echo2 A singular bag....no....but proper gear and supplies....yup.

I do keep a 3 day backpack in there with some stuff....but I have a separate duffel for cold weather gear and spare boots.

The weapon(s) migrates with me, but a box of ammo stays in vehicle. it is cycled for range activities...so I don't generally worry about temp swings. I did have an issue with small bottle of oil in my Otis cleaning kit that leaked.....now the oil is in a metal dual o-ring bottle.

I have a small soft side cooler with a few protein bars and Datrex 3600 packs.....and a few bags of water....a couple MREs broke down.



In the pack....lots of goodies...knife and sharpener...trioxane stove....compass and map book....monocular....fire stuffs....lights and batts.....glo-sticks....SOL bag...MSR water filter in a stainless nalgene...cordage....portable weather/am/fm radio....handheld 2 way and batts....some other stuffs....

But there is also a full tool kit....prybars....shovels...100ft rope and gear....fire ext...GPS...chain....strap....need new come along........etc



Be Prepared....

Senior Chief I have the MOLLE rig on my tailgate. I keep a trauma bag, another bag with duct tape, zip ties, batteries, etc., and a Gerber sheath knife. Any time I'm in the Jeep the Springfield XD is there as well..

JerryOnly Re-reading the name of the thread I don't really have a BOB in my jeep. I have a BOB in the hall closet and a bug in box in the same closet. The most I have in the jeep is an emergency kit including survival items, small amount of food and water. (My prior list earlier in this thread) because of my soft top a small duffle bag fits all items in the "secret" compartment in the back of the JK. If I leave a large bug out bag in the jeep I am sure it would be stollen with a quickness.

TexasJeepGirl Interesting thread! My husband and I are not huge preppers, but we do think having a BOB in each of our Jeeps is a good idea. Probably our dual military experience that spurs our interest in general survival gear, and outfitting our Jeeps. He has completed SERE C as well, and man does he know some good tricks in the field! Of all the military schools out there, that one might be the most legit.

I have a hard time including a firearm in a bag for the Jeep since I have a soft top and would hate to have it jacked. I might have to purchase another pistol for that purpose... one that I wouldn't miss I suppose.

Another thing that most people miss are BARTER items. Carry a couple packs of smokes, for instance. Lightweight, doesn't take up much space.

Mines a little picky, It dosen't like the remington bulk goldies. it eats up just about everything eles. but .22's are so cheap, it dosen't hurt too bad to pay a little extra for better quality. I buy in bulk so that helps.

What my auto's don't like, my son blasts through with his Rossi. Can't keep that kid in ammo.

But having a castle can be a great plan too. You can't know what the scenerio will be before it happens, and Jeeps only hold so much.

BlueRidgeYJ Fair enough, and to each his own.

I entirely agree that the most important thing to carry is knowledge. Without it, you cannot survive in the woods, at least not round here. I also agree preparing for an overnight venture is pretty pointless, too.

Btw, I grew up in the woods of North GA and live "in" a town of < 500 now, and just a few miles from the Blue Ridge peak line (AppTrail). But again, to each his own. Have a plan, know your plan. That puts you 5 steps on the rest

I was thinking there had to be some logic in there somewhere
11-29-2012 09:59 AM
DRoberts no offense taken, my kit varies quite a bit from most peoples idea of "prep". my kit is fashioned with the idea of long.. long term survival. i'll be chowing down on a nice brisket while you city boys are rationing your last few crumbs of protein bars

my ghillie suit (custom made by myself) provides a means of food and un-matched defensive ability in woodland environments. fish are easily cooked in water with the mess kit, and the fat from the cooking process is retained in the water which is consumed as well. toss in a bit of underbark pine scrapings and you get a full meal of meat and citrus. you don't need a garlic buttered aluminum foil cooked meal to provide nutrients to yourself. you would eventually run out of foil, so there's no point in taking it. spices are an un-needed luxury. if its not reusable i tend not to be very interested in it. the beans(beans are very high in protein and "pork & beans" variety has a crap load of sugar in the sauce) and water are not meant to be used at all, 1 ration of emergency reserve. all food and water can be obtained, none of it needs to be packed really. all you need is fire & a GI 2 piece mess kit and you can feed & hydrate yourself for the rest of your life. guns run out of bullets, but arrows are easily maintained & replenished. a good katana is an excellent & devastating CQB defensive weapon. it is not a toy or wall ornament, it is a tool to be respected and valued. a good bow is a fantastic reusable weapon. the knives and cutting utensils are used in big game meat processing. Nothing in my kit is "mall ninja". everything has a specific purpose. you need a good gut hook skinning knife and bone saw to field dress a deer. as for cordage, the only thing I'm going to need a rope for is dragging my kills back to camp, and i have that on my list.

as for the first aid kit, i have what i need to stitch something up and disinfect. i don't need a band-aid for every little boo boo i get.

i am an avid spot & stalk bow hunter (small & big game). As for the sneaky and great shot, yes on both counts.

i can live quite comfortably for a very long time with the equipment i carry, and i can kill anyone who messes with me in the process quite effectively.

realistically i could cross off everything but my ghillie, 1 knife & my bow & be fine, but i like being warm at night & sleeping comfortably. i like brushing my teeth and wiping my ass after i take a dump. a few extras dont hurt as long as you have room.

i'll admit that a lot of this might seem foreign or even uncivilized to non-hunters & non-wilderness survival buffs, and for that it can be seen as far-reaching or so out of the ordinary as to be unrealistic.. my advice for those folks - build yourself some strong hunting/fishing/gathering skillsets if you are serious about eotw/shtf prep. a bug out bag stuffed full of 9mm clips, power bars and sun tan lotion is not prioritized correctly. gear is great, but knowledge is what saves you.
11-28-2012 07:43 PM
BlueRidgeYJ I really don't mean to pick on ya man, perhaps we have some miscomunication.

That just sounds really mall ninja, seeing as how you have a katana, kabar, skinning knife, filet knife, bone saw w/ gut hook, and machette, yet no cordage. Hope you are really sneaky or a great shot, cause you ain't settin dental floss snares. An epipen for self performed advanced medical traumas without mention of a trauma kit, or first aid kit. If ya think you are gonna get shot, might want to carry some tampons too (or at least some 5x9 abd pads). 1L of water sounds great, but is half what you want to carry at least. All that fishing gear, no aluminum foil to wrap meat and shove it into a small coal fire? A can of heavy wet beans, yet no sugary jello packets or protein bars?

I mean, it sounds really close to logical, but not at the same time.

the epi is not there to counter an allergic reaction, it has very effective combative & stimulant-of-last-resort uses.

if you need to perform life saving first aid on yourself, such as pinching off a severed femoral artery, setting a broken bone or digging out a bullet, you'll want to epi yourself to keep from passing out during the process. if you have significant blood loss & feel yourself getting light headed the epi can temporarily boost blood pressure to keep you conscious while you render aid as well.

sonofabeach duct tape, rope, bungy cords and zip ties. Oh wait.. that's my kidnap bag...LoL!

One thing I wanted ever since seeing One Car Too Far in the jungle was a machete for the Jeep.
Picked one up the other day.
I still need to work on my Oh Sh!t bag. I like that better than Bug Out.
