Survival Gear & Bug Out Bags

Survival Gear & Bug Out Bags
A Bug out bag is basically a large survival kit that’s filled with everything you need to survive after a disaster. A Bug Out Bag allows you quickly grab what you need should you be forced to evacuate during a disaster. Most experts suggest that your BOB should contain enough supplies to last for at least seventy-two hours. Since most major disasters often disrupt services and normal life for longer than 72 hours, we think it is a good idea to have a Bag that will allow you survive for an indefinite period of time. Make sure your Bag is built to fit your needs; some people may need items that are not listed on this list. Remember that these are just some general guidelines meant to help you get your bag together. Below we discuss some of the items that you may want to include in your Bug Out Bags, as well as some items that will hold up when it really counts. This will depend on a number of factors, such as the area you live in (climate, elevation, etc….)
