Bug Out Bag Documents

Today we’re going to talk all about bug out bag documents. It is maybe the most neglected prep but one of the easiest and most important. 

Bug out bag documents are all the important documents you will need in a disaster stored in a binder usually ready to go. 

I’m talking about things like copies of your driver’s license, bank account numbers, and phone numbers to your local utilities. 

In the event that you need to bug out, you do not want to be wasting time trying to find these documents. And you definitely do not want to be without them. 

After hurricane Katrina, many were left without ID’s, insurance cards or banking access. That caused some major headaches. People could not access their bank accounts without their debit cards or Id’s. 

 

With these bug out documents, you will have these with you. You my prepper friend do have your bug out documents ready right?

If the answer is no I’ll help get you squared away. I am by no means perfect. My own documents need to be updated. So this is a good time to go through what needs to be done.

I mostly agree with them on the items in Building Your Bug Out Bag Infographic. Bug out bags needs to fit basic survival needs. Beyond that, it is a lot of personal taste. One of the items mentioned in the infographic is a Bible. This is a heated debate in the survival community. Many can’t imagine

One of the items mentioned in the infographic is a Bible. This is a heated debate in the survival community. For many, it’s impossible imaging not  having their book of faith with them in a survival situation. Others say it’s too much weight and not worth it. To me, it is a personal matter and beyond debate. I would urge you to cover your basics first, however. 

I fully agree with a Hennessey Hammock as a shelter. My hammock is my go to shelter  for  years and love it. I lived out of my hammock for extended camping trips before happily. I can’t imagine ever going back to ground camping. Especially not for an extended time. 

Enjoy the infographic.

eBugout

Today Mike and I are joined by Travis from eBugout. You may be asking what is ebugout and why do I need it. eBugout was founded on the idea of helping others become prepared without the time consuming task of tracking down quality items. Their tool not only ensures that you walk away with a complete, high quality bug out bag – but it also tracks the weight and volume of each item added. This way, before you checkout through Amazon you have the peace of mind knowing how much your bag will weigh, as well as knowing that all of your gear will fit into it.

Each piece of gear listed has been bought my Travis and the rest of the eBugout crew and tested. They have sifted through the garbage out there in the market for you.  No one likes to buy crap to have it fail you. Some of you, like myself, love spending hours researching what gear to buy. We are the weirdoes though. Many people just want to have their bag and rest assured it will work for them when they need it.

Enjoy this show and let me know what you think in the comments!

Bug Out Bags

This week Mike and I finally talk about  Bug Out Bags. We discuss some pitfalls by newbies to survival. I begin with the philosophy used to build all my kits. I use the 10 c’s of survival to build my kits. Those being Cutting, Combustion, Cover, Container, Cordage, Candle, Cotton, Compass, Cargo Tape and Canvas Needle.

The biggest priority being on your Survival knife. All others can be crafted in the wild. Making a good knife in the bush is not an easy task.

 

Mike goes over the contents of his Bug Out Bags in it’s entirety.

10 Things You Must Have In a Bug-Out Bag

 

It is sad that we are not safe in our very homes anymore. This is especially true during natural disasters when we are forced to evacuate. In order to survive, we must prepare a bug-out bag which should contain the necessary items that will enable us to survive for at least 72 hours.
