    Winch, front hitch, step bars, bed extender, bed step, gull-wing toolbox, tailgate lock, security system, cb radio, etc.
    Of course, in a disaster, we plan to bug-in at home, not bug-out to elsewhere. Our chances are best at home, with everything there available to us. However, if we absolutely had to bug-out, we're pretty much ready for that too:

    1. Truck - already basically equipped for bugging out (including cb radio & bed toolbox loaded with tools, responder medical kit, rope, syphoning gear, etc).
    2. Fuel - at least two 5-gallon cans (syphoned from wife's truck, my truck nearly always three-quarters full).
    3. Vehicle bug-out bags - one each (clothing, sleeping bags, lean-to (two together makes tent), basic cooking & eating gear, survival gear, etc).
    4. Food & water - for us & dogs (food already packed (ony cycled occasionally), water constantly cycled to keep supply fresh).
    5. Firearms & ammo - only toting what we can use at any moment - two 9mm pistols (one each) & a 20-guage pump shotgun.
    6. Important papers & photos (sorry, but it's a truck with space for a bit more than five items :D).

    It all depends on how much $$$ you are willing to spend? :spy:

    RECOIL magazine did a great BOB article with just a $300 budget. They bought an old ARMY sack from their local Army/Navy store for $20, I think.

    Arc'teryx is a very good company with great quality products but they are $$$.

    All I can say is don't go cheap!! Think if you have to walk a long way with it . You also may not want it to be a straight up military style it might imply things and cause you problems. As a side note screaming hunter orange pack probably a really bad idea LOL I have seen one person with one as a B.O.B lol I almost fell over laughing well after I put my sunglasses on....

    A yacht would be nice. I wish I was on that echelon. I only work for those people. Hmmm maybe I can tag along with them. Surely they'll need someone who can fish. Lol

    On second thought maybe I'd get a gun. But something more like this.

    My bug out bag isn't really for a zombie apocalypse, more so a real emergency, or stranded situation.

    Contents are in a normal sized North Face backpack. Too big a pack will slow you down and require too much energy to hump around.

    Contents:
    Jacket
    Beanie
    Gloves
    Knife
    Matches
    Lighter
    Surefire flash light
    Rope/cord
    Bandage material

    First strike MRE x 2
    4 or 5 trail mix bars
    Vitamin packs
    Electrolyte packs
    Nalgene - full
    Plastic water bottle - full
    Water purification tablets

    I'm sure there are a couple other items in there, but that's the gist of it.

    With this I could last at least 4-5 days comfortably while I figured out my way out of the sticky situation, granted I could find a water source.

    To answer the OP's question, I'd grab the bag and my AR and shove all the ammo I could in the bag and beat feet if I had to go on foot.

    5 things - Bag, Guns, Ammo, Fuel, Truck

    Looks good! At first, I thought you wrote "rape cord" for some reason :D





    Someone did mention a "flesh light" Pretty sure that's right up in the same alley lol
