We are celebrating the redesign of the Prepper Academy and our new course “Bugged Our – Off the Grid” So Lisa and I decided to run a bug out bag contest. You will really want to check this out! It’s not just the bag, it’s the $200 worth of supplies we are throwing into the bug out bag.
Call this an everyday carry, a bug out bag, a 72 hour bag or just a bag with a bunch of cool supplies in it the winner is going to be set up.
If you haven’t quite gotten to building your bug out bag this would be a great way for you to get a huge jump start without breaking the bank. And if you have, it never hurts to have a few extras right?
Bug out bags and/or an everyday carry should be one of the first things on our minds when we begin our preparedness plans. Regardless of whether you are worried about an EMP or just want to be ready if a natural disaster strikes you home having a bag set up with the supplies you need that you can just grab and go is essential.
What’s in the bug out bag?
Everything in the picture above will be included, but there are some things that we added that aren’t in the picture.
550 Paracord Lanyard with a flint, steel and whistle clasp.
2 Glow Sticks.
4GB flash drive for important documents.
And whatever we add to it before the contest ends.
$200 worth of supplies so far!
Make sure and Like us on Facebook and/or sign up to get updates emailed to you about the rules and what we have added to the bug out bag.
Make sure and share this with your friends (on your left) because the more interest we get, the more we pack into the bug out bag.
The bug out bag contest begins on Monday the 10th of March so but we are giving the first 50 people who sign up 5 bonus points. What do these points mean? Have a look at the rules so far…
