Where do you settle when it comes to survival bags? Backpacks, sling packs, messenger bags, commuter bags and so on and so forth. There seems to be no limit to the amount of survival bags that one can have on hand. Thus, we find ourselves talking about stockpiling bags that are just as important as anything else.
When it comes to prepping you know that there are as many survival bags as there are things to put inside of them. That is a mind-boggling thing but its part of prepping. You have to decide which survival bags make sense for you and get those packed and ready for use.
Let’s take a look at some of these bag and pack types.
- Bugout Bag
- INCH Bag
- GOOD Bag
- EDC Bag
- Get Home Bag
- Evacuation Bag
Just to name a few!
There is a purpose in all of these bags. It’s an important part of this experience. You see, we want to have extra everything and we want to have the right things for every situation. This means that backpacks are worth stockpiling.
There may come a time when you need to consider tossing some bags to make room for new stuff. I challenge you to put those bags to use and decide where you can be effective with those bags. Does everyone in your family have a legitimate bugout bag? How are they outfitted?
One of the most underutilized uses for bags is to roll a bag up tightly, rubber band it, and shove it down into another bag that you are actively using. Suddenly you have another bag option just like that! This is great if you are going somewhere to grab resources or forage for food.
In essence, we can never have too many bags. In times of collapse or SHTF, we may also be able to exponentially help out another person with a survival bag of their own. Your spare bag could become their bugout bag. So be sure you keep those bags and keep building your stock of them.
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.
