    Upcoming zombie apocalypse? Or is Obama the Antichrist and the Zionist military machine will oppress us to the breaking point and we'll all carry a bag o stuff and drive tacomas accross the US? Unless you're on the lam, I've never felt the need to be ready to leave it all behind and begin running...

    When my finances improve I'll like to assemble one. I'd rather be prepared for anything than have something happen and not be ready.

    I have some spare clothes, water, and basic tools in my truck. That's about as close as I am right now.

    If we can connect this to the "how many times do you wipe" thread, then how many rolls of tp do you stash in your b.o.b. would be the next question.

    At the very least people should keep some long term storage food and water. And perhaps some propane camping gear. "Better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it."

    Ok so all that stuff and you only have 3 maxi pads and 4 tampons? Ok here is how it goes..... The world is coming to an end and you load up the wife and DRAG your bag out and she says "You better dump all that crap and put some more tampons and maxipads in that bag." Don't forget the chocolate.
