Although some of you may have seen my STOMP II Medical Pack posted over on Zombie Squad, I figured there would be those that don't get over there very often and might be interested in seeing it, so it can be viewed here in climberslaker's Official FAK Show-off Thread.

Thanks, Jim

Head hurts from looking at too much stuff. Wow. I'm intimidated and my PFAK, BOB FAK, and Bug-In FAK are going to hide under the covers for a while. Tell us when its safe to look again!

I agree with dweste. I would say it's like an entire Walgreen's in a pack but Walgreen's doesn't carry that many SKUs.

Really, how can I get you to be my neighbor?

I work as an EMT and I don't carry that much gear...

Over time I have developed good relationships and a mutual trust with my doctors, and they have an understanding of my training and appreciate my commitment to preparedness.

While the prescriptions are indeed varied, the quantities are quite limited (as they should be for personal use). Iím sure that it also helps that I always return the expired meds to them whenever asking for a new script, confirming that the meds are not being used inappropriately.

Medications:
Levaquin & Cipro are great choices, both very versatile.
The only thing that I woud do is consider an anti-parasitic ( Flagyl ) and maybe some Diflucan

Those are just a couple of things that jumped out at me, I've had a lot of experience with wilderness/travel medicine and those two drugs are extremely valuable.

Thanks a bunch, those both seem like very good additions to consider.

I agree, and that's why I carry a kit that is beyond my level of training. Once, while off-duty (LEO), I rolled up on a fresh crash scene. A nurse happened by as I took control of the scene in an attempt to avoid additional problems. She tended the injured as best she could but, had I been prepared with my current kit, she could have done much more. Fortunately, we managed to do a fair job until on-duty help arrived.

I hope you own a medical supply store.

If not, what kind of interest rate did you get on the second mortgage? :-]

That is by far the most impressive kit I've ever seen. I wouldn't have a clue of how to use most of that stuff, I would definitely say you have a kit that's better than any third world hospital. Outstanding and then some.......

A very good friend of mine is a former AF PJ, and he doesn't have this much in his car bag. I officially want Paragon on my team!

I saw a few survival items (LM, the mini bic, head lamp)- I might add a whistle, mirror, 25' or so of cordage (like 3mm accessory cord, if you can' wiggle in p-cord), and maybe a ferro rod or a sparklite. Nothing major, but just enough.

BTW, this post isn't even cable modem friendly. *laughs* Mine stalled out several times on this.
