    Good on ya for humping a ruck at 73. You are an inspiration.

    My ruck weighs in around 45 pounds. Thats with water. Not too much heavy stuff in there. I keep fighting loads to my 1st or 2nd line gear. I can cover 10 miles in 3 hours at a solid, 15 minute per mile pace w/ breaks for water, foot checks etc. At 20 miles a day, my performance will degrade, but I can plough on. I've done 21 miles in 7 hours before with my BoB and an AK.

    Additional equirment required after "50"

    I check glucose readings each hour. Gotta carry insulin and needles, but I can nearly do a check and injection (if needed) on the fly. Got a tiny shrapnel bit in one knee, but the drugs help me so I can walk. Can't do any MRI due to my pace-maker. (Yeah, I'm almost a $6,000,000 man, thanks to 'Nam and the V.A.) Takes me an hour to push-mow our lawn, and a bit less to reach the first "point" of group rendezvous. I am really trying to do better; I'd like to get "the mission" done on only a single pain-tab. Body is weird: some days the knee does not hurt at all. Others are $(&H%!S)&^^>><<?/, y'know? I'm humping only a 24-hr BOB on my shoulders, plus three disposable "canteens" of 3-liter pop-jugs. I find that the 3-l jugs are easier to Bi$$ in if I need to avoid dog-tracking. Real-life BOB, I'll have bought two more large canteens, WITH steel cup ea. Where we live is on a sort of plateau of this county, and luckily, my first point is a bit of a downhill grade. Life seems better, the older I get ! ! ! At least there is fun to be found. But my mistakes tend to be more expensive!! O, BTW, I carry a G-30 , drop-leg, with 4 extended mags on the other leg , and a Camp-Carbine 9mm folder with S&W-59 30-rd mags. set between my pack and my back. I utilized some "expanded-metal" like plastic from a not used any more baby-crib. This stuff is rugged but light-weight, and lets my back get some air circulation. I wove together two pieces with para cord and it's very comfortable. EBG

    QuikClot is in mine. IN a true SHTF situtation I feel much more comfortable having it! You can always find it at Indy 1500 for a reasonable price.

    don't forget dental floss and fingernail clippers. If I have to spend two weeks in the woods hiding under logs and such it's going to be miserable if it's this freaking hot outside! Pass the bug juice and the AC.

    To the guys that have posted their loadouts, how much would that stuff cost? I was going to spend some money at Bradis but I'd rather have a b.o.b. set up instead.

    Here's what I've already got:

    A Kabar
    A Gerber hatchet
    Quickclot and bandages...need more first aid
    A large Alice w/ frame
    A quality pocket knife
    2 qt collapsible canteen
    wool blanket
    Dynamo flashlights
    ...and that's all I have I could use on the top of my head that's in my anyways how much would getting a complete, basic pack put together, and at what cost?

    The price of the contents in your BOB is what's going to drive the price. I think in simple terms of food, water, shelter, first aid, and a means to retain mylife (gun). To add some food, a water filter, a tarp, and a gun to your kit could be as low as another $300 uptowards a couple thousand. BOB costs are all over the place and it all depends on what you want in yours. I just looked at my inventory in my BOB and just ballparking without the gun I'd be carrying it's around $600 worth of stuff. Mine is a large alice on the frame, with the most expensive components being the 6 loaded AR mags, MRE's, katadyn water filter & spare filter. Otherwise it's just all the small items that add up cost before you know it.

    I put small "pen" type bug spray and bite/sting relief into mine, as well. The bug spray isn't a huge amount, but is enough to get through a few days and it weighs next to nothing.
