In this episode I review the contents of my bug out bag and share some unusual ideas on bug out bags.  I believe it is okay to over-pack a bug out bag, enabling you to discard unneeded items depending on the disaster at hand.  I also value comfort items and good-tasting food, to keep up morale.

Here are some of the items I discuss in this episode:

Black Backpack

Pup tent

Tire Iron (18-inch Wrecking Bar)

Machete (Gerber Gator Machete With Black Nylon Sheath)

Gerber Folding Shovel + Case

Stansport Collapsible Water Bag 2 Gallon

Berkey Sports Water Filter

Mainstay Emergency Wafer, 3600 Calories

Esbit Camping Cook Set

Gerber Multitool With Sheath

EDC (Maxpedition E.D.C. Pocket Organizer)

Knife and Sheath (Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Knife, Serrated Edge)

Spork (Light My Fire Titanium Spork)

Flashlight 250-Lumen Dorcy Weatherproof With Battery Indicator

Rain Poncho Camouflage


Red Nylon First Aid Bag (Voodoo Tactical MOLLE)

Quickclot sponge

Quickclot powder

Triple Antibiotic First Aid Ointment


Don’t forget to get some very small pill containers at The Container Store.  This will save space in your bag.

Mountain House pouches, and the MRE’s mentioned here can be bought at Emergency Essentials or Ready Made Resources.
