Everyone should be ready for a minimal emergency, be it a power outage, earthquake, storm, or terrorist event. For most, the term bug out bag conjures up images of apocalyptic zombies, with survivors aimlessly trudging from nowhere to God knows where. Nope, the first thing that you are NOT going to buy is the latest high speed, low drag, tacticool wonder sack.
With very limited exceptions the number one cause of death in survival situations is not starvation or even dehydration, but exposure.
An essential key is keeping your body dry and therein you will learn one of the first perils of the bug out bag. Having a method to get out of the cold rain or wet snow is the first step to getting you out of the weather completely. The tent you have laying around or the ones found at the local Wal-Mart are probably not going to fit the bill. Tub- The bottom of the tent needs to have a water proof tub that extends part way up the sides to help repel water from your sleeping area. Notice how the tub (brown portion) on this Alps Mountaineering tent extends well up the sides.
A decent tent is going to set you back a hundred bucks or more but there is one truly budget alternative. The Scout departs from the modern design of the dome tent and hearkens back to tent designs of yesteryear. Once you are in your tent you are going to have to retain your body heat and to a lesser degree, need comfort.
For those of you that might experience zero, or even sub zero weather, consider this; in addition to a sleeping bag like mentioned above, you can add a second, smaller bag like the Sea To Summit Reactor. Another method of insulating your body heat from the ground, as well as making a night’s sleep more comfortable is the sleeping pad. Combating exposure is the main focus in a bug out bag simply because exposure is most likely to kill you first when out in the elements. Even if you are relatively fit, I doubt you often walk with a heavy pack for eight or ten hours a day.
At this point, you might survive quite happily for three days with the gear mentioned to this point, if nothing goes wrong.
Clothing adds a tough dynamic, especially for folks who experience the extremes of all four seasons.
I mentioned communications, any fan of the Tin Hat Ranch will know that for this purpose, I recommend the Baofeng UV-5R. Rather than continue to rail on the wrong bags, I would rather tell you what to look for in a proper bug out bag.
Internal Frame-  Just like the hip belts, the internal frame is designed to handle and distribute the load.
Adjustable Shoulder Straps- To save the middle of your back from aches and pains, adjustable shoulder straps round out the list of must haves. Size- If you put together a basic load out from this article you are going to be roughly in the neighborhood of a 60-70L pack. If you find a bag in the right size, that meets all the criteria, in a color suitable to your tastes you win. If you fall into the military bag camp, our friends over at Trenton Tactical sent us this surplus Dutch Woodland Camouflaged Pack.
If you are the family Sherpa and looking for a good quality 80L or larger pack that won’t break the bank, I recommend the Kelty Coyote 80.
Although this is a rather long article, it condenses a great percentage of the things you need to know when putting together a bug out bag. A suggestion for a bag from someone who has traveled with one extensively is an Osprey Sojourn, which is a rolling backpack with an excellent harness system. The best advice I can give for buying better gear at a decent price is to buy on the big sale weekends, Labor Day and Memorial Day. Sierra Trading post has some good deals but wait until you can combine multiple discounts off their newsletters. I currently use a Therm-a-rest 40th anniversary model I purchased as a closeout but the Trail Scout you mention is certainly an excellent choice. While the pack may not be as comfortable as my trusted Osprey, I had no complaints after days of heavy travel. Fashioned in full-grain natural saddle leather with an appealing, rounded shape and long handles. In addition to cramming the pack full, I attached my extra bags, including my laptop bag, to the Western Pack. A subtle, embossed Ospey London logo sits on the front of the bag just between the handles. Im 18 just graudated, and im heading out your way next month from Saskatchewan, I plan to hop a ferry in horseshoe bay to the gulf Islands, then to Vancouver Island.
One inch of ice in 3 days !!!It wasreal windy most of the day and I spent more time in the EskimoQuick Fish 3.The two holes in the shelter provided some steady action for perch and bluegills. The pack held strong aside from one seam that gave a few stiches when I attempted to lift the entire overloaded by a tightening strap.
I have seen some outlets raise the price as high as $50, but generally it runs for around $40.
Im feeling pretty overwhelmed with the idea already :S Pretty sure its a normal or understandable feeling to get before headiing out though haha. With internal gusseted sides to keep contents safe and a studded base for extra protection.
I would provide a photo, but the seam doesn’t appear damaged enough to show up in a picture! The death lull kicked in around1230 and fishing picked back up again at 3pm.I landed the usual residents of the lake-- a few trout, afew nice crappies, perch and gills.

Black small grainy calf leather Mini Padlock bag with soft-sided top handle and embossed Alexander McQueen logo. The bag features deep ivory detailing on the sides of the bags and the handles,additional long shoulder strap,detachable chunky skull padlock and leather encased keys.
Plenty ofpanfish with a few perch hitting the 9-inch mark and a crappie thatwas almost 10 inches.I caught trout sporadically throughout the day, ending with 9. Teddy told me the lake is completed covered and the ice might be about 1 inch orso.Teddy has patrolled and lived next toAntietam Lakealmostall his life and he knows the lake.
Featuring top zip closure, front pocket with tab lock detail, detachable shoulder strap, double handles with logo stud detail, internal zip pocket, protective metal feet and signature gold tone hardware detail. An outer flap opens to reveal a zipper pocket card or license pocket two open pouches and a change purse; hidden magnets hold it closed.
Inside a long fixed zipper pocket divides the handbag into two compartments and there is an additional inner zipper pocket. Wear as a cross-body, or remove the detachable strap to make it a sultry clutch with handy wrist strap for nights out, or remove both straps to make it a simple pouch for travelling. There isplenty of rainfall predicted for that area.Most of the fish sitting in the estuary should be entering the river as I type this.
Anglers tend to give you space, the scenery is beautiful and the Osprey's always put on a show. Wednesday was spent in the upper fly zone and wasslow in the morning but pretty consistent in the afternoon.
Ialso landed a smallmouth bass, a few small brown trout, afew small rainbows (steelhead smolts ?), a fallfishand a baby AtlanticSalmon. It features a simple flap over design with stunning OSPREY LONDON English Rose Garden lining.
The Mohawk egg pattern accounted for many smaller fish and the salmon sized Light Spruce fly produced a few hookups. Last years--One Day Trip-- hot fly,Olive bugger with White marabou tail and redcrystal flash also received plenty of attention and did account for 2 fish.
The guyI was fishing withused plenty of flies with smaller bucktail flies doing most of the damage. He didhook-up with a few fish while usingmy Death Stonefly, landing one nice Coho.I can tell you this---the next few weeks will provide some serious action. There are fish in the system at this moment and with the water release at 1800 CFS and the rain. Lined with off-white smooth leather; one large slip pocket and six card slots at interior . Our oversized leather shoulder bag is crafted of premium leather that's tumbled for a gently broken-in look with a lovely sheen, with twin straps for a comfortable shoulder or hand carry.
A hidden zip pocket in the side seam stores your cash or keys while the wide zip compartment in back is big enough for an iPhone 6 Plus. There's a lined, spacious interior secured by a recessed top zip closure that organizes all of your essentials with two cell phone pockets, one slip pocket, and one zip pocket.
Brushed gold hardware and leather zip tassels add the perfect finish to this versatile bag.
Fashioned in top-grain leather with its naturally rich, unfinished grain, this good looking bag accommodates your every need without running out of space.
And you can open the top zip closure and access the roomy interior without taking it off your shoulder. Lined in graphic print fabric, the inside includes three slip pockets and a zip wall pocket. There's also a bonus side compartment with a secure zip closure and a leather tassel pull, where you can stash your keys for easy access.
The pool we were fishing was loaded with suckers and chubs and I did see a few trout and a couple of nice sized smallmouth bass.
Any questions as to what to tie, just shoot me an email or use the Contact 2Bonthewater page. All that cold water coming from a quarry and the creek itself in that area is near lifeless.
The bridge is now being painted a Hunter Green color.Most of the creeks in the OleyValley are really low. Even with the rain, the creeks remain very low.A I have a trip scheduled to the Salmon River planned inlate September thanks to Jack.
Without Jack's kindness and awesomeness, I would not be going salmon fishing.A I have startedtyingflies for the upcoming salmon trip. Zoe competed in a National Beauty pageant and won honorable mention in the beauty competition (FYI -- Zoe wears no make-up, fake hairor fake teethand she competes in the natural division--she is my little girl and I would never DRESS HER UP like all those crazy folks you see on TV). We dressed as fishermen, answered a question about each other and then Zoe did some fly casting on stage. Featuring flap top closure with oversized round chrome magnetic fastening, adjustable leather and chain shoulder strap with stud detail, internal slip pocket and silver tone hardware.
Zoe was crowned Little Queen when she won the Pennsylvania state pageant back in 2006 while competing in a Sunburst pageant. Slip pocket and zip pocket underneath front flap; polished gunmetal-tone snake chain strap and hardware. There are plenty of out of the way smaller streams that are teeming with Smallmouths, Carp and a variety of Panfish.
Snake chain strap can be worn doubled as short shoulder strap or as single long shoulder strap.
Perkiomen Creek -- air temp 89 degrees, checked the temperature at two spots, temps were 70 and 69 degrees -- Taken between 415-425 pmA Manatawny Creek -- air temp was 88 degrees, checked the temperature at three spots, temps were 76 degrees at Red Covered Bridge, 74 degrees above TIKI bar and 76 degrees below the Rt. This heatwave has made most ofthe local trout streams too warm to fishfor the catch and release angler. Maiden Creek below Ontelaunee Lake should provide anglers with some fishthat are willing to bite.

You can find Carp, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bassand a wide assortment of panfish to keep you busy.
Take some cold water with you !!!Your best way to keep the water cool is to freeze a bottle or two of water the night before you head out. As the day heats up, the water bottles will slowly melt, leaving you with nice cold waterto drink throughout the day.
I fished for 30-minutes on Manatawny and landed 2 wild browns on a tan caddis dry fly in the area where the water temp was 68 degrees.
Temperature wise, if it is 90 degrees outside, pretty sure most, if not all of the local trout waters will be at 70 degrees or higher. We don't wantto kill the trout.The trout that survive through the summer will offerus great fishing in the fall.
I have not made a trip to the Schuylkill River as of yet, but I'd bet the house that the smallie action should be pretty darn good.
You can also takeyour watercraft outbefore Epler atCross Keys Road or at Muhlenburg Township park which is below the PFBC Epler Access.
There is little room to fish, unless you don't mind walking the shoreline that is covered with all types of vegetation, including Poison Ivy.
Pleny of fish to be caught in this body of water, that is if you can get to them.A Manatawny Creek fished OK.
This stretch used to provide some very nice smallmouth action, but the last few trips here have been poor. Switched to a spent spinner pattern and hooked up twice--snapped one off and landed a nice stocker brown. The water is up from recent rains inthe valley, but the stream was clear and in perfect condition. The Schuylkill River and a few tribs shouldprovide any cat or carp angler with a few bites each nite.
The double thickness oval base of this bag is the key to keeping its curves and the top part being soft is the key to those beautiful pleats. Channel catfish prefer dead baits andsmaller live bait, while the Flatheads prefer larger live bait.
The top handle strap is long enough wear over the shoulder and of course is perfect to use as a hand-held bag.
Carp will eatsmaller live bait including minnows andcrayfish along with the standard fare of homemade MUSH bait or whole kernel corn.The bottom line is--It doesn't really matter what bait you areusing.
The long, adjustable (and detachable) strap gives you the option of wear your bag cross body. A flat leather thonging weaves it way through the top reinforced loop, is adjustable with a leather tab and bosts two beautiful , hand made leather tassels. But, by now it was pitch black and it was raining pretty good and thelightning made it look like the 4th of July came early.I managed to land 2 fish on my emerger pattern androll 2 other trout. Started out at the mouth of Sacony Creek but there was some serious bridge work going on, so I left after a few casts. Italian made shoulder bag with embossed interlocking G logo on the front synonymous with the Soho range. Caught some nice bluegills, onebrown trout, pumpkinseeds, green sunfish, agolden shiner and I almost hooked into a very nice largemouth bass. Featuring flap top double snap closure, detachable adjustable leather and chain cross body strap, internal card slots, center smart phone pocket, zip pocket and gold tone hardware detail. Kids and water mean plenty of noise,lots of splashing and lots offun.Normally, 750pm is about the timethe sulphurs start popping off.
I saw some Iso's and huge stoneflies coming off and flying around.I caught a trophy Bluegill, no kidding check out the picture, almost 9 inches. I left my headlamp in the truck so I had to walkout before it got too dark and miss the potential spinner fall.
I then drove to another stretch of the crick and hooked up a few times fishing a brown spent spinner. I lost them at the bank.A Fish the mornings with a brown or white spent spinner and you might get a few takes on the surface.
My favorite is a "John's Spring Creek Pupa" tied in size 18 and 20 (Trout Flies of The East--page 93).
I caught two brookies on a CDC sulphur dry fly and the rest of the fish were caught with nymphs. What an amazing fish, especially on a 2 wt bamboo fly rod with a fly reel that is dated to the 1930's or 1940's. What a specimen.He looked like a submarine swimming in the water !!My first impression of the leviathan is that it was a wild fish. Tonights fishing provided a mixed bag of fish, a few smallwild brown trout, along with a few stocker browns, stockerrainbows and the brook trout.
I topped it all off with a visit to Ted's house to show off the bamboo fly rod and talk shop.
It was about 40 degrees and raining.I didroll a larger fish on a midge, but aside from that, it was a very slow night. Cast down and across and hop the flies upoff the bottom with quick upward lifts of the fly rod.The fish would really strike hard. I still have not figured out whyone day I will catch all browns, one day I will catch all rainbows and some days, you will catch a little of everything.
