    This is an old thread, but I just purchased two unusual things for my bug out bag. I added a Tool Shop brand 8" bolt cutters. This is not the best bolt cutter on the planet, and it will not cut locks. It is small, lightweight, and it will cut will I will need it to cut. Anyway, I added this if I have to bug out on foot. I live in area close to a lot of farms. These farms have wire fences that go along the road. If I have to bug out on foot, I do not want to get surprised by others walking on a road. I will carry this bolt cutter so that I can cut a couple sections of wire (or barbed wire), go inside the fence, and walk a slight distance from the road. It will also be good to have a fence as a barrier from others. I do not plan on cutting every strand of wire as I would not want to cause any hardship for the property owner if he has livestock. I also will not approach any buildings, and this will be done just to get away from the road.

    The second thing I ordered is a titanium pry bar. I spent a lot more money on this than what a steel one would cost, but it is about half the weight. I want this in the event I have to break into something. I watched a really good video on YouTube by a channel called the Contingency Theory. He recommended sleeping in businesses that are not targets of looters (like office buildings).

    Basic rules I will follow

    1). Travel at night
    2). Sleep during the day in places that are not likely to be searched, examine the area for awhile prior to entering, and go to areas of the building not likely to be searched (attic in abandoned houses, top floor of other buildings if multiple ways down).
    3). If following roads, walk several yards away from the road (inside edge of woods, on opposite side of fences).

    For anyone who is wondering, the little bolt cutters I found weighs 9 ounces. I thought about carrying other wire cutting tools, but this was by far the lightest one I found. I do not yet have my pry bar, and I do not know the exact weight of that.

    im thinking on adding icyhot with lidocaine
    you get sore real quick if you are out of shape and doing a lot of walking
    It happened before, it can happen again.
    It happened there, it can happen here.
    It happened to that person, it can happen to you.

    I am sure it is a good fire starter too. Take some extra cotton balls......
