Helpful chart below:

I agree that water will be the new oil, especially in States where cheap water is no longer available or getting scarce! I also agree that it falls from the sky and is everyone's "property." Therefore, it places someone in a difficult position potentially. It is why we have threads like this and concerns like we do.

For a State to regulate the "harvest" of rainwater is, in my opinion, ridiculous but governments seem to be in the business of ridiculous - NSA, IRS, gun grabbing and so many others.

I offer that only as information since my thought is that I will do "whatever it takes" to insure the safety and happiness of me, my family and those close to me.

One of my buddies that is a survival gadget junkie sent me one of these and it's actually kinda nice. I don't wear a survival bracelet thing so I slipped it on the wrist strap of my bow since my buddies still break my balls about the one time I got turned around on a blood trail through bottom land. When they see it I'm sure to get some more laughs.

My golf and modding addiction are really putting a hampering on my BOB/prepping. Finally got started though. Bought my backpack, e-tool, compass, life straw, knife, camelback blatter, and can openers. Pretty small start but it's a step in the right direction.

Including the items I already mentioned: Glock 19 (which I don't currently own), paracord, lighter, flashlight, MRE or other longer life food, clothes.... Since I'm not an expert I was going to look at what others have already done for their BOB. I know there's some good info in this thread already (just have to go back and find it again).

I was joking.

Whatever you pack, consider the utility and weight. If it only serves one use, or is more a convenience than a necessity, you can probably find a better option. Every gram counts in the end, so keep that in mind, too.

Considering the crowd, all the grams saved on other gear can be devoted to ammo.

I hear that - and for those that have seen my truck know that if "one is none, two is one and three's a spare," know that "even more is barely enough" is my motto!!....

Stay safe!!

Do you have a ham license? Are you going to get one? If not - your options are limited. I don't have one although would like to get one - just have to make it a priority.

So - if not - I like radios similar to these. Versatile, weather channel, fairly rugged....

http://www.amazon.com/Motorola-MS350...NXBJRS7BV6QN21

A good, stable and rugged radio that will fill a generic bill. You can add as many in the chain as you want - compatible with other manufacturers and I found a pair of rechargeable at Costco in a cool little bag for about $70. I have about 10 of these radios in different places - keep four in the truck and a pair in my trailer and others in BOB and such. The ones in the truck get used for convoy all the time with folks that don't have CB's -- I also have a CB in the truck and a portable for base camp use.

If you want to get fancy you can - if you are looking for radios for TEOTWAWKI or SHTF and want more tactical then look a little deeper...

http://emergencycommunicationsblog.c...tech-coolness/

These are cool radios (I have a pair) but are a little more complicated to program and you would not find others in the area that had them.

If you go ham - there are lots of places for information but this might help just to get started on basic comms.

http://graywolfsurvival.com/2716/ham...communication/

Simple, inexpensive (but not cheap) and easy to use are my benchmarks.

Stay safe & hope this helps!!

I have the bladder and put it in my Kelty bag for hiking. I got the bladder because you just put it inside out and run it in the top of the dishwasher to clean it. I was never gonna clean the bladder with a brush. I am lazy The pressurized part is pretty cool feature when sucking down water in the Arizona heat. No complaints.

I just recently bought a geigerrig. I got the tactical bag. With insulated tube. Holder and i bought the virus filter. Pretty. Nifty kit though the insulated tube has an initial bitterness the filter helps the taste as a whole. Looking foreward to above zero temps so i can hike around better
