BOB food suggestions

Rations are great and fairly affordable is you can conserve the package and use it for 2-3 meals. The following is a list of some other items that are great and more traditional to be added into your BOB Bug Out Bag – your Dodge Back as in Get out of Dodge.

Look up how to make;
Bannock
Hard Tack
beef or turkey jerky
billtong – see South Africa
add in high protein jams
soldier fuel bars a Canadian company who has their product in Canadian Rations & maybe US rations?
foil pouches of fish, some are dated for over 10yrs, I picked some up at a dollar store for $1 each WallyWorld was selling them for $3 each (bought 25 of each flavour)
TVP
powdered soup – chicken-beef
angle hair pasta – easy to make better than those little ramen packs for taste and health
some Seasoning eg, taco, bbq rub etc for extra flavour
Hemp Hearts – Hemp Seeds
Honey Cakes with fortified with nuts and berries, packaged up in sealer = last up to 10yrs
Christmas Cake, it was designed to be able to be stored for up to 5yrs in paper alone for Troops in WWI
you can use Tuna Cans as stated above, stronger than pop cans,
get some solid fuel as well as some Methyl Hydrate 90% (denatured alcohol) or higher, repackage the mouth to make it even more airtight.
vac pack it all, put in Tyvec packages you can make yourself
Gun Tape/Tuck tape it all (Al Green eat your heart out on that one)
plus some regular BOB things
one of the most overlooked items is a small pair of pliers that can cut wire! That is a must.
P51 or a Canadian Can opener
The Canadian Version is over twice the height designed to be used in the Artic with mitts and gloves on, and just generally feels easier to use.

So I forgot about this post and made another! Well now, I will just have to merge them later in one big post.

    They have a Christmas Cake at the V&A Museum in London was baked abt 1849 and the oldest in the US is over 100 yrs old – just goes to prove that if you soak it in enough booze it will last forever.
    Would also add Metemucal (sp?) cookies – the added fiber might be really important if your system runs to loose when not on its regular schdule. If you get the chocolate ones even the kids will eat them.

  2. Hey Lili,
    long time no hear, hope everything is well, especially in regards to your trips to the big smoke. Been missing seeing your posts.

    Adding in those cookies is something I never would have thought of. So what a great addendum to the list. I think a container of regular Metamucil would be a good addition as well.
