on hand for such a contingency, we would have never been able to leave. All the fuel in the area had been sold out for 2 days. Also, we had the supreme luxury of being the only people in town dumb enough to bugout just two hours prior to a hurricane landfall. We hardly saw another vehicle until we got to Mobile, Alabama. In a crisis with no warning, the roads will be impassable from all the bumper-to-bumper traffic. We would probably have just decided to stay at the house, rather than to die out on the road.

Anyway, that is what our real-world bugout looked like. Pretty ugly.

Shit, I could load up everything I own in that time.


Well except for the couches.


On second thought, maybe the couches would make it out too.

Don't forget JEWELRY, Gold, silver, diamonds. They don't take too much room. 1st. You don't want to loose them, 2nd. they can be traded for food and other stuff.

We keep ours in a fanny-pack, in the safe, ready to go.

If you have time and space, some family pictures will be nice to have.

The only dilema we had, was the car we should use. We have 3 Jeeps, they are great but use a lot of gas, (one of them should only run on high test!) and my daughter has a Honda Element, funny looking car, but has a lot of space and great in gas. We decided to buy a roof rack for it and that will be the one we'll use.

Think: House burns down due to something odd while you are away.

Can you make it? Do you have everything you need to "Start Over" WITH YOU?

That is the mindset I use, and yeah, I have baggy pockets and always wear cargo pants. Just to cover the "What If's". Mostly because at this time in my life, it seems somebody has a voodoo doll of me and is beating the crap out of it.




brass

A very good point and very well made

I cannot imagine carrying enough supplies to tide me over for many weeks in the car.
But I have not imagined carrying survival equipment in my car
Perhaps I should look at a few ration meals and a compact shovel etc.

My garage is seperate from my house maybe I could store some of my gear there and some in the house .

not put all my eggs in one basket

I do it both ways. Car trunk has a case of MRE's and bunch of ammo, back seat has a bunch of stuff, etc. etc.

Home has a TON of stuff, so does the garage.

Anything 'VITAL" I keep with me, along with a Sig P245...

Might not be luxury, but better than the soup kitchen if things go worse...

Considering the events recently on your "island", might want to toss a bit extra here and there.

MOST useful things I have and duplicate everywhere:

Zippo Lighter
Folding Shovel
Axe
Alcohol Swabs
Suture Kit
Tampons (for bullet wounds, or a girl in "stress")

Covers the big things. I would say "guns and ammo are assumed, but I can't because of where you live. Just get Real Good with a .22LR.




I have two spare UK Army S10 respirators I've not thought about using. I could get some new canisters and add them to my stores. would it realy be worth it? What about my lad who is 3yrs old?

I'm interested in asking if most people actually have anywhere to bug out TO? I don't...unless I could make my buddy's family farm in Carolina...but that's 4 hours down the interstate with weekday or night time traffic.

If it was a REAL SHTF scenario, NO ONE in Northern Virginia would get very far. That was abundantly clear on 9/11.
Link Posted: 9/11/2005 2:25:04 PM EDT
in 45 mins, I would be able to load stages 1-3 of the stuff that my wife and I would take. Stage 1 is to last us 2-3 weeks, Stage 2 is to last us up to 1.5 to 2 months, Stage 3 is never comming back. Stage 1 takes 10 mins to load, Stage 2 is to the 20 min mark. Both have been tested. Stage 3 would be about 40-45, haven't tested. My wife and I live 5 miles from home near Dulles airport.

Places to go in WV, PA, and Ohio. We have the gas to fill up the BOV to any of the destinations plus 30%.

All bins are color tagged with sticker/labels with contents. Florescent orange=Stage 1
Florescent green=stage 2, florescent yellow=stage 3.

Everything is listed for each stage on a list that is kept in each car, 1 on safe, 1 on stage 1 bins. Pre-planning is everything.
