    This is something I've always looked at, thought about, done, and then started over again. there's tons of resources on the web, but either they are pure naturalists, pure anarchist, or just plain unsuited for the average person.

    Do you guys have one? If so, what do you carry? Do you change your load according to mission criteria? (NBC (nuclear/biological/chemical) Natural (earthquake/floods)/ Other?

    You've never heard of a Bug out bag? Its basically a backpack you load with equipment should you have to leave within 5 minutes.

    Generally in mine, I keep: (for summer)
    Water purification system of some sort( usually sweetwater chlorine/ iodine tabs)
    water bottle
    space blanket
    full size knife (ka bar)
    Para rope
    Camo poncho
    boonie hat
    3 pairs of socks
    Various medicines
    Mini binoculars
    Toliet paper
    Bug spray
    Flint/magnesium/matches
    and some other stuff I cant remember.

    It should be called emergency bag. When I read the title I thought it was about a bag of bugs or something to do with bugs for fishing /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    That's a stupid name!

    Anyway, I carry all that crap on my belt, 1911, multitool, pocket knife, zippo, electrical tape, bandana, I want to get a KaBar though

    In the truck I'd have a couple gallons of water and a field butcher kit, some rope, and a 12/20 500

    If I did that in my town, they'd most certainly call the cops on me.

    but you carry electrical tape? on your belt?

    Well, belts and pockets

    Mag light, multitool, 1911, extra clips on belt

    Knife, Zippo, Playcoin, in Right Front Pocket

    Change, Clip and Cartridge when gun is unloaded for post office and work, and notes I write to myself in Left Front Pocket

    Wallet and more notes in Right Rear

    Bandana And Electrical Tape in Left Rear

    Cell Phone in left cargo, pens in right cargo

    I'd like to get a Ka Bar in a back draw setup

    Electrical tape is to me much better than duct tape, except for seam sealing an hangin posters. Is youj stretch it and wrap it toight it constricts, it makes smopoth hangles, it doesnt leave fibres, it's great for wrapping handles, and the standard electrica'l uses are good too

    My greatest day of shame was when Spickler was doing his impromptu wiring and I had none, sad sad sad sad sad

    I'd also like a cigratte case, but seeing as I smoke a pack in a month if that it's kind of impractical

    I wear the same pants for a long time, so I leave everything in the pockets cept for the 1911 and ammo

    I only wear pants to work, and thats the only place I go, I wear my shorts and cape out to the shop

    You know that coin fourwheeler mag sent with the free video? That's a playcoin

    They just sent me a bill for that video, I threw it away

    Typed in the drunken fumes style, just for you

    "If you stretch it and wrap it tight, it constricts, it makes smooth handles"

    I thought 1911's were drop safe, even in the cocked and locked state. I have DAO's, so thats not a concern for me.
