    Didn't notice a good set of wire cutters for cutting fence. Farmers have this bad habit of putting up fencing in some areas. While I'm sure your rig is up to running them over the wire can tangle around moving parts and cause you some problems. Since the plan is to not use roads I would say bring good cutters. Might also want some short fence wire yourself to tie back the unruly strand while you dirve through.

    I'd be leery about going through farmer's fences or fields, particularly during a SHTF situation. A lot of them have guns too, and they might not take too kindly to that sort of thing.

    Maybe two/three extra tires with rims (+ your full size spare) - in case you completely shread the tires and fix-a-flat doesn't work.

    I'm Planning On Staying Here...

    This saves a lot of transportation supplies...
    I do have an enclosed cargo trailer for 'quick' loading of food, ammo, gas and camping gear, etc...in case the local nuke plant (100 miles) is damaged...other than that, I'm staying where I know the people and the surroundings...

    Lots of food, and ammo will insure a safe 'homeland'...

    Ruining crops and trespassing are damn fine ways to get shot full of holes. Stick to the roads, and save your off road fantasies.

    Two 8 foot of sections chain link fence, you can drive on them through mud or sand. They work better for sand than mud.

    [QUOTE=lowflyer;264151]GPS and one of these:

    OOOH! I COVET. I needed one of these when I busted the rear axle off road two years ago. Maybe I wouldn't have needed to hike out. Coincidentally I actually can weld fairly decent. I probably need one of these myself. Arg...If only I had the money to play these days.

    One of those welders would be nice, however not very practical for a college student to buy.

    As far as ruining cops and trespassing being good ways to get shot. I have spent enough of my life on farms, and moving machinery and vehicles on them to know better than to run straight through the fields ready to be harvested or in some other way that would tear up the crops. And shooting someone for trespassing last time I checked was a bad idea in Ohio. This idea would be purely for a SHTF scenario, and as long as I was tearing up their property and crops, I think that most people would have bigger things on their mind than shooting at a moving truck driving in an empty section of field.

    A bug out truck is practical?

    I have a bug out motorcycle, a bug out truck, a bug out minivan, and several pairs of bug out shoes.

    Well, I already have the truck, and I actually already had most of the stuff I keep in it, so right now, it is more practical than a 1000 dollar welder.

But, I also have a small electric air compressor that I bought at Home Depot for about $40 that is made especially for tire inflation. It can be charged up and will inflate all 4 tires on a single charge or it can run off the cig. lighter with an adapter. It has already saved my bacon once when I had a flat and then discovered to my dismay that my spare was also flat. I was able to air up the spare and be on my way.
    Take that a level further:
    1. A pair of inntertubes of the correct size to fit into your tire and go around the rim.
    2. Some strong thread/cord and a big needle (something along the lines of sail fixing setup) so that you can patchup a tear in the tire so that you can stick an innertube inside.
    3. A proper plug kit. Safety Seal is one that comes to my mind: it's good quality and includes everything (way better then the cheap stuff you buy in an automotive stores).
    4. Spare valve stems and valve cores: I have seen people loose a whole valve when a branch just reached out and snagged it.

    None tire related:
    Since this is a SHTF vehicle, go buy some welding rods and make sure to have jumper cables as well as heavy gloves and shade 9 or 10 goggles. Even if you don't know how to weld, when you get into trouble (breakage) that requires welding someone might come along that knows how.
