          MY Bug-Out-Bag or "B.O.B."

          My, "B.O.B"...

          A "Bug-Out-Bag" is supposed to be a STAGE 1 grab and GO.... NOW!, type of bag. IN THREE MINUTES! NOTHING TAKES (3) MINUTES! Grab your bag and get out of wherever you are and go to your pre-planned destination for STAGE 2 of your disaster response. Rendevousing with family, friends, co-workers, etc.

          Your B.O.B. should never become your anchor but your emergency access to your survial and or survival storage space of supplies. (THIS is where you put the larger backpacks, food/rations, large water supply, LARGER WEAPONS, precious metals/silver/gold for trade, etc. Two or even three of these STAGE 2 places are great to have.

          Most B.O.B.s are far over-loaded with things you will never need in ANY emergency. Dump that stuff in your STAGE 2 area. Sort through all the stuff when you get away from whatever disaster or danger you were in at STAGE 1.

          Generally a B.O.B. should not have more than (3) things in it. THREE. That's it! The rest of anything else you would need is usually already on your person. Keys, broncial dialator, glasses, ID, MONEY and, well, (You already ARE leagally carrying concealed, are you not?) Then again, this is a disaster / emergency...

          Little things like carrying legal or illegal, whether or not you have a FCC license to talk over the Big Boy Radios... This all sort of goes out the window until things calm down...

          After all, this is YOUR LIFE and the lives of your families and friends at stake. If you don't see a judge and a jury... KEEP DOING WHATEVER YOU MUST DO TO SURVIVE! You can either hire or get an attorney appointed to you later. Just FOCUS, BE SAFE and SAVE WHOMEVER you can along the way to your safe spot, (STAGE 2)

          Remember this, well, as a matter of fact make a BIG sign in BIG LETTERS on your computer and print out several of these signs and post them in areas where you store your gear....

          "When disaster strikes, the time to prepare for it is GONE!"

          Don't waste time with frivilous crap in a field pack. Keep it SMALL & LIGHT, for FLIGHT! Remember: NOTHING TAKES 3 MINUTES!

          Now finally to my B.O.B. .....

          I have a CamelBak with a 3 Litre bladder (Equal to 3 canteens of water) and a compartment much like a SMALL backpack. It is a BLACK CIVILIAN VERSION so if need be, I can BLEND IN to ANY CROWD. <Hint!> You don't know WHO you will run into during your, "disaster". (Besides, black goes with everything!)

          In my CamelBak I have:

          1) A 1 quart TRAVEL BERKEY WATER FILTER. (1 Quart size) Big enough to filter water for 2-3 people.

          2) My long term MEDICATIONS

          3) My READING GLASSES, (Without them I could not R-E-A-D!)

          4) A K-BAR Combat Knife. What's Jethro (NCIS) Gibb's #1 rule? ALWAYS CARRY A KNIFE! I already do, however this one is bigger and provides much more versitility.

          5) A LENSATIC COMPASS that glows in the dark.

          6) A MAGNESIUM FIRESTARTING TOOL . One of those silver bars with flint and steel on em so you can start a fire anywhere, anytime you need to. A BIC lighter would do but what IF it happened to fail on you? How are you going to repair THAT in an emergency? I have no time for, "What IF's" I'm too busy experiencing new and exciting things happening all around me at the moment....

          7) A FRS/GMRS RADIO with FRESH BATTERIES

          OK, so I don't really need the K-BAR, COMPASS and FIRE STARTING TOOL, but the fit and I can GIT!

                  Awesome! my BOB is an Alice as well... Not the most comfortable pack but indestructable. One thing that makes these bags so much fun to put together is that you'll always be working on it. I's a never ending process of uprgading items, adding things you realize you need, removing things you realize you won't need, etc...
                  Good job! Great pics!
                  Thanks for taking the time to post!!!

                      did you try using the insert pictures feature? There's a toolbar above your post when editing it ( I think you need to go to advanced when editing a post you already made) and simply click on the picture icon which is to the right of the little globe

                        I like your map case. Can you tell us where you got it. Also, where did you get the term "shit tickets"? I haven't heard that word for a long time.

                          I have a Large ACU Molle II Rucksack with Sustainment Pouches. I bought it off of ebay for 55 bucks. I hate the ACU pattern, so I went and purchased some dark green DYE. It worked quite well. At least it doesn't glow in the dark anymore (LOL). I also bought an attachment bag for the front. I think it was on sale at sportsman guide. I put the dark green to it also. The DYE had a hard time taking to the pouch. I think it was becasue it was new. The Surplus army pack was older and a little more broken in. The Molle II ruck has 4000 cubic inches of space and 500 more with the Sustainment pouches attached to the sides. I researched for several months to find the most room for the best price and this was it.



                          The contents are pictured here. All the electronics are not kept in the bag. I keep them in a gutted microwave for potential EMP protection. If I need to move quickly, it will only take a minute or so to move them from the micro to the bag.

                            I'm five miles from an air force base so are local thrift stores always have some supplies. That's where I got my .99 cent map case. I'm always going to them to look for new gear and I've been successful. As far a the term shit tickets, you have my old man to blame for that.
                            When you have no choice, you have no fear!
