    hello from il

    i completely understand and agree. i would however at this point being brand new to the prepping concept, like to have "to much" and learn a little as i go on camping trips ect what i do need more and dont need. i feel like 7 days worth of food for two people isnt a lot of food but near the right amount. and i have no problem eating it and swapping it out for newer food as time passes. as well as picking up some small condiments in the future. but i feel as me someone who as no experience at all with this, that its a semi good start or kit? is that something you concur with? i do understand i need a good fixed blade, id like to add a small tarp, waterproof lighter, another flashlight, flint, handheld chainsaw(lol the survival chainsaw, just the chain) and some duct tape and small sewing kit. and have my wife carry our clothes bag. thoughts?

    understood. well take the good with the bad then. 27lbs for a pack isnt bad when you have had to hump 60 before. im going to order it over the next couple weeks and ill report back with whats inside. quality, ect. if anyone else has any good ideas or anywhere i should look id be all ears!

    my thoughts exactly. i think it comes with a bit to much food and i can swap bags to all together save some weight. my ideal bag would be enough rations for 3 days for two people. everything else in the pack though im in love with. survival knife, extra flashlight. ammunition. and im liking where i sit.

    hello from il

    couple of quick questions if i may. im looking at this place for my food and starter bug out bag. since i will be trying survive in any situation with a spouse i figured this kit would be a fantastic start. http://www.myfoodstorage.com/survival-food-kits/deluxe-survival-kit.html thoughts on this?
