    Should you keep copies of personal documents in your B.O.B.? Birth certificates, social security, license, etc...? What if there is a nuclear war? Mass destruction? Bio-warfare?

    personally i'm only bugging out when things have "gone to hell in a handcart" and the less information that might fall into the hands of the undesireables the better!

    But once the dust settles and they start to rebuild society you don't think it would be important? I go back and forth. I think i should have them but if my B.O.B. ever gets stolen then i have to worry about identity theft.

    identity theft is what I was referring to, maybe have these documents hidden in a locked sealed box cached somewhere?
    i'm not too bothered about rebuilding society, if it ever went down the pan it'll be a long time before anything could be rebuilt, if ever, don't see it happening myself.

    Well we don't keep ours in our packs, simply not the room & it would be inconvenient. We do keep them all in one place in case of bushfires so we can grab them & leave if we have to.

    My documents and such is in a fireproof box inside a big steel gun safe. I also keep the paper cash in that too. Since I am bugging in if they get to that then that means that I don't care anymore because I'll be dead. I have considered having them copied and miniaturized but what would it matter?

    If your just being prepared, probably wouldn't hurt to have copies. Maybe stored in a couple hidden cashes.

    if its a minor event I've got them to hand, if its the big one I don't really care, I doubt if there will be anyone left who wants to see them so who cares?

    Chance favors the prepared mind.
    Not knowing if, when or what kind of event we may face, prudence suggests a small chore like duplicating & safely storing a few documents could be beneficial down the road.

    I've done the minor events same as many here have, several times over.
    if its the big one, other people not knowing who I am might be an advantage!!:p

    I don't have any known enemies. Least I hope not. So I generally don't worry about who knows who I am. Save one. Big brother. My initial concern ( & still remains one) when I applied for CCDW permit. I always want to be perfectly legal, so I have the permit. Knowing full well that one day it's possible Big brother may knock on my door because I have that very permit.
    I heard someone say once " Paranoia is merely self preservation measured on a very fine scale."
    Chew on that for a while my friends ;)

    There are many levels of disaster. I would recommend scanning images of all those personal documents and keeping them on a thumb drive--possibly an encrypted thumb drive. I'd also keep insurance documents and a home inventory up in the cloud. Finally, I'd recommend keeping all those important personal documents in a "fireproof" lock box or safe at home. In a disaster, you could take one or both if you need to evacuate.

    I do keep them in a locked , fireproof safe. But scanming them to a thumb rive is a great idea.
