What is a bug out bag?

A bug out bag is a collection of items intended to aid an individual for a minimum of 72 hours from adverse circumstances. A bug out bag typically provides ways to create a fire, filter water, and setup a shelter at the very minimum. Other commonly found items in a bug out bag include food, cutting tools, and first-aid kits.

Who needs a bug out bag?

The short answer, everyone. We have all been stuck in situations where we are extremely frustrated, and usually a bug out bag would have made our situation much less drastic. We recommend not only having a bug out bag at home, but also carrying one in your vehicle so you are prepared in case you break down.

So, what is eBugout?
