Couldn't make it to the survival dinner.
Just curious as to what you guys have packed in your go bags?

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...
