My Stranded Bag

I’ve wanted to have a Bug Out Bag (B.O.B), aka a Get Out Of Dodge (G.O.O.D) bag for a while now. I’ve even posted about it before, but I never really did it. Today I put it in my truck for real. One of the keys to getting it done was deciding what I wanted…

Is Black Gear A Good Idea?
