When we lived in Korea in the 70's we had to have bug out bags.
Just a year ago in my community a train derailed and they evacuated within 30 miles of the track because of what it was carrying.
The mayor of Chicago spent so long at the federal level that he started thinking at the federal level and is pushing for bug out bags like they do in
all the federal agencies.
What was the common nomenclature for "bug-out bags" back in those days?
I don't know, "bug-out bags" sounds like a fairly modern fedora-wearing hipster noun made in the last 5 years.
That's why in the interest of political incorrectness, I prefer
to call mine a good tight three day pack. Good for like a month.
If any major city makes the top of Wheel of Misfortune, maybe
the people far out in the burbs could use supplies and tools.
But with so many different WMDs getting tossed around and
indeed getting loose, even a 3 day downtown gets you Richard.
It makes you wonder with all the scandals and even more chatter
in the background; what are those five figure suits dreaming up
for THIS October surprise? Puttin' the brakes on the electorate?
