Bug Out Bag, B.O.B. intro. Survive. 72 hr bag. Emergency bag

A Listmania! list by Nikolas S. Kapodistrias "Krzykappy" (KY)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: ""Warning" this list requires lengthy reading. This B.O.B will cover some bare things, and some items that people overlook. Also a lot of the items will have sub items in them so pay attention once again. Thanks for reading and God Speed.

Some important info you need to be clear on before you even start a BOB

1. A very important equation. Tons of gear = weight, which = discomfort, which = no distance, which = can't bug out, which = death, which means no plan, which = why have a BOB then.

2. You are bugging out...so now what?? Write the question that pertains to you. Where are you going? Do you have a plan? Do you have an area that's pre-thought of and have you been there?? Are you planning to just shoot from the hip and go anywhere??

3. Are you planning on standing your ground and digging into your residence??

4. Are you meeting up with loved ones and headed elsewhere?? Is it for a natural disaster (Hurricane, wildfire, tornado, earthquake, flood) Is it because of manmade issues (riot, blackouts, plaques, terrorism, civil disorder, town evacuations)

5. Tailor your kit to the above questions.

6. Buy a local map and a topical graphical map that pertain to your area you desire.

7. Once you have completed your BOB, take it for a light to moderate hike. Readjust the BOB and now take it for an overnight hike. Adjust only after you do these two steps.

8. Know your gear; don't buy something because it looks cool or because "SF" personnel have it. Remember it’s your money…

9. If you can afford, buy two of certain items and train, then train some more. Take your lessons and adjust accordingly.

10. Stay calm, and in control.

11. If you have firearms in the mix, use them as a defensive purpose only. And stick to one firearm or two max!!

12. It’s a Bug Out Bag, not a I’ll bring the kitchen sink with me bag. Always remember the first rule!

13. Predetermine location in the mix, preposition supplies there. Use Bag to get you there. Now survive happy."
