Re: What is in your bugout bag?
If you need a bugout bag you are not going to make it very long, as your supply of items will run out. learn what you can do with what is around you. first thing i did was to make sure i could start a fire with only things found in the woods around me. next learn the vegetation in your region to know what all you can use and what you can use it for. after that, shelter. and last learn to hunt with items from only the woods, bullets run out. not knocking any one with one but what happens if you cannot make it to your next location?

Speaking of multitools, I have a Leatherman Skeletool. Should I upgrade to something else?

Re: What is in your bugout bag?
It's a horrible thought, but guys with bug-out shelters already picked out and stocked, what are you doing to assure that they will still be yours when you get to them?

If you know what's there, so does someone else. As much as we like to think we're sneaky, people are pretty transparent most of the time.

Hope it doesn't happen to anyone, but make sure you have a plan, and some basic skills if you have to fall back and build a whole new shelter somewhere else like a state park or something.

Side note:
Don't depend on GPS to make your way to your location. Get a map, topographical would be good because they also show water sources (creeks, rivers, lakes).

One thing I have included in my BoB is an emergency specific stuff sack. One if for nuclear, one is for biological and the third is for natural disaster.

I have heard when all else fails, ham radio will be the last working technology left.

Anyone got a ham radio in their BoB?

Damn you guys are paranoid. Do you make all your purchases with cash? Do you only do web searches from computers you don't own that aren't in your house?

Do you not think it is easy to track WHAT IS SHIPPED from outdoor/survival companies to learn what the hot items are for bugout bags? Or what is shipped TO the outdoor stores from the manufacturers?

Jeez.
