Most in the prepper community know that a bug out bag is a kit designed to keep you alive for 72-hours while ‘bugging out’ from a disaster situation.
A bug out bag is intended for the relatively short duration of evacuation rather than long-term survival, and is focused on keeping you alive while getting from point-A (the disaster area) to point-B (safety-refuge), or simply keeping you alive for 72-hours while sheltering in place.
Here’s what should go inside a bug out bag:
The reason that the bag should contain enough supplies for 72-hours:
1. It is generalized that disaster relief may take that long to reach people in a disaster zone.
2. It is generally an adequate amount of time to bug out from the disaster location to a place of refuge and/or resupply.
