Anybody here have a "go bag"?

A go bag is a bag with things you'll need to survive on your own when shit hits the fan, like a natural disaster (or zombie apocalypse).

Just wondering who has one and what's in it.

My go-bag is my brain.

But seriously, no. Should probably get around to it, especially if I get back to wheeling. Once I get my own house i'll set up something.

Great idea,
the following would be essential... plus a colloidal silver kit. This should easily kill water and blood born bacteria\viruses.

The natural medicine chest and first aid kit

Strike anywhere / waterproof matches, bottled water, paracord, full-tang knife 6" blade, lighters, large candle, oatmeal bars, LED tri-color flashlight, clamped flashlight, and head light, multi-tool, axe/hatchet, medical kit (pocket mask, medical tape, needle, thimble, bandaids, dressings, alcohol, etc), and I'm sure some other things I'm forgetting. Definitely need to add a saw and would like a trench tool as well.

That's in my truck at all times in case of getting stuck somewhere in bad weather or in an accident in a remote location, or the highly unlikely case of actually needing to bug out. In that case the 870 and cases of shells come too

Car designer extraordinaire... but sticking to the subject, my spacious Previa van (and workshop) is a little shelter on its own and can do wonders if there was an earthquake.

Not a "go bag" per se, but it's my general truck bag that can be used as a go bag. It's more of a camping bag than anything. One important rule is to replace everything you use

Bag contains things like a change of clothes, extra socks, propane canister, stove, freeze dried food, fire making tools, water, water filter, paracord, fixed blade, multitool, glow sticks, flashlight, compass, toque, toilet paper, first aid kit, and a bunch of other "survival" knit knacks.

I have 3 bugout bags one at my house, my office, and my truck. my office and truck bags has enough supplies for 5 days and hopefully that will be enough to get back home so i can grab my main bag and firearms.

my list:
safety goggles (covers and seals the whole area)
nose and mouth mask (3M makes the best ones)
latex gloves.
carabiners/rope/slings
am/fm Transistor Radio
first aid
Maps/compass
multi perpose tool.
i have what i call burn box (in it has waterproof matches, alcohol cotton balls, and Potassium permanganate)
Hennessy Hammock system (great for any condition and it packs as small as a water bottle)
my trusted k-bar (i never leave home without one)
water and water filtration (MSR MiniWorks EX Water Filter)
freeze-dried food
extra clothes
and $300 cash.

people that knows what i have prepared calls me crazy but nothing wrong with being prepared. right?

I do keep a go bag... not that I want to be paranoid, but I want to be prepared.

Firstly, I'm a resident hunter, so I have an old hockey bag full of all my nice wool undergear, plus all my hunting pants, jackets, toques, etc, so essentially it's a back up back of my clothing. I've also got a bunch of spare kids clothing and stuff for the missus in there too of course.

Then when the Tsunami hit a couple years ago, I invested in one of those emergency bags full of rehydratable foods complete with a first aid kit.

Keep them both separate from the house in case of fire, collapse, etc.

Matches are less likely to go bad, and lighter fluid can evaporate over time.

Also, a big box of matches is probably going to give you more lights than a lighter would. I'd carry a flint and steel with me too, as that would last a very long time.

I keep 2 different go bags for different situations. Nothing out of ordinary and I think it's nice to know that I'm prepared in the worst case scenario.

1 - Home accident bag - self-explanatory, in case of fire, theft or whatever that prevent me accessing stuff from my place:
$500 cash+certified copy/originals of every important ID/docs (DL, passport, birth cert... etc)+a 1TB rugged HDD with all my pictures/important files, fully sealed and buried under my buddy's backyard (he has the same in my place). The stuff in it are updated every half~1year or so (mainly the HDD)

2 - Emergency bag
It's a mid-sized backpack I hang on the back of front door, basically all the craps that I bought while being fuck'd up from watching disaster movie.

Nitecore LED flashlight (more for power outage)+lightsticks
Dad's old Nikon FE+3 rolls
Epica crank radio/charger/LED light
compass
Permanent match+a small Bic lighter
Sawyer Mini water filter+3 waterbags in different sizes
Emergency blankets
First aids kit+vitamins+few bars
Leatherman multitool
1/2oz gold coin+U$300
Cert. copies of passports

I think the goggles, masks and latex gloves are good suggestions. I'd probably add them when I get the chance.

Mainly for waterproofing and durability.

A Bic lighter, even in minimum usage would probably last you a few months. A permanent match will last years (you can still easily create sparkle after fuel runs out)

not really complete but I have all this in a duffle under my bed:

-push blade/punch knife (just in case)
-police baton (just in case)
-ariix water filtration system
-bear mace
-multi tool
-passport + cash
-crank flashlight
-latex gloves
-machete
-first aid kit
-space blanket
-hand warmers
-gerber fire starter
-meal replacement powders, dry oatmeal satchels (usually change once in a while)

Better to be safe than sorry haha

after reading some of the posts I need to add hand sanitizer, iso alcohol, change of clothes, and I probably should add some vodka+canned food too (saw a lifehack video where you can make a portable stove with alcohol and empty cans)

Outside of the absolute worst case scenario, I think most people could survive a week or more with the food and goods they have on hand. As long as you have bottled water

I'd recommend just treatment tablets (Aquatabs) or iodine solution.

Simple, small, light, effective.

I'd definitely recommend against something too high-tech like a Steripen - too bulky and finicky. Maybe a pressure filtration system at most if you must.
