Bug Out Bag, n.
The thing you want with you when the dead want with you too.

What if you had to run for your life, right now? What would you take? Your Bug Out Bag should be ready and waiting to help you survive for 72 hours. Key components? Here's what you need, in seven easy steps.

  1. Some water. Water is great. Or Milo? Milo is delicious. Mmmm. Okay, I said some, but realistically you probably want quite a lot of water. And perhaps some whisky, for all the sanity.
  2. Food - some biltong. Maybe not some McDonalds. Can it survive getting wet and stood upon? That's disgusting, don't eat that. Golly.
  3. Clothing - if it'd help you avoid the walk or hike of shame, it should work. If it jingles, or flashes, or would generally entrance a cat, then perhaps it's not the greatest idea in the world. But hey, you're getting survival advice from some trapped dude on the internet.
  4. Shelter - a tent, something cosy. Tents are more cosy than you'd expect - their tendency to allow light through, and their thin walls, mean that you'll get suddenly night-time cuddles more often than you'd think.
  5. First aid kit - more than a plaster I guess. To be honest, nothing is stopping a bite, and you probably aren't treating a bullet wound with any success. Let's not give up too much space that could go to 1. and 2. above. Especially the latter part of 2.
  6. Lights, butter knives, fire-making... I guess this is a cheat category. You got me. Points for observation for having read this far though.
  7. Weapon - you are fleeing the mindless hordes of the walking dead, right? You will be - just follow me. That's not the greatest rallying cry, now that I say it out aloud.

What would you take? Think carefully. Then grab whatever you can and make a run for it - life will find a way. Aweh.
