Packing a tent? Rv? or a Travel Trailor? Is this your start, or are you just going too buggout and make do with what you find when you get there. Just something to ponder. Personaly, I like my used, beat up old travel trailor. Not much vested, so if lost, no big deal. Room, warm, dry, and makes a great staging area for further things. Even though I have materials and skills for improvised shelter, the travel trailor still makes for an easy, early out. Just looks like a weekend camping trip with the dogs.
