sometimes i get so involed with detail i miss the obvious thanks for planting me back down to earth i will try that at the end of the month and repost on the event.

I agree with the post of using your BOB now to find what is relevant to you and your needs.

also we never make hard copy maps of our BOL. You don't want some stranger taking your bag and heading out to your private location. Practice finding you BOL until you have everything memorized. Bottom line, put your preps in action now so you won't be at a loss when you need them in a bad situation.

Thumbs up

A first aid kit - I would decide what exactly this would be. My cut down to the bone list would be gauze, tape, antibiotic cream, ibuprofen, pepto bismol, antiseptic. Your bag, your call.

Fire starting tool - I would have at least 2. Matches, lighter? Lighter, flint? Magnifying glass? Your call.

A disaster plan including location of emergency centers, rallying points, possible evacuation routes etc - I don't give a crap about emergency centers or rallying points but mileage varies. I see you have maps listed separately so I'd scrap the whole thing.

Professional emergency literature explaining what to do in various types of disaster, studied and understood before the actual disaster but kept for reference - I'd probably cut this down to the bone but I would also drop an edible plants booklet in.

Maps and travel information - Put highlighter on your rallying points if that was a thing for you, use another colour highlighter for preferred routes, bike trails in the parklands, etc.

Standard camping equipment, including sanitation supplies - guess whether this is austere, excessive, or stupid depends on what you count as standard. I would personally be worried about weight. Especially with hundred miles to go.

Weather appropriate clothing (e.g., poncho, headwear, gloves, etc.) - I'm a light clothing packer, personally. So I would evaluate exactly what you want to be carrying 100 miles.

Bedding items such as sleeping bags and blankets - Remember weight. Blankets, plural? Would not be happening. But I don't like great big heavy bags, maybe you are built like an ox and don't care.

Enough medicine to last an extended evacuation period.

Medical records - I wouldn't care.

Pet, child, and elderly care needs.

Battery or crank operated Radio. - Crank, please, I don't like carrying batteries.
Lighting (battery or crank operated flashlight, glow sticks). - Everyone has glowsticks but they're not my thing.
Firearms and appropriate ammunition
Cash and change
Fixed-blade and folding knife
Duct Tape and rope/para-cord
Plastic tarps for shelter and water collection - Is this on top of the tents and camping equipment? You are gonna have buns of steel.
Slingshot, pellet gun, blowgun or other small game hunting equipment - Not a big thing for me. Maybe consider a .22 or .17 if it is for you. Only take what you're familiar with. Packing extra long arms in a BoB sounds like a massive pain, as does a blow gun. I would pack food instead and leave the pellet gun at the BOL personally.

Now, what jumped out at me as missing:

Water filter/purifier? Be lighter than a gallon of water per person per day, too.
Something for chopping, machete/hatchet/ax anything?
Food? Of any kind? What is up with that? Not even a candy bar...? But you're going to hunt game?
Mess kit? At least a metal cup for boiling water?

Default Upgrading

Think about upgrading some things now instead of down the road. For example, Lithium batteries don't need to be swapped out every couple of years. The charge will hold. I have a Primus Power Lighter. It will get things lit even in strong storm winds. Crank radios come in all sizes and with a lot of features. Get one that can also work as a flashlight or charge you cell phone like the Eton FR 160
