Can you move out FAST? Your life may depend on it

Survival Backpacks

Survival Backpacks – Can Save Your Life

 

Do you have survival backpacks that you can pick up at a moment’s notice?

 

Now, I know that doesn’t seem like much of a cache, but what if the disaster only gives you enough time to grab a backpack and run? Can you train to be a survivalist?

Scary, isn’t it?

 

But that’s ok. You can figure if you’re living out of a backpack, it’s not going to be for very long. So, inside the place that you have stored your stockpile – have one backpack per family member ready to go. Join an online forum and the members can give you a list of the things you need in your kit for emergency evacuation, you will know exactly what kind of gear you can buy at a surplus store, how to get together with others to do group distributes to share the wealth. An emergency calls for fast action. Purchase the right stuff, maybe military grade gear, straps, the best knives – and how to pack your bug out bags for the best use of space.

 

  1. You should include a lightweight blanket – use it to wrap several cans of soups and canned meats so that they don’t clank against one another while you’re on the move. Look for one that insulates well without being too bulky.
  2. A flashlight of course. A can opener, a set of eating utensils. Some matches and candles.
  3. Several bottles of water. Make sure you have a water bottle that has a good filter in it as well, in case you need to filter some water.
  4. Some protein bars are a good choice to have for meal replacements and they don’t take a lot of space.
  5. A couple servings of cereal, and some powdered milk, not a lot, just enough for each person to make some to go with their cereal. Plan with tactical goals in mind.



Survival backpacks and kits

Remember, you’re not packing for weeks, just a couple days. You can make it work if you put the right things in your survival backpacks. Using group distributes programs will help you to purchase the right things so you can barter your goods for things you need. The ordinary items are sometimes the most valuable – toothpaste, personal grooming things like that are often forgotten and great for trading.

 

Everything you put in your backpack should be ready to eat, even the soups. So don’t get any condensed ones. You won’t want to be using your water supply to make soups. Maybe you’ve not eaten soup straight from the can, but if you need to do it, you can. It’s perfectly safe. As a survivalist, you will get a handle on the necessities! Buying them in bulk or surplus will provide you with awesome control over your own cache!

 

Before you take off, add a loaf of bread to someone’s pack so you will have that to share.

 

Believe it or not, you can fit all of this into a regular backpack.

 

I have four of them in my own survival cache.

 

Oh, I also threw a deck of cards in mine – we might play gin rummy while we are waiting for help.

 

We know we’ll have some food to eat.

    We always have a survival backpack ready to go where it is convenient to grab, and food and bottled water nearby. I think it’s really important to be ready for anything these days. We pack things like protein bars, meal replacement shake mixes and packets of tuna and dried fruit. I think cereal and bread might take up more room.

      This is great – so many people read about preparing and putting together a survival backpack but never actually get it done. Good job!

    Wow after reading this post, I am ready to get a survival backpack prepared. I will be going shopping tomorrow to get extra bottled water and non-perishables too. We need to all realize that anything can happen and it is best to be prepared.

      After the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma, we are even more aware of how quickly Mother Nature can bring us to our knees.

    This is essential for people to know. So many are unaware and take for granted how safe they have been.

      We all think about having water on hand, but what if all you can grab is a backpack? You’d be amazed how well you can stock one for every member of the family.

      It’s a bit frightening to think how quickly we could go from being comfortable in our homes to a disastrous situation. Planning for it now saves us from the devastation that could become our lot.

    Hmm… Though I started building up my survival supplies a while back, I had no idea that survival backpacks even existed. Thanks for the help

    Once my backpacks are put together, I weight them to make sure that the person who will carry it will be able to manage it. With a couple little kids, this is pretty important to consider too.

      Now this is a great point. It’s important to have the basics in every backpack, but you do have to think about who will have to manage the pack… Thanks for posting.
