    Looking for Idea's for what to put in a BOB. (Bug Out Bag)

    I'm starting to put a list together for a BOB for me and my family. It's going to be a BOB/Every day use bag.

    Here is what i have so far.

    Cheap Rain ponchos x4
    Roll of duck tape
    Hand sanitizer
    hand lotion
    baby wipes
    Change of clothes for the family ( one for each person)
    Socks
    Swiss fleece sleeping bag liners x 4 ( in a vacuum sealed bag)
    Jumper cables
    Water

    Tri fold shovel (with case)
    pro fore Survival matches (About 20 or how every many i can fit into the water tight case)
    Sawvivor folding saw + extra blade.
    Jet scream whistle
    light my fire Swedish fire steel.
    Wet fire tinder
    Emergency blanket x4
    water purification tabs (40)
    Signal mirror
    OD para cord 300 to 1000ft
    9'' KA-Bar bowie knife (Survival knife)
    Hard plastic hand gun ammo case 50 rounds of 9mm ( will refill all 3 of my mags)
    Binoculars (Small compact ones)
    Elf-1 night vision scope ( hand scope)
    IR torch
    flash lights ( about 5 cheap ones)
    Batteries ( AAA,AA) 60 (30 of each)
    Two way radios ( with weather Ch)
    Solar/crank fm/am radio.
    5 military grade MRE's.
    2 packages of wet ones.
    2 packages of BIO wipes
    knife sharp
    Bug Nets x 4
    Hobo tool x 4
    Mess kits x4
    large water proof box.
    Compass
    Tarp.

    Emergency Strobe Light's x 4.
    package of 5 15'' 12 hour light sticks (green)
    Small fishing kit.

    I also have a back pack stove and water purifier. The following site has some good info.

    The Big List -- Contents
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

  4. Looking for ideas

    One item I have seen Massad Ayoob write about that I wish I could afford, but would be invaluable in a BOB is a set of Wolf Ears. He supposedly keeps a pair on the nightstand next to his weapon. Wolf Ears are electronic ear muff type hearing protectors that serve two purposes. On hte one hand, they amplify sounds around you, so you can detect possible dangers. In the event you have to fire or someone fires at you, the device damps the report of a gun down to where it does not harm your hearing or ruin your situational awareness. Just a suggestion.
    A man without a gun is a subject; a man with a gun is a citizen.
    I'll keep my freedom, my guns and my money. You can keep THE CHANGE.
    An armed society is a polite society.

    Yeah i was looking at stuff like that. i said the hell with it. As one the gas can will only last so long till i need a new one. Two I don't want to carry the gas round. I would just build a fire for cooking as the wood is free and does not run out.

    As this is a family bag i would have no need for it. If a item can not help the family it's not going in there. Two this bag would only be used out side/outside of the house. So i would have no need for that kind of gear.

    I looked through your list to make sure I didn't miss it, but it looks to me like you're missing the most important item of all: a Bible!

    Detailed maps for your area, or wherever you might go
    Map bag with lanyard
    Small regular and grease pencils
    Speed loader for magazines
    Baling wire
    Garbage bags
    Small roll of aluminum tape - good for temporary repairs to high temperature stuff, like lights or cooking equipment
    GPS or radio rescue beacon
    Repair kit for holes in tents, boots, etc
    A packable hard outer shell suit for everyone - Walmart sells these for cheap, and they're fairly well-made

    That's a good one but the wife does not believe in the whole god thing for reasons we will not get into on the forums. But that is a good thing to have.

    Map bag is a great idea, pencils great idea. Bailing wire? whats that? what would it be used for? Like for snare traps? Garbage bags for what? Tape is a nice idea. I'm trying to stay away from GPS not because i cant afford it but more so. Because it runs on Batteries and you may not always be able to find them. It's a great tool if you know how to use and read it. They also have the new ones that use Sat photos and send the photos to the unit. Hard outer shell? like what? a rain coat?

    All the one's I've seen use rechargeable batteries and plug into your vehicle.
