The subject of bugging out and bug out bags (some preppers refer to this kit as a bug out backpack) is a popular one and for good reason, disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes , flash floods or other natural disaster, could force survivors to “head for the hills” in search of safer ground. So whether you’re new to the idea of bugging out, or you’ve been in our neck of the woods for a while now, there’s most likely something you can take away from the following article from Steve over at journeytosustainability.com. 

Check out a few of these Items on Steve’s B.O.B list:

  • Food
  • Tools
  • First Aid
  • Toiletries
  • Clothes 
  • Documents

The main goal of having a 72 hour bag is to be equipped to survive a three day period; and in this case, survival is dependent upon you. Therefore, the 72 hour bag should be pre-assembled and ready to go as well as have a 72 hour bag separately for the vehicle. Personally speaking, when I assembled my family’s bug out bags it took a few hours to run through the house getting all the supplies in order. If I was in a time sensitive situation, I would have forgotten half of the items I packed. It’s essential that your B.O.Bs (Bug Out Bags) are ready to go. Also, check out Steve’s video at the bottom of his article! Click the link below to grab all of the information you need!
