    I found my HK and AK fit into those bags used for folding chairs. Doesn’t look perfect but it hides it in a common looking object.

    Osage, more solid advice!
    I did exactly that and have a backpack from Walmart.
    I’ll be wearing my everyday clothes. I don’t really see the need for any tactical or camo nonsense unless I’m on a suicide mission.
    Unfortunately, fitting in for me will be an issue because I’m a white girl. It’s an issue everyday here. This is not a race thing; I’m not racist. But the South still is, on both sides.
    Avoidance will be the key to preserving my life and getting home safely. Avoiding everyone, the gangbangers, rednecks, totally lost hipsters, looters from all sides, etc.
    Everyone wants what you have.
    Avoidance is key.

    Osagemarine, I have the long barrel Imbel. I have updated it some. I will see if I can post an image tomorrow so you can see it. Since I updated it looks so nice, and bad! I purchased it in 1995 or 1996.

    Here is the image,

    Hanna,
    Race is an issue in every city in the USA, in some aspects we seem more divided now than we were in the 60’s.
    If you do not want to not be seen camo or natural colors is important. Shades of grey and light browns are excellent for regular clothing. Look at the coloring of whitetail deer, they blend into the environment with very little cover. Have something with you for this purpose. Travel at night and buy some night vision equipment. just sayin

    Hannah & 1974t150v, This is my view, all races has bad people and good people so in a SHTF you need to study each person.

    So there are good ones and bad ones.

    Whirlibird, nice! The main barrel are the same, my back end is not the same. I added the rail on top and front end so it did look like yours before. So the rails for the scope which I need to purchase is not easy to add but the front rails for the handle and red laser is easy to add. This rifle is one strong rifle.

    Whirlibird, Here is some more images of the rails I added for the scope and the front rail for a light and laser.

    Get Home Bag – Full as hell or would you cache some items?
    My Get Home Bag is three days of food/water and various other items. I wanted the essentials but did not want a 50lb alice bag.
    If you lived a good ways from where you work would you cache items in a place midways between the two?
    Since I am retired that is not a concern for me.

    Robin, A three day bag is good. To much would weight 40 to 50lbs which would be hard on the body.

    I like the premis of the original article and the authors thought process. This issue is an important aspect most of us might be required to contend with in the future.

    I agree. The original article is very pertinent. When I am going somewhere further than local I try to make sure I have some basics with me in addition to the full backpacks that are always there. For example I had to go down to Massachusetts this afternoon for a meeting….a coat and tie type meeting, so in addition to the usual stuff I threw in a pair of sneakers to change into and a regular jacket. That would come in handy for something as simple as a flat tire let alone a true SHTF event. I’m not going to get very far wearing dress shoes. It s very long distance trips such as when I go to North Carolina that are tougher to plan for because being 850 miles from home would make for a truly epic journey in good times.

    A very simple thing that many forget is just to keep the gas tank full. My truck has a 36 gallon tank and thus has a pretty good range but many times I’ll fill it up even if it is still 3/4’s full just because at that moment in time I can.

    The concepts in Toby’s Every Day Carry Foundation Concepts go along with this thread very nicely. I’ve gone back and reviewed that article several times since it first came out almost 3 months ago, particularly after getting the cover for my truck bed (which gives me far greater flexibility in what I can just stow and “forget” (updating, checking, recharging, etc., not withstanding). And it also gave me more options as to what I can now include without having to cram stuff in between back seat passengers – now I can just carry it all in the locked (and almost completely dry) truck bed.
