I have been putting this off for way to long. Now after hearing that Russia will be holding a nuclear response test with 40 million of its peoples. I went out and grabbed a few things.

I'm not the richest person in the world and I can't afford to fully stock my bag over night, but I think that I got off to a good start.
-Weather proof bag
-Compass
-Emergency candles
-Fire fuel pods
-Flint w/ striker
-Fishing string
-Rope
-Maps of the USA
-Water pure tablets
-Radio

I had bought my girl a nice first aid bag last year and that thing is fully stocked. So I told her if she keeps that bag up to date than I will have this bag for the both of us.

I am asking for some stuff that I should add to this list. I know I still need some stuff. But I wanna make sure that I'm not forgetting something that could really save my life.

Oh.... and what should I do for food? I have an i.goldburg that I do my shopping at and they have M.R.E. but is there anything better or else that I should be packing to eat?

You might think about throwing a good knife into that bag.
A space blanket too... they are cheap and take up very little room, might keep you from dying of exposure.

This is in my go bag, that I keep in my pick truck.
A compass, my side arm and ammo, spare glasses, a large swiss army knife, one rescue flare, a small emergency sleeping bag, 4 power bars, plastic pouch canteen, fishing gear packed in a medicine bottle, 2 large black trash bags, 2 cigaret lighters, a snake bite kit, a small high quality first aid kit complete with meds, 50 feet of para cord, an LED flashlight, and last but not lest two airplane bottles of rum.

The total weight is about 16 lbs. but each item has many uses.

First aid stuff like band-aids and ointment

ETA; a big garbage bag can be used as a small tent or a poncho

The rope I have is para cord, and I did't even think about duct tape (thanks), netting=good, trash bags, as well I didn't think of.

The radio I have is solar power and has a hand crank that can give a charge.

I'm thinking raman noddles?

I also have a nice machete.

I want to find a good survival book, as well as a medical/first aid book.

I was thinking about a 10x10 tarp? But the bag is for 2. I think that will do.

I wanted to also find that filter straw thing.

Instead of a tent... if you want something more than a tarp, have you looked at the new hammocks folks like the boy scouts have started using?

Amazon

To give you an idea.

I was also thinking about gas mask, or is that to far? I wouldn't know where to start looking for one of those.

I am going to get respirators, the good ones with the filters.

Its best to know the book first so you are not stuck in a survival situation while trying to learn from a book.
Stuck in the woods trying to learn to survive out of a book is dangerous.

If your worried about a nuclear response then you should add potassium iodide to your bag, stock up on it. Also look on ebay for radiation detectors, meters & Geiger counters.

a reply to: Kazber you need fire, clothes, knife and some transport. If your feet are the car, take extra socks and comfortable boots. Extra shirts also help. Just the basics. My bug out bag has also dry tinder tooth brush wire and rope. Plus there are one fanny bag inside, one leather pouch for electrons like GSM, and one medium shoulder bag for tracking and trapping big enough to hold a pukko. Good luck


P.S. Oh, forgot the most important, bring one Khukri or big Bowie with you. It does weight much, but can save your ass.

I'm a outdoors guy. I would like a book that tells me like what plants can I eat, traps, and most important first aid.
