Bug Out Bag Based on Scandinavian Gear 65L Backpack


I was recently contacted by the company Scandinavian Gear and asked if I was interested in reviewing their 65 Liter pack. I get quite a few requests to review products, and am fairly picky about what I choose to review. This product peaked my interest for two reasons. First, I have been looking for a better quality pack to use as my BOB as my current bag is very uncomfortable. Second, and importantly, this is a 65 Liter bag for under $100!!

Join me today as I take a quick look at this excellent quality pack for the money, and review what is in my primary family BOB.

The quality on the backpack is more than acceptable for the money, and I do recommend this pack as not just a BOB, but for general backpacking as well. In fact, I will be taking it out on an overnight trip soon I liked it so much! Here is a link if you are interested in checking it out.

Perfect Paleo Bacon Meatloaf

FullSizeRender 2_Fotor

For some reason my kids have never really liked meatloaf, and I have never understood that!  They like hamburgers without the bun…what’s the difference?!  Oh well, I decided to pull out a secret weapon to make this one; Bacon 🙂


1 pound ground beef

1 pound ground pork

1/4 cup almond meal

2 Tbsp tomato paste

1 Tsp Onion Powder

1 Tsp Garlic Powder

1 Tbsp Salt

1 Egg Lightly Beaten

1 Pound of Bacon


  1. In a large mixing bowl mix beef, pork, almond meal, tomato paste, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and egg until combined.  Do not over mix.
  2. Form meat mixture into a free form loaf on a baking dish lined with foil.
  3. Wrap the loaf with the full package of bacon in any way you wish, just make sure it’s fully covered, and you use it all!
  4. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 45 minutes, or until cooked through and bacon is crisp.
  5. Let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
