Right i wrote a thread on something like this last year I think basically i need some advice on building a urban bug out bag that can sustain two individuals for 48 hours.
First a bit of background.
So earlier this week there was a minor disaster in my home that could very easily have escalated and left my home flooded and me without a place to sleep for a night, water leaking in, power gone was just by good fortune i was in the house and that i had my phone charged so i could sort out some help. This did however get me thinking when it comes to being perp'd for a emergency that could leave me in some trouble I need some help.
I am not interested in anything to grand, basically i want a bag that is suited to a urban environment, I am not looking to survive the apocalypse so no CBRN or self defence stuff really required and i am not looking for any serious survivalist stuff that would seem me camping out in the woods. I am more thinking along the lines of floods, power cuts, fires, terrorist attacks, riots, extreme weather, massive transportation disruption and soon that might prevent me leaving my home for 48 hours and having to hunker down in a school hall/hotel or some kind of evacuation zone.
So any advice on building a bag suitable for this would be much appreciated.
