Re: Food choices for your B.O.B.

One thing I keep in my EDC/GHB that I haven't seen on here is hardtack. I know it's a bit old-school but I always have jerky and hardtack in my bag along with various other things. Maybe it's just the pirate in me. Seriously though, it's good for quick energy should I need it but it's unappetizing ...

http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/ItemDeta ... =MOLLE-111

This is what I have and I like it a lot. It has three pockets that you can fill once you open it up. Is molle compatiable, has a carrying handle and a sling on it. The zippers are good as well. Plus its only about 20 bucks.

Re: Tarp tieing knot

Actually I was talking about the one that ties to the tree or post, the one that you can pull to make tighter. Slip knot is it? Just want to make sure.

Re: Ever practice bugging out in the dark?

That works. No doubt about it. But I need to travel ten miles every night in order to reach my BOL in 72 hours during a SHTF. The "slow but sure" method will probably only take me a couple of miles per night. That's not going to cut it. I need that night vision equipment or I'll have to be a lit ho...

Re: Ever practice bugging out in the dark?

One final thought. While hiking with my headlamp I felt very vulnerable. I could be seen for blocks by any freak who wished me ill. Since I had always planned on traveling at night in a PAW , this was a real slap in the face wake up call. There is nothing wrong with planning on traveling in the dar...

You know, its funny you said that about cherry point. I was thinking the same thing about the barracks until I ...

Re: Water woes for me and my..... Misses

This is kind of on topic. I was at the uniform store on base here and found something ive never seen before. If you have a camelback they now have a filter that fits onto it. You can just fill up the camelback from wherever while in the field and the filter automatically filters the water as you dri...

Re: Food choices for your B.O.B.

Pop tarts were mentioned. I found that unless you have them in a hard case container or some other way to protect them, there not worth the mess. Once they get a little crunched in the bag its just a big bag of crumbs.

Re: What gortex liner, socks, gloves will keep me warm when wet?

Just a thought on the Gortex and wool. In S. Korea many of the tailor shops would sew a thick wool liner that could be zippered in and out. I never did it but it always looked like a good idea.

Another way to do it is to feed them the egg shells from the eggs you get. They eat them as well.
