  Having a bug out bag packed and ready to go is often one of the first things a new survivalist learns.  It is a simple step which can dramatically improve the likelihood of survival in an emergency because you’ll have enough food, water, first aid equipment and other items to get you through those critical first few days of a disaster.  Keeping a bug out bag packed and ready to go in your home is essential, but what about the 8-10 hours per day you’re spending away from the house? If a disaster strikes while you’re at work, the store or any other location, it might not be safe or even possible to return to your home to get […]

Not every bag is the same, your needs will be different from someone else’s and the contents will vary depending on typical weather conditions in your area.

We all think if something terrible happens tomorrow we will be able to jump in the car and go get our children and take them to safety.
