Ron Swanson’s Go Bag

If you watched Thursday night’s fantastic Parks and Recreation premiere, you learned that Ron  Swanson had a special emergency “go bag” to be used in case his first ex-wife Tammy should show up in Pawnee. Well, this morning NBC posted a look at what was in Ron’s go bag, as allegedly written by the man himself. There are a few basic items, like Swanson family beef jerky and a compass and then there are a few surprises like The Complete Works of Lord Byron, Volume 4: Letters and Journals of which Ron says:

Lord Byron was one of the greatest poets the world has ever known. Despite that, he had a worthwhile life. He was a boxer; he fought in wars; and he was described by his girlfriend as “mad, bad and dangerous to know.” I like to pass time while I’m alone by reading his correspondences, mostly because he makes fun of all the other poets.

Head over to NBC’s Parks & Recreation site to see what else Ron had packed.
