That is so bad....

I have to agree with others, where are you going if there is a terrorist attack?

Granted if you live and/or work in NYC, DC or some major US city it is good to have a GHB and a BOB. I was watching a few history channel shows on 9/11, and if I worked in NYC that day I would want a dust mask, some bottled water, some basic "eat on the move" food, first aid kit, good walking shoes, extra money, a multitool, a flashlight, and something like OC spray (hey its NYC, can't have a gun or good knife) to defend my self. Throw it all in a basic school backpack, and that is all I would need.

People get too wrapped up on Mad Max wartime manuvers. You can't walk out the door and march down the street with a deer rifle slung over your shoulder when terrorist attack a nearby oil refinery. Eat on the go food, water, first aid, good walking shoes, poncho for rain protection and basic shelter, lighter or other fire starting equipment, decreet protection (handgun, knife etc.) is all you really need in a BOB.


Also as someone who was in the Army and who is still an avid hiker and camper, I laugh at the BOB and GHB people make up. Looks great on Paper, but put the stuff together and "hike" 10 miles with it. How is carrying 50lb of crap feeling? Can you move fast if you had to? Is your tactical molle backpack comfortable carrying heavy weigh, or even better, is it falling apart after the first mile?

Could have taken all that surplus and put some really nice security in....but no. One lame missle, two wars against non-terrorists, so much finacial crime there aren't enough jails for all the bad dudes, and bailing out junk @$$ US cars, and a bogus health bill that no one knows what or if it will do anything?

Honestly, if I'm a terrorist, I'm sitting down, watching the Pittsburg / Ravens game and letting you all Eff yourselves into oblivion. I don't need to help.
Right on! It is now 9/12. So what is in your 9/12 BOB? Or 9/13 or ???

The number one killer in this country is still Heart attacks, two is Cancer and three is Strokes. Way down the list after car crashes and homicides is a terrorist event. You're preparing for the wrong thing that will kill you.

Great point! Maybe we should all start working out and eating better. When I first got into guns I began buying prepping gear. I guess I'm over it now.

Dave - NEVER a bad idea to go over the gear on certain days...

What have you done to bag since the original post?

I haven't been here in a year and I see a thread I posted on way before then near the top of the page...

Hopping place.

Glad you are preparing for what you think is an issue, most people just sit back and worry or assume someone else will take care of them.

Interestingly, after 9-11 I checked the boards and everyone wondered what happened with all the bug out plans. Seems that everyone was so prepared to bug out but when the time came, no one bugged out. They all stood in place at home.

Fortunately I don't have a need to change my plans at all. I already carry the items for 9/11 on any day of the year. I don't see a high probability of an incident this year. We already have a POTUS that's working to support AQ in Syria. They've got their man in the White House. Why risk spoiling all that come from that?

Who would have bugged out/why?

Safest thing to do is go to the million Muslim march. Walk around and chant slogans. Hide in plain sight. They'll never think of looking for you there.

Because back then the whole preparedness movement was still in it's infancy so to speak. Everyone's idea was to bug out in case something happened. Terrorism was still a far thought in those days and only a few cared who Al Qaeda was. Most preppers in that time were more prepped for our own government and the UN since they still had the after taste of Bill Clinton.

Like I said, back in those days the idea for those into preparedness was to bug out. So when 9-11 happened everyone wondered why no one bugged out. No one bugged out because there was no need to. Lessons learned over time.

I'll agree that people are much more aware of preparedness since 9/11/01. However I would disagree on the other points.

Prior to 9/11, I was working on preps. Back then and now, I find 'bugging out' to be a high risk option that should only be used if the risks of staying outweigh the risks of leaving your home.

The reasons for preps were not the UN or Slick Willy. The reasons varied. When I was a kid, I grew up in S FL. My parents had preps that were geared toward hurricanes. When I moved off on my own, I thought it best to prepare for a variety of concerns. Terrorist threats were included in the list. We had many terrorist attacks that came before 9/11.

And on 9/11, I recall people panicking in my area & wanting to take their kids out of school. Seriously...planes are crashing into the towers in NYC and people are concerned that Nowheresville Elementary School is on the list of likely targets? Uh no. And we had zero intention of 'bugging out'. The thought never crossed our minds.
