You’re doing your prepping best. Your plan for survival water, food, shelter, and security is taking shape. Maybe more than that … you are actually “ready”. Your family’s on board, and everyone has a prepped bug out pack.
But have you completely considered the actual bug out moment where each family member grabs their pack and … and what? What!?
Everyone is not here!? That pack is someplace else!? Where’s the main pack!? What do you mean it’s too heavy!?
There are 5 important items to consider when distributing gear into different packs:
Now this solves your bug out bag problem!
Is your bag complete? Do you have one for your car? Do you have one?
Well, there’s now an awesome internet site that helps you build, buy, and ship your pack. How? They start with 29 product categories including:
Each category has several products from different manufacturers, all with customer reviews. As you make your selections, as you build out your bag, the tool (the website) tracks in real time the weight, volume, pricing, and progress of your build.
When you’re done, you check out through Amazon “knowing how much your bug out bag will weigh, as well as knowing that all of your gear will fit into it”.

When we first began prepping, collecting gear seemed the obvious way to start. Spent more money than I probably should have. I wanted all the newest, the latest cutting-edge “shiny things”. It was a newbie error.
Make no mistake: you need survival gear. But owning it and knowing how to use it are very different things.
And, you also need the info on what is a must-have item today … and a good add-on item to be purchased later.
Here’s the premise of this article: bugging in is not an option. You have to leave your home or apartment. There are armed, occupying forces (national and/or foreign) moving into your town and neighborhood.
If you don’t leave, you risk harsh imprisonment and/or death.
Is this “Red Dawn” scenario likely? Maybe not. Is it possible? Most certainly.
