What is that one thing everybody else's bug out bag is missing?

I'll go. Tabasco Sauce. Multivitamins.

I have been thinking of getting myself a small fishing net
Way more useful then a fishing rod to catch paranoid trout in shallow streams.

Eating a multivitamin on an empty stomach always makes me incredibly nauseous. As In, I'm doubled over breathing hard and trying not to violently vomit nauseous. Vitamin C tablets on the other hand might be good, if you aren't expecting to eat anything containing that nutrient for a while. Scurvy sucks.

Ground sheet, everybody forgets the ground sheet. You can lose a lot of body heat through ground contact.
Foot powder. Sewing kit. Bear bag. Duct tape. Clot packs. Tea tree oil. Carbon pills. Paracord.

What I don't get is all the guys who say that condoms are great for carrying water. Actually, no, they're not, have you assholes ever tried to carry a pile of water balloons? And how are we supposed to get the water out?

learn to make your own and just cary bank line, it may be time consuming but the bank line will be much more useful in the long run.

ive never tried to carry a pile of water, i figure it would be pretty hard.

tarps are some of the most uesefull things out there, but a bear bag? why not just use the 40l wet bag that was already in your pack?

Diet fatigue, half spoiled food, grubs and worms...Hot sauce can help with those things. It can also be used to temporarily blind someone, provided you can get it into their eyes.

and morale. a little hot sauce will raise everyone's spirits after a few weeks of eating foraged/hunted food with little to nothing int he way of seasoning. and yet it has no massive nutritional value, so you're not as likely to get mobbed over it as with something like a box of MREs.

i'd say books. novels. No batteries required, and reading is the only way to pass time if you're trying to stay on the low down. plus you can make notes in the margins.

A dildo could make a good surprise weapon. Think about it.

It's the apocalypse. You go to jump a guy for his supplies and he THROWS A GIGANTIC FUCKIN' DILDO AT YOU! What the fuck do you do? How do you respond to that?

This ingenious man has just bought himself at least 30 seconds to run away or start taking the offense.

Same way I would if he threw any other slightly heavy plastic object at me. It's the apocalypse, not a campy B movie comedy.

Apocalypse or not, there's something to be said for the element of surprise. Also WTF, you'd shoot him for throwing a dildo at you? When YOU were the one trying to rob HIM(presumably at gun point)? That's dumb; he might have friends nearby, and robber baron's tend to get killed sooner than later when anarchy reigns. Pick your fights, man.

People always forget food seasonings (my favorite being a maple/bacon bit/whatever mixture you can get in a little bottle that will last a month at Stop and Shop) and a journal.

Please bring a journal. Don't waste the paper. Get a nice thick journal that you can record your day-by-day experiences in. If a society is somehow established and the world rebuilds itself, that journal will make a great story for the people who find your body.

>1 year later

I said the same way I'd react if he threw any kind of heavy plastic object at me, i.e. not shooting him because that'd be over-reactive as fuck.

Here is something you haven't thought of putting in your bug out bag:

Garbage bags. Fill them with some of your dirty laundry to distort your human shape, wear two if you're a big'un. You can become ambush predator if you can just remain still and hold your breath.

Alternatively, if you somehow asphyxiate in the bag(What are you, four?) you're already in the trash anyways

You don't use it like a water bottle to carry water around with you all the time, you use it to move water from a river into a hollow in the bedrock beside the river, then you start a fire, heat up some rocks and put the hot rocks into the little pool you have created until it boils and voilà, sterile water. You can also use some cloth to make a diy charcoal filter if there are chemical contaminants in the water, and use the condom to pour water through it.

It's just a good way to move water around once in a while basically, not for carrying it long term.

Condoms! Why did nobody mention dick-sleeves? You can use em for all kinds of shit. Plus if you're fucking someone in the post apocalyptic world the last thing you want is aids or the clap.

Most military groups actually recommend putting condoms in a field kit due to how much stuff you can do with them. A little bit of rubber can go a long way.

Do you have the knowledge, tools, and time to make soap? Hell I barely have the knowledge to skin an animal.

In a total world meltdown I'm sure that skill will come in handy but for my BOB I'm just going to carry some soap.

There's something to this....but get the little hotel bar style soaps. Not liquids.


>>13394
If you want to make soap...learn to use ash. It's more readily available than animal fat.

Things people bloody never pack and should? Bog roll. Toilet paper. The number of BOB's I've seen that don't have so much as a square of the stuff is...mind-numbing.

Any reason for solid over liquid? A 4oz bottle weighs nothing and will wash more than a bar will.

And I'm not talking out of my ass here. I've tried to bring those little soaps backpacking with me and they do the same job just don't last as long(and aren't as good with dishes). I've also had a few that smelled sweet in bear country which always makes me nervous.
