Well dang!!!! If I remember this weekend I will unload the Jeep, organize the mess, and take pics of my stash. OC and Lev are always razzing me about no room left in the Jeep so I'm sure they will be happy until I stick it all back.

Yes, lots of stuff but don't buy that car kit, or the MRE deal.
The car kit has a bunch of stuff you don't need and is way over priced.
The MRE's go for $5 to $6 at the Army surplus store here, if you have one near you check there first. if not check Ebay.
Also, the ad says minimum 5 year shelf life, Wrong, MRE's have a maximum 5 to 8 year shelf life but that's under optimum conditions. MRE's kept in the back of your Jeep where temps will fluctuate dramatically should be rotated out at the very least once a year.

Hey hardy
Not to be critiquing but i am going too because i am in that mood (we just got finished with another trianing weekend for our ground team and I have been checking packs all weekend long). first Are you a paramedic in the state of tenn? How did you get the epi do you have a perscription for it, is it EPIpen or IV injectable? and either will be worthless after a hot day or two in your jeep. also does your service still use Ipecac syrup, It has been proven many times that is not good to use because it causes more damage then good even if someone is poisoned. other then that looks good except a change of underwear because odds are if something happened for you to be in this situation and you survive you will need a change of underwear.

the epi is a epipen. I know it won't be good in the Jeep after a day or two in the hot sun. I keep it in a cool dark place before I go then grab it when i leave. The Ipecac syrup is in there b/c i never have taken it out. No my service doesn't use it. I don't plan on ever using it...I really need to take it out. I am a EMT IV in the state and I am in Paramedic school right now. I am looking for any tips in how to lighten this pack. I have a problem deciding what I "need" and what I "want". So I pack heavy and plan for the worse.
Any suggestions?
FYI. In the State of Tennessee, EPI is a EMT skill

wow thats cool, AR dosnt allow us to do anything! as for makeing it lighter, if this is for survial then drop the bvm (if this is a first respoder bag then dont) and remove the Ipecac syrup. Also depending on how many MRE's you have, you can drop or reduce the can of PB and crackers, also the trailmix (some of this stuff is in the MRE's also the proper MRE's pack about 2000-3000 cal enough to sustian you for a day). also maybe try only 2 gal of water, and check out my thread on survial tips, my next tip will be on gathering water or get some water purification tablets to collect more as you go. If your matches are a full box then get one of the niffty canisters that hold matchs and striking surface as well as a small compass on there and drop the box. also what kind of packs are these in? might have an idea for that.

I guess I didn't think about dropping the PB and crackers. I have been looking at some water purifiers but not sure which one to buy.(i am being cheap) I have some tablets. But I got sick after using them last time so I need to get some new ones. The matches are in a small water proof container. The Med Bag is a EMT Basic bag. I really need to go through and cut back on a lot of things.(I have 10 4x4s) and so on. Here are the packs.
Mine
http://www.rei.com/product/712645
Hers
http://www.rei.com/product/748184

The Med bag is seperate. I have it in the Jeep b/c I volunteer with the the county fire department, and we have a really good relationship with EMS. Plus we run a ton of calls. sometimes it's just faster to go straight there and not to the station first.

http://www.galls.com/style.html?asso...og&style=BG169

Iron duck makes a bag with backpack style straps I am looking at getting one.

You have all that in those types of bags, WOW!!! that is an expensive bag. for that price It should be very comfortable and carry every thing you want. Other then that I dont know how to lighten it any more. the thing I was thinking about was to get more of a vest or tac gear so the weight is distrubuted more evenly around the body. but honestly I dont know what is causing it to be so heavy, maybe drop some ammo round, What do you do with that much ammo anyways? thats why you carry food, and there is other ways to kill things if you have to eat other animals.

Go out and use it, take a weekend and only use what you have in your kit. Note what works, what doesn't and what you wish you had that you didn't.

A good way to reduce size and weight is to remove any unnecessary packaging and use a vacuum packer. A decent vacuum packer can reduce a roll of toilet paper to half it's normal size if you take out the cardboard roll.
It can do the same for a jogging suit and or socks n shorts for extra clothes.
I only like to have ready made food such as MRE's for the first day, it gives you time to move and establish a more convenient camp if the emergency is going to take more than a day, after that you start using dehydrated supplies such as rice or pasta or even better, mountain house meals.


I can't address your medical bag, it's been so long since my first responder training it's not funny. but if it's for your work, don't they provide you with lists of things to be packed?

I was going to post mine, but um decided a small box with a few bandaids would not really win. Thus mine is being revised.. one thing I didn't see listed was: communications: granted it might not be working, but never hurts to have it: cell phone or sat phone can be a life saver as well.
