Bills Bug Out Bag

Bills Bug Out Bag

In this video 365preppers.com’s owner Bill covers the contents of his bug out bag. It’s important to keep in mind that not every person see’s the sames use or requirements from the items they keep their Bugout bag. It’s good however to watch these videos with the understanding that it’s called prepping, not “Prepared” because at no time will anyone be fully prepared for every¬†major disaster. But instead we can research other supplies that others are using, and add and subtract those items from the current running list we have. After shooting this video with my brother Bill, I immediately decided on some items that I would take from his ideas, and put them in my own bailout bag.   Keep in mind this is one of the first videos we have shot. We don’t have the best hardware for shooting these types of videos, but we do however have 3 gopros. The first video we did, How To Build An Emergency Heater¬†had pretty bad audio quality. We helped fix that a bit by altering the protective box the camera goes in to. As time goes on we will invest in a better camera, but just in case you prefer reading, here is the complete list mentioned in the video.

We like getting our kids involved in the learning process and look forward to next summer so we can take them out and make some new videos for you!

    • A Slingshot is a wonderful recommendation, and is actually something we have been discussing adding to our supplies. We have just received our .22 air powered riffle which we are excited to test out, might have to make a slingshot our next addition. Thanks for stopping by!
