How about those life pens or whatever? $25 and I thought they filter out everything, can drink out of a puddle in the middle of a swamp

The idea is ultimately not to use them and just to be prepared when shit really hits the fan.

So I think no matter what you choose to put in the bag, it's all about portability and price. You wouldn't want to drop a fortune into something you might never ever use. Furthermore, it's about survival. So as long as the items could maintain our silly life a bit longer, it doesn't matter how it works or how well it works, because after all, we'd be making great compromises by then.

In my case, I think except the gold coin (which I bought before mainly for investment/bragging) and cash, I spent less than $150 total on the bag as most of the stuff were purchased on sale as toys or recycled stuff that I no longer need (Leatherman multi-tool for example)

This thread reminded me that I left my sharpening stone and honing oil on a rock in the middle of nowhere Manitoba, so I went in to replace it at Cabela's and walked out with this as well:



SOG 3-piece field kit including a hand axe, folding saw, and mini trench-tool. They had it on sale for almost 50% off, got it and the stone/oil for under $100! Stone/oil should be a staple of anyone's kit, they're cheap and keep any/all your blades sharp. And one stone and oil will last you years.

I admit, I had a very different interpretation on what the thread-title was all about. I thought it was gonna be a spare bag you keep in your car for when you need to puke or shit in while on the road. At any rate, I keep three plastic bags in my glove box from London Drugs.

I actually do have a small bag incase I need to jet though. I keep a wind-up flashlight/transistor radio combo, multitool, nitrile gloves, packs of kleenex, wool socks and a change of clothes and a reflective heat blanket as well as a fire-starter. Nothing major like freeze-dried foods or emergency water though.

This thread makes me think twice and maybe I should have a personal filter and face masks just in case.

i've got a small bag with a FA kit, those shiny blankets, collapsible water containers, some gloves, a flashlight, some batteries, fire starter, couple of nammer jammer night market knives, matches and that's all i can rmbr off the top of my head

i should plan for different go bags

the ultimate go bag when the world is about to end will essentially be a sack of blow, a bag of ecstasy, some shrooms, a pound of my favorite bud, a bottle of my favorite whisky. And fuck it, might as well put some heroin in there to see what the fuss is about.

With a sat phone do you have to pay a monthly connection fee or is it usage based?

I believe in multiple go bags. The ones in my cars have different contents than the ones for major disasters (usually a lot lighter). Also for those who rely only on the car ones, things get cooked in cars (so it is important to check things like gloves etc, since they degrade in heat). Also realise your vehicle might not be accessible when things happen.. crushed underneath debris etc. Tailor your bags, eg my SUVs have tow staps and buckles. My cars don't. Get those military spec modular packs, so you can swap in and out.

I suggest pin a packing list with expiry dates and last check date on each pack. Also pack a few silver & gold coins and some cash just in case. Also have your copy of IDs at least in freezer bags, seal it in sous vid bags or better laminate plastics.

Don't forget things like garbage bags and toilet paper.

I think all Sat phone companies have prepaid and post paid.. however for prepaid you don't usually don't get a free phone and the cards expire after 6months - a year, I would budget about $600 every year for a standby. After 2 - 3 years I think the costs balances out. I personally like Inmarsat over Iridium.

It really depends, if you are in an urban area like Vancouver, the local cell network will probably be overwhelmed rather than total disconnection.
