You know what, this is probably the best thread ever. We get to see what others have put together, and then salivate over what others did versus our own (meaning, "Holy ----, I like what they did. That is awesome!!") Fun to see what others are doing, and then, stealing ideas from others experience, or insight. If you don't like the term stealing, then instead substitute the word, "incorporating." i have seen some I would like to incorporate already (though I wont for the competition, that would be cheap cheap very cheap.) Still, fun to read. ;)

I'm a medical doctor (MD) currently completing my last year of family medicine residency. I have areas of interest in emergency medicine, obstetrics, and preventive care.

 

Very nice, thank you for specifying. I was just curious as some of your items seemed a bit advanced for the skill level of most of our forum members, no offense to them. I am sure you have some experience with people who buy full on surgical kits and things like OPAs, but have no training.

Lonster - Rick made a good suggestion, everyones got these fancy medical kits but does anyon know how to use them. I happened to be lucky, my father was a Detective in the NYPD Bomb Squad for 20 years he was trained in Emergency Preparation which rolled over to me. Ive sewn up a few of my friends over the years. real clean lines too. I shoulda been a surgeon. lol.

 

Lonster - Really cool bag, good luck with the last year of your residency man. My girl has to start hers in 9 months. She's super stressed out about it but happy to do it.

ah devildog I was waitng for someone to say something. First off I like knives. One of the oldest best tools of man. Second they don't run out of bullets. Third it is the first, most baisc, most versitle, most important tool in your BOB and I would hate to be up S&*^ creek without a paddle if my knife broke or got lost. They take up very little room so why not.

I also have several knives in my gear, but only one for each bag. I probably should have more, since I can't seem to sharpen a knife very well, no matter what I do. And I agree with you on the importance of having a good knife!

One easy and cheap way to sharpen a life is to use a little pocket sharpener by Smith's. It has a carbide and a ceramic v shape sharpener as well as a foldout rod sharpener for serrations and hooks and the thing only costs like ten bucks. I've used it for quite a while and have always had good luck with it.

I will have to look into one of those tinder, and i agree that a knife is stupid versatile. i have the one on my belt, and at least two more that would go with in an emergency. I have a Kabar i split firewood with when in Norway during a cold weather training exercise.

I would like to see the weight of everyone's bag. The easiest way so you don't have to get a fancy scale is weight your self and then weigh yourself with the bag on and with rifle in hand and everything else your lugging along. Honor system to accurately report.

    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
