The Beginner's Guide to Bug Out Bags (BOB): The 72h Emergency Survival SHTF Evacuation Kit

The risks of a small-scale SHTF (Sh*t Hit The Fan) scenario or localized emergency happening at some point is high enough, where having a BOB (Bug Out Bag) is a worthwhile idea for most people. A good 72 hour survival kit with enough kit, gear, food, water, & supplies to help you evacuate to your predetermined bug out location.
