The bigest problem I find with BOBs, get home packs and so on is that they tend to be a trade off. The biger and better equiped they are the less likely you are to have it with you always and everywhere. So as a kind of mental exercise (and to give me some ideas) figured would set up a general situation to see what ideas folks would have for how to create discrete minimalist kits that could always go along. So, heres the senario. You will be going to a formal gathering (think wedding or funeral of a family member) say 100 miles from home. You will be rideing with others and not a ton of spare room so tossing a backpack and rifle case in isnt a viable option. Your 'spidey sense' is tingeling (or maybe stuff in news like say its 9/12/01) so you want to be sure you are prepared but not willing to miss the event. So the whole kit cant be over say 1.5 cubic foot or about the size of a womans medium sized purse. You cant count on being able to suplement supplies from stores and such but my have to make your way home with just whats in the kit and what you can get in nature on the way home. You also dont want it to atract ANY attention from folks you are rideing with or others in attendance. So what would be in your kit and what would you use to take it in? We will say you also have a change of clothes and shoes apropriate for the trip aside from the kit to make it easier.
