I think realistically you don't need a BOB like that. It's hard to say. But I just think it's so impractical. Like unless you live far far away from
any kind of civilization then I don't see it being realistic. Like what kind of disaster would happen where you somehow would be better off with all
that gear? I just don't see it. Maybe 3 items: 1) a good pocket knife 2) a bic lighter 3) maybe a high quality zip lock bag. As the pocket knife could
come in handy in a variety of situations and doesn't weigh you down. Same with the lighter. The zip lock bag also wouldn't weigh you down and you
could use it for a variety of things. Mainly to store a big of water, basically the equivalent of having a water bottle without it being bulky. But my
thought is with all the development, all the trash, all the stuff, everywhere and anywhere, all the people everywhere, then all that gear is so
pointless. I mean you could find most of it almost anywhere if the SHTF. Lets say something major happens, everyones' dying dead, or has bugged out.
Well that leaves tons and tons of houses and cars and businesses full of stuff so if you needed any stuff you could go and get it if for some reason
you're the lucky one that made it. I think it's wise to keep a few things in your car though. food, water, extra clothing, blankets, gas can, and some
other gear. But to be running around with a backpack full of gear is so dumb. Lets say you were lost in the woods. Well that backpack full of stuff
might help you for a little while longer. Not much though if you don't know what you're doing. It's just dead weight, and I think could actually hurt
you. If you're young and super fit it might not hinder you that much. But like I'm almost 40 so I know I would never want to carry that much weight
around. It would cause me to use up way too much calories and dehidrate you faster. I know that with those few items I mentioned I'm sure I could at
least survive until I was able to find "something", abandon house, some old junk, some trash, enough "stuff" to keep me going. I don't know I could be
wrong but the more I reason it out I think this whole BOB idea is just retarded. Having that stuff in your car maybe makes some sense. But only in
very limited situations. ahhh whatever.
I keep getting a: "your request has timed out" error if I spend even more than 30 seconds typing something when I go and try and post it".
I think something's wrong with the website....
