    I keep a ruck full of camp gear, as we camp out alot. All I would need to do was grab my tac. vest full of AR mags, my pistol and extra ammo. Food, water and all related hike /camp gear is ready to go. Also, by spending time camping year round, we 1. get to test our gear/ skills. 2. find out what works best. 3.Become in tune with the outdoors and feel comfortable sleeping/ living there.

    Throw out the water purification tablets and get one of the hand operated filters. They will take out all of the bad stuff. In Colorado some people I used to hike with would take a drink directly out of a fast moving, cold, "pure" Rocky Mountain stream, until he got a good dose of Giardia. While he was taking back all of the comments he had previously made to me about my filter, I was holding my nose....
