Bug Out Survival Kit
Store bought survival kits are ok in a pinch, but the best kits are ones you build yourself from your own experiences and research. You will want the survival kit to be smaller and will fit in a pouch that you can put on a hip, pocket or belt. The purpose of these kits are to make sure it’s on your person so in case you have to dump your pack, gets destroyed or have to leave it behind, the survival kit theoretically, will contain the bare minimal supplies to help keep you alive. Remember, you need 4 elements of fire, water, food, and shelter.
Below are what I have in my pack
Wheel Sparker Ferro Rod/Matches Magnifying glass Rifle Round
Cotton Balls Rubbing Alcohol
Aqua Tabs Fire for Boiling Water Filter (if it fits)
SOL Blanket Cordage or Bungee Plastic Poncho
Cordage for Traps Wire for traps Fishing Gear (hook, line and sinker)
Arrow Heads Spear Points
Folding knife Wire Saw Duct Tape
Band-Aids Duct tape Cotton Balls Rubbing Alcohol Aspirin
-Of course you will add and subtract and notice that there are some redundancies and some bleed overs. Survival is not an exact science and situations dictate how you use some items over the other. Remember, it’s risk vs reward.
