My Jeep is our "bug out" vehicle so it is stocked and ready to go. Our "daily driver" cars only have the bare minimum; energy bars, jerky, granola and water for 72 hours, IFAK, LED flashlight, headlamp and extra batteries, glow sticks, survival blankets, fire starter kit and fixed blade knife.
I need to pickup two new handheld radios since I made the mistake of vacuum sealing my Midland 75-822 CB Radios with batteries in them, a $250 mistake.

That's pretty impressive for a "bare minimum" inventory!! I would love to see the list in the bug out vehicle, however, the server might crash if you post that big of a message

As for radios, a lot of folks have been investing in the Baofeng UV-5R Plus models. I love mine and am buying a couple more to replace my FRS radios. They transmit on pretty much any frequency (except CB) and also monitor a lot of the public service frequencies such as fire, forest service, etc. I use mine as a scanner, HAM radio, work radio, FRS radio and MURS radio. For less than $40 bucks, you cannot beat it! Link here: [Click Here]

It comes with a long lasting NIMH battery and drop in charger which works very well. If you will be using them for emergency purposes, then you should invest in the AA battery pack for that radio. Link here: [Click Here]

Can't say enough about the bang for the buck on these radios. Nothing comes close for the price.

What can I am a Boy Scout (Webelo actually) at heart! Riding out tropical storms and hurricanes in South Florida and my love of off-roading and unimproved camping only reinforced it.

Thanks for the radio link, I paid twice that for a crappy handheld CB a few years ago. Do you need a Amateur Radio license (technician?) to operate the radio in an emergency?

I think the general rule is that if you have a life threatening emergency then you can use any radio on any frequency in order to summon help. Your best bet would be to get your HAM license so you know the way of the land and also get to know a lot of great folks! Getting your license is inexpensive and the local Big Bear Amateur Radio Club (BBARC) is a GREAT bunch of peeps. There are several of them here on SCM. They schedule training and testing sessions often. Im sure someone here can provide details on the next sessions. With good radio equipment available for under $40.00 it really makes good sense to get your ticket.

Also, the test is not very difficult at all. If I remember correctly, you can study the actual test questions and answers online - there's something like a pool of 300 questions and they use 36? of them on the actual test. You can take practice tests online as well. There were even a couple members on here that got a perfect score on their ham tests.

Some years ago I looked into getting my license but I got sidetracked with coaching my daughters' AYSO soccer teams. My daughters are aging out of AYSO so maybe I'll have some time to find a local group and study up for the test.

I've been studying for the last 2 weeks, about 30 minutes a day, using the interactive hamtestonline.com and am totally ready for the next tech exam day. It's not that hard, just some basic memorization. As to unlicensed people transmitting on ham frequencies, it is allowed only if a person or property is in grave jeopardy AND no other regular form of communication is available. It was one of the questions in the exam question pool.

I agree with Benny that the main point is that the area is posted closed and people are in violation, but I agree with Mountainarts observations and believe the Eagles are more adaptive than we think. I have been here since 1961 and am not concerned.

To BootsnBridles, I was only referencing what everybody who lives around Flathead Lake in Montana grows up knowing. Eagles basically are crows with fancy dress, Google all the videos of them mobbing townsfolk, or stealing groceries off people leaving the market.
Nothing negative, or positive that I am asserting, they are just what they are, no biggie.

I was only commenting on the eagles, and how they are scavenger birds, which mentally have no fear of human activity.

Snowplay folks, and trespassing I was not referencing. That is a whole huge probl3m up here, with trash, no respect and outright hostility to homeowners as they blqtantly trespass qnd trash your porperty, while they look at you telling them to move on.....

Yeah that's all fine and dandy, but closed means closed. It's not just the eagle habitat which is a no brainer, but it's everywhere. All coming up to play in the snow and park anywhere there's a half spot. I get it, but show a smidgeon of respect!

Mountainart, you may be right about the eagles, but that doesn't excuse to countless number of people that park where it's marked no parking and ignore the signs and cross the tape, trespassing where it's marked not to, just to play in stuff that you find in the freezer.

Once 1 or 2 park somewhere that is marked no parking (any where on the mountain), more will follow, clogging up the roadway; Then it takes an extra hour to go a mile or two near the drift park & above Snow Valley.

So, does that excuse their parking illegally or trespassing in marked areas? Leaving trash, etc, etc.

Yet, it's silly eco sensitism as the eagles literally don't care. Eagle nests outside a busy apartment and street next door to where used to live in Kalispell Mt. Eagles would play with local kids putting dead rats on string. The "Eagles might get nervous or stressed by seeing people" is pure sierra club false propoganda.
