Family pictures, bank accounts, insurance info, credit cards info, photo copies of birth, wedding certificates, car titles, ID, driver license and the big thing that not many think to includea€¦a contact list.
Common wisdom dictates that you should have between 400 and 500 dollars in your bug out bag in small bills, a little bit of change wouldna€™t be a bad idea, a little gold and silver.
Everybody has a first aid kit in their bug out bag, and most people concentrate on tourniquets and trauma, broken bones and gunshot wounds and preventing infections and things like that, but in reality youa€™ll have the biggest issues with your stomach.

Posted on October 10, 2013 Written by Prepper Dome Leave a Comment For someone new to being a Survivalist building your first Bug Out Bag can seem like a big task. A Bug Out Bag, (also called a BOB, Get Out of Dodge Bag, GOOD, or 72 Hour Bag) is usually designed to get you out of an emergency situation and allow you to survive self-contained for up to 3 days. To expand your capability or survive longer than a couple of days you will need a water purification system. Obviously you will need a longer term food solution in any type of wide area catastrophe, but for your basic Bug Out Bag backpack meals are a good set up. Your Bug Out Bag clothes should be similar to what you would pack for a weekend backpacking trip. This list could go on for a while and many people would never dream of leaving their Bug Out Bag without twice that much, but in a pinch that set up could get you by for 3 days. If you are going to survive for 3 days you are going to need protection from the elements and a warm dry place to sleep.
Trying to cover everything you need in your Bug Out Bag First Aid Kit is another article entirely to itself, probably several more.
What I will do is recommend that you build your own First Aid Kit instead of buying one of those prepackaged first aid kits that claim to have 1001 things to get you through any emergency.
Plus, building your own first aid kit gives you an intimate knowledge of what it contains and how to use it. Basic Gear sounds repetitive (what have I been talking about?) but it is my category for the things you absolutely cannot live without but don’t really fit well into another category.
Survival Knife – The most used and most versatile tool in your Bug Out Bag is your survival knife.

But avoiding these mistakes will save you money, hone your bag to a do anything be anything platform that can save your life, deliver you safely to your bug out location and serve as a basis for a larger survival system. You think a€?a€™ita€™s a bug out baga€¦the most important think is the bag right?a€™a€™ and there is truth in that but you want to take that decision appropriately, with as much information about what are you going to put into it as you possibly can.

Everybody you read about has been tweaking theirs for months or even years and has a pile of gear built up. A lot of people plan their Bug Out Bag to sustain them for much longer than that, but there is always a limit to what you can carry on your back and a 3 day target is a good place to start. While some are ok, in my experience these types of kits are usually filled with a lot of stuff you are unlikely to need and not enough of the things you will probably need a lot of. How many people buy one of those pre-made set ups and just assume they are prepared because there’s so much crap in it there must be what I need? Many survivalists will not like this list because it is not exhaustive by any means, but again I will say: It will be enough to get you by for a couple of days. Also something as simple as a big walking stick or club can be a strong deterrent for bad guys.
In putting together my own experience with my bug out bags over the years and seeing the kits of others, I came up with a list of 10 mistakes I see common in bug out bags.
Years ago, when I made my first bug out bag I committed most, if not all the mistakes on this list.
The first thing you need to know is how much stuff you are going to put in your bug out bag, how big it needs to be. If you walk out your front door in a bug out situation looking like a marine, then you got some issues with your bug out bag. For the long term skills become very valuable and can really save lives if you run out of supplies.
This kit should include extra strap material, buckles and things like that for your bag, heavy duty high quality patching material, needle and high quality thread. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. It’s hard to know where to start, but if you cover all of the basics in a survival situation you will still be much better off that 99% of the people. Over the years, as I reassessed my bug out situation, my needs of change, I recognized lots of these mistakes and began correcting them.
If youa€™re all dressed in camouflage and you have a big tactical military bag on your back, an AR 15 in your hands and a shotgun strapped to the sidea€¦trust mea€¦thata€™s not the way.
Regularly, when you see bug out bags that are relying too heavily on bushcraft and survival skills they dona€™t have nearly enough solid life preserving equipment in thema€¦not enough food, not enough water to get them from point A to point B or from safe to safer to safest as quickly as possible.
Practice it with your family so that when something happens and disaster strikes youa€™re out and youa€™re on your way to get to your safe place as quickly as you can get. Leta€™s assume that the house catches fire and you have to leave immediately I will have information that I can use to help get our lives back together as quickly as possible.
What I like to see in a bug out bag is fiber pills and the individually packed fiber drink mixes. If youa€™re thinking about making your first bug out bag (and everyone should have one), or perhaps you already have one and youa€™re looking for inspiration on how to do it better hopefully this article will help. Assess what are the things you need to bring with you and buy the bag thata€™s going to fit all that stuff properly and work well for you.

Ita€™s a dangerous assumption to make that youa€™re going to get everything you need along the way. The best way to do that is to know where youa€™re going, how youa€™re gonna get there and be well practiced in knowing how long is going to take, knowing exactly what youa€™re gonna need along the way. If you have not practiced with your bag and you cannot carry your bag then you missed the point of bugging out. If you react to disaster like everybody else you might be going the same way everybody else is going and youa€™re not going to be by yourself so you have to deal with that. Those are really good in keeping you fiber intake up and your gut happy.You can add Pepto-Bismol, Imodium AD ( ad a good quantity in case youa€™ll have a sever diarrhea) , ginger tablets for nausea. The goal of any bug out is to avoid conflict and reach your destination as fast and as safe as possible.
If you buy the bug out bag first youa€™ll have the tendency to fill it up to the gills and then is way too heavy or you buy one that is too small and is not going to fit everything that you need. Most preppers live in urban and suburban areas, so you want to blend in with that as much as possible. There are going to be others that think the same as you, so dona€™t just assume that youa€™re gonna be that one to do it, youa€™re gonna be the one thata€™s gonna make it, youa€™re gonna be the one thata€™s gonna survive. If things go wrong you do have your bug out bag to help you out but youa€™re main goal is to get from point A in point B as quickly as possible. Especially if you have a family with you dona€™t assume that you can compensate for them in a disaster.
Diarrhea, vomiting, constipation are all things that can incapacitate you very quickly and can kill you in a couple of days so keep a good amount of these medicines in your bug out bag. My second advice is to avoid buying your bug out bag on the internet without having any experience with it. If you look, for instance, at special forces Navy Seals in Afghanistan most of the times you see them theya€™re gonna be wearing indigenous clothing, growing beards and hair  to blend in.
Keep in mind that once you leave your house you have voluntarily made yourself a refugee, a well prepared refugee, but still a refugee and you want to be in that situation for a shorter time as humanly possible.
Take 10-15 miles hikes with your bag to see if it fits you well, if it is too heavy or injures you. Keep all this stuff as a separate kit in your bug out bag so you can reach to it fast in case you need it. If the neat arises you really want to be able to go from your not safe place to your safe place as quickly and safely as possible. Involve all your family testing them too, otherwise youa€™ll have to face all these problems when you really need to get to your bug out location and the bag will become a problem instead of helping you to get there safe. So if youa€™re a prepper and you need to do a bug out bag then they need to do it too and if youa€™re going to practice then they need to do it too.
In case your bug out bag brakes and you cana€™t carry your stuff is not going to do you any good. They need to know what is going on, how to get there, they need to know exactly how to react in different scenarios. Only a well made plan and a proper execution of the plan will safely get you to your bug out location and your bug out bag will increase your likelihood of survival. So youa€™re not a lone wolf, youa€™re not going to be alone because your family is going to be with you. The bag may seem very comfortable for you but may be very uncomfortable and cause pains and discomfort for your kids or wife.
Surplus military equipments are great deals, durable and therea€™s no problem working some of that into your gear.
The point here is that a bag that doesna€™t fit and ride well can cause you injuries and certainly not going to help you at all.
Certainly you want to have a firearm with you by all means, a concealed carry weapon or something.
