Yes, it was in those big rubbermade tubs in the corner of your garage. Carefully hidden under 40 years of crap we have accumulated, oh wait that's our stuff.

I was on a really paranoid websites a few years ago, but I did take something away from it, I don't like to advertise just exactly all we have or don't have. Of course that was back when we were uber paranoid we were "being watched". But my God, people were posting pictures of their complete arsenal's all lined out on display and showing their secret rooms and what have you. Not a good way to keep a low profile.

Bug out bag In England? So just where do you think you can run to and hide? Sherwood forest?

Most people would not survive in most forest (especially the sick and the old) even if they had a bug out bag. You are just gathering together items for the baddest dude on the block to take them away from you.

When global chaos breaks out on the biy city streets around the world by the time the military and police react you MIGHT make it three or four blocks before you are robbed and maybe killed. It will go lightning quick.

VERY VERY few will make it out of large populated areas before the streets are shut down. Road blocks by police and road blocks by criminals will be everywhere.

I laugh when I see those American TV bug out shows showing the world their "stash of food" and bury their silver coins. Meanwhile the crooks are taking notes.......

Haha, agreed.
It is why my rucksack is packed for camping. I'll stay in my home in a disaster, and/or construct a shelter out of the remains.

There you go......now that sounds like a plan! I will be doing the same with the hope that the police and military regain control and if they don't then I will have to my trust in my 12 gauge pump shotgun.

I am not an alarmist or anything like that. Back in Febuary this year my hometown suffered a major power black out owing to a failure with a major underground cable which took a few hours to repair. It was the final straw that made me think to myself I need to buy myself a bug out bag. So I have done so.



Mine was bought before I was born.

I have just applied to join my local gun club so give me 6 months and I shall have my shotgun licence - I know, crazy, Brits are actually allowed to have firearms!
On-topic though, staying close with community friends and neighbours is the best option in the UK.
I live on top of a hill, one road up and down, far better to defend that with people I know than being a stranger in a place where others are defending against me.

a reply to: Wirral BagpussMy B.O.B is in my living room along with all my camping and fishing gear. I live in a apartment, so there is no room to store it else where. The only thing I need to dig out of my bedroom closet is my Ruger 10/22. My sisters and dad have already got the RV in place for the summer. We just have a short 40 min drive to our campsite.



on the 10/22. I know mine will be coming with me if SHTF.

Nice list... I am a prepper as well and this covers many of the basics for bugging in/out. While this seems to be a good readiness list, the one thing I noticed was missing was protection. You need to have several well made knives for both protection and use during a survival situation. Depending on the country you are in, I would also highly recommend several firearms. I suggest a semi-automatic pistol (caliber of your choice - 9mm or higher is good), a 22LR rifle for small game hunting and some protection, a larger high caliber rifle (.223/556mm, 9mm or even something like a 30-06). I would also suggest an item like a machete for bugging out, in case you need to build a shelter somewhere using natural resources (trees, brush, etc.). Just my 2 cents...

I purposely left weaponry out...because its an : some opposed: some concerned.

In disaster response training...they tell us its up to the individual (I do pack a 45 acp in mine-but lets not go there)...and that to remember this:

It that situation...having a weapon...can also get taken away from you and used on you.

So for the general person...I felt we should not emphasize weaponry...and that it is a given.

For safety reasons...I did not include.

Thanks MS

Oh, I understand your point, especially here on ATS and gun debates. I just wanted to throw that in, as it is an important factor whether you even get to keep everything on that list or not, if you had the where-with-all to actually plan and acquire the items beforehand. Someone will be there to try and take it from you - promise...

Thanks for the reply as well... If you are in the US, have a great 4th of July weekend coming up!

When you look thru a periscope you can only see

You have to go deeper. DIVE DIVE DIVE!

It is in discussions like this I pity the people that live in big cities. If SHTF I'm simply going home and turning on my generator .


Then in the morning I will wake up around 8 o'clock and head to City Hall where everyone else in my community will meet. We will then counsel and discuss how we are going to work as a community to meet any threat .

I pity anyone that has to attempt to meet the threat individually . The people that survive will meet the obstacles as a unit and not on their own .

If the Shi# goes down it goes down, no need for preperation we wont live forever just deal with it as best you can. Dont waste your time doing anything other than gardening and growing your own food and keeping a fresh supply of water, not stored water but clean well water. If you dont have those things just forget about it, you have less than 50 years of life left, if you can give your kids something give them a safe community far away from racists. Racists attract bad fortune in all its forms, just keep your kin far from them.

Bug Out Bags basically have three components. Beans, Bullets, and Bandaids. But before you dial in what all those components actually consist of you need to figure out where exactly you are going to Bug Out to? If you are going to go to a friends house 20 minutes walk down the road, then your bug out bag is basically a shopping bag with a roll of tape, a candy bar, bottle of water, and some kind of weapon. Not very sexy I know. But if you are really thinking of having a preparation for emergency plan you should do just that. Figure out what kind of dangerous emergency scenario is possible and likely in your area. Make a plan to manage that scenario. Then after you have a plan, buy or prepare the equipment and tools you need to complete the plan. You will save time, money, and most of all actually have a better chance of survival in a real life situation. Don't get me wrong I like Doom Porn as much as the next guy. But I like spending my time and money on my family. Prepping is just one portion of what needs to be done for those we care about.

I have a bug out bag/military rucksack ready by my front door, with two glass jugs of water. It contain's dried food stuff, a couple of water filters, iodine tabs, chlorine drop bottles. A compass and barometer, and several maps. Several sources of light. Several sources to start fire. Two ultra-light, one-person tents and one large tarp. A good sleeping mat and Tyvek ground cloth. A bivvy rated to -20 degrees in case I have to go to higher altitudes. A couple of pair of good, rugged hiking boots.
A good axe, a machete, hunting bow, wire snares and plenty of paracord. My trusty walking stick fitted with a broadhead/game point. Pencils and a notebook to keep you sane.
I have few bug out places I have already visited and have buried extra supplies in capped PVC pipes. I don't expect anyone to find me at these places. These places have abundant game and edible plants to forage.
Most importantly, I always keep in good health because you won't get far if you are out of shape. I don't plan on taking streets or highways when the SHTF.
