Three MRE's, box of 12 power bars. small tackle box, spool of 100 test line, cast net. two canteens, three water bottles. small sewing kit, my espite stove. and five packs of fuel. Chem light sticks, quick ties, roll of cord. a combat knife. a hundred foot of rope, two carbines. theres more but I cant think of all of it at the moment.

      speaking of gorp.....I've went on a 1.5 day hike....And was fairly broke......

      A 1/2 plastic jar of peanut butter and fill with bunch of honey and raisins....mix for high energy....I had a bag with 4 10" tortillas too.

      You could mix up the same and put in a heady duty freezer bag to save space.

      Do not forget a spoon....:)

              I've been in a similar commute for 15 years. My pack included a llit very similar to Jerry D's. I included a couple of thermal blankets and a mummy bag. I had to use it twice in winter weather never wen without. I recently included a 4pc. shakespeare durango panfish pole. I thought if necessary, I could tie a glow stick to the end and extend it for a sight signal. I teach my scouts to carry three glow sticks with lanyards. If they get lost etc they can throw one up in a tree for the same purpose.

                  That's a very good idea.

                    Good Job!!!!
                    Just curious... What did your bag weight come out to be???, sans boots of course.

                    I like the treehouse analogy,,, and you're right... These things are always a work in progress.

                    Thanks for the pics

                      83 lbs with boots and empty bladder (but w 2 liters in bottles). Sorry, I did not feel like emptying it to answer what is a better question than what I was thinking: true -- if I'm walking, I got to get my feet on first. And likely go to BDUs if I am "at work" when I decide I have get home by foot. This is much like insurance. I really hope I never need it... so far so good. I survived June 21.

                        Nice set up, but uggggg, I dont think I could do 83lbs.. Well, I know I couldnt. Is it the water that makes it so heavy? How heavy is the pack? See, I carry stuff on me in my "murse", then, I have a bag for the kids. I keep stuff in the car, such as emergency kits, blankies, and some water. Id be in deep poo if I had to hoof it with all the kids, 2 being toddlers. I couldnt carry enough water, plus them, to make it anywhere. Souldnt say that though, Im sure if I had no choice "mama bear" could kick it into high gear! Gotta improvise a little. Thanks for the post!!

                          There *might* be other things I did not mention in the bag that weigh it down. Water is 8.3 lbs per gal, so without hydration bladder, roughly 4.5 lbs of water plus bottles. The pack by itself weighs about 7 lbs.
