So in light of "Sandy" the east coast is going through hell. It got me thinking, chances are if somthing were to happen to california it would be an earthquake. There are no warnings. It will just happen. With that being said, what's In your bail out bag? How much ammo? Medical supplies? Food/water etc? What are the must haves?

Google "ARKStorm" and do a search for "Bug Out Bags" or "BOB" here.

That's because everyone who frequents that board is tired of responding to the dozens of threads that have been made regarding the topic. The information is there for you. Most of us agree that it is a good idea to have some kind of contingency prepared in the event of disaster.

You won't be able to bail out. There will be no roads , no police, no gasoline. What you have at home is what you have. If you are not home it could take you a day to get home or more, walking.

A bail out bag is what is in your survival kit (normally a vest with many pockets/pouches) when you punch (eject) out of your no longer perfectly flying aircraft. A bail out bottle is a small cylinder of O2 that you breath while under canopy until you get down to 10,000', so you don't die from hypoxia. The true story of BAT-21 is a good to read.

A bail out bag is also your emergency survival kit that is usually kept with your life raft it you have to abandon ship suddenly. Adrift: 76 Days Lost at Sea is a good book to read.

A bug out bag is a portable ATM machine for roving gangs that will shoot you on sight & loot the expensive contents of your very big and too heavy duffel bag, if you are foolish enough to be walking around aimlessly during the chaos of a very bad SHTF or TEOTWAWKI. Read some true stories about fun times in Africa when the shooting & looting happens.

I like to keep it as light as possible with a nod to luxury. One for each member of the family. At a weight that can be carried easily and quickly.

No guns or ammo. Extra pair of decent shoes by the bag.

BugOutBag is simple regular backpack. No camo or any tactical look.

Multi tool, matches, cotton, coffee filters, 2 lighters, 2 nalgene bottles, 1 UV filter pen, Aqua Mira, 4 bottles of water, photocopies of important documents and info, extra ID & CC, CC info, bathroom tissue, cash, medical supplies for small cuts up to hemostat, emergency blanket x2, emergency bivvy/bag, 4 hand warmers, 1 medical surgery hat, 1 pair quick dry underwear & socks, anorak, lightweight gloves, nitrile gloves, food bars, Ti spork, Ti mini pot, portable stove, fuel (stove can be used with anything small and flammable), 2 small plastic cups, pics of family members, headlamp using AAAs, miniflashlights using single AAA x2, single 2 way radio, thin rope, zip ties, gorilla tape, tiny mini toothbrush, alcohol wipes, 1/4 bar of soap, small bottle of sanitizer, etc.

off the top of my head, what's in MY bag, missing a few items

This is what I was thinking. I have everything I need in the house. I suppose a BOB in the car might be useful. No telling where I'll be when the "Big One" hits.

I have nothing in a BOB. My earthquake strategy is to "Bug In". why would I leave my place, with all my food water and supplies? Is my house falling down? OK, then I'll pitch a tent in my backyard. Where would I Bug Out to, unless it's a Motel 6 in an unaffected part of the state?

If the emergency is a raging fire (like 1906 earthquake) then I'm screwed, but as long as I have my Visa card then my family can stay safe in that same Motel 6.

Is it a flood danger? I live too far up a hill for it to take out my house.

If I'm at work and disaster strikes and roads are closed, I have my mountain bike at work, it will take me an hour or two to get home, but I could do it. Not sure how I'd pick up the kids on a bicycle though!

But searching is so hard :(

It's like prepping. Very hard to do :(

Much better to let FEMA take care of you. You turn in your guns, and they give you an Armani suit, a 3-bedroom condo, and a mocha-chino-latte.

If you book your reservations more than a week in advance, they'll have cakes available for special occasions, like birthdays, weddings, etc. Let them know about any food allergies, and they'll accommodate. They're pet-friendly, too.

That's make perfectly good sense. A small caliber would also be good to have. It's legal in the trunk locked up.

Here's a tip I heard that can be very useful for a real problem in our society. Stock up on animal grade penicillin (pet shop). It's the same that humans take. If someone in your family gets sick there won't be a pharmacy because that will be one of the first places hit.

My pack has been edited a bit. This picture shows the supplies i had before and weights around 11 lbs.

It has....
7-8 ways to start a fire
water filter
water bag
bandana
fishing net
duct tape
safety pins
survival knive
led headlamp
led crank lamp
frying pan
pot
stove that doesnt need gas or liquid fuel
sleeping mat
TP
food for three days
sleeping bag
knife sharpener
anti itch cream
pepper spray
dish washing soap
shampoo
toothpaste
toothbrush
medical kit
compass
mirror
snake bite kit
napkin
mask
extra batteries
extra bags
sleeping pad
multitool

etc....i may have forgotten some things and im still editing this as i go along. i obviously need a better sleep system and a shelter. my bug out weapon of choice will be a glock 19 and at least 5 full magazines and at least one box of ammo. rifle of choice will be a AK and at least 100 rounds. i dont want to engage with people in a tough situation which is why i dont want to carry so many things. if i HAVE to be in a area where im around too many people and i cant carry a firearm, i will only have the glock 19 and maybe a smaller backup pistol just in case. that way, i dont have to carry around a cleaning kit or a bunch of CLP
