Starting from scratch can be a pain in the ass but at least it gives you an opportunity to do some things better than last time. You have a chance to make a Better BOB. Don't let it pass you by.
Sorry, I should have clarified. I moved about two months ago, and I had been using my parents' house as storage while I got everything out of the old place and into the new one(there was a lapse of about 2 days where I was homeless due to my old lease expiring and the new one not starting up). I had assumed I had it under my bed(where it usually was), but I checked, and couldn't find it. So I had assumed(again) that it was at their place, and I had simply left it. But, it's not there. So I lost it, but have no idea where it went.
In the meantime, I made a crash one that has ramen, trail mix, CLIF bars, peanut butter, some other instant soup, and a gallon of water attached. Shelter is the biggest hole in it right now, so that's the next thing I'm buy. It will work in a pinch if SHTF, but I know what my next couple of paychecks are going to. And you're definitely right, I can start from scratch, knowing what I know now.
So yeah, I'll be posting in this a lot as i get it back in running order LOL
