The Prepared Prepper's Cookbook: Over 170 Pages of Food Storage Tips, and Recipes From Preppers All Over America! There are 2 ALICE Packs that are semi-packed and ready to be filled and loaded in about 5-10 minutes.
Bottom line, you need a few lines of defense, you need redundancy (2 is 1, 1 is none) in supplies and gear, you also need to have the ability to cross-load or purpose-load your gear. YEa, I didnt do any photos either, but something I never see people talk about is updates and rotations. Since I keep my preparedness plans discreet it is not often I get to see the BOB’s created by others. I don’t have photos, but my BOB package consists of a tactical vest with pistol belt to contain defensive items as well as a primary back pack for other gear.
Now, as to my excuse for not contributing photos of my own BOB and GOOD bag…I was too lazy.
I had a lot going on, the election was approaching quickly, and I just didn’t have time to dig out my gear and photograph it. MD, please call for BOB photos again after the new year, I promise I’ll send you more photos than you can handle.
This is a point I constantly have to remind myself about lest I create a BOB that is too heavy to carry anywhere. My BOB is designed to be more than a single-use item which gets me from Point A to B, for I want it to also get me from Point B to C, C to D, and D to E (if necessary). I pack heavy since the odds are I will be tossing my BOB in a vehicle, but I can also carry a heavy pack for a short distance of a few miles. We usually have three to four rescue dogs, plus a cat or two, and I know that when we lost one, it is painful. I agree 100% that it is a wonderful idea for people to post pictures of their Bug Out Kits and discuss the contents of their Bug Out Bags because someone might have overlooked an important item when creating their Bug Out Bag and viewing what others have in their Bug Out Bag gives them an opportunity to discover something they might have missed. Why am I not surprised that the only BOB that I have ever seen with a gun cleaning kit is my own. Please help support this site by going through the above link every time that you shop at Amazon. Over the years he has studied all facets of survivalism, and has learned works and, more importantly, what does not work. A bug-out bag is a portable, carefully-curated collection of items necessary to effectively evacuate and survive for at least 72 hours during an emergency. Ia€™m talking about a a€?Bug-Out Bag,a€? a ready-to-grab-at-anytime kit that gets you out the door and long gone, quickly and safely, when things go south.
Even though you probably arena€™t going to have a foreign hit squad on your trail, or Federal agents ready to kick in your door, there are still a number of situations where the Average Joe needs to have a bug-out bag a€” or a a€?Get Home Baga€? (see below) a€” packed and ready to go. So I spoke with Creek Stewart, survival skills trainer, owner of Willow Haven Outdoor, and author of the upcoming book, Build the Perfect Bug-Out Bag: Your 72 Hour Disaster Survival Kit (May 12, Betterway Books), to find out what those situations are, and what we city-dwellers need to have to create an Urban Survival Bug-Out bag thata€™ll keep us from resorting to a€?Lord of the Fliesa€?a€¦ for 3 or 4 days at least. If youa€™re forced out of your home and need to survive on your own for at least 72 hours, Stewart says to remember the Core 4 Basic Human Survival Needs: Shelter, Water, Fire and Food a€“ and to make sure your bag covers them all.


Stewart says to keep in mind the first bug-out bag you grab may actually be a a€?Get Home Baga€? a€” providing you the essentials you need to get out of a stricken city and home to your family.
Mass chaos and exodus would make getting from work to home very complicated, and a disaster-stricken city is a very dangerous place.A So, just as military pilots have a a€?get-home survival kita€? packed in their cock-pit, Stewart recommends having a a€?Get Home Baga€? ready to go at your office or in your car.
A Get Home Bag is simply a down-sized version of the Bug-Out Bag designed to do just that a€“ get you home safely.A It will be smaller and have fewer supplies a€” just the necessities to get you through and out of ground zero. Stewart told me having Bug-Out bags at the ready isna€™t about becoming a crazy survivalist in the woods or having a bunker mentality. Information for preppers on all aspects of emergency preparedness, prepping and food storage.
It has been a long time since I have posted a suggested list for the contents of a 72 hour kit or bug out bag. FOOD -Three days’ supply of food minimum, (I carry more) to be determined by size and age of family and personal needs.
Aquamira Tablets, 4-year shelf life, or a good quality water filter like the one made by Aquamira, Katadyn or First Need. BlastMatch, Strike Force, Sparkie or varies fire steels are all commercial manufactured fire starters that will work after having been wet.
CLOTHING is an item that depends on the area in which you reside, and the time of the year. Keep in mind that this is just a suggested list; yours will vary depending on your age, health, strength, physical conditioning, experience, skill levels and local conditions (weather).

The BOB or GMHB is a living object of constant change not a closet queen to be admired by others while on display.
An important factor is the weight of your kit and your ability to get out of your vehicle, walk and carry it.
It helps you look at your vulnerability and help you prioritize according to the situation that is projected to be encountered. You can’t prepare for every possible contingency, but you can prepare for some things that are either likely or really catastrophic. Although I submitted my photos of my dog’s BOB, I realized that I really needed to update the contents. Yall might want to think about that BEFORE you spend a week or so hunting for food and your gun jams as soon as someone decides they want what you have.

Sanitation: Especially in a a€?Grid Downa€? scenario without working water, sewers and trash services, sanitation (and the associated risks) will become a major concern. Rioting, Looting, Armed Violence: Desperation and lack of order bring out the worst in some people.
I like the Aquamira’s Frontier Pro which only weights 2 oz and will filter 50 gallons of water. Be sure and pack warm clothes, if you have to stay outside all night it can get cold even when it seems hot during the day. I agree that canned foods are too heavy, but the mylar pouches of tuna, SPAM and other meats are great, and far cheaper than MRE’s. I know water is heavy (8lbs per gallon) but I keep a full 1 liter bottle with my pack at all times. They can also be carried independently or can become stand alone if one or the other is stashed temporarily, left or lost.
Most everything I’ve tried to duplicate between the wifes and my packs plus extra in a box to go in the vehicle(s) if needed.

I bag them up in 2 cup servings, then all I have to do is add 2 cups of hot water, and be eating (right out of the bag) in just a few minutes.
I have thought much about theses issues and my bigger issues stem with issues that stem from having a family and a low income.
