I seen a bug out list the other day that was just incredible. The lady pretty much had everything in the kitchen,bathroom,and garage on the list plus a mile long list of items to go with it. I guess if you were bugging out in a 45 ft tractor trailer it would be a good list! If some one says bug out I think pack. I know a car or truck are in a lot of plans. Depending on reason for bug out that could be good idea. Also depending on reason a terrible idea! If its an imminent disaster and there's time vehicle could be good,unless every other person in your area has same plan!
Putting even a tad of her list in a bug out bag you wouldn't be able to lift it. I think my pack is at or close to 50 lbs. Don't sound like a lot until you figure a bag of ready mix concrete weighs 50 lbs throw that on your back and try to run and evade,not to mention vest on under it full of rifle mags and misc. A gun in your hand and one on your hip and man o man you are loaded down!
A young soldier would have no problem with it, but we aren't young soldiers!
And not to disparage the lady it was a fine list for shelter or home prep kit. But just not a bug out list.
So that has me going over what I really need to haul butt away from trouble or towards it if I'm feeling froggy.
Always shelter,fire, food,water. With the essentials covered a lot of other things can be improvised! A good first aid kit,weapon, cleaning kit, of course are mandatory!
Oh boy list growing again. I have a small tent on my pack,could probably get by with small tarp or piece of plastic.
Bugging out it seems is a never ending puzzle. Will it be for a short while or is whats on my back gonna be it for a long time? That question changes everything!
Well just food for thought!
