It seems like everyone is talking about it. The apocalypse, that is. Well, I’m not going to be left out of the conversation! Sure, I’m just a millennial who’s never had to deal with anything more serious than an environmental disaster or two (or three). But now that “the end” might actually be nigh, I figure it’s time to get prepared and start my bug-out bag! As a prepper on a budget, where do you even begin? It turns out there are tons of great resources for preppers on the cheap–like this blog post!–so let me share some of what I’ve learned so far…
Can’t wait to tell all my friends about this great tip for beginners!
1. What should I include in my bug out bag?
2. What kind of bug out bags are available on the market?
3. Do you have a favorite brand or store for buying a bug out bag?
4. Is there additional gear that I should bring to go with my bug out bag?
5. How did you pack up your first bug-out bag and get it ready for an emergency situation like those often seen on survival shows or disaster films?”
Over the next few weeks, I will be documenting my progress with regards to building up a Bug Out Bag. What is included in your bag? The first thing you should consider when assembling one of these kits (aside from what gear best suits your needs) is choosing an appropriate pack for carrying it all. For me this means going back to basics and using something that already has proven its strength: military-style surplus ALICE packs are durable, ergonomic on long hikes if necessary, customizable as needed…
I can’t wait until we get our hands dirty together!
Get the good stuff without breaking a sweat.
I’ve got lots of other backpacks, but it was the ALICE that won me over. It is heavy duty and durable so I know it will last through a lot more than just an emergency situation. Plus, because its designed for military use – especially in combat situations – you can count on your pack to be reliable even if all else fails around you!
The next time SHTF? You don’t have to worry about missing out- this bag has everything covered from top to bottom with pockets galore and straps everywhere: perfect for carrying sleeping bags or clothes while keeping those pesky critters away during emergencies when bugs are crawling up every which way they please! This rugged beast comes equipped with 2 side compression straps as well as
So what are your thoughts on whether it is better to have a bug out bag with or without the frame? I think so far my best advice would be to get one that has both. A lot of people say you need more than just clothes in there, and if you are not sure about where you will end up at night then make sure to pack warm clothes too! Some other things worth packing include fire starting materials, survival flash drive (5 dollar preps), fishing gear for when all else fails as well as first aid supplies and sewing items which could come in handy during an emergency situation. As always don’t forget guns cleaning kits and poison snake bite treatments like The Sawyer Extractor kit- these can save lives.
We’ve all heard of the “bucket list” and now you can add a collapsible bucket to that list. These buckets are perfect for camping trips or other outdoor activities because they fold up into small size, which saves on storage space when not in use. They also double as an emergency water container if there’s no clean drinking water around! But don’t forget your Collapsible Water Bottle too – it won’t break like glass bottles might and is just as easy to carry along with you wherever you go!
