    I am trying to build a bug out bag for my wife and I. Is it better to have 1 large BOB or 2 medium BOB? What types of things do i need? I have an idea but im not confident that i am gathering the right stuff and not sure if it is not enough or too much junk.

    steel can tine and metal cup
    waterproof matches 50
    fire starter striker
    deet bug repellent
    fishing line 10lb and 10 hooks

    pistol inside (no idea how much ammo for each)
    military grade ontario knife machete
    sog hatchet
    fake grub worms
    2 underware/socks
    thermal underware
    small tarp sealed not sure size needed
    extra prescriptions 2-3 weeks worth
    multi tool
    signal mirror
    boonie hat/mosquito head net
    psgat helmet strapped to side (1990's style)
    sewing kit (cheap)
    small emergency water filter
    dehydrated food or mre (not sure yet or how many)
    sling shot (dont know why but sounds like a good idea)
    thermal blanket
    face paint ?

    He is correct. There are plenty of great SHTF forums out there but THR has a very focused mission of promoting responsible gun ownership and 2A issues.

    Welcome to THR. Sorry to drop the hammer on you so early on, but look around and get a feel for who and what we are and above all enjoy the folks here.
