The laptop will contain thousands upon thousands of maps and an encyclopedia of edible plants and animals.
I will keep it charged with my trusty solar charger, sure it might take awhile but its worth having all that information at your disposal.
Do not underestimate modern technology.
Everything except the fishing rod fits in the bag.edit on 21-3-2011 by Segador because: (no reason given)

What you are referring to is often called a 'Go Bag' or 'Bug Out Bag', and there are lots of good examples and lists out there if you feel like googling them. I'm sitting near mine right now!
Are you realy near your 'Go Bag'? When did you make this bag and what kind of 'emergency' did you have in mind when filling it with stuff? I will most certainly Google this subject. I did not realise that many more people hhad these worries before anything will happen. Thanks for the tip.
