    Same here - unless I'm going on a long trip. Then I bring a change of clothes. I like to live dangerously.

    Not only winter supplies but does anyone have a BOB or Bug Out Bag(s) set up for the impending zombie apocalypse or other emergency situations? I'd love to know what you have in yours as anyone who has one knows how addictive it is building the perfect BOB with all the right equipment for your climate or situation.

    So I don't but I think I should these days. I have more than enough stuff to put in one, and I know what to put in my backpack to go hiking for 10 days and be fine, but I don't have one prepped and I don't have the food I would choose in the house.

    I'm changing my mind about prepping to some degree as I have been caught without power for a week at a time here. These times make me think if I had already done this and this it would be easier, but it hasn't been anything I couldn't solve after the fact (drive 3hr round trip to get a generator from my folks basically).

    I've been camping so many times with the philosophy that if you take something and don't use it, leave it out. That seems to be a poor philosophy when considering daily life (I need a generator only once a few years, but these decisions are based on if I can get by a week without one camping) and prepping a modern car.

    It seems to be an even poorer philosophy when planning for a long term hiatus from civilized support for my home.

    Take the list below - it sounded anal to me at the time. Honestly two sets of jumpers for a manual car still does. Regardless, it has more merit than I thought last year, and I think I'm sort of dumb for keeping nothing in there (I have tossed in a sleeping bag for each person when traveling in mid-winter though, which I would put at the top of that list).

    I actually think I could put together a great BOB. Just fill the sucker with bacon and a firestarter and a 2.5#cruiser double bit axe on a 26" handle. I'd throw in personal gear to stay warm &dry, and a firearm and a bunch of ammo (ideally a short barreled silenced .22 rifle that will feed shorts or LR and a 9mm sidearm). Add a water filter and bottle.

    Any additional items can easily be purchased with bacon or scavenged.

    I.e. I haven't put any real thought in to it, but I think the bacon trading would go very well.
