Bug out baby!

So, as I was considering my own bug out bag, I came across the question of whether or not to give my daughter her own bug out bag (BoB), or for her to just rely on ours. So i took to YouTube to see if there were any other preppers out there who felt the same and this is one of the videos I found. This guys Bob is actually pretty well put together. Of course every persons will be different based on their location, age, scenario presented with but I thought it was a great starting point to get you thinking. Those of us with little ones know that they too require a lot of basic necessities for survival. Check it out-

Another Personal Update

Picked up some new walkie talkies the other day. Actually excited to use them and really determine their range. Product description said 10miles but that's never the case. Great to have 2-way radios for several reasons:

1. Great for camping or large shopping areas. Keeps people in touch and close.

2. It is also a more reliable replacement to cell phones when your out in the bush. Radio signals are more easily transmitted than cell phone signals are.

3. Its also great for tactical purposes. Great to have a way to quickly communicate to my wife if i have to leave the house to find food or supplies in a teotwawki situation.

My next purchase is going to be some Mylar bags and oxygen absorbers. Really wanna get started on some long term storage food. Just finished installing some new shelves in my laundry room that will give me the space needed to save food and water.

My personal update

Today was a good day and a lot got accomplished, matter of fact, this whole week was good. Bought a new holster for my gun and a machete for my wife, which she loves. Picked up a lot more canned food and stocked up on some other supplies that could become helpful in a shtf situation. However, today was especially good because I finally had the time to go and fire off the new hand gun, my Sig p250c. What an amazing gun, ill tell you now, I'm really satisfied with that purchase.

I learned about the food storage techniques through a few awesome videos, and I wanted to give a shout-out to all the authors of those videos. Thank you for your effort and time. But by utilizing the Mylar bag/oxygen method, and cross loading several buckets, I think ill be able to maximize my food reserves. Plus it'll be easy to grab several buckets in a run and have all kinds of food to take with you, as opposed to hoping the one bucket you have is filled with rice instead of oil or salt.

I wanna go over my bug out bag just a few more times because I feel like its important to have it. The things that are in there can save my life, and so in an emergency I need to have the right tools. That will be my next weeks job:

Fix the bug out bag.

Oh and here is my shooting target from today.
