    I'm an experienced hiker, ultralight backpacker, and outdoorsman. Thanks for the tips though Mohamed and for the concern. I appreciate it.

    This trip is inspired by the show "Naked and Afraid." We didn't want to go that hardcore, nor could we take that much time of our respective jobs. We are allowed the shoebox, the clothes on our back, AND our tool belt. There are very few items that we allow folks to wear, but steripens and multitools are allowed. The tool belt makes it much easier.

    We plan on fishing, foraging, hunting and trapping for our food. My team mates are optimistic about the amount of meats we will be eating. I have a nagging suspicion that I'll finally get to try my recipes for clover and cattails.

    I know it seems frivolous to take my vaporizer, but it's better than 6-12 packs of cigarettes in volume. I feel bad for my smoking friends because that trip will NOT be the time to bum a vape. I'll trade a hit of this sweet nicotine for a fish, chief! My shoebox is already packed and after I put my vape gear in I'll still have enough room for a nano and some headphones. It's crazy how much gear you can fit in a standard shoebox with enough prep time.

    IMO, you would have needed an extra battery pack; I'm estimating you'll run out of power on the last day.

    Then again, you could be less likely to vape, so it could balance out.

    I'm afraid I'll run of battery by the end. Your thoughts, please? What gear do you take on your trips?

    I do not trek with battery packs or anything, I got a solar charger and I use that. It weighs about as much as my cell phone, is about that size, and I strap it on top of my rucksack while I am hiking so it can fill up every day. it holds about 1800mah, which is enough to get me through a full day out. This way I do not have to hike the miles back to any car to recharge anything, and can be out for weeks without any access to electricity.

    In this picture is my pv, my leatherman, a flattened roll of duct tape, my solar pack, and (edit-no, that's all that's there- I just emptied my pocket for the photo) any rate I always think of size and ability to access power; I go deep woods hiking for long stretches so any kind of "battery pack" wouldn't work for me. I don't remember where I got this but I am sure they're on amazon and such. Look for one that can completely charge a cell phone, then check the mah rating of the storage. I use mine for my onspot gps, phone, and pv out innawoods.

    Thanks! I've always wondered about the solar packs. Does it actually fill up every day? That might be a much better alternative. Unless it rains the whole time like it has before. Of course, if it does that I'm going to be miserable!


    Mohamed here's a pic of my gear. I still need to put the pita bread, fishing line, rope, and hooks in. But other than that it's about ready to go.2013-09-17_20-16-24_990.jpg2013-09-17_20-16-18_279.jpg

At that point I wouldn't even be thinking about vaping. Good luck!
    You might come close with MRE's but your better bet would be off with dehydrated food. Even the bags they come in have a bit of air that could vacuumed out if your willing to do without texture for your food. And you really only need 2 bags one for storage and one for adding boiling water as long you are close to stream and can clean the 2nd bag.

    But I would want more survival gear and be more dependent on renewable food resources. You still need gear for fire, shelter making, 1st aid, etc. If my bug-out bag was only 1 shoe box I'd be focused on that gear or only have 1-2 days of food. Water will be of major concern. Those water filtration pumps might take up 1/10 or more of the box.

    that looks like a good pack, if you really want to conserve space you could always put the peanut butter from the jars into a freezer bag instead, same with any other soft foods in rigid containers...saves space that way. I never carry packaging, always scoop my foods into bags that can be packed into nooks and crannies.

    I do the kind of forage camping you're planning on a fairly regular basis. it's much more fun for me than...campground picnicking, you know? the less I have to carry the farther I can walk into the forest...

    oh an yes they get a full charge in about six hours of daylight. I live oregon/northwest, on a grey rainy day they'll get a little more than half-filled.


    bug-out-bags are for city kids. lol

    mre's are for people without taste buds.

    That link takes me to a login screen not to the power bank, but 2A should do the trick. I've built some mods that way.

    On the belt is magnesium, bug spray, multitool, 1 liter nalgene, saw, knife, steripen.

    After you see all the tools I carry, it's not as hard of a trip, is it?

    every tool makes it easier! I don't carry a space blanket though, I have an oilcloth and wool blankets instead of a sleepy bag as well....I use oilcloth to knapsack things, tie em all in a balanced way to a frame pack. about the heaviest thing I carry is a camp hatchet...I just got one of those magic straw things, the water purifier straws. those are amazing as hell and small.

    you've got nice gear man!
