Bug Out Bag

This is something I’ve been working on for a couple of months. This Bug Out Bag is for 2 people, the goal is in case of an emergency to be able to survive 72 hours to get to where you’re going (hopefully somewhere safer). I definitely need a new bag to carry everything and some other things like more food. But one thing that has been really helpful for me while putting this together has been to look at other people’s bags to get ideas. So I thought I would share what I’ve come up with so far.
