What is the ideal Bug out Bag or Ditch Kit? The Purpose is to provide you the ability to survive the current situation you find your self facing and travel to or create your own sanctuary until the situation is resolved if it ever is. I believe the bag should provide you a means to provide for yourself in the following areas, either directly or indirectly. -Security -Shelter (Including Clothing) -Sustenance -Communication -Medical/ Health -Personal Information (Including Financial, Insurance, Personal Records) -Transportation (Including Land Navigation=On Foot) This bag should be able to get you through what I believe are the three stages of disaster. 1. Initial Stage-On set of situation providing primary resources 2. Sustained Stage- Duration of situation, using emergency resources, providing means to secure stable sources of resources. 3. Rebuild Stage- Final Stage, rebuilding Would love to learn what each of you carries in your bags.
