Wheels in a bugout bag, that's a first for me. Nice!

Keltec Sub 2000 - pistol caliber 4lb carbine that folds in half for a 16" pack size. Mine's a Glock 19 version, but of course takes larger Glock mags too. More power (longer barrel) and better accuracy vs 9mm pistol. Used to be a great travel gun as it qualifies as a long rifle (no CCW license required in most states) but seems to have been blacklisted by some states after Sandyhook and assault weapon law tightening.

Ultra-light camping gear (~5lb/10L)


Add clothing, gadgets, and consumables (food, water, fuel, ammo).

Here are mine.


The little one that is in the car at all times:
Small and not as useful as the other, but contains materials to build a very basic shelter, easily start fires, enough food for a few days (dried beans) and a mess kit to boil and cook them in. Also, 1 can of sterno, some para-cord, a bar of soap and 3 washcloths (also good for some filtering applications), buck knife, glow sticks, flashlight, bug spray, 2 ponchos and a bunch of other little crap. Also some tea bags (you know.... a special treat if I'm losing my mind) and a little bible. If I can't get home to get the big one and the other stuff... at least I'll have this.



People..... don't be afraid to drop 40 -120 bucks on a good knife. this might be all that saves your life some day.



The Big one:
Enough gear to build permanent shelter for 3 families with the aid of tree debris (pine branches, or whatever). Mess kit, 2 packs of cigarettes in the mess kits waterproofed, 2 more buck knifes, hatchet, hand pull chainsaw, 15 lighters, fire starting sticks, waterproof matches, dryer lint, 3 rolls of tightly compact painters plastic for wind proofing shelters, lots of paracord, nylon rope, nylon string, 5000ft of fishing line (for fishing, lashing twigs, mending clothes, etc....), duct tape (just becasue..... it fixes anything!!!!!), 4 disposable flashlights, 1 disposable lantern, 20 glow sticks, soap, washcloths, 4 full size garbage bags, asprin, naproxin sodium, sleep medication, alka seltzer, pocket knifes, whistles, compass, hammock, 4 pairs of clean new socks, electrical tape (great for making hand grips for home-made hand tools ans stuff like that), machete, binoculars, canteens of purified water (I refill them every month to keep it somewhat fresh), water purifying tablets (enough for 50 quarts so far), bandaids, antibiotic ointment, bandages, other medical stuff, a slingshot (which I've been practicing at and hope to make useful for small game if I cant get a rifle in time to get outta town), and a BUNCH of other stuff I can't remember right now, but I'm gonna be adding more soon.





Other stuff:
12 gallons of gasoline just sitting waiting for use. once a month I will put them in the car and refill them to keep the gas fresh. I figure why limit my running distance to a 25 gallon tank when I could have 10 more gallons to add to that supply. Plus it might make nice currency. who knows.


Camping Gear and dried food. I have 30 lbs of beans and 30 lbs of rice. If I run, there are others coming most likely that live pretty close to me so I figure we can get some of this stuff. Maybe not all of it but some, and if we're stuck at home for urban fun.... at least we have some food. I personally don't intend to stay at home while the world ends.
Tents, tarps, sleeping bags, cook stoves, pots, pans, cups, lanterns (oil and gas), and stuff like that in the big black tote. Would be awesome to be able to get it, but I'm not counting on it.



Final needs:
I have other needs for supplies that I'm working on, but I need to find a smart hidden spot to hide a .22 long rifle in my car (maybe behind a taillight in a quarter panel or something like that) where I could always have it in the car but not worry about anyone finding it. Then I'd have something to hunt small game with.
I have almost NO budget to work with, so the fact that I'm this far along is fairly miraculous in itself. I'm hoping to get a little bit further along, but for now I'm confident I could make it for a while if I can just mentally prepare for it.



ANYBODY ELSE WANNA SHOW THEIR PORTABLE BUG OUT CRAP!?!?!? POST NOW!
A slingshot is a very often overlooked tool that will serve very well, not only for food, but in a combat situation can be used to volley a shot into an area, as a noise distraction, to mislead your enemies as to your location.
Flat bands shoot faster, but with a slap noise. Tubes(what you have), while less powerfull, are Silent. Ever want to talk slings, need the hookup for best cheapest ammo, hit me up.

Gumby1220 Here's my little bag. It's a tactical tailor Molle operators pack. Have it set up now just for a day hike and an over night camping trip. Hammock system inside along with knife multi tool and smaller knife. Cleaning kit. Fire starter kit and a couple of compasses. A couple of books and some other nick nacks.

Not letting me add pic for some reason

I know that not all of it is the best available but with money what it is I worked within my means!

-1st Line: this would be my Range Belt (Battle Belt as many would call it). I think I have a pretty simple setup. This I use everytime I go to an outdoor range! Plus I know that with it I can comfortably survive an unexpected night out in the woods! From left to right on my belt
*Condor utility belt with Condor Gen II Padded belt
*CRKT Achi knife
*Condor Double M4/pistol mag pouches (2-25 round AR mags/4-pistol mags)
*Voodoo General gear pouch w/ simple survival kit, (matches, firestarter, paracord, 5'x8' emergency tarp/blanket, and extra ammo)
*Condor Rip away EMT kit w/ R.A.T.S. tournqet
*Galco kydex holster
*Condor I accessory pouch with leatherman tool and flashlight

-2nd line: My plate carrier/chest rig. For home defense and personal protection and additional ammo carrying ability for rifle.
*Condor Sentry vest
*front and back steel plates (being made as we speak)
*Condor open top Triple M4 magazine pouch (3 AR mags)
*Condor Admin pouch w/map pocket and radio/pistol mag pouch and 10X monocular and 2 chem sticks
*Rear grab handle
*5.11 quick release accessory straps on rear for strapping gear or rifle

-3rd line: This would be my rucksack or BOB to carry a 3-day survival load... It contains everything I need to survive and make the trip on foot to our families preplanned meeting location from work or home and to get home from work via my preplanned routes! Several weeks ago I walked/hiked my route and it took a lot longer than I expected especially when taking breaks and stopping for concealment exercises...
*40L tactical assault pack
*3 extra AR mags, 2 extra pistol mags
*extra ammo for each weapon
*100 foot 8mm climbing line
*25 ft 1'' tubular webbing (for swiss seat or rigging)
*4 carabiners (multiple uses)
*Camo netting for hideaways
*Jetboil stove with fuel
*3 days of rations
*2 liters water
*iodine tablets
*Motorola 25 mile range radio w/ear bud (my wife has one too that she keeps in her bag)
*General personal clothing including change of clothes, gloves, hat, socks, micro fleece pullover and outerwear
(will vary as seasons change)
*Headlamp
*Spare set of batteries for all electronics
(I am looking into rollup solar chargers)
*5'x8' fleece blanket
(Will change with the seasons)
*5'x8' tarp
*Field Knife
*Small repair kit
*general 1st aid kit
*toiletries
*notebook with copies of personal items
*Compass and laminated maps of my surrounding areas
Nice setup man.

We're running a bug out drill tomorrow until Tuesday.

I know what's not needed and what is, but I'm making some exceptions for my woman and children to be comfortable. Also for my woman to see/learn what is unnecessary or what can be upgraded to something lighter.

It will be a great learning experience for her. The kids are both under 3, so they'll be along for the ride and hopefully our oldest will pick up on some more stuff. He knows what strawberries and raspberries are, and can identify them (I've showed him over our walks to the BOL many times).

I'm excited to run the drill and get out there longer than our normal time out there (1 day usually).


what does the drill consist of??

Go with what works! What all do you have in there? Do you mind showing some photos?

My internet should be back online on Thursday. Apparently some ****head cut a fiber optics cable in our apartment building.

Glock_22 My BOB is similar to others here but I found it to be heavy.

I found a three wheel stroller on Craigslist. One of those that is used as a runner with bigger wheels.

I figured it has dual purpose:

1. Obviously it can carry my BOB and then some

2. When I cover it with a blanket I'm hopping people will think I have a baby/kid in there and may make people think twice about starting trouble.

My Maxpedition Gyrfalcon and M-4 waist pack came up to just over $400. Shipping, duties & taxes included.

WORTH EVERY PENNY.

I put mine through hell at work, home and out in the bush. It holds up real well!
