Having a tarp as part of your bug out bag is essential, it’s lighter than a tent, easily carried on your backpack and so versatile… you can make 66+ shelters with a single tarp. I personally have a 10 x 10 blue tarp but I want to purchase either a brown or camouflage tarp just to blend in more if I had to bug out.
Just check out all the different shelters and structures you can make. Amazing. Try some out and if you do, please take photos and post them to our Facebook wall. We would love to see them. A tarp can also come in very handy if you want to add an extra layer of waterproofing and shade to a tent if you are camping.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
