My BOB and Vest carries everything i will need to survive with for 1 week, can be stretched out to 10 days. If I need to carry more then 10 days worth, then it is a major break down in civilization and I will start to plan for the long term by assessing my needs and depending on what the situation is, What my actions will be to accomplish those goals. Now where i live it is pretty remote and off the main roads. So I can hold for awhile in my house, before i would actually need to bug out into the wild.
Added my Kel-Tec SU16B to the bag recently. Also made another BOB, this one is little smaller but it'll work for now. Oh yeah, added my Llama .380acp and Arcus 98DAC 9mm with 3 mags and 50 loose rounds each to the bags for last resort weapons.
Need to build up the bags in the vehicles now, they have a little bit in them already but could use some reinforcement.
I have a GHB in my vehicle (and a similar one in my wife's van) which is my main bag.
