The local economy to the rescue!  :D
TACTICAL TAILOR Quality Tactical Gear for Military and Law Enforcement - Malice Packs

EDIT: OK, you used to be able to send them your ALICE and they'd mod her for you. Trying to find that. I can always take some of my precious free time and go ask, if you want.

Either would do, and you can get decent waist belts for the ALICE...

If the pack will be spending most of the time in a vehicle you might look for an internal frame pack...
What's In Your BOB? / Which pack for a BOB/Hurricane Evac Pack

OK, so I have two packs that I'm thinking about kitting up for my BOB/Hurricane Evac Pack.

The first is my 25+ year old REI external frame backpacking pack.  On the plus side, it's got plenty of space for stuff - sleeping bag, pad, etc - plus lots of pockets for a stove, first aid kit, water bottle, etc.  It also has great shoulder straps and a well padded hip belt, so I can hike with it for a good while.  It was built and bought for backpacking, back when I was a Scout.  On the downside, it's easily big enough to overload, and would take up a good amount of space in our minivan if that's our only evac vehicle. (If we take both vehicles, cube becomes largely a non-issue, since #2 is a truck.)

The second is my trusty ALICE pack (Large.)  It also has lots of space, but not as compartmentalized as the REI pack.  While the shoulder straps aren't as good and it lacks a functional waist belt, it has the virtue of being extremely tough and rugged.  It also has ALICE clip attachment points that allow some degree of customization in what goes on the outside.

Right now I'm leaning in the direction of the REI pack, but I could easily be swayed the other direction.

And I pray that I won't need either.

Legislative Update from Olympia, 20 February 201
Rep. Matt Shea (R-4) and 41 other House members (40 Republicans and two Democrats) filed HB 2164, a bill that would exempt almost everyone from the background check provisions of I-594.  The bill exempts, among others, law enforcement, corrections and security officers, CPL holders, active duty military, honorably retired military, members of a variety of veterans organizations, all certified firearm safety instructors, etc, etc.  The bill was assigned for action to the House Judiciary Committee, where it can be considered dead on arrival.  Bills like this (and many others filed this session) make nice statements of principal, but stand almost no chance of passage, or even of serious consideration.  Recall it takes a 2/3 vote of each chamber of the legislature to pass any bill amending a newly-passed initiative.

For those who have not seen it, this:

And for this week, you can download a free version of the ebook.  I'm about half-way through it, nothing too earth shattering (for most of us) but some food for thought.

If you need any help proof reading, I'm available!

I'm very good with MS Word in Track Changes mode. :P
You're on.

As long as you're ok with Word 2010. We just got Word 2013 forced on us at work and it blows goats.

Like I said with the last one, getting the formatting right was increasingly difficult, so I'll just post a link to my blog.

Joe has sent out the weekly GOAL Post.  
My own comment, based on stuff I have heard others say: I, too, would prefer for I594 to be repealed in it's entirety. Note that there are two bills listed which would do that, plus the lawsuit that has been filed. But the first bill to repeal requires a two thirds majority in the legislature, and the other calls for an additional referendum; while the Second Amendment has been doing well in the courts, there is no guarantee. So the  strategy of also seeking to whittle away at I594 bit by bit is not, in itself, evil or wrong-headed.Unless you're the sort who thinks that one can nullify a law by disobeying it en masse, in which case, please explain to me why speed limits are still in effect?

Holy carp, that formatted badly.
And it took me so long to edit that the editing period expired.

For a readable version, please visit my blog: The Clue Meter: GOAL Post 2015-5

I believe that, in future, I'll simply post a link to the blog rather than attempt to post the entire thing here, possibly with a short excerpt of the narrative, in accordance with standard "fair usage" and still being within Joe's statement that the entire GOAL Post be shared "in it's entirety and without textual modification."
