Actually, if you go to Quake Kare and look at the home kits, you'll see that they come in a 5 gallon buckets which is supposed to double as a toilet. I'm sure the incremental cost of the bucket (or the small back packs their kits come in) don't add much to the cost of the kit. You could take everything out of it and then just use the bucket for brass or use the pack for other stuff.
yea seems like everything im finding online are kits that come pre packaged in a pack. Im assuming that there is a significant added cost for the back pack so considering i have one im trying to find a "contents only kit" .... one trip to cabelas could take care of this problem though
Edited to add - they also have "Replacement Kits" which replace the perishable items like food, boxed water, and first aid items as well as office kits that come in a cardboard box.

If you live on LI and a sudden catastrophic SHTF happens no chance in Hell you're getting out if here by car! SHIP (shelter in place) is your best bet.

Depending on flood levels you may have to be on the move. Have a plan A and a Plan B.
Its good to have. My wife went nuts after binge watching a season of Doomsday Preppers. She insisted we get ready to bug out. Then it took us 4 hours to get to my Aunts house around exit 8 in NJ one Saturday. Have you ever tried to get off Long Island on a holiday or during rush hour, or anytime between 6am and 8pm? We decided our SHTF scenario is going to be to bug in instead of out. A properly stocked basement, a natural gas generator, and plenty of ammo is your best bet.

food, water, shelter, fire and man protection. screw the MREs they are too heavy to carry. Get the freeze dried packs at sports authority. lighter and more nutritious. Toss in hot water and done. Small med kit, aspirin.
thanks for all the info fellas.... "Bug in" would be the future plan but for the near future i need to be able to get to RI to get the Mrs. I have the logistics of getting there figured out (multiple ways) just need to get a bag set up. Its really as much for day to day preparedness as it is for a true SHTF
