Prepping is great to pass the time, but only if you know how to use what ya got. I went and did some practicing (I call fun). We went out into the hills about 30 miles out of town and did some hiking, I did not bring my B.O.B. but I did carry with my my bag that I have in the truck with odds and ends. One big thing I learned today Ammo is HEAVY.

Me and my Cousin went Whistle pig shooting. Hiked about 5 or 6 miles in the hills. in my truck bag I have just a few basics but I did load it down with a few hundred rounds of 9mm 7.62x39 and 12 Gage. Let me say that got heavy quick. Anyone with grand dilutions of Bugging out with 1000's of rounds its just not realistic on foot. I had less than 300 round in the bag and it was work.

Now for the fun......

One of the other big take away's is I learned I do not like the backpack I have stashed in the truck. the shoulder straps just would not adjust to a comfortable position. That made the weight shift to my lower back. would have not enjoyed learning that in a true SHTF. Just goes to show that you really need to get out and use your stuff.

I know 22 is a much lighter load but out where I live it is just not going to stop anything that could seriously harm us. just a few months ago there was a mountain Lion that came into town and was less than half a mile from my house. If we had to get out of dodge and head to the hills I want to have something that's going to stop a animal of that size. We live in Bear country also and a 22 is just not going to cut it.
