Hope they have farming implements there at the cabin. Turning soil by hand is a royal female dog. And start farming when you get to your position. Takes 6-8 weeks to get good production going. Stuff like nut trees and berry bushes that only need to be planted once are a nice option for permaculture.

A note on defending a fixed position. Headshots only if at all possible. You blow out legs or torsos and you'll have a crawler that can ambush you later.

Anyone have Bug Out Bags in case they have to get out of wherever they are in a hurry?

3 personal bug out bags, 1 large group bag, one bag in each vehicle, and other gear set up for easy access. Ya, I'm there.

Not for Zombie stuff, but for real world, crap hits the fan type stuff.

BOBs are for any situation really. Storm Warnings, terrorist attacks, evading the police, etc. Any time when getting away from where you are now is a good idea.

BOB's are invaluable. From time to time I go thru mine just to check it over and revise it. Sometimes if you let it sit for a while, you come back and go "why do I have this?", or " why DON'T I have this?".

PW, from reading your other posts, I think we're on the same page for alot of stuff.

Ok, I was wondering what would be good to put in a bugout bag, since I don't have one, and haven't even considered it until now. I feel so ashamed. I assume food and water are the important things, what about ammunition, clothes, things like that? I don't want to be caught with my pants down during the zombies initial attack! :aah:

It depends on the size of the bag. For a small one, I put htings like a local map, compass, waterproof matches, flint starter, bandaids, fishing tackle, a couple black trash bags( can be used with string to make a one night shelter). Small things.

A BOB is intend to ge tyou to your PREDETERMINED bug out location. There, you should either have stuff already, or have a plan to get stuff there quickly.

BOBs need basically a few things. For th bag, any hikers packframe or backpack will work. I'd advise against military one just so if it is needed in civil unrest, you look like just a hiker instead of a prepared paramilitary individual. Less attention is better in some situations.

Water
Food
Shelter
Heat
Protection
Medicine
Clothing


Water - I'd suggest a couple of bottles or a canteen, and a way to clean water you find (if you are in an area that is possible). I'd Suggest PortableAqua Iodine for germicidal treatment, PortableAqua Plus Iodine Neutralizer to kill that iodine taste, and a hand operated water filter. A clear, non-UV protective bottle is good if you'd need to use sunlight to kill bacteria. A few hours of UV exposure will purify water, though it is not my prefered method. Aldo something like a Steripen purification straw allows you to drink straight from a creek if needed. This sounds like a lot, but it's all relatively compact and very light and water is about the most important thing you'd need. I'd also suggest something with electrolytes like Gatorade packs or electrolyte pills. You will lose those hiking. And crams can kill a Bug Out quickly.

Food - Look into light, small, high kcal foods. Jerky, Granola, trail mix, candy, instant soups, Pemmican, etc. It's a good idea to pick stuff you like and will eat occasionally to rotate your BoB stock. Eat what you like, just make sure it is shelf stable. I'd avoid canned, or only pack a small amount. It is unnecessarily heavy, and weight is important.

Shelter. A tarp will work here. a small hikers pop tent will be better. I'd like to get a hammock tent personally. It's positively miniscule, but would make good shelter for a few days outdoors. Also, a sleeping bag. Makes sleeping on the ground a lot easier. And ponchos, keeps the water off of you. Just make sure that it doesn't run the water straight into your shoes. Waterproof shoes are a big plus.

Heat - Fire is king here. A flint and steel, and a torch lighter offer redundancy and variety for being able to get a fire going. Kindling, especially waterproof, is a big help. Cotton balls with Petroleum Jelly will work for that. And Tea lights are really under rated as a base to build a fire on. Also, those mylar "survival blankets" have a 90% heat retention. And they are cheap as hell too.

Protection - I wouldn't recommend keeping a firearm in the back, though ammo and mags are a good idea. If you did, a pistol is likely to be the most compact. If you have a CC permit, you should have a pistol on you anyway. If I had to suggest guns for a BOB, the Kel Tec Sub2000, Kel Tec SU16, AR7, or a good .22 LR pistol would be them. Also a good knife. Kabars are good. They will be used more as tools, but can be used as a weapon in a pinch. Ditto for hatchets and machetes.

Medicine - A SMALL basic first aid kit will do wonders. Key word small. You can get by with a snake bite kit, bandages, antiseptic, antibiotic ointment, gauze and painkillers like Ibuprofen and acetaminophen. Only a few ounces. The huge family sized ones are really overkill for a 1 man BoB.

Clothing - A change of clothes. Underwear, t-shirt, long sleeve shirt, pants, shorts socks (I'd say about 3 or 4 pairs of these, dry feet are happy feet), some comfortable shoes, a hat, and a jacket.

Misc - A Lensatic compass, and maps of the area you are in/will be in. Makes getting somewhere if the main road, or all roads for that matter, are down. And extra Cash. Makes life a lot easier. A few hundred bucks if possible. If not, as much as you can spare. Also a survival Manual and first aid manual, as long as they are small and light, will do well in a BoB.

Of course, never leave home without a phone, knife, and lighter. Worst case, those 3 will make life a lot easier if you are stuck with just those.

Not that I know anything about BoBs . . .

They have some older plows and stuff. It was a family farm up until about 10 years ago when they moved here. Now their whole family uses it as a vacation home.
All the farming stuff is still in the barn.

And clearly you don't play COD: World at War. You ALWAYS want to save a crawler for the end, so you can run around rebuilding and restocking ammo :ghillie:
My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

PW knows what he is talking about, BOB wise.

Not that I would know anything about any sort of bag like that. After all, the poo never hits the fan.

Only a deranged lunatic would have a BOB.

I think I actually have most of those things still laying around from my time in Boy Scouts (Eagle Scout). So I basically have all the elements for a BOB, just in scattered, non-organized locations. This will be remedied over the weekend.
