Lol, okay okay guys. I SEE HOW IT IS. This is just a list of some things that some people may have forgotten about. All in one place.

And I know the army guys and vets here could make some good additions to this list.

As someone who has done thousands of miles of hikes, my top suggestion would be go as light as possible.

Carry a hack saw blade and a wood saw blade, you don't need the whole tool. A diamond rod is better than a whet stone, and lighter. Just carry a spoon, you don't need a utensil set, you also don't need qtips, deodorant or purell, just carry a small bottle of camp soap. A couple pairs of wool socks would be better than regular, you really don't want cotton for any kind of bug out clothing.

This, especially the cotton socks. Very bad always. I don't own any cotton socks. Ross for less occasionally has bamboo socks. They are good also.

I seen an Alice pack like the one in the video, for $36 bucks at the flea market today. I seen some of the online prices. Do you think it's worth it? Looked in decent shape.

There is just something about a flea market makes me not want to pay retail(surplus in this cae) prices.

My response to many threads involving bug out bags is to suggest more water (12L), more food (10-14 days), a real tent, sleeping bag, and mess kit, and a lot less junk.

I carry my overnight big game hunting pack and add a water filter and an extra 10 days of food.

problem I have with this list is it seems to be terribly heavy first off and contain a lot of unessesary items

for example why on earth are you packing lipstick ? or votive candles sure lights good to have but honestly thats a lot of weight for something that gives minimal returns and books should be in your head when SHTF not in your bag with the exception of technical reference material like maby the sf med book
its a lot of extra lbs in books

when it comes to packing your pack a minimalist view should be taken as ounces = lbs and lbs = pain

I would not be surprised if that pack is approaching 30-40 lbs
and that pack does not include the weight of clothing sleeping bag or other items you would need like water and @ 8.5lbs per gallon you need to account for that and on an extended forced march/hike I would not leave home without 6 litres of that good stuff wich is about 12lbs of water

and keep in mind you should keep your pack to around 45lbs or less
