Holy God in Heaven! I didn't run around in Iraq with this much stuff! I'm going to go through this the only way I know how. One at a time. Forgive me if I end up making you feel stupid.Your more than welcome to do the same thing to anything I say.

I would start off with this as the rudimentary basic/mandatory load out:
-There is nothing rudimentary, basic, and or mandatory about this.

Daypack - do not use military camouflage, use civilian or LE gear
-As opposed to my night pack?

Cover story - this is the most important part of your kit, will go over it later
-I knew I forgot something. Heaven forbid I have to make one up on the spot. "Can you hang on just a moment, Officer? I left my cover story in my truck."

Notebook & pen
-To write down my cover story so I don't forget it.

Camera(s)
-This is something you deem mandatory?

Tripod(s)
-Really? Multiple tripods?

Audio/video essentials
-Uhhh... What? I'm supposed to pack a tv and stereo in my daypack?

Water
-ok. Can't argue this one.

Rations/energy bars
-Or this one.

Multi tool
-No. You got a good one here too.

Knife, folding
-Sense, common

Light(s)
-the better to see you with, my dear.

Hand sanitizer
-Or you could just... you know... NOT stick your hands in your mouth after crawling through the sewer.

1st aid kit
-If you do something bad enough that requires first aid, you probably won't be able to fix it with a first aid kit. If you just scraped your knee, man up and put a Spiderman band-aid on it when you get home. Or just rub some hand sanitizer on it till then.

Bug spray - seasonal
-I refer you to my earlier "man up" statement.

GPS/compass
-So that when I'm standing in an abandoned building, I'll know which wall is the North wall.

Radio
-... who's on the other end of it? Do I just talk to myself?

Gloves
-This makes more sense than hand sanitizer. But I am surprised you didn't put "gloves, latex under gloves, leather".

Toque - seasonal
-.... this has been touched on enough.

Balaclava - seasonal
-Also, your ninja sword, throwing stars, and blowgun.

Rain Jacket
-I would just suggest if you have a problem with rain, don't go exploring in it.

Dog/bear repellant
-Really? Bear repellant? BEAR repellant!? Ooh! How bout a pointy stick!? That way I can try to stab myself in the brain through my eye when all I managed to do was piss off a 500 pound animal with claws and teeth with my BEAR REPELLANT!

Smokes & matches
-Again, this falls under mandatory? What about for people that don't smoke? Might as well have added "crack pipe". I don't smoke crack but hey, it might be handy to have. You never know.

For "Low level entry":
-you seem to have confused this list with your "what to bring along to kidnap someone" list.

Facemask
-So they can't pick you out of a line-up.

Eye protection
-For when the cops mace you.

Latex gloves
-So you don't leave fingerprints.

Glow sticks
-For throwing a rave.

Chalk
-For the outline of your body after you try to use your BEAR repellent!

Para cord
-I'm assuming you mean 550 cord, though I still can't figure out why you would need it. In case the cops forgot thier handcuffs?

Duct tape
-OH! This is for the forgotten handcuffs! Then why do I need the para cord? To hang myself with instead of allowing myself to be captured? You should have just put "cyanide pill hidden in fake tooth".

For "High level of entry":
-Oh! ok. now I see what your doing. Your talking about high and low level stuff as actual elevation words. Gotcha. ok. Well let's see what we have for here...

Fence climbing tools
-your hands and feet? Did I leave those in the car with my cover story?

Knife, fixed
-...Why is this needed to climb a fence? Should have put "hook, grappling".

Binoculars
-To look at where your going to climb to?

Elbow/knee pads
-AHH! The best thing you've come up with yet! For when you try to bribe the cops with a blowjob!

For "Severe breeching":
-Define for me "severe breaching". Cuz to me it seems like "severe breaching" would just lead to "severe bruising" and 'severe bleeding".

Rope
-To quote the Boondock Saints, "It's ridiculous! Probably based on some stupid shit ya saw in a movie! And here I am AGAIN all tyin' myself up with rope! What is the deal with you and rope? Honestly!"

Bump helmet
-Also effective, ducking.

Harness
-A sex swing? I guess in case the bribe kneepad thing didn't work.

Harness essentials
-Assless leather chaps and a ball gag.

Barbed wire gloves
...ok. I know what your talking about from stringing C-wire with the Army. But why in the hell would a civilian need these? Barbed wire is not that bad that you need razor wire gloves. And folks, if you come across razor wire, your probably breaking into an active prison. I suggest leaving it alone. But if you decide to do it anyway, you can pick up some nifty barbed wire gloves at your local Wal-Mart. You'll find them right next to the balaclavas and the cans of BEAR REPELLENT!

...And that's it for me. I'm done...

LMAO! Yes, I have to admit that my camera and tripod (not tripodS) are a must for me and I take them just about everywhere I go. Also, a light and some water....oh yeah, and the pepper spray. I think I could manage without all that other crap weighing me down...especially after experiencing what it's like to run with a full back-pack faster than I've ever ran in my life...I realized I didn't need 90% of the crap that was in that back-pack. All it did was weigh me down and make it harder to run.

ok. The camera, I'll give you. And there were a couple of good ones in there. But the majority of that was crap.

for those that don't get the pepper spray comment, feel free to check in the "Rookie Forum" under the "How to deal with crackheads" thread. =)

You carry a laptop around while you explore? And a vest? What do you keep in there? Granola Bars?

Stealth cam as in like....HIDDEN IN YOUR NERD GLASSES?!

No, I live off the land, in many of my more remote explores I am able to hunt and forage. In the city I just grab a street meat before I go into a building.

I am into high tech infiltration. There are times where less is more, and others where it is go big or go hone. I have a small camera which no one would even notice.

Once again, what the hell people?! Infiltrators. Spotters. This is not a Black Op backed by a foreign government to assassinate someone. It's poking around a building!

So wait. Your a high tech hippie? You take your laptop out and plug it into a tree. Then you radio your "infiltrators" as to where the wild game is that you have spotted on Google Earth so that you can catch it and live off the land? You might actually be making my brain hurt more than the other guy I just commented on a few hours ago! If nothing else I would have read where I tore his kit apart and thought to myself, this might not be the time to post this. And what are you "high tech infiltrating" out somewhere where it is remote enough to live off the land? Does it really take scanning the police band to infiltrate some guys deer stand?

Yeah he's a pretty high-tech dude, this Paulpa. I had the joy of speaking with him in chat tonight.

[23:43:45] <Therrin> i have not
[23:44:12] <paulpa> where is your hunting grounds?

[23:44:45] <paulpa> OIC
[23:44:49] <Therrin> do you?
[23:44:55] <paulpa> ?
[23:45:05] <Therrin> my local grounds consist of most of southern california though
[23:45:28] <Therrin> and yourself?
[23:45:38] <paulpa> The golden horseshoe
[23:45:44] <paulpa> at least the northern half
[23:46:46] <Therrin> i should've just said "southern half of 'the valley' " to you, if thats all the finer response that i get in reply

[23:59:19] <metawaffle> What sort of stuff are you into, Paulpa?
[23:59:46] <paulpa> Cycling, swimming, geocaching. Basically outdoor activity
[00:00:15] <Therrin> scuba? rock climbing? orienteering? backpacking? rappelling and rope ascending?
[00:00:23] <metawaffle> Therrin is a climbing guy
[00:00:26] <metawaffle> He gets excited
[00:01:14] <paulpa> I have done climbing and belaying before, but always in a gym. Scuba, I am planning on getting my licence. I do bikepacking which is fun.
[00:01:50] <metawaffle> Bikepacking?
[00:02:04] <Therrin> its not a license, its a certification
[00:02:07] <paulpa> Backpacking but with a bike
[00:02:13] <Therrin> ....
[00:02:20] * Therrin facepalms paulpa

[00:05:09] <paulpa> My next trip is from Senneterre Quebec to Cobalt Ontario, it is summer 2011
[00:05:51] <paulpa> 14 days of greuling cycling, couch surfing, squatting and illegal tenting.
[00:05:59] <metawaffle> Awesome
[00:06:09] <paulpa> it sure is
[00:06:41] <paulpa> I GTG, hopefully I can meet some locals
[00:06:50] <Therrin> illegal tenting? is this akin to rubbing one out in public places?
[00:07:42] <paulpa> It is pitching wherever I see fit

"Illegal tenting", coming to an abandonment near you this spring!

Oh hey! I've done this. Just without the cycling, squatting, and illegal tenting. So really it was just 14 days sitting on my couch going back and forth between Xbox games. I think I played a game though about illegal tenting. It's all the rage with... the homeless? ok. I was on a roll and then I lost it.

On a side note though, my dad always said only girls squat. Boys just stand up and do it.

How about we make it a little simpler:

A simple pair of FRS radios or simple cell phone text messages if you need to maintain touch with other explorers. Handheld CB radios are open to anyone listening and cost more than FRS.

I don't know about you but if I'm driving to an abandoned location I'll be fucked if I'm going to sit outside and be a spotter especially if there are only two of us.

A laptop is only as good as having internet with it, which is only as good as finding the local police agency on the internet if they even offer live feeds, which is only as good as their radio system (digital trunked systems are usually encrypted).

A first aid kit is a good idea as well given the broken glass, protruding nails, etc.

GPS, Hand sanitizer, pen, paper, can all wait in the car.

You people are making it complicated.

Okay, this is a serious topic, so I'll post what I bring:

-camera
-tripod
-pants
-wallet and contents thereof
-nitro glycerin (in case I have severe chest pains inside an abandonment)
-keys
-pen
-pack of tissues (in the event of bowel evacuation)
-swiss army knife with bottle opener
-beers?
-socks
-boots
-shirt
-jacket
-rape mask(s)
-(optional) broken flashlight
-(optional) scooter (best getaway vehicle possible)

And that should do it.

I believe the correct term is "prohobo".

reckless thoughts abide; anachronistic and impulsive.
