Check out the DIY folder on this site. There are tons of ideas for all things paracord. Also, if you're in a sporting good store, check out the lacrosse racquet repair kits for the cordage they use to restring those racquets. The cord is about half as thick as 550 cord but is still very handy to use. I picked up quite a few rolls from a place called jimalax down in Phoenix, AZ for making keyfobs, bracelets, wrapping handles on everything. Good stuff..

the tip on the broadheads and hiking stick is a great idea and will have to add that to my bag. thanks
I've seen a walking stick with a maglight on the end of it r holding items in. They take the light part off and just use the barrel and cap at the end. Great use for a maglight that doesn't work anymore.. Also works well as a weapon to whack someone on the head with..

I carry one of those wooden handled sewing tools, usually used for sewing tarps and sails. One has a role of heavy cord inside and 4 different needles stored in the handle.

The two people I ride with have well exceeded 35mph themselves. My skateboard has a comfortable home on top of my BOB as a must have piece of equipment for urban travel, and even out in the sticks we have paved roads so it's still pretty useful.
I carry a couple of those Razor scooters in the back of my truck. Lot easier to control for us older guys.. I DO have a sweet longboard in my shop but, it's not for hiking or camping.. My scooters are a part of my Bug Out setup in the back of my truck. I also have a one speed folding Dohan bicycle in the back of my truck. Folds down nice and small. Need to put a small collapsible basket on the handlebars so I can carry stuff. I've also got a trailer for little tykes that I've customized that I can pull behind the bike as well.

I'd like to do some modifications to lighten up my scooters as they seem to weight a decent amount but, then again, that's probably best to leave as is..

+1 on the whistle and harmonica. I even have a kids "recorder" that breaks down into 3 pieces and fits in it's own case.

See you on the trail, we'll start a hobo band..

Give one of these a try. I have two or three of them, one always in my pack behind the seat in my truck.

also do you forget that in an emergency situation or if you family is flipin rich or some stuff like that, then there is always 18002655328

(I think thats what it is for 1800 collect)
Only one knife?!?! My keychain alone has 3 or 4 small knives on it such as Leatherman Micra (Best wire strippers ever). On my right hip, I always have my Leatherman Mutt along with an LED flashlight that has full power the first press, 3/4 power the 2nd, and flashing strobe the 3rd. They both ride in a Nite CLIP POCK-ITSŪ XL UTILITY HOLSTER which also has pockets for the extra bits for my Mutt, a place to hold a Sharpie, and a couple of other small pockets.

It rides on my belt and also works well for a concealed carry holster to hide on the inside of your pants, right behind the utility holster.

My Camelbak Mule had another Mutt on the part that rides up against my back as well as a small double edged Cold Steel that rides low on the pack for easier access..

[QUOTE=roro;995526]That guy was almost as loaded up as Neo from the Matrix! lol


-------------------




You can get these free from bars and places like Applebee's. I don't drink, but I have a ton of these, because my friend is a bar tender at Applebee's.

Also, plastic bags tear/rip and become holy a lot easier than a crown royal bag. Plus the Crown bags have drawstrings, which can easily be attached to your belt, held by wrapping around your wrist or whatever.

-------------------


Pen-gun. My grandfather was a machine shop worker and made a gun that is the same size as and looks just like a pen. You can wear it in a pocket protector, just like a normal pen, but when you push the button, instead of the ink coming out, it fires 1 shot. Could be useful if someone is attacking you & you didn't have access to anything else (ie, if they took away your backpack or you couldn't get to it)... Can be hidden very easily. Only down side is that it's only got 1 bullet & you would need to put gun powder and another bullet in it to reuse it. Also quite dangerous..... But pretty darn cool! As far as I know, it's the only one in existence. XD

They're quite illegal to own and/or carry as well. Some are actually made from pen flare launchers where you take a bold and drill it out on a drill press to .22 cal. Make sure the threads match that of the flare launcher..

A lot of archery hunters carry them in places like Florida where snakes are a problem. Load a .22 rat shot in it and pop the snake with it. If you hear someone coming, point the barrel at the ground and step on the other end to push it into the ground.

I've actually got several of them and even have one that uses aluminum shells that the flares fire out of. I've pondered reloading them with some light bird shot loads and capping them with a little hot wax to keep them together. They take a pistol primer in the base.

I carry mine in the flare mode so there's no suspicions that I'm carrying a .22 cal "zip gun".. The zip barrel and rounds of .22 are farther down in my pack..

For the flares I plan to reload, I'll probably use some ff black powder for the charge.

I've managed to pick up a few of those at yard sales.. Awesome for putting in your pack.. Replace the line ever year so you don't lose a meal because the line is brittle.

Maybe what's common to you is very uncommon to the next guy.

This is a great thread, take what you need, add what you can, shuffle along quietly..

Ohh yea, I added a slingshot and blowgun to my random bag items.
I've got a hollow aluminum walking staff that I think one of my blowguns might just slide right down into. I've got a shorty gun as well but, the distance isn't that great..
