    The following are things I still plan on buying to help complete the kit

    Now these items don't all fit in one bag. I have them separated by importance. The most important items are in my backpack and the others are in a shoulder bag. Happily the wife is as into this as I am so we are going shopping next weekend for a backpack and some gear for her. I will be able to spread some of this gear between the two packs and add more weaponry. And to think this all started with preparing for a hurricane. Not only do I feel like I am doing right by my family by preparing like this, but it really is fun searching for new ideas or better gear. It keeps me out of the bars on the weekend, lol. Thanks for all the comments and suggestions that are sure to come. You folks are great!!!

      I need to spread everything out and inspect for damage or expired stuff so maybe tomorrow I can take some pics. Thanks for the support. :-)

        Looks great so far, alittle heavy on the food and light on the ammo and H20 any thought yet on some type of shelter?

          I guess I should have added that I have about 500 rounds of 5.56 in 30 round mags on a chest rig to grab with my AR-15. The wife has her .22 rifle and about 2000 rounds. I also have plenty more rounds for the .45 in a shoulder bag to grab up as well. Still deciding on what direction to go on the shelter. natural shelter is not hard to come by here in Florida. Maybe a tarp or small tent for now.

            What exactly are you wanting to do with this kit? Will it be your BOB to get you home or to your resupply area, are will some of these items be kept in your car or all in your packs? Or are you planning on using your gear with no resupply? I don't want to seem like I am beating up your thread especially since I have a low post count, but there is alot of stuff I would personally get rid of and add some different items.
