Bov contents

So since right now i am at a stalemate with my motor home search, i figured id at least work on a list of things that i would get for my truck to make it a more long term bov. Keep in mind. Ts a ford ranger, so space is very limited.


Starters, a camper shell. This is a must in my book for a long term shelter, and keeps preps in truck secure and out of the elements.


Next... Two 7 gallon water jugs. Give me and the woman a week of water. Two cots and sleeping bags. Blankets to go over the water jugs in day to daysituations, for warmth in bug outs.


Our bobs, of course.


I was thinking of a tote or duffell bag that has extra food, meds, first aid kit in it. And a second tote with oil lamps, extra lamp oil, and wicks. This last set can be kept in the cab for spaces sake.


I already have a decent tool kit with which i can fix most small problems that would occur. And jumper cables. These are also in the cab, back seat. I need to get an air comprssor and a tire patching kit...


Anything else im forgetting? Just wanted something to mull over for a bit.

Sounds good. It'd suprise you what I have in my truck tool box. Sounds like you're getting there.

If you're keeping things in the back of the truck, if I may, I'd suggest making it look as though

you're taking off the trash. The bed covers/shells are easy to get into.

    • This is a great inspiring article. I am pretty much pleased with your good work. You put really very helpful information.
    • 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. 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: 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.
