Couldn't make it to the survival dinner.
Just curious as to what you guys have packed in your go bags?
Honestly? I'm sure I'll leave a few things out:
Water: Unlimited supply
Katadyn Pocket water filter
3l Camelback pouch
Food: 10 days worth the following each day:
Mountain House freeze dried
USGI survival cookies
Crystal Lite drink packets
MSR Whisperlite International w/large fuel bottle
Snowpeak Ti cup
Evernew Ti cookset
MSR stainless spoon (has wrench end for cleaning the stove)
One set of BDU's
BDU Boonie hat
Shelter: (depends on if I am alone or not)
Eureka Zeus EXO2
Gortex Bivvy cover
Inflatable travel pillow
Arktis Halo3 medium/warm weather bag
Timberland 3/4 length sleeping pad
Kenwood Th-F6A Tri-band HAM radio
USGI Lensatic compass w/ tritium
AN-PVS7D Night vision goggles w/clip-on compass
Yukon HL 1 watt LED headlamp
Gladius 5W tactical flashlight
Brunton 14 watt flexible SolaRoll
All batteries standardized to AA and AAA Nicads
USAF Pilot Survival knife
USGI Tri-fold E-tool
Customized Browning Buckmark Rifle
basic small med kit, i.e. cuts, diharrea, fever etc.
Hygene/comfort:toothpast/toothbrush, shortened handle
72 hour candle (heat in the tent)
That's basically it, enough to live for 2 weeks in any season without having to shoot anything to eat with the ability to be completly mobile day or night and in contact with civilization if need be.
What kind of bag do you put it all into?
It's a copy of the British PLCE bag, called the Chinook Life Force.
60 liter capacity with 2 side pouches, DPM camo and desert tan rain covers, radio pouch with grommeted outlet for wires/drink tubes, sturdy construction and a great suspension/padding system.
Check it out, it's a great bag for about $90 shipped from Cananda.
Ideally you want something that has wheels or can be mounted to a wheeled cart.
Well, that depends on your BO plan. For me, that means throwing my BOB and mountain bike in my minivan and going far as I can with it before having to pedal. Kinda hard to drag a cart or even a bicycle trailer trough the woods-the road from Shit to Salvation isn't likely to be paved...
5 Pack of Condoms
1 Tube of KY
1 Double sided vibrating dong
4ft of rope
Candy? Is that you? Call me.
Good thread, good ideas.
