    Bug Out Bag Contents?

    Post by Cabrillo-1 on Wed Feb 03, 2016 10:06 pm

    If you have to evacuate your home on short notice, or "bug out," and only have time to grab a bag or two, what do you have in it?

    Do you have a bug out bag and if so, what's in it?
    How long do you expect it to keep you without need to resupply?

    The first two items make a whole lot of sense.

    If you think of what you might need for the next full night or day, it really narrows down to few essentials. You might also put in identification and medical info of some sort and a spare set of car keys.

    We live in a 4-sty condo with the master on the 4th floor. We have a 35 foot rescue ladder that we can use from the balcony to the ground.
