Bug-out bag: What to pack for a disaster
Spare clothing and quality shoes (NO FLIP FLOPS!) If you don’t yet have your own BOB prepped and ready to go, let Hurricane Isaac be a timely reminder. Because Isaac may turn out to be a relatively mild hurricane, but the real storm heading our way is an economic tsunami called “the great global debt meltdown of 2013” (or whatever year it happens). That’s the storm none of us can escape, so be ready for it. Stay informed!

The ultimate bug-out bag revealed at SHOT show
Emergency preparedness planning has taken on a whole new meaning, said the article. Seemingly every week brings a new disaster to the front page of the newspaper. Embracing the Get Out Of Dodge system will ensure that preparation is done effectively and efficiently, said the article. Limited time means decisions need to be made quickly, and the Special Report aids in the decision-making. It may be hard to believe, but the article said being prepared to leave an area in less than two minutes with everything needed to survive for days is a total possibility. And it can be done without going to extremes or breaking the bank. When its time to get out of dodge, Absolute Rights Special Report gives its readers the power to stay alive. Absolute Rights informs patriotic Americans on their given rights, plus helps protect those rights from government intrusion. Most importantly, it prides itself on alerting people when their rights are being threatened, creating an active and informed community.

So deciding what to pack for the Great Canadian Canoe Trip can pose a difficult challenge, especially for inexperienced paddlers. Cottage Life magazine has come out with a list of things you’ll need and stuff you can leave behind. (For example: need bug spray, first-aid kit, sleeping bag; leave behind laptop computer, hair dryer.) Particularly important is something that will protect all your belongings in the event of rain or a tipped canoe. The best option much better than garbage bags, which will tear and let water in is a dry bag, according to the magazine. This can be purchased at an outfitting shop. Consider either one large one or two small ones. Another durable choice is a plastic barrel, which can also serve as a container for food that can be strung up in a tree away from animals. One such barrel sold by MEC is “critter-proof but not bear-proof,” the outfitter says on its website. “Keeping everything dry is key to a successful and happy trip,” says Cottage Life. ___

Events like these may make you wonder if youd be able to get yourself and my family to safety if a disaster were to strike. Could you evacuate your home with supplies including important documents at a moment’s notice? Perhaps you’ve caught an episode or two of “Doomsday Preppers” on the National Geographic Channel and laughed at the preppers and the lengths they go to for peace of mind. But all kidding aside, how prepared are you? “I am not a doomsday vigilante that some occasionally associate with the topic,” says Creek Stewart , author of “Build the Perfect Bug Out Bag: Your 72-Hour Disaster Survival Kit ,” who agreed to answer our questions. “My philosophy is this: prepare for real disasters that happen to regular people on a regular basis.” Surprisingly, the emergencies Stewart alludes to are not associated with a global pandemic or collapse of our government. They’re events like Katrina, Superstorm Sandy, wildfires and the recent Oklahoma tornadoes. He believes that most of us are not prepared to deal with disruptions in the amenities (electricity, gas, water and trash removal) we rely on every day. He points out that the average downtime associated with these events is 72 hours.

Knife Every go-bag needs a tough, rugged knife with a strong blade; Gerbers comes equipped with the DPSF that ticks all the boxes. The American-made lock-back knife has an easy to use one-handed opening. The 2.8 ounce tool has a 3.5 inch serrated blade and a fine blade, and its just 8 inches long. Recon task light A reliable flashlight is fundamental to emergency preparedness. The Recon Task Lights L.E.D format uses D.I.A.L., Diode Illumination Adjustable Lens, a design that means you can dial in one of four colors as you need it for each purpose. For general situations it has a white light and to preserve night vision it has red.
