Thank you to those that gave input on my posting for Urban Bug -Out Bags. I will look forward to sharing more on that topic at a later date.
Now, after perusing the Forum for more info on products and priorities, I find myself asking what all these abbreviations are about. Is there a Forum Glossary or am I just going to have to ask straight-out like a newby???

I heard a comedian one time say, "you never hear a guy say while laughing, 'oh, stop, I'm going to pee!'
