What is in your backpack?
< on 6/5/2018 2:28 PM >
Posted on Forum: UER ForumQuote
I am curious as to what people carry on explores. I don't carry a backpack, but probably should. I do carry a Camelbak water bladder pack, but it doesn't have any real cargo space. Besides water, I carry a few items in my pockets

Cell phone
2 waterproof LED flashlights
Pocket knife
Survival bracelet with compass
Gloves

Back in the Jeep there is always a Bug Out Bag, first aid, dry clothes, and shoes.

Granted Milwaukee does not have tons of abandonment, aside from lots of houses and small businesses in terrible neighborhoods. Here in the city, I mostly drain. Hence the short list.

What do you carry? What should we ALL carry?



Give abandonment a reason for its sacrificial reclamation to nature. Love it. Remember it. Take a picture. Share it. Leave the decay to nature.

I don't carry a backpack because I don't want to look like a backpacker.

My bag has:
-camera
-remote shutter
-gopro
-flashlight
-toilet paper
-cat food
-media credentials
-gloves
-facemask
-kazoo (don't go through airport security with one of them)


I travel light in summer.

Mostly beer and flashlights.

Camera stuff, if I'm taking pictures.

I'm going to start doing this now. Do you use metal or plastic ties?

I once knew of a subway vent that was secured only by zipties. I found a store that sold the same kind, and then all I had to do was show up, snip the current ones off, go down, come out, and put my own in place.

But when I returned to the scene, I found the zipties had already been removed anyway and I was free to go in.

Lol, here's to hoping the trend of securing entry-points with zipties catches on!
