BUG OUT BAG INFO Backpacker4
SPECIAL NOTE: I originally published this article back in September of 2010 at Neithercorp Press,
however, with the escalation of recent economic events, I feel it is a
good idea to republish all my past survival pieces here at Alt-Market
for those who are still learning how to prep, or looking for new ideas.
Stay tuned for more survival articles in the coming week.


The bug-out-bag is probably the most clichéd emergency preparation in
the history of survivaldom. Some people focus so much on compiling
their BOB that they lose track of much more important survival matters,
while others are so biased against the ‘bug out’ concept that they
refuse to even consider putting one together. In the world of survival
research, preppers sometimes position themselves on the far ends of the
opinion spectrum. To be sure, some strategies simply do not work and
will never work, and to be uncompromising in those instances is
reasonable, especially when you are dealing with such extremes as
economic collapse. However, in my endless war against ‘assumption’, I
would point out that rigidity in thinking often leads to tragedy for
those in the midst of a social breakdown. Adaptability is the key to
survival, and because of this, we cannot discount certain options out of
hand.


The bug-out-bag should not be a primary concern of the survivalist,
but it should be somewhere on their list. First and foremost, those who
wish to prepare for a collapse event or other disaster should focus on
survival location (where will you be safest? At home, or at a retreat?),
food storage (a year’s worth for each person in your family or group is
really the bare minimum, though some retreatists have the skill to get
by on less), water allocation (if the tap stops running, how will you
maintain a water supply? Remember, the average person can die after
three days without water), and self defense (how are you going to defend
the supplies you have from those wandering looters who did not prepare?


How many people do you know that you can actually count on to stand
their ground when the situation grows truly frightening?) If you haven’t
already addressed these important issues, having a BOB will do you no
good.


Have you ever watched a boxing or martial arts match and known
immediately which guy was going to lose? That’s how I feel about those
people who are obsessed with the bug-out strategy. They have lost before
the fight has even begun.


On the other hand, there are those preppers who believe they are so
safe in their survival location that they can’t be bothered with
secondary retreats or even a bug-out-bag. This is equally foolish. As
intuitive and as well researched as survivalists are, we still have no
way of knowing what would really happen in the event of a total
meltdown.

Could your homestead be the future site of a refugee highway?
Could your retreat and your independence be considered a threat by
“authorities” intent on restoring their brand of order? Could a poorly
maintained campfire on one side of your county set a forest fire that
sweeps through to the other side, right through your home where you have
staked all your survival hopes? There are an infinite number of reasons
why you may one day have to leave your primary retreat location,
possibly without warning. No one is invincible, and sometimes it’s
better to walk away and live to fight another day. This is where the BOB
comes in…


The bug-out-bag offers you a CHANCE at survival when all else seems
lost. This is its purpose. The more ingenuity invested in the design of
your BOB, the better your chance will be. Finding items and tools that
streamline efficiency, space, weight, or serve two or more functions at
once is crucial in organizing a high performance pack. In this way,
building a BOB becomes a sort of art form. In this article, we will go
over some great methods for taking your bug-out-bag to the next level.


BUG OUT BAG INFO Survival-gear2
Bug Out Bag Essentials
Most people who frequent survival sites are well aware of BOB basics.
For the sake of those who are new to the concept, I’ll rehash most of
these items (we all started somewhere). It’s possible I will forget to
include some gear that people find essential. Hey, there’s a lot to
remember!

By all means, please leave a comment listing the items you
believe should be included, but don’t send me emails admonishing me for
my negligence (I once left out ‘toilet paper’ in a survival gear article
and received dozens of finger-wagging letters in my mailbox).


The items below should adequately cover the Big Four; food, water,
shelter, and self defense, as well as the special tools used in their
acquisition, and those items required for personal health.


Bug-Out Backpack: A lot of people forget to include research
on the ‘bag’ part of the “bug-out-bag”. Your choice of pack is probably
the most important of all, and will affect your comfort and efficiency
throughout any survival situation. Things to consider include size,
durability, as well as how much you can honestly carry over long
distances.


Most hiking packs are categorized by size, which measures their
carrying capacity in liters. Smaller packs, or ‘daypacks’ are usually
between 15 and 35 liters, multi-day packs range between 40 to 75 liters.
For your purposes, a multi-day pack is the best choice.


Some packs are set on a frame which helps your body in supporting the
weight of your gear over long distances. I have found though that a
frame is not absolutely necessary and tends to be a matter of
preference. Military ‘molle’ wear also offers the ability to easily
strap compatible pouches onto your existing bag


There seems to be quite an ongoing debate among survivalists as to
the “appearance” of the BOB pack. On one side, people hold that military
grade bags in camo should be standard. On the other, people scoff at
the idea of hiking across the countryside in military gear, possibly
scaring the bejeezus out of everyone you come across. My personal take;
go for the military style gear, or at least look for very subdued and
earthy colors. I find that the anti-military gear argument is rather
faulty. In a collapse scenario that is so disastrous it calls for a
survivalist to “bug out”, it seems rather unlikely that the average
person you run into will be in a position to care about what you are
wearing, let alone be able to do anything about it. If a prepper was to
run around in combat duds and a camo combat pack today, I would call him
crazy. In a social breakdown tomorrow, I would call him smart.


Camo makes you less visible. I’m not sure what the problem is here.
Unless you enjoy being chased relentlessly by thugs and maniacs, I
suggest choosing a military surplus pack over that nifty new bright red
JanSport.


Bug-Out Food: Food acquisition is probably the most
difficult obstacle in a bug-out scenario. Weight and space are at a
premium. You could load up enough food in your pack to last you a week
or more, but that would leave little space for anything else. This is
where you have to apply the art of efficiency.


What you are looking for are food items that cover a wide range of
health requirements, contain a high amount of calories, and take up very
little space. I have found that protein and energy bars, trail mixes,
chocolates, and jerky, are all perfect for the BOB.

Peanuts and other
legumes are very high in calories (some trail mixes contain over 1000
calories in a single cup). Protein bars usually hold around 250 to 300
calories in a very small package, not to mention, they are a good source
of necessary vitamins and minerals. Jerky is not very high in calories,
but it does give you protein and that satisfying feeling of “fullness”,
which is sometimes just as important.

Chocolate is high in calories,
fats, and sugars. In our regular environment where active people are
rare, we are taught to avoid these things, but in a survival situation,
you want as much calories, sugar, and fat as you can get!


Despite these space saving foods, your supplies will run out quickly,
likely far faster than you had hoped. Prepare for this eventuality
carefully. Memorize the wild edible plants common to your region of the
country, and carry a small edible plant guide for good measure (never
forget, dandelions are your friend). Be sure to carry snare wire for
catching small game, and a small fishing kit with extra hooks, sinkers,
and strong line.


Survival fishing is not a leisure activity. You will not need a rod
and you will not be sitting around waiting for a bite. Staking a line
across a river with several baited hooks for the day is your best chance
of catching at least one if not several fish, all while your out making
better use of your time. Gill Nets are also an option, though illegal
for sport fishing in most states today, it is doubtful you will care
much during a collapse.


Hunting will be difficult. Carrying more than one standard firearm
when bugging out is not recommended, and if you have to choose only one,
take your primary defense weapon. There are options, though. A combat
rifle in .308 can also be loaded with hunting ammo for large game,
serving two purposes at once. Another option, for smaller game, is the
Henry AR-7 .22 rifle, which weighs less than a full canteen, collapses
down into its waterproof floating stock, and is acceptably accurate out
to 50 yards:
BUG OUT BAG INFO Ar7b
While perhaps a little too bulky to fit inside your pack, it could
still be easily strapped to the side of your pack and the extra weight
is negligible. 200 rounds of .22 LR ammo weighs virtually nothing and
can be nestled into your BOB without trouble.


Bug-Out Water: Water is a weight killer. Don’t expect to
carry much. Plan your bug-out route to intersect natural water sources,
and carry at least one thick plastic sheet, garbage bag, or poncho for
rain collection in conjunction with your canteen. Water purifying
tablets are great in the short term, but a portable water filtration
unit is a must for longer term situations, especially when dealing with
very dirty water sources. The Katadyn Hiker Pro is one of the most
common units used today and the filters are widely available in sporting
goods stores:
BUG OUT BAG INFO HikerPro2
There are many other brands available, but I would stress using
filters that are common, mainly because you are more likely to find
replacement filters for trade in a post-collapse environment. Be sure to
stock at least one extra filter cartridge to avoid having to make this
trade too soon.


Bug-Out Shelter: Hopefully, if you have to bug out, you
already have a pre-planned destination. There is nothing more dangerous
than wandering around aimlessly during a collapse hoping to stumble
across a good situation. As you travel, you will need temporary shelters
to get you to that designated primary shelter.


Hiking anywhere takes a lot of energy, and you will probably need to
set camp at some point along the way. In a group, you can sleep in
shifts while others stand watch. If you are alone, the safety hazards
are considerable. Sleeping at all will take effort due to the pressing
uncertainty in the back of your mind, especially when a single moment of
unconsciousness could leave you vulnerable.


Carrying a tent, even a top of the line lightweight all-season tent,
is not realistic during a bug-out trek. The extra weight could be used
for more important items, such as food, and one can easily build a
makeshift shelter from available materials. 550 paracord is extremely
useful in shelter construction. Plastic zip ties also work well. Dead
wood from the forest floor supplies the rest. Choosing the right
location is the number one priority.

On high ground, in treacherous
terrain, away from water sources, is actually ideal. The harder it is
for you to get to your temporary shelter, the harder it will be for
other people to get there as well. Terrain alone can deter most would be
attackers. Generally, looters and other undesirables look for easy prey
on easy ground.
BUG OUT BAG INFO Shelter-leanto2
Using existing rock formations, fallen trees, caves, etc. helps to
obscure your presence, and covering your shelter with live mosses and
vegetation blends its shape in with the surroundings. A heavy duty
thermal blanket can be used to insulate your shelter during cold nights.
Light and fire discipline cannot be overstated, which is another reason
why eating foods that require no preparation is important, at least a
majority of the time. The goal is to avoid altercation, to go as
unnoticed as possible until you reach your primary retreat.


Bug-Out Health: Without your health, you aren’t worth much
to anyone, especially yourself. A bug-out event favors those who are
energetic, athletic, and immune system conscious. Before an event even
occurs, you should already be focusing on improving the mechanics of
your body to the utmost precision. You should be a fine tuned and
flexible machine (or at least as close as you can get).

This includes
the old guys out there who are grumbling at me as they read this. I’m
not old, but I’m not so young anymore either. If you are serious about
survival preparation, exercise a little everyday, and I mean EVERYDAY,
especially jogging for endurance.


Get off the garbage prepackaged foods filled with poisonous chemicals
and preservatives. Go organic if you can afford it. Quit smoking, quit
drinking (at least cut down. No one can resist a good beer every once in
a while, not even me), quit heavy drug use (this includes illegal and
legal psychotropic substances), and get in shape for heaven’s sake! I
know, it sounds like I’m telling you to have no fun. I’m not. I’m
telling you to have a little less fun for the sake of your own survival.
It’s worth it, trust me.


Pack wool socks. If you damage your feet due to cold, and lose your
mobility, you will not survive. Frostbite is a notorious problem in
survival situations.


Include a ‘snivel kit’ in your pack for minor illness and injury,
with bandages, aspirin, pepto chewables, etc. I hate to say it, but
diarrhea will probably be a more formidable enemy than any looters you
might come across in a bug-out scenario. Normally, it’s just a minor
irritation, but during a collapse, it could easily dehydrate and kill
you. Packing preventative medications and choosing your water sources
carefully could save you from a most excruciating experience.


Use herbal supplements or teas, like Echinacea and Elderberry, to
maintain a resilient immune system. I have not used any antibiotics or
vaccinations in a decade and I am rarely ill. Your immune system can
handle almost anything if you take care of it properly.


Pack a camper towel and biodegradable liquid camper soap. Stay clean
as often as possible. Take good care of your teeth! Imagine a tooth
problem during a bug-out! Carry non-fluoride baking soda toothpaste and a
brush. Use a dab of peroxide to kill germs. Not only does this save you
from tooth loss, it also keeps your smile pretty, which seems
irrelevant, but during a collapse, you need every advantage.

Flash a
rotted gnarly grin at someone who could help you, and they will
instinctively want to walk the other way, no matter how nice you act.
That’s just how people are. Keeping teeth white during a collapse? Try
eating wild strawberries or strawberries from a garden if you can.
Strawberries are filled with malic acid, which removes plaque.


Rest when you are sick, even if it takes a few days. Do not try to
push on until you have battled your cold or flu back. Otherwise, it will
stick with you for weeks, and even cause serious damage.


BUG OUT BAG INFO Survival-tools2
Bug-Out Tools: Here is a broad list of items every bug-out-bag should have, in no particular order…
Lighter
Magnesium Striker
Waterproof Matches
Canteen
Snare Wire
Fishing Kit
2 Compasses
Compact Binoculars
Topographical Map (know the terrain you are heading towards)
Camper Knife/Fork/Spoon Combo
Camp Knife (for work)
Combat Knife (for defense)
Leatherman Multi-tool
Wire Saw (get one with leather straps, not metal rings)
Folding Camper Saw (for bigger jobs)
550 Paracord
Plastic Zip Ties
Carabiners (numerous uses)
Small Sewing Kit (pack extra needles)
Snivel Kit (don’t forget Quick-Clot and poison oak/ivy soap)
Folding Shovel
Small Knife Sharpening Stone
Compact Mess Kit (get steel for durability and stay away from aluminum)
TOILET PAPER!!! (get a thick roll, cut out the cardboard center, and smash it down)
Poncho
2 Thick Emergency Thermal Blankets
Small Camp Stove (I recommend the Bushbuddy Stove)
Water Purification Tablets
Katadyn
Water Filter
LED Flashlight (cover light with small piece of clear red plastic to reduce visibility)
Rechargeable Batteries
2 Pairs of Wool Socks (even if you bug-out in the Summer)
Solid Leather Boots (wear these, and make sure they’re worn in before an event occurs)
Small Survival Guide (helps you to remember possible strategies)
Wild Edible Plant Guide
Paper
Pen
This seems like an incredible amount of items to carry around on your
back, but all of it should fit quite easily into your BOB if you use
the space wisely, and the weight should not be an issue. Pack contents
will also vary depending on personal survival strategies, but most of
these tools should be present in your bag regardless of conditions.


Advanced Bug-Out Gear
So now that you have all your essentials organized, and have found
that you actually still have room in your pack for more goodies, you’re
wondering what items could give you that extra edge, that advantage that
tips the odds in your favor. Let’s go over a few special pieces of gear
that could make bugging out much easier.


Combat Rifle: When defending a retreat, you have the option
of a battery of firearms if you wish. Assault rifles, pistols, and
shotguns for short range, scoped bolt actions and semi automatics for
long range. However, in a bug-out event, you may only be able to carry
one weapon, so it had better cover as many areas of defense as possible.


The temptation here is to grab a pistol and a few boxes of ammo and
enjoy the reduced weight. I recommend against this. I also recommend
against AK’s, AR-15’s, Shotguns, and other weapons that lure us with
their light weight, but reduce our range considerably. Long range
calibers can still be used for short range combat, and they do something
smaller calibers can’t; keep opponents at bay for hundreds of yards.


I’m sure there are plenty of survivalists who will turn their noses up
at this article now and go back to cleaning their AK, but remember, we
are talking about a bug-out. I’m not giving the thumbs down to your
precious AK or AR-15, I’m only saying they are not optimal for a bug-out
situation. Here are some rifles I believe are…


BUG OUT BAG INFO M1Ab
Springfield M1A: The .308 is a heavy bullet which diminishes
the number of rounds you can carry comfortably in your pack, but its
range and penetration abilities easily make up for this. The M1A is a
precision weapon which utilizes the .308 round masterfully. Hitting
center mass out to 300 yards with only iron sights is very do-able, and a
thousand yards is feasible with a decent scope. You’ll notice that
every rifle I have chosen on this list is semi automatic. Some might
argue that bolt actions offer greater accuracy, but this is debatable,
especially where the M1A is concerned. You want a weapon that is
versatile. Having the option of putting more rounds down range faster is
part of this.


BUG OUT BAG INFO AR10b
AR-10: Although I am not a fan of the AR format, especially
with the reports coming from the front lines in Afghanistan and Iraq of
rampant weapon failures, I believe my concern lay far more with the .223
round, and less with the weapon that fires it. The AR-10 fires the .308
while at the same time having the reduced recoil advantages of the
AR-15. The AR is also easily modified, something that the M1A cannot
boast. Extra care should be taken in keeping any AR clean and well
oiled, but this weapon is a high performer if you do so.


BUG OUT BAG INFO Fnar2
FNAR: An excellent semi-auto rifle platform with
considerable range and accuracy. Must be scoped however (which adds
weight, and scope maintenance) and does not come with iron sights. Very
durable and very few reports of malfunction.


BUG OUT BAG INFO CETME2
CETME: This is the super saver of the bunch, usually costing
about half as much as the other three rifles. Fires .308, but not quite
as accurate as the M1A. Also does not have the recoil reduction of the
AR-10, so it will tenderize your shoulder pretty good. A lot of practice
at the range will get you used to that, though, and its affordability
certainly leaves more cash for you to purchase other items.
Ammo supply for a BOB is really dependent on how much weight you can
handle. Carrying as much as possible without having to remove other
important items is suggested. A minimum of four magazines for your
weapon should also be stowed, along with supplemental parts (like firing
pins) if you can find them.


BUG OUT BAG INFO OTIS2
OTiS Tactical Cleaning System: This thing is fantastic! If
you get excited about tools that streamline efficiency and space like I
do, the OTiS gun cleaning set will drop your jaw. The entire kit,
including the flexible fiber cleaning rod, fits into a tiny package
about the size of a small cheeseburger. No joke. And, it holds brushes
for every firearm imaginable, including the shotgun, as well as a tube
of cleaning/oiling solution. I recommend packing a little extra oil and
cleaning patches, but otherwise, I can’t think of a single bad thing to
say about OTiS. Incredible space saver for your BOB.


BUG OUT BAG INFO Brunton2
Brunton 26 Folding Solar Panels: The Brunton 26 is just the
right size for your bug-out-bag; not too big, but not so small that it
has trouble charging your electronic items. I have this system myself
and have no complaints.

A small intermediary battery pack may be
necessary though when connecting to such items as 15 minute battery
chargers, so that current is properly regulated. I can think of numerous
electronics that are useful during a collapse, and these durable solar
panels ensure they will always be operational.


Two Way Radios: If you travel by yourself, these aren’t very
practical to carry, but if you are working in a group, they are a must.
There are many models to choose from, but finding a set with security
and private channel options is a priority, ensuring that other people
will not be listening in on your conversations.

They often advertise a
range of 15 miles or more, but their real range when not in perfectly
flat terrain usually ends up being around 2-3 miles, which should still
be adequate for your purposes.


BUG OUT BAG INFO Nightvision2
Night Vision, IR Flashlight: I’ve written quite a bit about
night vision for the survivalist, and I think the advantages are
obvious. I suggest buying a decent but cheaper model, and then finding a
powerful IR Flashlight. Night vision uses IR rays like an invisible
spotlight, and adding another IR flashlight could increase your range
greatly.


Mini-Digital Video Camera: This serves several purposes. It
can be used for surveillance and for mapping dangerous areas. Instead of
sitting in a hazardous place drawing a site picture, you can walk up,
take a minute of video, and then walk away for later viewing. Another
use; video diary. If you are alone in a survival situation, you might
find yourself losing your mental composure.

Talking to the camera and
recording your thoughts might take the edge off the tension and help you
get through alive. Finally, you never know what you might see on your
trek. Perhaps things no one would believe if you told them. Video
evidence might be important, even during a collapse.


Shotgun Signal Alarm: A cheap trip wire device that sets off
a blank 12 gauge shell, or sometimes a flare. Gives you a heads up and a
head start on anyone moving towards your camp. Also can deter those who
now know that you know that they are coming.


Smoke Grenade: These are perfectly legal to own and not too
difficult to find on the web for purchase. Especially useful during an
ambush in which you are at a severe disadvantage. Gives you an
opportunity to make a clean getaway, or at least buys you time to find a
better tactical position.


BUG OUT BAG INFO Nukalert1
NukAlert Key Chain: You never know what you might run into
during a collapse, especially if international tensions are involved. A
meter which is always running and alerts you when approaching dangerous
radioactivity could save your life. Though most highly volatile gamma
radiation falls to safe levels after two weeks of initial exposure, you
should still be concerned about consumption of affected substances.
Irradiated water sources, for instance, are undetectable to the eye, and
without a device like the NukAlert, you would never know what you were
drinking. The device is very small, and is also designed to be immune
against an Electromagnetic Pulse.


The Most Important Bug-Out Tool Of All
I could probably go on for another several pages about gear options
and items, but that would be overlooking the most important tools of
all; your brain, and your spirit.


Smart survivalists, with a solid knowledge base and a powerful
intuition, are the most likely to succeed under the worst of conditions.
Intelligent, logical, and precise action can turn a catastrophe into
any other day, and this is no exaggeration. Most catastrophes befall
those who are unprepared, those who lack knowledge. For the smart
survivalist, a catastrophe is simply an obstacle he has already trained
to remove, and nothing to be overly frightened of.


The spirited survivalist draws on an inexhaustible well of
determination. He is like a human avalanche, bursting through any
barrier no matter how impassable it might seem. He never stops. He never
gives up. He knows there is ALWAYS a way, an answer to any problem. He
understands that most people who die in survival situations die on the
inside first. They give in to the elements psychologically, and the rest
follows from there.


A bug-out event is definitely one of the worst scenarios I can think
of, mainly because it involves so many unknowns. But, with a well
planned BOB, a level head, and a defiant heart, nothing is impossible.
You can live through it. Never forget it. It can be done!
