BOV - Bug Out Vehicle (Get you to your BOL)

BIB - Bug In Bag (Similar to a BOB, but is designed to get you home - like if you are traveling)

EDC - Every Day Carry (this can be used to refer to items you always have with you: firearm, knife, mult-tool, etc.)

This one always throws me when I come across it in a post:
