For a while now I have been wanting to put together a Bug Out Bag, but have a tendency to over pack. Thinking of something for at least 2 months of get out of Dodge issues.
Things I know I need to have.
MREs (or some sort of food replacement)
Blanket (a keep warm something)
First Aid Kit
Flashlight + extra batteries
Fire starter (magnesium & flint)
Things I want to have/be able to carry
Hand gun + 200 rounds
Rifle + 100 rounds (long range - 500m+)
2 changes of clothes
A book on Medicinal/edible plants (my region)
Personal Hygiene items (tooth brush, deodorant...)
E-copy of critical documents. Bank accounts, ID (state issued, birth cert, SSN, passport...)
I know there is more, but this is all I can think of at the moment. My plan for WCS social collapse involves the wife and I vacating where we currently live, and a 120 mile trip (by highway - not part of my path) to my cabin in the mountains, which means crossing over the continental divide...12k feet. Theoretically 1 week on foot, with the wife in tow, probably closer to 2 weeks. With only 4 roads over the divide within 100 miles, I doubt driving any farther than the foothills (30 miles) will happen. Biggest concern is getting out of the city intact.
What's in your bag?
