I don't know about that but a Camelbak pack full of Margaritas and ice is certainly one.


Of course i'm much too old to be seen on the last day, naked with a pack full of Margs. No point in adding horror to the suffering......

There seems like a lot of nudity during the apocalypse, which concerns me greatly. When I was a young man, I made the mistake of going to a nude beach in Crete and yes the people that you want to see at a nude beach are never there and the ones you would hate to ever see, well, all over the place. So, take it from a damaged man for life, a metal poker for your eyes when you find out your mom and dad have decided to go opt for the “clothing optional” end of the world.

However, we still have not bombed Iran, I think it is just a result of the escalading gas prices and the cost of moving bombs and missiles around the country. Wow, what a great plan on behalf of Iran, they made gas so expensive so we could not afford the war, crafty Iran, very crafty.

So if they have worked diligently as Fox News would lead us to believe (Fair and Balanced, if you are the US military, all hail Fox) and used the border with Mexico as a method to sneak Nukes into this country. Iran should Nuke strategic cities like Vegas, Hollywood, and Hoboken, as a result gas stations will be useless due to the rads and the lack of power but the gas trucks should littered around the country and they are usable, so 4 wheel drive and a wench? Or should I go for the convertible sports car to pick up all your naked parents that should be walking about, with the comfy socks and Cammo hats.

I would not recommend wearing ANY type of camo! Yes camo is great, it helps things blend with the environment and it looks really cool, but wearing camo in a survival type situation such as this would attract un-due attention from military or paramilitary personel and could get you shot, due to mistaken identity!
If an invading force sees a person in camo the first order of business would be shot first and to heck with questions!
I would recommend muted colors, like brown, gray, tan, some greens, black is good to an extent and tough fabric as far as clothing is concerned.

The Camo vs. Non-Camo has been discuseed previously here:



My personal opinion, I will have a "gray-man" outfit that I will wear unless I find myself in an unpopulated wilderness area, and then I will switch out to camo. Its all about blending in. A t-shirt and jeans can be camoflauge in a sense when your surrounded by people wearing the same thing. Just like camo will blend you into the forest, civvies will blend you into the general populous.

Of course a long rifle in my hands might be a dead giveaway that I'm not an average joe...need to think about that.

The gray-man vs. camo is a tough decision, and is an individual choice.

I don't see why it can't be both.

an ideal item of BoB gear for outdoor cover or shooting-hide/shelter from elements/rifle-cover would be a large multipurpose camo-pattern-print umbrella

you could carry it as part of your grey-man urban outfit, slung over the shoulder or strapped to ruksak

the canopy could fold around the stock of a pared-down rifle to enable disguised carrying in urban areas, and would double as an instant shooting camo-hide for hunting in the open and temporary shelter when the weather turns foul out in the field

the swiss can have their fiddly little army knives...what needs designing is the British Army Umbrella!

edit:

for an added use-bonus, the inside of the folding canopy could be lined with thin reflective mylar film (the kind of stuff foil survival blankets are made of) to make you practically invisible to Infra-Red or Thermal imaging if you hide under the opened umbrella

You people are misinformed. don't believe everything the media says. The Iranian people support the Shiite government in Iraq since they are Shiites as well. Don't believe Bush and his lies to spread fear and hatred throughout our hearts!

If it's the end of the world, then camo is definately outre.

You will not be surviving the end. We all know this, you will just look desperate and uninformed.

Not everyone has the body to carry off naked with any sense of dignity, in fact most do not. Although I must say I admire those who do.

So for most of us we need to think formal. After all it is a major event.

Expect heat, so the black tie and tux is not really practicle.

I suggest you think in terms of what would I wear to a Hawaiian Funeral?

Black Shorts or skirt, dress shoes, A nice white shirt or blouse, and a tie or scarf.
