Emergency Kits and Bug-Out Bags


Pacific Crest Trail
Now that people are starting to take some interest in prepping, I thought I would share the contents on my emergency kit and my bug-out bags. I've had a bug-out bag since I was 15 years old. These days, I keep three separate kits. Depending on the area you live in, you should adjust the contents of your bag accordingly. These lists are intended to be a general reference with the essentials to get you started on your own customized bug-out bag.
