Letter Re: A Recommended Vehicular G.O.O.D. Kit Packing List

Thursday, Sep 9, 2010

Jim:

I developed the following vehicular bug out bag (BOB) or "Get Out of Dodge" (G.O.O.D.) kit packing list.

[JWR Adds: There is no "one size fits all" for G.O.O.D. lists. Your own list should be tailored for your personal circumstances. Your age, climate, local terrain, local hydrology, population density, physical fitness, and many other factors will necessitate changes to the following list. There are also vast differences between "what you can carry in your car" versus "what you can carry on your back" lists.]
