I live in the outskirts of Los Angeles and work in West Los Angeles (roughly 15 miles), and when we are hit with an earthquake, the roads will be most likely damaged, or blocked, so I most likely I will be walking home.
    I do, in fact, routinely backpack with 30-35 lbs of gear in the Osprey pack. That includes NO water. Water varies just like gear.
    But I wasn't saying what I or you should do. I was questioning the 40 Liters of water in your car. I get it now (thanks Chubbs103...). You meant ounces. My caffeine hadn't hit yet when I read that and I wasn't sure why you had so much water.

    Personally, there are 5 in my family and yes, we usually have 2 (daughter) to 6 (me at 6'7" and 270lbs when in best form) LITERS each.

    Here is what I have, the ten "C"'s
    1. 50 feet of Paracord
    2. 2 40 Ouch klean kanteen. also a Jones Stephens 4-Way Valve Stem Lawn Faucet. and life straw
    3. ZT folding knife, a fixed blade. and a multi-tool
    4. 2-3 bic liters, and a fire striker
    5. one or two bandannas and/or a shemagh
    6. ~7-10 feet of duct tape
    7. Olight M1X Striker Compact light, with 3 sets of CR123 batteries
    8. Military Style Ripstop Nylon Poncho Size: 55 x 90
    9. Compass, and maps of my local areas.
    10. heavy duty sewing kit.

    Extra stuff:

    I have a medical kit for each vehicle. I have ETON FRX2 HAND TURBINE CRANK AM FM WEATHER RADIO.

    Also, a pair of pants, long sleeve shirt, and sweater, two pairs of undergarments and two pairs of socks. and a pair of Merrell shoes. also, a pair of contacts, glasses, and medications.

    Also have food, such as I have two MRE's in my vehicle, along with other package food items.

    I carry most of my equipment in a Maxpedition Beefy Pocket Organizer Black. and all this in a Cannae Legion elite pack. With all my gear in my pack is weighing at 23.75 lbs. ~26lbs with water.
    Why three knives? I Love knives and remember well my team leader going through my pack and taking several spares out to be left in the rear. I did not need a Kbar an EK combat knife, Gerber boot knife!bayonet and leatherman.
