  • Bug out Tote for car

    I have a tote that I carry in the trunk and here are the items included.


    cook pan, fuel, peanut butter and jelly, coffee,creamer,sugar and my coffee press mug.



    Cat stove and fuel



    My Firesteel, emergency candles, Fire starters, paracord, fire sticks I made.


    Emergency space blanket, tool,first aid.


    Extra clothing


    Various tools I may need. My folding/lock knife, Gerber multi-tool, multi-tool pruners, Swiss army knife and of course my harmonica.


    I loved Mag's sled in his gear so I included one to put in the trunk just in case.

    There's also plenty of food about 4 to 5 days worth and water. I couldn't find the picture of it tho.
    Anyway, that's for the car in the winter. I have a pack that I can load if needed.

          That pine cone in the stove/fuel picture will work but I prefer a nice two-ply myself. :p;):D

          Good looking set up. I'm down for the PB&J but didn't see a loaf of white Wonder bread!! Just be careful of those cotton looking clothes. Natural fibers......wool=good, silk=good, cotton=no go. I see lots of great tinder but only the fire steel. Throw in a couple bic's, it ain't cheatin' or anything.

          Glad your on again!!

            +1....cotton = misery and/or death by hypothermia...plus, MOST modern cotton garments are cheaply made and will not last....
            wool = misery due to itch...but you'll live to scratch it...even if it gets wet....and even if your wool panties are made in China or Me-hi-co, they're probably still WAY tuffer than anything cotton.....

              LOL Well, the pinecone is actually for the fire. It's coated in wax. There's a roll of TP there in case you missed it. LOL
              Several mentions of clothing....will rethink this one. I'll thow in some wool and fleece. I carry a fleece blanket in the car too. Also I'm a smoker so I always have a bic or 3. :)
              Thanks for the suggestions and comments.

                I only assumed this was geared more towards a being stranded type senario VS bugging out. To that end my own priorities would be.....

                Fixxing the vehicle (I'd add in a vehicle tool kit if there is not already one in
                the vehicle.)

                Signaling (Got to reach out to sombody or at least get their attention.)

                Shelter (First level would be the clothes on your back. You have to be
                protected from the elements. In the extra clothes bundle I'd add
                better gloves, winter heagear, windproof layer and a real sleeping bag.)

                Fire (Does so much for you. My goal is several ways to make fire in any
                environment and weather period! Looks like dryer lint on the left of your
                tinder pic. Don't forget the steelwool battery trick.)


                Just a question bout your stove fuel. How many ounces of fuel is that and what kind of burn time do you get with it?

                Again, sure like the way you think........

                IMHO, YMMV..........

                  Of course Mags is a tough act to follow ;), but I will add my own input...

                  Yes it does seem aimed more at a natural disaster disaster E&E type situation rather than a survival against opposing forces (other than nature) situation.

                  I think you need some sort of camo integrated in there. Every kit I have, whether it be my civilian day hike gear, or my "against all odds" vehicle kits, have ready-to-go methods of camouflage on board. If you are basing it on that toboggan and presuming that would be used as a primary hauler, then perhaps just a sheet of burlap with some pre-spray-painted camo would suffice. Make sure to carry something to secure the burlap to the toboggan. In the snow an old white sheet from a local Salvation Army could be good for camo, customized to your terrain with black or green paint as needed.

                  For my packs, I use camouflage colored, elasticized "spare tire covers", found marked down dirt cheap at most hunting stores right after the season is over. One size seems to fit most medium to large packs. Sew on some pieces of jute to break up the silhouette, and that is my woodland scheme. In the winter, as I mentioned above, an old sheet with elasticized edge (very cheap to find at any sewing shop, and easy to sew on with a machine or by hand) and a little paint to mimic vegetation.

                    Yeah, it's more like if I end up stranded somewhere not for buggin' out. that's a different bag all together....
                    As for my fuel. I only need it for boiling water pretty much...I don't know about fuel burn times. I only know that it works. :rolleyes: I'm not really too concerned about that part. That's why there are two bottles of it. The bottles used to house my hair dye. LOL Multi-purpose...that's me!!!!! :D
                    I too, like several ways to start a fire, there are several there. I always wear a cap no matter what kind of outfit I'm wearing, a dress/skirt or just pants. Assuming I'm working of course. LOL
                    Oh yeah...what does YMMV mean?????

                      I wasn't thinking of camo with this kit. It's geared more for just if I was to get stranded for any length of time somewhere. I don't think I'd want to camo my gear or myself since I'd want to be found.
                      But I like your ideas for camo!!!
