Survival :Tips for the Obvious

It’s to late if you need it and don’t have it!

 Bug-Out Survival No-Brainer Tips:

1) Keep In Shape!  You can’t hike to a Bug-out-location successfully when you are overweight and out-of-shape.

2) Keep your Bug-Out-Bag “Mobile weight”.  Rule of Thumb Keep your Mobile Bag no more than 1/3 of your total body weight.  A bag is useless if you can not carry it for long distances without fatigue.

3)  Take the time to talk to Survival experts and fellow Outdoor enthusiasts for Bag packing techniques. 

4)  Remember Essentials: Food, Water, Warmth, Fire Starting Material, Filtration and Purification gear, Knife or sharp tools (3 1/2″ or less), Rope (550 Paracord), Rain gear / trashbags to keep you and gear dry, Signalling and communication, light / illumination, First Aid Gear and don’t forget directional gear (compass, maps of terrain).

5) Don’t go cheap on your Bag!  Your bag carries everything you need to survive.  It is your insurance life-line. Suggested Bags: Drago Bags, Maxpedition Bags, Snug Pack Bags. 

6) Like your bag…Don’t cheap out on your knife or survival tool!  Cutting Rope, Food, packaging, seat belts, clothing etc is essential to survival situations.  A dull knife or survival tool is a very dangerous item which usually result in personal injury. 

Prepare now…Protect Later!

Drugs & Survival Do Not Mix!

According to the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, on half of all Americans are dependant on a prescription medicine.  One in every six Americans is taking three or more medications daily to sustain health.

What happens if due to a natural disaster, your distribution channels for buying prescription drugs is shut down.  How long would it take before society began experiencing adverse effects from individuals (100 million individuals) crashing from drug withdrawal.

As with many Americans, we all know someone taking something… Antidepressents, Mood Enhancers, Restless Leg, Cholesteral, Heart Disease, Diabetes, the list is endless.  What to do?

As a rule of thumb, in a pre-packed first aid bag, it is essential for anyone taking Pharmaceuticals for daily function, to have at least one months worth of Prescription Drug and a paper prescription from your physician.  In any emergency situation, Evacuation, Flood, Fire – having these items pre-packed in a First Aid Bug Out Bag could be the difference between life and death.

Prepare now…Protect Later

Brief Description -A bug-out bag  is a portable kit that contains the items one would require to survive for seventy-two hourswhen evacuating from a disaster. It is also known as a 72-hour kit, a grab bag, a battle box, and other popular names include “Personal Emergency Relocation Kits” (PERKs) GO Bag and GOOD (Get Out Of Dodge) bag. The focus is on evacuation, rather than long-term survival, distinguishing the bug-out bag from a survival kit, a boating or aviation emergency kit, or a fixed-site disaster supplies kit. The kits are also popular in the survivalism subculture.
