Everybody’s talking about bug out bags and how important they are for survival, specifically in bug out scenarios, when you’re supposed to leave your home and go someplace else. That’s when a backpack filled with supplies will be of tremendous help.
But what if things don’t go as planned and you wake up with no fuel, get into a car crash or you find out that your bug out location has already been occupied Although unlikely if you’ve done a good job planning your escape, it is possible that you’ll spend several weeks to months with no roof over your head. For this you need a larger and more equipped bug out bag, called an INCH bag, which stands for “I’m Never Coming Home”.
Besides the usual bug out bag items you already have, you’re also going to need to add some for hunting, fishing, cooking, more clothes, maybe even a larger bushcraft knife. It all depends on what you already have in your BOB prior to the upgrade.
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.
