They were first mentioned in post #121, but not used for.
Some folk say to blow them up and stick item into them for waterproof.

I would like you to find one of the mini PSK threads and list the other 98 items in tin.
Or you could start your own PSK thread showing/listing your kit.
Too many people poo poo on even thinking of having a mini PSK.

Or did you mean a tarp? Been mentioned.
A tent? Ditto.
Trash bag? Yep.
Painters plastic roll? Page 2?
Poncho with liner? You betcha.
Tyvek wrap?
Orange plastic tube tent?
AMK bivy sack?

Maybe you could post more than two words?
Sure would help me with what you're saying.
And I'm not trying to be harsh, just need more info.
You could have the best shelter yet and we wouldn't know what it is.

I'm loving this thread! I just read all 22 pages and made a running list as I went. I had only decided that I should have a BOB earlier today and now I have a pretty good idea of what I should be gathering. As luck would have it, being a former Boy Scout, Soldier, gun enthusiast, and lifelong camper...I think I've already got nearly everything on the list. Now the big question is how much to store here at home and how much to cache at the BOL. Great thread! Thanks to all who've contributed. My only contribution is that under the heading of money...small bills are probably more desirable. Exact change may become necessary if lack of electricity becomes an issue.

I still hadn't seen a Zippo Lighter in here... No need to have it filled in the BOB, the fuel will evaporate in two weeks. But it runs on almost anything if you're in an emergency. Kerosene, gas, alcohol, camping fuel.... Just to name a few

S&W Governor. You can load .45 for big game, .410 for small game and .410 personal protection rounds all in the same cylinder. Mine has a laser grip.

You can vaccuum seal a Zippo to keep the fluid from evaporating. You are only going to need it when you open it, and then worry about finding something to fuel it.

A good handgun, or other small firearm. Preferable concealed within the bag as opposed to mounted on it. (and ammo of course)
