I had a slow day at work today with lots of time to set and day ponder and was working on a collage campus. What I thought of was between the federal laws that now prohibit guns on school property (and include collages) and kids concerns of seeming 'weird' to their friends and limited space in dorms, how would a kid in collage be able to be prepared in case they had to get home say 200-2000 miles away if SHTF when they were at school? Well like I say it was a long slow day with loads of down time so what I came up with could be done by them or by parents if there were concerns of the kid using the stuff and not replacing it. Rent a storage space as close as possible to the campus (or if kid lives off campus then half way between their place and campus) and if the parents have to do this for them give them a key with a warning not to open it unless its an emergency and put the gear there. The type of goods I cam up with was something like this depending on budget. Ideally a dirt bike and 20-30 gallons of stabilized fuel but could be just a mountain bike A tow behind cart around the size of a large wheel barrow or a bit larger 5-10 gallons of water Bug out pack with water filter, 5-10 days food, good first aid kit, mess kit, supplemental food gathering tools (snares, nets whatever), pup tent, sleeping bag, good hunting knife, bolt cutters, camp ax, Zippy with extra fuel and flints, pack of disposable lighters, good survival guide book and first aid guide, maps from there to home (or BO location) possibly with 3 or 4 good BO routes highlighted in advance, etc $200-$300 cash in 1's 5's and 10's shotgun with adequate ammo (including slugs) for defense as well as shooting food handgun and holster with ammo I was thinking putting this stuff and maybe a few add ons in a storage space might be a good kind of insurance for the kids to have a better chance of making it home if things went bad while they were there. Like I said, it was a boring day at work. lol Just figured I would toss this up and see if anyone else had thought about this aspect of things and what they had come up with, especially since I know some of the folks here have, have had or soon will have kids at collage.
