Bugout Bag; The Basics

This list is very basic and contains only the bare minimums for a Bugout bag. I made
this list to give people a general idea of the things they should have in their Bugout bag.

1. Food - General items like Beef jerky, trail mix and power bars

2. Water - Carry a 2 litre bottle with your bug out bag and be sure to pick up a ECH2O
                  water bottle as you will need one when you run out of water.

3. Medicine - Things like Ibuprofen, allergy pills, vitamins and others you may want or
                        need to have with you in the event of an emergency

4. Hygiene - Hand Sanitizer, Wet-Towellettes, Rubbing Alcohol, Neosporin etc.

5. Navigation - A map of your region + a larger map possibly of your country and a compass

6. Light - LED flash light and back up batteries. LED flash lights are great because they are
                 really bright and last for a very long time. Aurora Fire Starter for heat and cooking

7. Weapons - Firearm(s) and a knife

8. Clothing - Pack a second set of clothes appropriate to the area you live in, dont forget
                      extra socks and underwear. Extra pair of shoes/boots

9. Tools - The Crovel

10. Shelter - At the very least carry a tarp with you or get yourself a 1 man tent.

ECH2O (Echo 2) Water Filtration Bottles

The Ech2o (Echo 2) Water filtration bottles are a great item to have with you whenever you are out hiking, camping or enjoying outdoor activities where you wouldn't have fresh clean water to drink.

"PureWaterFreedom presents the world's first Stainless Steel Filtered Water Bottle.

Enjoy filtered tap water on the go instantly filtered as you drink through the ech2o sport top! This exclusive top removes up to 99.99% of pollutants for up to 100 gallons of great tasting filtered water.

Each 25 oz. 304 food grade stainless steel water bottle is non-leaching, BPA-free, reusable, lightweight, and taste-neutral.

The Ionic-Adsorption Micro-Filtration System is an entire water filtration plant within a portable bottle. The patented Ionic-Absorption Micro-Filtration reduces up to 99.99% of the following zones of contamination: * Aesthetics: unpleasant taste, odor, clarity, chlorine, sand, sediment and Radon 222. * Biological: Pathogens such as cryptosporidium, giardia & other cysts and spores. * Chemicals: toxic chemicals, detergents, pesticides and other harmful industrial and agricultural wastes. * Dissolved Solids: heavy metals such as aluminum, asbestos, copper, lead, mercury and others."

"For four days we camped at just over ten thousand feet and I drank water exclusively from the Echo2 water bottle with the Ionic Filtration system from every stream and lake along the way. Happily I can say the water not only tasked great but was good to drink. I had no ill effects! This is a great water bottle for camping."

Tilapia Farming

This is a great website I found about farming your own Tilapia. The Tilapia can have up to 1000 offspring!

"That's right!  Home Tilapia farming offers a solution to the ever-more-difficult problem of finding a fish at the store that is fresh, clean, affordable, and virtually organic.
With home-grown Tilapia, you will have intimate knowledge of its whereabouts from its birth to your dinner table!
Can you say that about that tasteless, overdone salmon fillet you had at that franchise restaurant last time? how about that tuna salad from a can! (I've always wondered how they get a tuna to fit in such a small can. Hmmm.)
The key to Tilapia farming at home is the "breeder colony".
Our breeder colonies consists of 6 pure breed orange Mossambica females and 1 pure breed Hornorum male. You can easily breed them in a home aquarium!
And in this website I'll show you how you can turn your backyard into a Tilapia farm!"
You can check out all the great information here:

Underground Shelters

"Many people ask us how could one survive a major disaster, whether natural or man made or a combination thereof. One way nature protects its critters is getting them under ground. Ground hogs and ants are good examples. They have been around for a long time. So has nature.

A properly built and installed underground shelter is an excellent way to improve your chances for long term survival. The Survival Center has been building and installing under ground shelters since the late 1970’s. Over the years we have refined what really works well and not so well."

Aurora Fire Starter

The Aurora Fire Starter is a must have item when it comes to survivability, check this out!

Do it yourself: PBR Burner

What You Need:

2 Aluminum Cans (Beer or Pop Cans)
1 Piece of Sandpaper
1 Exacto-Knife Or Other sharp blade
1 Small piece of insulation (fiberglass)
1 Thumb Tack
1 Bottle of Rubbing Alcohol
1 Lighter or Matches

Step 1

Firstly you will want to drain the can and ensure its empty. You then
want to use the piece of sand paper you have to smooth out the can
and remove any paint that may be on the can. Then you want to measure
up about 1 to 1.5 inches from the base of the can and slice it off
as cleanly as possible.

You will want to repeat this process for the 2nd can as well.

Step 2

Now you'll want to grab some of that fiberglass you have and place a
piece of it into the base of one end of can you have cut off. Once you
have the fiberglass in you will want to fit the 2 pieces together. Do
your best to make sure it is even and tight all the way around as you
do not want any fuel to escape.

Step 3

Grab the thumb tack that you have and poke 5 holes into the center of the top
can. (Use the pattern for 5 from a dice) Then you will want to poke 16 evenly
spaced holes around the outer ring of the can.

The top of your can should look something like this:

Step 4

Using your rubbing alcohol carefully pour 3-5 teaspoons into the 5 center holes
of your burner. clean up any spills you may have made, and light it.

Congratulations you just built your first PBR Burner.
