    FOCUS: If you had to boil it down to just five items in a bag, and not just for your car but an "anywhere, anytime" kit beyond what you normally have with yourself daily- what are the five most essential things you require? You can carry lots of stuff in a vehicle, let's restrict it to just what you could easily stuff into a small bag and get the hell outta Dodge with.

    - An upscale porn magazine from 1986

    - One Hawaiian shirt

    - 6 feet of chicken wire

    - 1911 .45

    - A martini shaker

    I'm already humming the Magnum PI theme.

    Incidentally, this is also the list of items found in a dead hooker's apartment when Carrot Top finally snapped.

    Somewhere along I-77.

    1.) $150 in twenties, tens, and fives; any other denominations (i.e. coins) are too large or small to bother with.

    2.) My Scharade knife, can't remember the length of it but it's of a decent size.

    3.) Good pair of gloves and a balaclava; this is cheating on the 'five item rule' but they go hand-in-hand for me on a near daily basis.

    4.) Either a full carton or a minimum of four packs of cigarettes.

    5.) Pocket pussy just because I have needs no mere hand can meet.

    -A hat, the faded old Twins cap that was way too big when I got it in youth baseball but fits perfectly now.

    -Sunglasses, dark and polarized.

    -A 1911, loaded with hollowpoints.

    -A bag of stinky, sticky weed, papers, and a lighter.

    -Condoms.

    What can't I accomplish with that?

    Yeah, the dude who's baked out of his tree carrying a loaded gun and wearing dark sunglasses, what could he possibly screw up.


    Focus: Anal beads, lube, and three disposable cameras.

    A change of clothes
    baseball glove
    tampons + two pocket shots of booze
    flash light
    jumper cables


    I'm not funny, so I don't have a funny list.

    I don't know. How much am I going to have to live off the land? Do I have to include my big "fuck off, winter!" parka? And for that matter, I've been places - on short notice - and there's usually 2 duffel bags and a 100 litre backpack involved. If not more.

    I'd want...

    -a sturdy pair of boots
    -passport
    -lots of cash
    -smartphone, jailbroken
    -a very comfortable backpack

    I'd say that lets me do just about anything. I can swing by the outdoors store, the liquor store, or the bus station as needed and go from there. I mean, I'm assuming I can use that wad of cash to buy whatever, right?

    If I had to drop everything and hop on a bus to somewhere:

    1. Passport
    2. Wallet (ideally $1-200 cash)
    3. Tylenol/Ibuprofen
    4. Cell phone
    5. Spare underwear

    Honestly I could probably get by on spare underwear and a passport.

    It'd be more fun with a caveat: no cash. That's like having a magic genie when we're talking just bare minimum stuff, not to mention worthless aside from tinder and toilet paper if you aren't in civilization.

    I carry a 9mm, a lighter, and a small pocketknife daily, so that's covered.

    - LED headlamp
    - First aid kit
    - $1,000
    - Large, sturdy water bottle
    - Handheld GPS

    The husband's answer:
    *A change of clothes
    *$200 in cash
    *40 pounder of vodka
    *first aid kit
    *100ft of paracord

    My answer:
    *Emergency blanket
    *This book
    *Hatchet
    *Toothbrush (and toothpaste)
    *Lifesaver bottle (barring that, a pot and lid, string and a cup)

    Y'know what? Fuck that. I'd bring my credit card and a pack of condoms. From there, I can buy or fuck my way into getting whatever else I need.

    See, I gave my answer based on some sort of apocalypse scenario, rather than just going on the lam. Passports and cash aren't gonna help after a major meteor strike.
