Grab and Run Bag

If a buddy called you up right now and said that he needed a hand or asked you if you wanted to go hunting right now and to be ready in 30 minutes do you have a bag or back pack packed and ready to go and if you do what is in it?

As for me I have two packs that I could grab and be happy for at least a day if not two.  In both of them I carry some candy bars, granola bars, fruit punch in a foil pouch (you know the kind that your kids like), a quart canteen of water, 100' of para cord, 5 or 6 pieces of 12x12 paper towels, matches in a water proof container, magniesum fire starter just in case the matches don't work, 4 30 gallon plastic bags, pack saw, and a knife sharpener.  I know on clothing I can grab either my spring, fall, or winter marked action packer box and have the main clothing that I would need in about 5 minutes.  If I need to take my truck all I have to do is throw in my 50 caliber chain box witch has tire chains, tow chains, jumper cables and oil in it already (the big problem is picking it up).  Then the 5' shovel, highlift jack, and an axe, along with my tools.  For my personal stuff it wouldn't take long to get clothes and meds ready and since I already pack a Leatherman and a pocket knife every day those two things are already there.  Now the rifle/pistole and ammo of my choice is right where I can grab it. 

So let's see what you folks have in your minute man rigs.

Re Grab and Run Bag

If I have 30 minutes before my buddy is going to stop by and pick me up that's plenty of time for me to glab my camo, gun, and pack. I keep all my stuff in my pack that I normally use for big game hunting and would just have to throw some food, water, tp depending on how long we are going to be gone. But I'm going to give it some more thought after reading your post. I should have stuff a little more organized like you do.

I had to get organized or

I had to get organized or else I would of been left behind on a lot of hunting trips.  Weather I had a tag or just went for the fun of it.  Plus is it nice to know just where to go to find the clothes or what ever else you should really have.  As I said the action packers or plastic tubs are a great way to go and if you just throw one of them in the back of a truck they will keep the water out.

Re I had to get organized or

I've missed an opportunity to get out when I got a phone call to come along. However years back I had found where I would forget stuff all the time before I as well got orginazed. I keep all my hunting stuff in my cargo trailer. When I get a call or decide to do a last minute outting I can grab my camo, day pack, shooting sticks, etc whatever the occasion may be. It also makes it handy so I no longer have to keep all my hunting/camping gear in the attic
