With the way things seem to be going in the world today, being prepared is more important than ever.
Some may call it paranoia, others call it unnecessary planning, I call it being prepared and peace of mind.Think about it, if something happens from a simple car accident in the middle of winter or an earthquake isn’t it better to have a sense of preparation rather than panic as most others will do because you had the foresight to plan ahead?And let’s say the worst case scenario, doesn’t happen and life goes on as usual, it is still helpful to have an emergency bag with you at all times (like having car insurance) because you never know what can happen.
While others are still fumbling with a rat's nest of tangled cord you will have addressed the issue and neatly stored your Paracord; ready for the next emergency.
If you have an emergency bag, you may be inconvenienced, but you will be ok as will your family members because you did the planning, and you were prepared.You have heard it mentioned many times on television, seen it on the internet. But what exactly are you suppose to put in your bug out bags?A bug out bag or get home bag is any some sort of back pack that has supplies in it that will be needed in an emergency situation. Even FEMA and state websites encourage individuals to plan and be prepared for any disaster.
There are many tools available to help you prepare, and give their recommendations of what you should put in your bug out bag.  This isn’t easy planning, and can seem overwhelming. I have a bug out bag created for each family member, as well as having one in each car, and two extras, just in case.It is better to be over prepared than to have a wait and see attitude. My children are a little apprehensive at times but that is because all teenagers think they are invincible.You can create bug out bags out of anything that you can pack. I have chosen large backpacks that I have salvaged from yard sales and thrift stores, but my favorite is the Molle Assault Pack I also have taken bags I purchased on clearance from different stores that are pretty handy because they have wheels, so you can drag them like a fancy suitcase, and the carrying handles can also work for shoulder straps, like a backpack. Just click the image.It is important to understand the meaning of a bug out bag, it is meant for an emergency. Sturdy construction is a definite bonus, but any bug out bag is better than no bug out bag or get home bag.
It isn’t hard, and it is fun and gets easier as you prepare and practice more.My intention is not to overwhelm you, but to help you get a head start on being prepared.
So each pack has a two liter soda bottle that has been washed, and a drop of chlorine bleach added to it. It doesn’t add too much weight, and two liters of water per pack is enough to get you through until you find a source for water.However, you need to keep in mind that if you actually need to use your water, use it sparingly. By having some water, some of the pressure is taken from you in an emergency, one less thing to worry about.
The human body needs two quarts of water a day to work efficiently and correctly.If you are in a survival situation you will be exerting yourself, and water is crucial to survival. That means you will need to drink more than the bare minimum in order to keep yourself functioning properly. If you use more water than you take in you take in, you are setting yourself up to become dehydrated.Finding a spot to set up your shelter would be best if you are close to a water source.

Lakes and streams are a great source of water, however there is the potential for contaminants in the water as well, so you will need to be able to purify the water once you have found it.So now that you know why you need to have a water source, lets help you figure out how to find it. If you are in the middle of winter, hopefully there will be ice, which can be used as water. But if you are in the middle of summer, you can still find the water, just look for the greenest areas.This may be even easier if you find yourself in a city environment. Swimming pools, hot tubs, homemade waterfalls and even hot water heaters are sources of water. You will need to purify the water before it is safe for consumption.There are many different ways to purify water.
The best way if you have the utensils, and you should in your bug out bag, is to boil the water for at least ten minutes to kill all of the bacteria that could be in the water. You can use a plastic bottle strung up over a fire to boil the water if you do not have a pot to do it, but it will take longer.There are also many water filtration kits, as well as water purification kits that can be purchased either online, or in stores. Water filtration does get rid of bacteria, but water purification gets rid of viruses as well.You can also purchase water purification tablets, which I have included in my bag. With water purification tablets there are multiple choices, I prefer the chlorine tablets to iodine.
You may find yourself doing a lot of physical work, and you will need calories in order to keep your strength.Calorie dense foods are the best way to do this.
Each person’s calorie requirement will be different, but a good rule of thumb is about twenty-eight hundred calories a day for an average adult female who is exercising, about thirty-two hundred if you are a strapping young lad doing moderate physical labor.Now if you don’t have this many calories per day in your meal planning, the minimum amount of calories to keep all of your body organs functioning properly, minimum mind you, is twelve hundred calories. So if you are trying to ration your caloric intake, a bare minimum of twelve hundred is needed on a daily basis. You will however be losing weight, because you will be burning many more calories than you are taking in.Three days’ worth of food for one person is an essential item that needs to be in your bag. They all taste good!They are also prepared for single use and also have larger packets available. They don’t take up much space, and the shelf life is typically two years making it a cost effective addition to the pack.
One cup of boiling water is needed for each packet.When you are considering your three days’ worth of food, keep in mind your personal preferences and how much you eat. By having things you like to eat and that you know how to prepare will help to keep you in the frame of mind of one who prepares. Remember, this is your pack, and you need to put in it what works best for you, and will provide the best comfort and peace of mind for you and your family.Granola bars, and pieces of hard candy are great for extra energy, and something sweet to provide a small distraction.
You do not have to use what I do, but I think it is a good way for you to see how many calories are in the food. And even though the freeze dried food is tasty, it can be expensive if you are outfitting a family.It is also easy to cook canned food, just vent the top with a can opener.
I don’t have a lot of canned food, because it is heavy in a pack, but it does give a nice change of pace from all freeze dried meals.
Also by adding some comfort foods, such as hot cocoa, it helps to keep a very stressful situation a bit more bearable for you and your family. By thinking ahead, planning and keeping a clear mind, you will be ahead of any dangerous situation that presents itself, leaving you time to figure out what the next step will be.Fire Starting Methods And GearSo far we have covered food and water, and in order for us to be able to use food and water, it is important to have the equipment in order to create a fire.

Whatever the reason, it is a vital necessity in an emergency situation.Having multiple ways to start a fire is important, I suggest at least 3.
I love the magnesium stick as one alternative Knowing how to start a fire, and keeping it going is even more important.A fire is essential for survival, it is needed for boiling water, cooking food, and keeping warm.
It is important also to remember having a fire could alert other to your location, so keep this in mind when creating a fire.
You will also need to keep in mind fire safety and try to remain invisible as possible.The items you should plan to have in your pack are regular matches, waterproof matches (in a waterproof container) a knife, striking flint, 2 regular lighters, an extra-long lighter, dryer lint in a zip lock baggie, nine volt battery and steel wool.You might be thinking, dryer lint? You do not need to be exerting yourself on projects that you don’t need too.Regular matches, and waterproof matches in a waterproof container are helpful as well.
It may seem like overkill, but the more sources you have in order to create fire, the better off you will be. Always try to imagine yourself in different survival situations and brainstorm what you might need or use. Save the waterproof matches for just in case you come into a situation when your lighters and your regular matches get wet or just will not work.It may sound odd to consider a nine-volt battery and steel wool objects that can produce fire, but they can. And it doesn’t have to be a nine-volt battery, any battery will do, however the positive and negative terminals are close on a nine-volt making it easier to spark the fire.Take fine steel wool and stretch it out into a thin cord.
Lay the battery down flat, and take the steel wool and touch the strip along the battery terminals, and you will have fire. The fire does not burn for very long, so make sure you have your tinder ready to go under the steel wool. I go into more detail in the next post about the Bug Out Bags Supplies Part 2 And Get Home Bags. Make sure you head over there and have a look at what the other survival supplies you should take along with you.✕Success! The definition of a prepper is "An individual or group that prepares or makes preparations in advance of, or prior to, any change in normal circumstances, without substantial resources from outside sources" Like the Government, police etc. I don't believe that the end of the world will be the "end of the world" I believe it will be the end of the world as we know it now. Some items don’t get used on a 4 day excursion, and heavy items always end up in the bottom at the small of my back. Is there any basic or even specific stacking loading procedures and what not to take and what to take? I have a bug out bag being shipped to me as I write, and I am very thankful for these classes. I don’t know your whole program, but are you going to go into where in the hell I am going to go? For an earthquake or tornados, I can go somewhere on the acreage and pitch a tent, and not worry about the zombies.
