    I'm working on a bag and a tub. The tub is a big plastic locker that I can throw in the back of the truck.

    I've got a lot of the things DD mentioned (need to get a few things I don't have).

    Add to that:

    Bungees
    Tarp
    Ductape
    Zip Loc Bags
    Notebook/Pens
    Blanket
    Small Hatchet/Hammer
    Water and MREs
    AM/FM/Shortwave Radio (intend to buy!)


    Considering:
    Anonymous Prepaid Cell Phone
    Motorola Walkies
    Lots of batteries
    Digital Camera
    Flare Gun


    For the Truck:
    Fix a Flat
    Tow Strap
    Jumper Cables
    Tent and necessity camping gear
    Propane/small grill
    Phone charger
    AC Power Inverter
    More Water and MREs

    Of course, if I'm able to go by truck, I'll practically empty the gun safe into the bed. The absolute necessities go in the bag, in the event we have to abandon the truck.

    Need that handcuff key and fire steel!!!

    I have a camelback hawg with 100 oz water hydration unit. In it I have:
    4 loaded M-4 mags (extra loose rounds)
    6 loaded glock 19 mags (extra loose rounds)
    1 mre
    1 etrex gps
    1 surefire
    extra batteries
    100 ft. para cord
    1 CRKT folder
    1 Cold Steel ODA (attached to carry strap)
    1 PRC-152 radio (extra charged battery)

    Hope I don't have to use it, but here in Central Iraq it could come in handy.
