The list author says: "A bug out bag serves a purpose to keep one alive while moving most likely out of a densely populated area, but to where? The Survival site, and at the survival site there should be a larger storage of survival items this is your survival cache. Meant for long term survival in a wilderness environment as this is how I designed my own and this is where mine is located. these are items that I store but will go into more detail in my comments."
"Tools for building and improving shelter and gardening. Recommended tools include hammer, nails, shovel, hoe, pick axe, bow saw with extra blades friskars has a good one for a decent price, axe, wood chisels, smoothing plane, level, square, hand powered drill or carpenters brace, hack saw and anything else you can think of. NO POWER TOOLS"
"waterproofing is pivotal I keep much of my kit underground to protect it from potential looters since I do not live at my survival site. so everything is double and triple sealed i use silicone sealant to further seal my gear up tight I do also often use large tupperware type containers because they are so much cheaper."
"FOOD STORAGE! Try to get at least a year. Military mres are the best check ebay and surplus sites. Also canned food, dehydrated milk, wheat, oats, flour, rice, ramen buy in bulk, buy foods u like but are affordable."
"medical gear imperative also get iv bags, needles, iv tubing, Antibiotics can be purchased online from candian pharmacies without prescription stock up on ciprofloxin, ampicillin, keep in a cool dark place. Also by real sterile sutures go with absorptive like vicryl, alcohol, betadine, chlorohexadine soap, hydrogen peroxide, field dressings, silk suture and surgical instruments."
"get as much as you can, keep in cool dark place for growing your own food non hybrid will offer the best chances of future generations of crops. Along with hunting and fishing can make a prosperous diet."
"Cold weather gear should be stored as well as summer clothing for the whole family. I use military surplus and also stock up at thrift stores especially for my son i try to buy clothes for him to grow into. also get military bdu or acu's for the most durable clothing, lots of socks normal and cold weather."
"jungle boots are the most durable boots you can buy for the money they will literally last for years under constant stress i know from my days in the army. They are not good for cold weather though so get good cold weather boots as well a couple pairs of each."
"a survival library should be extensive this book is really good also, gardening, foraging, cabin building, land navigation, hunting, brain tanning, butchering game, food preservation are a good start."
"The point here is too have a good supply of personal hygiene gear toothbrushes, paste, dental floss,soap, toilet paper and a good idea is old phone books that can be used for tp after toilet paper runs out."
"Diesel is better because diesel gas stores much longer, but get what you can afford. If able to stock pile vast quantities then u can think of power tools and other electrical devices for survival like battery chargers, and things of that nature."
