Survival BOB

So recently I was made aware of what I had been doing for years. I was unintentionally making a BOB and not even knowing it. So recently I have been doing some research and came up with a lot of good info. One of the most interesting sites that I've found lately is Zombie Hunters. Amazing stuff they have there as well as great ideas. I will leave you with pics of what I have so far, very much a work in progress.


Pic of the whole thing.

Pelican cases camera and iPod, Surefire and Inova LED candles, various knives including my Cold Steel Recon 1 a CRKT, Kershaw, and Gerber with mini scissors multi tool, Notebooks, sunscreen and extra CR123 batteries, An Epi Pen, flash drive and survival paracord bracelets.

You should never leave home without a Woobie also two field stripped MRE's and a sleeping mat. Not pictured is the rest of the sleep system.

I've got three issued style fleece hats as 90% of heat loss is through the head, 550 cord with some various caribiners, 100 mph tape more 550 a Camelbak BFM with 100 oz bladder, gloves and a pair of Gerber's that are almost always on my riggers belt which is a Spec Ops tan variant.

I don't have any cold gear as I'm still working on that. Let me know what you think.

Cold Steel Recon 1

A few months back I purchased a Cold Steel Recon 1 and waited for it to arrive. When it finally arrived I was immediately impressed with the sharpness and how smoothly it opened and closed. There was almost no blade play when I got it nor is there much now. My wife actually cut herself the first day that I had it. I then tested it out cutting various things and tried cutting a bottle in half. And it worked just like in the video. I was impressed. Needless to say the Recon 1 immediately became my EDC. It is rather large but I definitely got used to it and now feel naked when I accidentally leave it on the dresser. I don't have any pictures of the knife brand new but rather some of the knife after about 5 or so months of pretty heavy use as it is my primary carry knife. You can pick one up here for $62 and change. I rate this knife 5 out of 5 and recommend it to everyone I know.

Warrior PT

A few weeks ago I ordered a program that is changing my life. It's by Dr. Scott Ringler. It's called Warrior PT. Check out his website and give it a try. It will change your life if you want it to. It's definitely worth the $49 price tag.



Welcome. I hope that someday this will be something that many people visit everyday and can make decisions or read reviews on products, restaurants, places, and tactical gear that I have used, visited or purchased.

With that I will tell you a little about myself. I got the nickname Trebec from when I used to work at Pepsi and I just rolled with it. I am an Infantryman in the United States Army and am currently stationed out at Fort Irwin,California. I am also married with a daughter on the way.

That's all I have for now. Thanks for stopping by.
