Another nice day, cool but clear. There was a bit of overcast late in the day yesterday but otherwise the howling wind kept the sky clear. It was a little on the cool side, but I didn’t want a jacket.
Today I’m at home, hoping to catch up on some home things. I spent part of yesterday doing pickups and drop offs. Got my plumbing supplies. Got some lego for youngest’s birthday if I don’t get something else before then (I’ve got a couple of months but hey, prepper!)
While looking for something else, I came across this old comment from 2015 and decided to clean it up and put it here. The discussion started with an article about bug out bags, and EDC gear in your bug out vehicle. It was a ridiculous article that thankfully is no longer online. It did spark some good back and forth, and some froth from me…. hopefully there are some nuggets in there still… and it doesn’t have a gear list, because that is a whole internet’s worth of posts… and beyond a few critical things, the gear probably doesn’t matter as much as the person carrying it.
Still a bit disjointed, and meant as more of a memory jog, or food for thought than a finished article, but hopefully worth the time it took to read.
And while I’m an advocate for carrying just a few critical items when traveling, and acquiring the rest as needed, I am a firm believer in having as much of the stuff you think you’ll need close to hand when at home.
So keep stacking! But also organize, “curate”, and use what you’ve got.
