The list of items we should have on our person or in our backpack:

  • Sleeping bag


  • firesteel
  • cigarette lighter
  • Tinder or fire-starting materials


  • flashlight
  • head lamp
  • Emergency candle




  • Military rain poncho (get one that opens up to double as small shelter)
  • wool stocking cap (watch cap)
  • hat (sun protection)
  • Bandana or Shemagh
  • Socks, and extra socks (wool?)


  • sunscreen

  1. You are great. You should write a book. Obviously you need high sales for you book ; otherwise, why do all of the work? But be certain about your vision.

  2. An excellent resource I have found on bug out bags is a book called, “Realistic Bug Out Bag, 2nd Edition: Prepared to Survive” by Max Cooper. This book is huge (620 pages) and covers a very wide range of topics to include 30 scenarios and 10 drills to increase your chances of survival. Well worth checking out. I found it complete and insightful.
