Staying warm:
Is your gear capable of keeping you "warm" in the coldest temperature of both your area, AND the next climatic zone north of you, on the absolutely COLDEST days that occure in that area (NOT the average ... that won't kill you, the absolute WORST days will kill you)

Re: Your favorite Bugout, Survival piece of equipment
Think about getting (and pre-packing) a backpack setup for going someplace like the Appalachian Trail (or Pacific Coast trail) for a month or so as your basic set up. THEN test out all the gear on a 3 to 5 day trip!!!

Once you have actually CARRIED the equipment and used it for a few days THEN and ONLY THEN can you separate the wheat from the chaf.

needed items imo in importance to basic survival:
#1 Water
#2 Staying dry
#3 Having shelter
#4 Staying warm
#5 Food
#6 Staying safe (this is where guns "might" come in ... way down the list)
#7 Remaining mobile (ie: light weight)

The reality of a TRUE BOB bag is that unless you are going to be in an area with high personal risk from animals or people you can NOT carry heavy weaponry!! (or heavy anything) You are going to be limited to light weaponry or NO weaponry only.

Yep ... all over the varous boards one reads that people are going to carry this or that weapon with LOTS of ammo. I dare them to actually pack for a two week trip on the Appalachian or Pacific Coast trail and ACTUALLY CARRY on their backs what they say they would take on either of those trails, for even 5 days!! When faced with reality they will quickly realize that they are just Arm Chair outdoorsmen and are NOT PHYSICALLY CAPABLE of doing what they claim they will do.

If one is ALWAYS going to remain vehicle bound then of course one can carry a LOT more stuff ... but if that is the case then face the issue up front that one is going to be limited to vehicle travel ... and once one can no longer buy gasoline whenever and whereever they want then one's plans are toast.

Re: Your favorite Bugout, Survival piece of equipment
My katydyn water filter & flint and steel & real nice med kit (with the knowledge on how to use it).Ultralite bivy,ultralte bag & hammock,vicodin.
 Quoting: FUBAR


The med kit is the hard part.

Wish i could legally own morphine, diazepam, epinephrine and half a dozen very important survival medications. Some of the very strong antibiotics are hard to obtain also.

IV equipment is pretty important too, its amazing how fast infection complications like diarrhoea can kill people if you dont have a drip.

Somebody could catch crypto from river water after being a bit rundown after a few weeks on the move and it could end badly.
 Quoting: Dr Discordia


well morphine is almost impossible to get, but the lesser version of it TRAMADOL is easier to obtain as a pain-killer or pain-easer.
maybe you can use that in your medipack??
i don,t want to give anyone idea,s for drugs or something but i get it that its only ment for emergency uses is it not??

for me personally, ive started collecting a few months ago every month i buy certain items, medikits,tarp,knife,axe,saw
rope, en food and a waterfilter of course.

i live in holland where there is much much much water everywhere, so my next buy is gonna be an inflatible kayak(with some repairkits and 2 component expanding foam if an irrepairable leak appears i fill the chambers with that.)
i wanna go on bike or on foot so no hardshell kayak for on top of a car, its no use, there,s gonna be traffic for dozens of miles long everyday, let alone if there ever would be a disaster here.

i also need a tent and woodgasburningstove and some more stuff.
got my 100 liter backpack today in the mailorder.
its gonna go on my back for walking and on my bikeluggage cart if i go for distances.
well my new bug out bike is gonna be a cheap one as i think i leave it behind somewhere if it needs to be.
the bike cart i choose is also manageable as a handcart and i choose a 2 person kayak so the handcart should fit in nicely, also a 2 person kayak can handle more luggage weight

well every month nothing happens i get more usefull stuff.
and even when nothing happens?? well i don,t want it to go bad, but i know that it,s gonna be bad.

i might have the flee my home, or kicked out of my home if i can,t afford the mortgage anymore because of bad economy.
well then i have no choice to survive.
better to see it now and act on it now, most people of holland are just as ignorent as the rest of the world.
so arrogant, nothing will happen to us.

well we will see.

Re: Your favorite Bugout, Survival piece of equipment
Well, I've got a nice Leatherman. I think I'd pick that as #1 item, just because it can do so MANY things. Katadyn water filter second.

I'm going to give you all some knowledge now that may prolong your life, in case you DO have to bug out.

We are right now receiving a whole lot of dangerous radiation leaking down through our weakened atmospheric and magnetospheric protection. It's killing animals and sickening humans, and is, I believe, the 'mysterious disease' that is killing off children in India now. I believe it's x-rays and microwaves doing the main internal bodily damage. Remember when eight people sickened at the beach over Memorial Day weekend in Chicago when it was 88 degrees? That's why: spaceborne and solar radiation is currently frying the planet.

First, some of the symptoms to look for in yourself and others: ear-ringing, pressure headaches, 'night sweats', damage to immune system, abdominal discomfort, swollen thyroid, skin rash, occasional dizziness, shortness of breath, nausea, lethargy, sleeplessness at night, and eventually brain damage, as well as strokes and heart attacks.

Now, your BOB isn't gonna do you much good if you lay out a tent unprotected from that radiation. Eventually you will sicken, possibly go insane, and die. A tent will provide zero protection. So wherever you end up, and however you get there, be aware of this danger. Try to sleep beneath as much mass as possible, and metal if possible. Caves, beneath overhangs, surrounded by trees, whatever you can work out. It might be worth keeping some of those mylar blankets around, as I think those have aluminum in them, and I know for sure Reflectix does (and it's lightweight too).

So there ya go. It'd be a shame for a buncha people to bug out, be doing okay...then turn psychotic from the brain damage, cause havoc to others, then die. Hope the info helps. BTW, this radiation is hitting us every day NOW, so if you aren't already taking some precautions, well, you ought to consider it.

Think about getting (and pre-packing) a backpack setup for going someplace like the Appalachian Trail (or Pacific Coast trail) for a month or so as your basic set up. THEN test out all the gear on a 3 to 5 day trip!!!

Once you have actually CARRIED the equipment and used it for a few days THEN and ONLY THEN can you separate the wheat from the chaf.

needed items imo in importance to basic survival:
#1 Water
#2 Staying dry
#3 Having shelter
#4 Staying warm
#5 Food
#6 Staying safe (this is where guns "might" come in ... way down the list)
#7 Remaining mobile (ie: light weight)

The reality of a TRUE BOB bag is that unless you are going to be in an area with high personal risk from animals or people you can NOT carry heavy weaponry!! (or heavy anything) You are going to be limited to light weaponry or NO weaponry only.

Yep ... all over the varous boards one reads that people are going to carry this or that weapon with LOTS of ammo. I dare them to actually pack for a two week trip on the Appalachian or Pacific Coast trail and ACTUALLY CARRY on their backs what they say they would take on either of those trails, for even 5 days!! When faced with reality they will quickly realize that they are just Arm Chair outdoorsmen and are NOT PHYSICALLY CAPABLE of doing what they claim they will do.

If one is ALWAYS going to remain vehicle bound then of course one can carry a LOT more stuff ... but if that is the case then face the issue up front that one is going to be limited to vehicle travel ... and once one can no longer buy gasoline whenever and whereever they want then one's plans are toast.

as i said: arrogance

nothing will happen to us all things will pass us by it will only happen to other country,s not ours.
when the economy collapses its great to live in holland in the streets, people are currently so nice to each other that when the shtf comes they will only get nicer right?
well of course you know that this is not true.

and where will you go and what will you eat and drink when this all happens??
you think mark rutte is gonna take care of us?? job cohen perhaps?? wilders then? nope they will all take care of themselves.
they don,t even take care of us now?? let alone if shtf.

better have a bug out kit and bug out plan for it.
exagerating or not , better have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

as for the kayak it weighs 12kg, the handpump weighs about 150 grams.
i wanna use it for leisure too so i don,t think its a bad purchase.
as i said it gonna be transported in a bike cart.
i don,t have a drivers license and don,t have money for a camper.

people should all know to take care of themselves as best as they can, we have all kinds of insurances but not for our future, this fits for shtf just as it goes for religion.

in the end Jesus is the best bug out guy for me to go to.
but that doesn,t mean i have to be complacent with everything like hunger and thirst and looting.
not when you see it coming, and i see it coming.
so i act on it, in my own way for my own needs, someone else can live in a totally different region and need other means of survival.

Don't you guys get it yet, there is no preparing here with 'items'

The only preparation you can do is within your mind. Your physical possessions will not help you AT ALL. Get over the mindset of I need this or I need that to be safe and survive.

Just know, you already have everything you will ever need. But ofc knowing that doesn't help you operate on the frequency they 'need' you too.

well that,s nice, but can you eat that mindset??
and what mindset might that be?? stealing from others??
eating grass??
even with the strongest believes and the greatest faiths can you not make dirty muddy bacterial waterpools into clean drinking water without those physical possesions.

its always nice to believe in yourself, but when it goes down you don,t have that mindset anymore, its every man for themselfes and their family. so your only mindset is gonna be: I NEED FOOD AND I NEED WATER. well maybe you have a fishing rod(also a possesion) but that does not make the fish bite.

in the bible there a lots of text talking about posessions
they fished in boats with nets, they had sheephurds and tents.
they had food, water and a roof over their head. well there mindset was just to live life.
as must we, and we need certain items to survive, because we don,t have our own sheephurds and clean water everywhere.

get you mindset from the past present and future, get certain items before its too late to get them, and see if you can make it without life as you know it now.

I have a full underquilt for my hammock and a topquilt. The hammock has a bugnet and ive slept outside in it a few times.

Its like sleeping on a cloud a crescent shaped one.

Sounds really good. I'm going to buy a bugnet hammock this weekend!!

I have a Warbonnet Blackbird.

Its really easy to setup and take down.

Much lighter then a tent and more comfortable.

I can put my hammock up in places where nobody can tent.
