Welcome shadowman01...on a side note, using proper punctuation, word/sentence structure, makes posts much easier and enjoyable to read. I quit after the first part (I'd say sentence, but the whole thing is one sentence). But, we welcome new comers and like what they have to add. On topic, I just got 10 gallons of "real gas" (premium w/ no ethanol/additives) to store for my genny. Just gotta add my "Stabil" to it now. I have a feeling this winters going to be bad...we haven't had a real strom in these parts for a good while.

I managed to finally track down a Maxpedition Bottle Carrier in 12 x 5 - they are pretty rare here in that size and damn expensive when you can find them so I was happy to get one delivered for £30. Now My Jetboil and cooking gear have a snug new home.

Just got a Maxpedition Neatfreak, and a Duluth Packs Serengeti leather mini haversack. Now I can carry a little more stuff in an easy to position bag, rather than having to bury it in my BOB.

Camelback Transformer pack and a 5 11 Rush 72 pack which I traded my ILBE for much lighter and still holds all my gear and food for extended wilderness stays and these also my inch/ bugout bags I still have room in the 5 11 rush 72! Sometimes trading stuff just works out well!

The person who got my ILBE is very happy since he wanted a military pack.

What have you bought lately? (Bug Out Version)

Post by GRPABT1 » Tue Sep 10, 2013 9:08 am

Hi I'm Josh, new to this forum and this is my first read/post. I thought I may have been a little obsessed before but now I see that I'm not alone haha. I live in Australia where it's a little harder to obtain firearms and I'm not really interested in them just yet anyway. I have however just bought a Martin saber recurve bow and plenty of gear which I plan to practice hunting pigs. I have also bought a rather large knife to accommodate that bow for hunting/fighting of zombie hordes. On top of that I'm an avid camping enthusiast with a healthy collection of gear making survival that much easier. Conveniently my house is a veritable prison with steel bars on every window and masonry block construction including a barred off front patio/BBQ area which would make for a nice place to pick off stray undead. I'm considering some armor which I will elaborate in when I get it. And I almost forgot, my baby, a custom Samurai sword (authentic usable quality). Anyway, everyone likes pics.

Actually it was 2 weekends ago I was at the gun show and the guy I buy my ammo cans from had a 40# cratering charge canister. I'd never seen one so I picked one up. Still trying to figure out what I want to do with it... lol :clap:
