I don't want to sound like a consipracy nut, but I'm very causious, maybe part of me wants this to happen one day (be carefull what you wish for)

when I started hiking than bushcrafting I had to find place for all the stuff i bought/tried out and so forth.
The simple solution to me was to always pack it into my Karrimor 45 SF as if i would go out tomorrow for a hike.

So in fact if tomorrow Red Dawn would really happen (lol) and the russians would develop a very unhealty interest in Ireland I could litteraly grab that bag and be sure I have everything I need for myself and my wife in there.

How many of you do the same?

I have a bob. It is to get me from work to home, where I plan to bug in. I've gone threw it several times and changed out cloths, food, checked equipment and replaced some items.

It is a good feeling when I have completed this task. I'm as ready as I'm gonna get.

I have a bag that is three days plus. I say plus, because I have MRE's for three days, and supplies for more than that. I have pretty much enough stuff that I could attempt to walk out in the woods and just survive. Could I? I know I could last out of the bag for at least one week, but beyond that I sure hope I don't have to attempt.

I have two BOB's as well one stays in my vehicle, the other one stays at the house. the one in the vehicle is a little smaller, with emphasis on food, water, gasoline, (basically getting home) could live out of it for a good week or two. The BOB at home concentrates on actually bugging out. more equipment is added.

My primary plan is to bug IN, and I carry a personal emergency kit on my person at all times; have a small backpack in the truck to get me home. IF it gets to the point where bugging out is required I have a full pack for myself and a smaller one for my girlfriend. If driving is possible, I have a secondary duffle stuffed full of additional gear.

My plan is also to Bug In. With that in mind I have a Get Home Bag in each vehicle. My bags were built with a 3-5 day survival/trek home in mind.

My main pack stays loaded, for the simple reason its more organized, and I always know whats in it. Bug out bug in either way I have what I need in one not so little package.

Each family member has a kelty bag pre-packed. Plan is to bug in, very little reason to bug out unless there is a tornado or house fire. We keep my bag in my vehicle and my wifes bag in her car. All the basics are covered but clothes for everyone. On longer trips I throw one of our bags in as an extra to double our usable food and gear. The kids are mostly grown in size so what clothes we carry are multi-use for everyone.

For the fact I don't really hike or anything, and if anything does happen I can just go to someones house that I know (Most likely) I don't really have a Bob. I do, however have a survival kit with all the essentials, and could be considered a small Bob. I also have a survival kit in my truck, and an extra in my room. As well as a mini survival kit in each room of the house.
