Bug Out Bag 2.0
It’s an impressive setup, with safety and secrecy paramount. The government began planning it in 1958 and it stood ready for use, though it never was. In 1992, Ted Gup, an investigative reporter, disclosed its existence, and within four years the government stopped funding. Still, the attention to detail, engineering and defense fascinates the preppers. They devote time to shopping, stocking and planning. Kara and Braxton Southwick of Utah have regular jobs — she works for a financial company; he is a mechanic — but their free time is spent prepping to survive the smallpox epidemic he’s certain is coming. “If I can convince one person to have a bug-out bag and a plan out of the city and three days’ food and water,” Braxton says, it will have justified doing the show. Bug-out bags are what people grab when fleeing disaster. They are stocked with food and the means of purifying water and starting fires, according to Scott Hunt and Dave Kobler, co-founders of Practical Preppers, LLC, a company that determines how prepared people are and rates preppers on the show. “I think we are in the last moments of our last days,” Hunt says.

The zombie apocalypse bug out bag
Hope and Change, Obama style, is coming down to aPeople on the Movea. A change of clothing and toothbrush are already waiting in what preppers call the aBug Out Baga. Put a Bible in there now while youare thinking about it. Along with the MREas and medicine, a Bible is a Godsend in times of trouble. Long after food and medicine need replacing, the Bible you carry will be there to feed the soul. Just reading the Bible can be a comfort and an inspiration to put things in perspective when the going gets rough. In times of fear and worry, the Bible will be a gathering focus for families. The Holy Book tells stories of how the migrants from other dark times came out of the darkness into the light. The stories are more captivating than the ones in other books, because every one of them is true. Coming days may be darker than the ones that passed during the past four and a half years. The time could be coming when it may be impractical or even dangerous to venture out of where you are to a church. In those circumstances, your Bible will be your family priest or pastor.

Why? Because I was more concerned about not exhausting yourself while having the basics. Now, after reading and studying more, I’ve changed my outlook: get the absolute biggest pack you can manage – because you will fill it and still have to leave things out that you’d rather not. Also, the Bugout Bag shouldn’t be seen as the end-all be-all answer to escaping your situation. Your G.O.O.D. vehicle should be seen that way – and it should be preloaded with a few items (different article). The Bugout Bag should be seen as what you have to grab when your vehicle is disabled or out of gas and you have no choice but to leave it.
