I am blown away that you guys can come in under $100.
How big is the barrel liner? Is it like a humongeous trash bag or something?
If I get motivated next week, I may do some tweaking to my rig. I have started setting up my more permanant GHB based on this kit.

+1 i like his pot hanger too...
i was going to add one to my goodwill 20oz pot and didnt do it for the photo ( forgot ) but i did do it before i packed up my poor mans bag. i didnt add wire to mine yet, i figure i could just attach some from the wire i have in the field.
you got a good poor mans BOB hachiman! i could live out of it for 3 days
BTW im taking my poor mans BOB on a hike on sunday! will post photos. im gonna cook,fish,build a fire, and whatever else my poor ass can come up with out in the sticks....will post photos of the poor mans BOB in action.
should i post it on its own thread or should i post it here? i could kinda show what my poor mans BOB can do for you out in the field. what do you guys think?

One issue I'm wrestling with is whether to go with a cheap ($10) multi-tool or a higher quality Leatherman/Gerber. I've purchased two different Christmas special multi-tool packages at Home Depot for $10 each.
Sharpening Stone $.99 Hindustani gas station (not necessary but sharpening my knives is meditative to me)
Ranger Bands (cut out of inner tube) $.25 after deducted from package
Multipliers CHINESE $2.00 Leatherman Wave $20.00 only one in kit Totals will reflect one with Chinese and one with Leatherman Wave. Both were purchased at Pawn Shops
Gerber Flashlights (2) $6.00 from Twowolvesoutdoors.com (came as package of 3 for $8.00)
Mora Clipper $10.00 Sportsmans Guide\Ragnars\Ebay

Things I'd love to add if I had money to get them:
Emergency poncho (instead of using a contractor bag)
I like the food, as it gives just shy of 6000 calories, roughly 40/40/20 fat/carb/protein, and most of it is regularly eaten. The gatorade container, once empty, can be used as a canteen to purify in, then poured into the other water bottles for storage. The FAK is a little underpowered at the moment, but I will not change it until I take some classes to learn how to use each item.
Let me know what you think. As the total suggests, I should be able to add another $13 worth of gear in here. Just if the pack can hold it.
