The list author says: "This BOB assumes you are wearing day clothes appropriate for the time of year and that in order to reach your bug-out location you will need to travel for no more than 3 days, you must forage some along the way. This is for a single person, although if additional individuals are to be added then some items may be shared. This list is meant to be medium weight (close to 50lbs) and as practical and cost efficient as possible. Items are listed in order from highest priority to lowest, although the pack may not be necessary if some items are worn or modified (i.e. wear all clothing, put small objects in pockets then use the tarp to hold the rest). Colors and quantities are subject to personal preference but bear in mind, bartering may be more useful than money, but have at least $1000 in small bills hidden throughout your equipment. A gun is also recommended, and a revolver at that for its simplicity. The best tool however is your mind, have a plan and a backup plan, eat and rest and stay calm in order to think clearly. And hopefully you will never have to use this kit."
