Bug Out Bag preparation – why worry about such things, anyhow?
When I was a young man, I had the honor of being a member of the Boy Scouts. My parents encouraged me to join scouting. I like to think that they wanted me to get some useful skills and meet new people – they like to say that it was a great way to get me out of their hair. Either way, I spent a number of years camping and learning to love and survive the outdoors.
What does this have to do with a Bug Out Bag you ask? Well to be honest, everything. I have spent years building, in my opinion, the ultimate resource for bugging out. The resource that I am talking about is the mindset of preparedness. What I am going to do is to share that mindset with you now; because if you don’t have the mindset, your chances of surviving a disaster are extremely diminished.
Over the next few pages I am going to take you for a little walk down preparation lane. Along the way we are going to discuss what we need to take, why we need to take it and why it is imperative to make these decisions in advance. This book may not save your life, but if you make your own Bug Out Bag and prepare yourself for the challenges you may face, then YOU SHOULD NOT NEED SAVING.
Read on to find out what to bring while bugging out, in order to give yourself some measures of comfort while living in survival mode.
