    Everything stored inside or strapped onto a 5.11 Tactical Rush 72 three-day pack in black. A very plain-looking, if large, backpack, well-made, but not likely to draw unnecessary attention.
    Basic kit also includes obvious necessities, duct tape, zip-ties of various sizes, a small solar battery charger designed for*USB devices*(that charges my EM1000R radio due to its connectors, and thereby, charges my flashlight with its compatible batteries), a can of red spray paint, chapstick, other miscellanea.This is the core pack, and other auxiliary modules are stored nearby to enhance my capabilities depending on the specific nature of the emergency. THe basic pack comes with me basically everywhere, and is either under my bed or in my back seat at all times. This prohibits my keeping a firearm in the pack, as I live in Illinois.
