Having To Leave Your Home-What will you be carrying?

Post by Keith » Tue Aug 13, 2019 12:39 pm

I don't know how serious you are about prepping & survival, after asking questions on a US forum I have come to the conclusion that it is mostly talk & no preparation. People are quick to recommend a certain firearm, or a certain water filter, or knife, but no one is prepared to say what they actually carry. Some people recommend a saw instead of a belt axe, to me this shows that little thought has gone in to sustainability & multiple use tools.

So, are you prepared to leave your home if it becomes necessary to survive, & if so, does your pack contain sustainable equipment for long term wilderness living, or does it contain mostly modern non sustainable gadgets to help you survive for a limited time only?

Can you tell us what you carry in your "bug-out" bag?

I dont ever plan on leaving, and its such difficult situation to game out.

For med it will be,
family
pets
medications
food
guns (22 for wife, 12g and 243 for me)
bikes
water
clothes

to be honest my plan would be a leisurely 1 hr ride, so I would have considered moving stuff into place earlier if given warning.

My plan is to make my moves early if given the chance
