Hell no you do not need a BOB (Bug out bag). A BOB is also known as a “go bag”… it’s a pack you grab on the way out the door when all hell is breaking loose and you need to get to safety and survive for some period of time. That pack should allow you to extend the rule of 3s and the 5Cs. But the question is do you need one?
My quick answer that I posted on a vlog:
from the WTF WAS I THINKING category… forget all this nonsense and look into ultralight and super ultralight hiking. After that it’s all about selecting the colors that make you happy… but consider this… bugging out in a military context means you are being hunted by some other force. That could be law enforcement but let’s go with the foreign invader, crash of wall street or the zombie apocalypse. If everyone with a bug out bag decided to head for the hills the hills would be pretty crowded.That said; I live in Florida and we get the occasional hurricane. There are other areas of the country that have other type of disasters and having some comfort while avoiding natural events is a good thing but it’s important to note that none of this has lawlessness.
