The Intelligent Bug Out Bag (BOB)

jgotsch
The list author says: "I've been researching bug out bags (BOB's) -- namely by looking at what is inside other people's bags. First off, the purpose of a BOB is ideally to have a single bag containing PRACTICAL items to get you through (at least) the first 72 hours of a disaster situation before help has arrived. A BOB is NOT a special ops bag, complete with night vision goggles. Those things are cool but entirely impractical. Here is a "best of" list, plus some items commonly overlooked."

"Fire.  Use it to boil water, cook, heat, and and also to help you relax.  A disposable lighter would also work just fine.  I prefer a Zippo.  If you want, you can throw in an emergency fire steel, flint striker, or water proof matches as backup.  But be smart -- try something conventional first."
