I was just curious how often the rest of you use your BOBs. Do you use yours on a regular basis (like say once a week or more), just when you forgot something that you also have in the BOB, just on occasion to test it out, its reserved for emergency use only, or what? I know I use mine pretty regularly. I keep a mess kit in it along with some quick easy foods, first aid stuff and so on as well as a foot locker in the truck with kind of supplemental stuff for the BOB like rain gear, change of cloths, and more food and such. I work outside and never know when I go to work if the day will be long enough to bother with a lunch break or if we will be near a place to grab a bite so like today, we were in a town that has nasty tasting water so I used my filter bottle to have decent drinking water, and since we had a full day with some down time for lunch (about 30-45 min) I pulled out the trioxine bars and mess kit and heated up water and made a couple cups of soup for lunch. When I was hunting last week I misplaced my lighter so I grabbed the spare out of my BOB and some of the fluid to fill it, ran out of smokes in the field so I got into my smokes that I keep in there. I'm constantly using mine (and replenishing it) and was just wondering how many of you do the same. Oh and this is also how I got reminded of a basic thing I had over looked...spoon and fork, while I have knives in it I had overlooked any other silverware, its also how I figured out that I had to put more appealing foods in it since I had the rice and some sustenance like that but even when I was hungry and wanted to eat and that was all I had with me I decided I would rather be hungry for several hours more than eat plain rice (I hate plain rice ). So how often dose you kit get used or how dose it get used?
