What's in your bug out bag?
What kind of stuff do you carry in your bug out bag? Which items do you consider essential?
Assuming a bug out bag is what I have to run out the door with when I need to bug out, I have two. One is my beach bag - 3 towels, sunscreen, energy drink. My favorite bug out - weather permitting - is the beach. The other is a bag with several current books, my kindle, a writing pad, and two pens. Reading and writing over a long slow meal at a restaurant is my second-best bug-out.
I pack enough supplies for at least three days of camping outdoors, should it become necessary. Essential items I carry are those that meet the basics of survival like shelter, water, food, security, etc. For shelter I use a tent, sleeping bag, and sleeping pad. For water, a hydration bladder, bottled water, and a Nalgene bottle with water filter. For security a handgun, along with a machete, knife, and tactical flashlight. For food, a 3600 calorie emergency ration bar, instant oatmeal, granola bars and various snacks. The list goes on but the pattern remains the same, identify a need and pack accordingly.

How do you keep warm in a tent in cold weather? (whilst sleeping/resting)After all my years of camping, this still baffles me, and every night spent camping I lay cold in my sleeping bag until the morning, where I am still cold, any help?!
