I didn't see anyone write about this book before, so I thought I would give a quick opinion.
Build The Perfect Bug Out Bag: Your 72-Hour Disaster Survival Kit by Creek Stewart. Published by Betterway Home . Copyright 2012.
I've had a good idea what a BOB should be like for a long time, so I basically picked up this book at the library just to validate my thoughts, plus
look for some good tips and tricks.
The author has laid out the chapters by supply categories.
-water and hydration
-food and food preparation
-shelter and bedding
-protection and self defense
I don't want to steal any of the author's thunder because I think this is, at least, worth a checkout from your library if they have it. It's also
cheap on Amazon.
Most of the items are common sense, but there are a few things I hadn't considered.
-Wrapping duct tape around water bottles. That's about perfect. It protects the bottles and gives a few feet of tape.
-Buying a shemagh. Do you know what that is? I didn't. It's basically those large bandannas worn by foreign military.
The only thing that concerns me with this is that you may look like a baddie. It's large enough to be used as a sling and it works great as a water
The book finishes with a nice checklist that can also be found at the publisher's site.
