Jumpin in the discussion late....Disclaimer....I only read the first page of this post....if this has been said already, then I "second" it....haha I get the "jist" of it.

I'll post pics of my BOB (Level 1) later. Here's what I suggest as a general rule.

- Have a plan
- Share your plan with family / friends (you trust or are bugging out with you)
- BLEND IN when you bug out!! If you've got a Alice pack on your back with two side arms and an AR hanging on your chest and tiger striped face paint....it's gonna be a long walk. Most likely you'll have to fight your way out of town. Not worth it. All you'll do is put you and your loved ones in harms way.
- Stay calm, breathe. No need to panic. Trust your "Plan" and your skills. It's been mentioned, but PRACTICE your skills, fire starting, using a compass etc. Don't rely on your phone. Plan on it being useless.
- Triple redundancy is a must. Space is valuable. Make every ounce count and if at all possible, try and use the item for more than one thing. Self explanatory. Remember, you're going to be hoofin this stuff around for a few days.
- No canned goods. Too heavy. Period. (Remember....this is for Level 1)
- Stick to dehydrated food. There's several tasty options that will give you the calories you need. They weigh almost nothing. Suggestion...if you're over a 150 pounds, don't buy the single serving meals...you'll need at least the "2 Serving" meal.
- In your first aid kit add super glue. Tons of uses for this. close a wound or start a fire.
- Take a day hike with your BOB every now and then. This way you can adjust your items (weight and size) and it won't be the first time you've put the thing on when the SHTF. Leave the guns at home of course....unless you live outside of California (aka 'Merica) where it's legal.
- Have a plan for your pets. Bring 'em? Leave 'em? Eat 'em? Just sayin. If you're like me and my dogs coming with us, she's another mouth to feed. I've got to carry her food. For her, 3-days = 3 cups of dry food. That'll do it. She's a 60 lb. lab/husky
- Stay focused on your plan. Unless your plan includes meeting new friends on your way out of town, keep to yourself, don't trust anyone. People will do just about anything when they're scared, hungry and a grocery store just walked by. Situational awareness is key. Think....trust your "gut feeling" we call it a "God feeling" in our family. It's usually right. Keep going.
- You can survive for a long time with just a knife, fire starting device and your BRAIN. Trust me.
- Have fun with it. I went camping with my kids once and told them "we're only using what's in our packs this weekend"...."pack your own pack with what you think you'll need"....(oh boy)
*12 yr old daughter's pack - Doritos, a Gatorade, and her phone
*8 yr. old son's pack - Buzz Light Year and a sling shot. He get's points for the sling shot....we laughed.

I feel like I'm starting to lecture....haha. Good thread guys. I've gotten some good ideas. I'll make my way through some of the other 45 pages.

Be safe....never give up.

Seriously, this doesn't get mentioned enough that I've noticed. And im really not one to judge someone else choices, but its a big to me when I see people building there bags fully tactile operator status trying to look military with knifes, gear (stuff that should be packed inside) hanging all over on display. Why draw attention to yourself, that just screams look at me, I have weapons and survival gear and you dont, come rob me. Depending on the situation and how crazy things get, thats not always a good look to have and its unneeded anyways. Even if you choose a military styled bag with molle and half of what the military surplus store sells hanging all over it etc, just go with the plain black at least, or get a waterproof cover to make it look less flashy

Assuming I'm ready, willing, and able to use my weapons, how does that work? You "gray men" crack me up.

Not a proponent for either method, just do what you gotta do. That being said, taking out Rambo walking down the street is done when they aren't looking or don't have their weapon at the ready and you do, or via any of many methods that catch people off-guard. No matter how much you may try, you cant be at 100% alertness all day and night, day after day, neither can you see nor hear everything.

TTAK published a link to Survivor's Fortress "Bug Out Bag Essentials List: Our Complete Guide to Build a Good BOB" https://survivorsfortress.com/bug-ou...ist-and-guide/

Looks interesting and parts are very familiar.
