I think a BOB is unique to each person because some might have medications, some might have small children or pets.

There is not a "complete list", just a recommendation of what you want to take with you.

Ive been watching a lot of youtube preppers and seeing what they have in their bags, and so far (unless I just missed them), not one has said SOCKS! isnt it gang green that you can get if you hike in wet socks for long periods of time? not to mention if its cold and wet out, you might want dry socks on occasion so your toes dont freeze to the point they have to be removed.. because without dr's, your up shits creek.

The other thing for those with infants and children.. a good thing to add to their baby bugs would be pedialyte stick packs..

I have 7 bug out bags to do.. for 7 different age and genders... 3 of which are not with us, but will meet up with us.. (my daughter&boyfriend, and my step son)

As I get my list sorted and done, I will go ahead and post it here... I am just a hint OCD, so I try to be thorough in things we need and MIGHT need.. so plan on it being a large list.. LOL..

Dreams, your exactly right. Its like going on a camping trip, getting to the spot and saying "oh, I forgot...", but in this case you can't just run back to the home for your stuff.

I'll work on a spreadsheet (different formats like word, excel, text, pdf etc) where people can print it off and pin it to their bob and each time they can glance at it and check it off as they get more in it. Would that help?

In my car, I have sleeping bags and extra change of clothes and shoes/socks.

Good idea on the pedialyte stick packs also.

fyi, pedialyte is good for adults when you are dehydrated, also good for animals when they are sick, keeps them hydrated and the electrolytes can give them energy! It is a good thing for everybody to have if they can.

Like I said I would, I have made a bug out bag checklist in PDF version for anyone that wants a copy. Main location is in the "Prepper Tools" area with the rest of the tools or you can go to this link below to download it. Please feel free to distribute as well as let others know on places like youtube, yahoo questions, facebook, twitter and other places that folks are asking "what goes in a bug out bag?". They can find a printable copy here. Print this off, paste it to your fridge or put it in your bug out bag so that you can check it often to see what you are missing from your bag. Over time this pdf will be modified to add more items to fit user needs.

Recommended as a REFERENCE only. Always remember that personal preps are independent of each individual for their particular need. This also can double and serve as a hiking or camping checklist as well.

Your lists all seem good but I suggest you also add a six pack of bic lights. They work even if they get submerged, are good for about two thousand lights and only cost around five dollars.

kev72 I love your list. very comprehensive. How much does your BOB weigh? Of course the list would need to be tweaked for each person. But it has a lot of things on it that I probably wouldn't have thought of.

For the longest time I was concerned that if the S really did HTF big time, that there simply wouldn't be enough toilet paper. LOL

Then somebody brilliant made me laugh when they said to me, "If the SHTF that bad, then there would be plenty of useless paper money to wipe with!"
