hello all, this is my first post. I've been around the site for a good while, browsing and what not but I've only noticed this topic forum recently, and finally found a reason to post. I live in the middle of nowhere from many peoples' standards.... the closest town is ~10 miles and ~20 miles the other way. Being in my living situation and growing up, my dad taught me a bit about growing plants in a garden and the such, but if I were have to go mobile, or even stay put, I want to be prepared for anything. I've read a bit about these BOBs and want to get one together. There's another thread going on with a list of what he has but it seems too heavy, so I wanted to keep it at a minimum for weight. Any suggestions will help, this afternoon I'll compile a list of what I think should be needed including what is suggested. Thanks for all your help in advance.

First: I would stock up on atleast 4-6 weeks of prepackaged, canned goods- (ie canned tuna, soups, fruits and veggies). Most canned goods last anywhere from 8 months to a year. Then, buy many gallons of water to keep as storage incase you dont have a well and they shut off your water supply.
Second: Purchase @ Walmart (best prices)
