With the rash of posts lately, I was motivated to clean out my BOB. I've moved it from a large ALICE pac to this, from CTD:

It's a tight squeeze, but so far it's ridden more comfortably than the ALICE.

Wondering if I'm missing anything. For the sake of bandwith, I'll just do a list. Also, there's a few things (like MREs, crowbar, candles) that are house/bug-in supplies not listed. This is to be used as a 72-hr BOB. If I'm walking, I figure I'll travel about 30 miles, maximum, with it on. If I need to go farther, it'll be tossed in my car, and I'll walk when I run out of gas!

Edit: After 2 replies, I forgot to say:
I did add a FAK, forgot to mention it. Realized I need a better form of shelter! (had a tarp, took it out, haven't replaced it). Also, maybe add a trowel or shovel? And a small box of .22 in case I take the 10/22 with me.
