I just set up my BOB. I've been a country gal and a primitive camper my whole life, but it only recently occurred to me to get organized in case the world as we know it would end today. So...here's what I've packed so far, and unless otherwise noted all food is homemade, dehydrated and vacuum sealed.
5 cups trail mix
chicken vegetable soup mix (3 pouches) makes 4 cups each when added to water
3 (2 oz) pkgs beef jerky
10 granola fruit bars, high energy & fiber
8 pkgs welche's fruit snacks contain 100% RDA vitamin C
9 Wyler's powdered water bottle flavors
6 tea bags
3 hot choc mixes
mess kit including pan, plate, cup, bowl, spork
1 ltr stainless steel water bottle
water purification tablets
magnesium and striker
6 votive candles
altoid tin of cotton balls soaked in vaseline
2 small led flashlights
1 small mag light
extra batteries for flashlights
1 pr jeans, 2 pr socks, 2 pr underwear, 1 short sleeved t shirt, 1 long sleeved t shirt, 1 hoodie, 2 bandanas, 1 sock hat, 2 pr cold weather gloves, 1 pr work gloves, 1 pair boots, small soap, small lotion, toothbrush, small toothpaste, floss, deoderant, hand towel, small pack baby wipes, chapstick.
10X10 tarp, sleeping bag, 50' propylene line, SAK type knife, machete, multi tool, duct tape, altoids tin fishing kit and altoids tin sewing kit, 5 gal. size zip lock bags, 3 qt size zip lock bags, 3 bottles water.
any suggestions are appreciated and welcome. My idea was for the bag to get me a minimum of 3 days' worth of provisions, clothing, security and comfort. I'm probably a little heavy on food but my husband hasn't found the bag he plans to use yet, so I'm carrying a little extra food for him. :-) I know I need more water, and I'm working on getting a filter. If I can bug out in my vehicle, I'll add a tent, more water and food, my cast iron skillet and my dutch oven, axe, maul, wedge, basic tools,
