I have a couple of their tactical bail-out bags (sort of like a shoulder satchel) as well. I was pleasantly surprised at what nice bags they were for the money.

I bought 2 of those when they were on sale for $10 last month, I have one set up as my pistol range bag, and may use the other as my rifle range bag. Awesome bags.

Maybe when SHTF you can head west and I'll head east and we can meet up in Oklahoma somewhere--or at least what's left of it.

Who compiled this list? I'm not saying that it's wrong, but rather looking for a new source of disaster-planning reference material.

I don't remember. I will see if I can find it again.

I don't agree with it all, but it is good for not forgetting something.

Actually the reader comments (not posted) helped too.

HOW ABOUT BUG OUT/IN ON A BUDGET?

Sure, we can buy all kinds of cool stuff if we are going to drop $1000.

What about being prepared on a budget?

Post some info and make sure to tag it "budget"

Here are some of my ideas and ideas I have come across...

*** 90 days worth of prescriptions and vitamins. *** Nothing more important or harder to get in an emergency.

1. Tuna in water in a can. Cheap, last for years, taste good and drink the water.

2. Glock field knife with surated edge. $30 and its Glock for God's sake.

3. Bic lighters and birthday cake candles for fire starting. Even empty it is free flint starter and super lightweight.

4. Ziplock bags. Can't have too many for waterproofing and storage.

5. Empty mayo and drink containers. They are already food grade and free.

6. Clorox, water, water, water, and some water. Don't forget to get the pieces to attach to your hot water heater to drain it. 50 gallons of cleaner than average water in an emergency.

7. Extra propane for your grill. Perfect example of items for survival that you can still put to use every day. I have 5 tanks. You?

8. Ramen noodles, beef stew in a can, canned fruit, Zone bars, etc. All normal food that you can buy and use and rotate.

9. LED Maglight with extra batteries. As low as $10 on sale.

10. Spend $25-$50 at the local dollar store! Amazing what you can buy in these hell holes. Pack a gun, some cash, and go nuts. First aid kits, air horns, sewing kits, utensils, heath and beauty supplies, etc. $1 each!

I would rather have cheap stuff than no stuff. Of course, buy the best for your budget of what is important to you. But (10) $1 first aid kits in 10 different places is better than a $10 first aid kit you can not get to.

JMO.

POST YOUR IDEAS!

Here is a video I found interesting...

1:30
4:00
6:00
9:00



FINALLY...

2:30 (below)
6:00 (below)



I really don't know what makes one knife $30 and another $300, but I can not imagine a field knife worth 10x as much.

JMO.

PS - Glock made military tools before guns.

What I don't understand about a lot of bug-out or survival kits (especially the budget ones) is the high priority placed on a blade sharpener. Now I understand the value of a sharpener, but most of these kits are designed for about 72 hrs. Are you expecting the blade to go dull in that time? Even in the rare occurrence that it did, worst case couldn't you use a rock or something (considering this is presumably a low probability situation)?

Again I understand its value and the concept of preparing for the worst, but it seems disproportionately high on the list for me.

I guess the idea is based on size, weight, and cost, why not?

I started to redo my main kit and its a freaking yellow Pelican 1600. lol.

I don't care that its big or heavy, I like it.

I am not going anywhere without a truck anyway.

I could not hike to freakin grocery store.

Add to your BOB: Paper backup of your cellphone contact list.

You know… it recently occurred to me that I don't have ANY of my close family/friends phone numbers memorized anymore and trying to recite their full addresses (with zip codes) would be a total lost cause.

Believe or not, I actually have to give credit to the CDC "Zombie Apocalypse" blog for helping me realize this. They suggested having info for at least one out-of-state contact on hand. Well, ALL of my family lives out of state these days. People move around and change numbers so often that I just rely on my cellphone to store contact info. I'm willing to bet I'm not the only one who has gotten a bit lazy in this regard. If I lose my phone or get injured to where I can't communicate I'd be screwed.

I don't think a simple oldschool address book was mentioned in here previously. This is just a reminder.
