Any good scout knows that he must always be ready in the event of a disaster. Don’t wait for an apocalypse to ensue to start planning your escape routes, making emergency contacts, and gathering survival supplies. Chances are the supplies you’ll need won’t be readily available in the face of a disaster.

The trick to stocking up on survival supplies is to eliminate luxuries and only stock what you need. You don’t want so many supplies that carrying them will place an undue burden on you or your family. Enter the Bug Out Bag, a satchel or large pouch filled with survival and first aid supplies, as well as emergency food and water.
