[Videos] Bug-Out Bag: What-To And How-To Pack

The Why And What Of Your Bug Out Bag

As everyone(?) knows, your bug out bag (BOB) is what you grab when you have to leave. And I mean leave right now. For the most part, it’s prepacked with the most essential items you need to survive for the next 72 hours or so.

What-To And How To Pack

Survival Lilly shows in 3 videos (we’ll publish the third one when it’s available):

  • what she packs
  • why she packs it, and
  • how it goes into her BOB rucksack.

Basic Packing, You Start With A List And …

The least important items go in first. Then you pack the gear you want to be able to get at quickly. Pretty obvious, but think about it carefully. You pack the most important stuff that you can carry quickly and comfortably. The kitchen sink stays at home.

[Video] 3 Step Knife Sharpening

Lilly Sharpens Her Knife

Your knife is a basic survival tool. Keeping it sharp and polished is a basic skill.

So … In this video Lilly displays her knife sharpening skills on a Coldsteel SRK knife. Tools needed:

  • a DC4 diamond/ceramic sharpening stone
  • an Arkansas whetstone, and
  • a leather belt

Diamond side, then ceramic side, to whetstone, then the polish belt. The critical lesson here is the knife-sharpening angle.

[Video] How To Build A Debris Hut Shelter

Emergency Shelter In A Deciduous Forest

If you’re lost in a forest without your gear or the means to create a fire, here’s how to build a debris shelter to help you get through the night.

This type of shelter should keep you warm and dry. And you’ll see why this probably won’t work in a pine forest.

Survival Lilly starts with a ridge pole leaning against a natural structure. Beneath this you cover the ground with a thick layer of dead leaves.

[Video] Planting A Wilderness Survival Cache

Buried Emergency Supplies

Burying a cache of supplies you might need in an emergency situation is a great survival strategy.

You could plant more than one cache along your bug out route, or in different locations if it’s an “urban cache”. However, never bury it too close to your actual bug out camp in case it’s now occupied by others outside your group.

What’s In The Cache

One of our favorite folks, Survival Lilly, uses a plastic, general purpose first aid container to store the supplies to be buried: no rust and the rubber seal makes it waterproof (for a few years).

So what’s in it? Here’s the list:

  • contractor trash bags,
  • tissues,
  • hand-crank flashlight,
  • mirror to inspect facial injuries/signalling,
  • canteen set,
  • folding knife,
  • candle …
