    Visine, Hey maybe look into reducing your BOB clothing to include what you are wearing and one extra of pants and the sweatshirts should go if you have a sleeping bag and blanket...Also, a large piece of Mylar to wrap yourself in simply to in to keep your own heat in in times of need. I just wonder if any of us will carry our laundry very far? Not trying to be a smart A.. just thinking
    definitely due the two pair underwear and socks type stuff.

    Skyowl, will have the location in few minutes I hope the better half is working on it right now.

    Can you provide the name of this guy that made the videos? There are a lot of videos there under "Survival" and some are pretty stupid, like the two guys from ZSA.

    I've got a huge list of things that need to be included, however, there isn't enough room in my pack to carry it all. Following the lead of Mags huge list, I made up my own, and although my pack is full and heavy, it's only carrying about a 1/3 of my total list of items...and I'm continually adding to it.

    Trying now to sell off or trade my '61 Ford Falcon so I can get a motorhome or a truck and camper.

    I have a secondary bag which will contain another 6 boxes of 50rds .45ACP, compact cookware, collapsible water jug, and freeze-dried meals.

    I have a larger list than what I'm able to pack, but I believe I've covered the basic essentials in my primary pack, but will be looking at an alternate way of packing so I can at least have a few days worth of meals in my primary pack.
