LGirl,I know this has been done before but I was going through my bag and wanted to add unusual but useful items any ideas...?
Where can you find most of these and prices please?LGirl,
Try a telescopic fishing rod with an assortment of lures, weights, etc in a small EDC pouch.
Pocket Shower: NEMO Helio Pressure Shower, weighs in at 1 pound, but is a pressure type using a foot pump sprayer...cost about 90. Cheaper one is Sea to Summit Pocket Shower about 30. Gravity fed shower.
Brunton Compro Pocket Transit (a very expensive lensatic compass)
Pepper Spray on a quick release d ring that can be attached to the outside of your BOB strap, used to ward off predator animals. Ask Roninsensei on the best Pepper Spray on the market. He has a good handle on what has the best spray radius.
Garmin GPS system with color map overlay
Eton Crank Shortwave Radio
Shemaugh (Many out there, try not to get the Rothco brand, they tend to irritate your neck line).
Goal Zero Sherpa 100 charging kit...with solar panel and power pack. This one is worth its weight in gold in the field. Charges just about anything, except TV's. Weighs about 5 pounds total.
These are just a few things in the Heavy BOB
Your right, knowing the roads is good, knowing all the land, with water sources and possible cover is even better.Atlas are ok but nothing beats a good township and range maps with a topo overlay specific for the area, even without a topo overlay these maps are a must if one lives near towns and cities
No need for topography in FL, it's all just flat here. LOL.Atlas are ok but nothing beats a good township and range maps with a topo overlay specific for the area, even without a topo overlay these maps are a must if one lives near towns and cities
