    I have a Get home back I keep in my truck. Enough stuff for the 2 day hike it would take me from work to home.
    I have 3 kids and wife so bugging out would not be an easy feat.
    Plus I am a strong supporter of our 2nd amendment. Also have a Concealed Weapons Permit. So I keep a few extra mags in my bag along with extra ammo.
    Multi-Tool and decent straight bladed boot knife is a must. A heavy bladed Machete or Nice Hatchet is not a bad Idea.
    There are a lot of little things you can add but you have to be concerned about weight.
    Just make sure you have a couple life straws and water purification tablets in whatever bag you have. You can last longer with out food. But not long with out potable water.
    MREs are a good Idea. But also some of those coast guard emergency rations are not a bad Idea to have in a bag too.
    I could gone on forever on this topic. But there are a lot of good articles out there with detailed list of things to put in your kits.

    You had me at life straws! Worth their weight in gold! I agree (because obviously) about water being paramount (next to fire). I've been working on a kit for not so much bugging out, but just a daily car for excursions into the state and provincial parks. Right now I'm working on a baker's tent for longer trips, and the weight of that alone is enough to drive me mad. But it's light enough to transport via canoe.

    Rocket stoves are a great thing, you don't need to purchase fuel for it. You can burn whatever you need in it (tigs, sticks, dried leaves.....etc)

    Duct tape is good... But don't try to stick it to trees.
    It's better if you make a rope out of it by twisting it, and tying that around the tree
    People say nothing's impossible, but I do nothing everyday.

    I could see that working, but wouldn't rope at that point be worth it instead?

    I've got piles of folders, but I don't think I'd ever trust my life to one. Too many things can go wrong.
