    Medium sized backpack. We bought the backpacks at the same store where we bought most of the stuff that went in them. The backpacks cost about $10 each, to give you an idea.

    When I say you can grab it and go, I am not kidding at all.

    If the Kit is for just one person and not a couple, some of the items would not be shared and would have been in each of the kits.

    We did not supply the guns and ammo, each person is responsible for those items.

    What about your car kit?

    I used to keep a couple of tupperware tubs in my cars with augmented first aid kits, food concentrates, a pocketknife, matches, batteries, flashlights, candles, duct tape, work gloves, heavy twine, a couple of liters of water and such. Wife used to go nuts when we would walk through Wal-Mart and I would be picking up odds and ends for adding to the tubs. I had to change out the batteries but with kids around that is easy enough. The flashlights, batteries and bandaids came in handy a few times.
    Reality, DEAL with IT!

  8. Wife may want to know what the condoms are for.I said we don't want to start a new world order.

    Could have said, "...to decorate the new cave....." OR maybe, "...to have a water balloon fight of course...."

    Glow in the dark ones for marking trails? (Cheaper than glo-sticks)

    Keep the water out of your rifle while carrying barrel up?
    Reality, DEAL with IT!

    My bag has some basic items, but I'm not going overboard because I still want to have some trunk space. I have clothing, a flare gun, a first aid kit, batteries, cig lighters, duct tape, electrical tape, some cash, 200 rounds of ammo, some water, granola bars, a roll of TP and some random useful things like paperclips and garbage bags. I also keep a flashlight, a few knives, a maglite (beating stick size), etc in the car that I like to be able to get to without going through the bag.

    There's also a second bag that has tools, and a full-size fire extinguisher. There are two things in life that you don't want to have to look around for when you need them: a gun (or a knife) and a fire extinguisher. I try to have both nearby. The flare gun is handy, because it's multi-purpose - even if I am somehow separated from my regular one, a flare gun can be quite effective in a self-defense situation; aim for the body and it will go right through and burn a huge hole in their insides, which is a lot of bang for a single shot. This type of effect has been shown to occur in unfortunate flare gun accidents.

    Things like TP are nice to have, but take up a lot of space and aren't a necessity; you can always use a book or leaves or something. I might also get a gas mask with canisters after a while; that's always good to have. Also, I keep a supply of amino acid pills; these are primarily used by weightlifters, but along with regular vitamins, they can be useful if you have to go without real food for a while and they take up a lot less space.

  11. Wow, I have really slipped in this area. I have most of this stuff in my boat but not in a separate bag to scoot with. The freeze dried backpacking food has come in handy more than once. I also keep my seldom used vehicles full of fuel in case of emergency. The boat holds 58 gallons so that's a nice reserve. MRE's are handy but heavy and not so good.

    New resolution for me......
