    I think there's one or two of these kind of threads around here somewhere. I did a quick search and found my last reply here:

    I voted I could throw one together if needed --- I do have my old jump kit from when I was an EMT in the trunk of my car so I am part way there. I would only need to grab the mags for the 9mm and in some case the gun and whatever else I felt I need to put it together. I can not carry at work and do not like to leave it in the car so the gun lives in the safe at home 5 days a week.

    If you'd like help preparing a BOB, see my preparedness guide below or PM me via the site. Just returned from the Governor's Hurricane Conference and will be conducting a series of seminars in Florida this month...There's some really cool new stuff out there.......need food, water storage, solar power, I can help you understand the marketplace.....when you live prepared, you're prepared to live!

    Got mine. I've gotta re-vamp it though. First child is due in less than 3 weeks! I believe there will definitely be some necessary changes.

    Although we don't have a BOB...exactly...we do have supplies sorted and stacked on shelving. Food, water, medical stuff, etc. We could pack and run pretty quickly.
    Excluding nuke, chem, or bio problems...we plan on being right at home if the SHTF...

    Stay armed...plan ahead...stay safe!

    yep, you need to make changes

    I have one but I'm going to make changes myself
    I'm going to make a bag for me, the wife, and one for the little man (backpacks with individual food/snacks/water, other individual items like ammo, flashlights, radios), and I'm making one big one with other supplies (extra water, snacks, emergency tent/sleeping bags, AMMO, weapons accessories, etc; OTC medications, toilet paper, and other items I haven't completed yet)

    I think I may need to go ahead and start while I have a little extra time huh?

    yup. Got one. Here in NYC, it always seems like society is on the verge of collapse. Mostly just backpacking equipment and supplies, but given the city it's a little lite on weapons...

    think you don't need this stuff...? check out the videos coming out of the China earthquake this week:

    I have already bugged out. If the SHTF I just need to drop some trees and boulders to keep all you City folk from invading my space.

    I love that plan, sounds like something we could all take to heart.

    I know seven Bob's. One is my VP. Most of my Bob's are in California though, so not sitting here nearby. Sorry given the thread title I couldn't resist.

    Short of my dwelling being uninhabitable I'm staying put. I travel for a living so if for some reason I would need to leave, it would take about 7 minutes to pack. If my place is uninhabitable then it won't matter about packing anyway, and if I had a bob it would likely be destroyed as well. So no matter either way.
