Thread: Bug out bag

    Oh maxipads...Wow thats one I almost forgot. I can remember back in highschool one of the brutes got a severe laceration in his leg from horsing around the gym. It was bleeding really bad and pressure was not working very well. I yelled across the gym for someone to get a med kit and then the second word out of my mouth was "does anyone have any maxipads???". Honestly the looks I got were hilarious. But, sure enough one of the girls did and brought some over. They worked like a charm until the med kit was available. Better than using my dirty shirt at least. :)

    Well, I'll throw a few more pads in the pack--would hate to use them up on wounds and have only bandaids left for anything else!

    As for the food, most of the pack weight is MRE's which are nasty, but high calorie/protein. Thought I'd rotate a few of my real old ones out by having them for lunch with my 3 year old. She wouldn't eat this last one, but the cat liked it :)

    Boris e-mailed me the following site. There may be some info of interest as far as general survival/preparedness.

    I haven't read thru all of the links on what you should have, But I did note one item that seems to be missing from the lists on the posts. I think it would prove to be very valuable to have a pair of work gloves (preferably leather) to protect your hands.

    Thanks, BC. I learned the hard way that a cut or burn on your thumb or palm can render that hand almost useless! You hands are your #1 survival tool.

    Very good on the gloves, I added a pair to my pack. Would hate to use up all the bandaids on something that could so easily have been prevented! :)

    another important thing....

    having spent some time around specops guys{no, i was not one.** they taught me that the most important tool/weapon yu have is THE MIND. study and practice. work out standard procedures for things and have several back up plans and ideas in place. like my buddy Sgt. Murphy always says" no plan of attack stays intact after enemy contact." emergency prep is kind of like a combat situation or a good streetfight : always evolving. new tools, new techniques. it is up to the individual to try new things to see if the work and make sure all the stuff is there. and operating. you don't want to get into a firefight an discover that the bolt or firing pins are missing. bad juju. sorry about the rambling. did this even make any sense?
