There are many concepts and opinions on what should be in a bug out bag and what shouldn’t be. There are a few basics that should be in every bug out bag as a basic starting point. There are ten essentials. The first is a self defense weapon of your choice. The second is medicines for varying situations. Next is water and food items. The food should be energy bars to provide essentials. The other essentials are a knife, flashlight, cell phone/radio, a firestarter, and some seasonal clothing. The final item is a tarp and some cord.
- Call this back to basics, or getting started from the get-go, but there are as many varieties of opinions on bug out bag contents as cats have lives.
- Then there are the definitions of exactly what constitutes a bug out bag, but no two preppers or survivalists bags are the same much less their contents.
- My idea of a Bug Out Bag is a single source medium sized bag with the bare minimum of supplies to last 24-48 hours with some potential stretch.
