Re: Looking for a good backpack for bug out, is this one good...?
For bug-out, probably an external frame pack is best choice. If money is tight, check Salvation Army and Goodwill for Kelty or CampTrails. Have gotten excellent packs for under $10 at resales....

Not a whole lot of realism if you're planning to bug-out on foot; UNLESS you are going someplace in particular where there is gear, eqpt, and supplies to meet your needs. You could transport gear fairly well with a frame with a fold-down shelf.

Spend some time resaling and see what turns up. Good idea to have a couple of daypacks and maybe an internal frame pack as well. If you have a mountain bike, you could likely rig up some kind of frame to lash packs to the bike and that way push the bike with several packs mounted onboard.

If you intend to bug-out to some kind of wilderness area, maybe you should consider putting out caches and pre-positioning them, at least food & water etc to meet your needs on the trail.

A big sedan or truck, especially a full size Suburban makes a great Bug-Out vehicle since you can sleep in it. Take a set of tire chains and you can likely go anywhere.

Good luck!

don't forget your bolt cutters for pesky padlocked gates, and your rubber tubing for syphoning gas... :)

You always have good info, Lester.

I have my 4x4 Expedition for that scenario. I keep gas stored on the property.

My most extreme scenario is leaving the continent. It has to do with biblical prophecy concerning the second greater exodus, so it would be my core possessions and especially my bible and basic needs. I figured it would be best to pare it down to what I could carry on my person.

Attitude will count for a lot in the times ahead. You may have all the skills and provisions at your fingertips but if you have no courage nor determination to see it through no matter what, then you are screwed. I am not afraid to die but I'm certainly not going to sit passively and let it nab me.

an attitude of gratitude will go a very long ways in the days to come, those who think the world owes them something will soon perish

A person's attitude has a lot to do with his or her chances of survival in a disaster. Although survival kits that contain some food, water, a first-aid kit, and some means of making fire are great to have on hand, perhaps more important is having the right attitude. Here are some tips for productive ways to think that can assist you when disaster strikes.

*Stay calm and think about the next step you should take. Disasters can be overwhelming, and many people may panic and throw their hands up in distress. But thinking about the situation in terms of small increments can be helpful for getting you out of the crisis. Concentrate on the one thing you should do next, and do it.

*Believe that you can do something to make a difference in the situation. If people believe that life happens to them and they can't do anything about it, they won't do anything at all. Believe in yourself and your ability to take action, and your chances for survival are much higher.
