Re: Bug Out Bag Ideas
For the best Bug Out Bag Ideas, the next time time ya have a couple days off, bug out in accordance to your plan for about 24-48hrs.
As far as rope, I keep 550 cord in my bag. (Nothing crazy like rappel gear dangling off; as harmless looking as possible.) And weight...2 pounds gets heavy after a while, especially if you're hurt, sick, tired, dehydrated, or having to assist a weaker person. Weight is an enemy and I make him as small as possible.
Consider some survival gear to be stashed/cached in primary and alternate refuge/hide locations or along your routes. Even in an urban area, renting a small outdoor storage cage in a low security storage lot can work.
Never say die!
