Sort of bug out/bug in. Got started on my Vehicle Survival Kit (that is, stuff to keep you alive in your car until rescue arrives or you can get rolling again, not to keep the car rolling necessarily but that will come later)

Containment:

1x Igloo Marine 52qt cooler
1x Clearance Cabelas brand waterproof case
2x 36 inch bungee cords

And for the inside, so far:

5x N95 respos
4x offbrand spaceblankets
4x late 2015 MREs (looking to supplement these with Datrex or related compressed food bars)
2x 1gal Crystal Geyser water with screw lids
2x Princeton Tec Fuel headlamps (already have 2, these will live in the car exclusively)
1x Swiss 70/30 wool blanket (going to vac pack this soon)
1x 3" Duck duct tape
1x Magnesium bar with striker
1x firesteel with striker
1x Storm Matches

Tempted to do a thread on it when I complete it.

I'm slowly accumulating backpacking/bug out gear (yes, a lot of it is the same).

Picked up Sea to Summit Tek Towel packs, with a large microfiber towel, washrag, and "Wilderness Wash" for $5 each. They'll be used for kayaking and camping and get tossed in bug-out bags the rest of the time.

Just ordered a Teton Sports scout 3400, Ferrocerium Flint Fire Starter, 50ft rope, D-rings(not for climbing, but for camp), WACOOL 3L (100oz) bladder, Extra water bottle holder.

No idea how to post pics from amazon, But you get the idea.

Mostly for backpacking around me, but will be turning it into a bug out bag if I like the way it feels. This is the most I have ever spent on a freaking backpack! Its only $70, but to me that's still a decent amount.

Picking up a hatchet, and paracord later. Home depot here I come!

Select the product image you want, right click on image and select "Copy Image Location"

For your forum message hit the button labeled "IMG" in the tool bar. Note that ZS limits image size to 850 pixels so if Amazon's pix are too big I search in Google Images for a more suitably sized photo by using the product name from Amazon pasted in the search bar

Paste the image link between the inserted image definition text. So that you get this

Today i received the KA-BAR BK 7 and also took possession of the Remora (BK13) neck knife...
Image

Image

The BK 7 sheath provides a secondary sheath, perfect fit for the Remora...
Image

I'm already the proud owner of a BK2 & BK9. Now with the addition of the BK 7, next stop, the Goldilocks zone...
Image

Image


Nice knifes, great usage on the BK 2. I keep my BK 9 under my Jeep driver seat as a overall utility knife.

Compliance with thread=Just bought GoRuck 10 liter bullet ruck.
I have the GR1 already, awesome bag, only bag I own hits all my need points and capacity requirements for everyday work. But needed a smaller bag for light tasks and bicycling.
Expect to see reviews up for the GR 1 and a six month review for the bullet in summer.

Just took the Pack for a 90 min hike. about a million times nicer then just a normal back pack. Still sweat my ass off. 90 degrees for 90 min, mostly uphill for the first 50. Makes for a day. Filled the water bladder to 2.5L and 2 extra bottles for the kids. Rope, etc. Was a very nice time for a spring hike. wildflowers something else!

Bought a few pairs of these hiker's zip-off legs, multi-pocket pants at CostCo. I plan to beat them up on a multiday camp trip.

The Costco pants survived the campout and looked good after going through the first wash. The pants have almost too many pockets so you have to be systematic about where you put things

Polish Mess Kit. I bought two of them.

Image

They're intended to replace the USGI mess kit that I had purchased before. It took me a while to figure out that the USGI mess kit is designed more for standing in a chow line waiting to be served, while the Polish mess kit is designed to both carry and cook food.

Now I need to pair it with a decent stove. I'm thinking a small Esbit.
