Default Hypothetical Question

If the World were to "fall apart" and you had to Bug-Out, shelter-in-place, and you could only take one item, what would it be? (besides food, clothing, weapons') those items should be ready to go anyway.

As in 1 non-essential item?

It's dark but fair....some sort of suicide pill. There is a point at which surviving the end times isn't worth it. Sometimes death is the kindest outcome. Surviving at all costs is overrated when it comes to the special hell humans have the ability to create for each other.

Its a measure of extreme last resort but I've always wondered why bug-out culture doesn't recognize many such situations end with the most ruthless elements of society surviving and even thriving. I know folks who bought rifles to protect long distance perimeters in these survival situations and the only thing I can think is, who wants to live like that?

My "bug out kit" bag. Thats one item... comprised of many items .

I am putting together a small emergency kit to throw in whatever vehicle we are are. Typically we have alot of first aid gear, just never seem to take any with us for a quick ride... because "hey, we're only going for a quick ride". Problem with that, is ya never know when you will need it.

I had bought, and this arrived last night (the orange one).

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tactical-EM...53.m2749.l2649

Gathering up small items to fill it. I have an arm/leg/wrist splint, military surplus trauma bandages, steri-strips, hockey tape, knife, alcohol, pain meds, light, knife etc etc. The bag is small enough we should be able to keep it with us more often.

I tell my family, I dont know if any of us might need it, but we could come across someone else who needs it. Stuff happens...

Already in a state of shelter-in-place and I'm sure with a hand-wringing curfew imposed now, so what we already have...
