MP calls the ball...like we like
If the shit hits the fan and I need to get home I'm kicking in some doors and taking what I need. Am I a looter? No I'm desperate.
No, you're a piss poor Boy Scout. And think you'll fucking die if you don't get a BigMac in your fucking gut by noon. Good talk.
Better hope you're in a commune or Toothy's yard when you wanna start kicking doors....terrible plan in most of the country. Oh wait, you're in Californistan. Well, you got 50/50 odds of either eating an 870 barrel or finding someone's granola stash. Whatever works for you.
been eyeballing this one
Why do you hate combat boots? You sure are an uppity fucker.
I don't particularly pack a BOB, or whatever, but since I pretty much never empty shit out of my truck, I'm bound to have most of what I need there anyway
...And that's exactly why people arm themselves in their homes.
You didn't plan for the future, so you feel comfortable helping yourself to my shit because you're "desperate".
It's good to see you kids back together again.
He's in California, where every home is a bounty of good will and generous resources. Chances are, everyone will just share with him and the communal love will sustain him in his time of need.
I heard he wears a skirt. And hates combat boots.
I am not a conspiracy theorist, or paranoid, I just believe in being prepared & like other people who have posted, I have used my EveryDayCarry/Get Home Bag as well. My bag doubles as my lunchbox at work & my book bag (I always have something new I am reading).
**Despite how much it LOOKS like the stuff I carry would fill the bag, it actually all fits in the space where the water bladder goes (approx 2 liter flat space) leaving me the rest of the bag (about 12-13 liters) for normal everyday stuff.
My EDC back pack clips onto my travel Northface BackTrack travel backpack & the small pack is designed to fit ANY airline carry-on sizing, so when I travel I still have my EDC stuff (except for the firestarters & blades of course). There is a small First Aid kit in there (just forgot to take a photo).
(EDC is part of my travel backpack: )
My Bug Out Bag is a different story. Here is a pic - but too much in there to list in a couple minutes. This is also my grab and camp bag - I have enough in there to be completely self sustaining for 4 days to a week (except for more water than I have in there - only carry 3-6 liters in the pack). The sleeping bag is a lightweight fleece lined bag that I strap on with quick straps (just not strapped on at time of pic).
Bag : Eberlestock Haltrack (http://www.eberlestock.com/Halftrack Backpack.htm )
Total "grab weight" : 37 pounds.
The backpack is a "3 day assault pack".
This guy even travelled the world for a year with the same pack -----> http://frysinger.net/packing/
Dood. That's a bit of all right. Might I suggest a grease pencil? I velcro one to the bars of all my bikes and stuff. Anyway.
The grease pencil is a good idea, but I figured the Sharpie or the ball point will do alot of what the grease pencil would. Maybe replace the taperoll pencil with a grease one cut down.
Yeah it seems alot - but it's either in my truck, in my worktruck hung up behind my seat, or on my back/bike. I used to think it was a ton, but its very light, keeps the extra little things out of my pockets & carries all the other daily things I have always.
I know people who laugh but then I point out their heavier briefcases or courier bags. lol !
I hear you. I don't use the cuttables.. you can get like a twelve pack of mechanical Listo's and an extra pack of leads for like $10 from the factory. They're about $5 ea at any given store near you. Anyway.
nice link, that guy has some serious research into his gear.
I have some larger wheeled pelican stuff for the home kits, 3 day kits etc that I need to revamp.
Was looking for something to travel with and that could be used at work and hide some precautionary items etc.
Grease pencil hmmm
oh and coho, what do you use to boil the water in for your tea bags? Is there a pot/cup in the bag?
Note the choice of a Stainless Steel waterbottle instead of a Nalgene....
Everything has to serve more than one use (if possible)
BUT.... know how to make a hobo stove out of ANY metal tin / can.
