Is Your Bug Out Bag All Wrong? It Could Be, Here’s Why…
Being ready and able to “bug out” or evacuate from a disaster is no easy task and doing so on foot surely makes a bug out situation THAT much more difficult. Let’s hope you never have to evacuate like this, but if you do, then you ought to get it right and having your bug out bag gear correct is a great first step… a step which most people (even “experts”) get wrong.
Sadly, most every bug out bag list has some unwritten expectation that you’re going to be evacuating into or through a plentiful nearby wilderness with fish to catch, streams to rest alongside, mountains to navigate, and debris huts to build.
This just isn’t the case for most of us.
Most Americans are going to be slogging their way through the urban “jungle” with nothing to catch for food or even a good source of water to drink! There may even be potentially unrecognizable building and roads as well as a shortage of safe shelter spots to get out of the elements. Sadly, there will even be unprepared and desperate people looking for any way to survive which could mean looking to YOU for whatever you may be able to provide… willingly or not.
These juxtapositions in bug out environments are quite different and should be treated as such.
We, therefore, need to plan differently for a bug out in suburbia as opposed to the wilderness. Throw out old notions of stuffing your bag with fishing kits, hydration bladders, axes, saws, and tents.
If you live anywhere near a city or town and no expectation of actually evacuating into the wilderness, then it’s time get your bug out bag right with these 53 essentials you won’t want to be without.
