‘Bug-Out-Bag’ Info

(Note: Most of the length of this email is comprised of references and
resources.)

First, I want you all to think of Katrina or the L.A. riots while you’re
reading this. Providing I’ve interpreted the data properly, at almost any
time within the next six months to a year, those are the types of scenarios
we’l be seeing all across America. In any case, it isn’t a matter of
outcomes, it’s merely a matter of details and timing. It isn’t a matter of
“if” it will happen, it’s just a question of “when” it will happen.

It’s probably time to review your Get Out Of Dodge plans, check your grab
bags, double-check your routes of egress, travel arrangements and vehicle
maintenance, etc, and then check arrangements and supplies at your ‘final
objective.’

I have a small ’emergency’ grab bag and a few hand tools in the coat closet
right beside the door. Those tools include a machete, a double-bit ax, a set
of long-handled pruning loppers and a set of hand loppers. Just a few steps
outside the front door, I have a long-handled shovel, a garden rake and a
leaf rake. With those tools (including a few hundred feet of construction
string), I can build a damned nice little ’emergency’ earth-shelter home out
in the boonies and stay warm in -40 degree weather or stay dry in the worst
thundershower. …oh…and stuff fer startin’ a fire.

The location merely requires a water source …and a place to build an outdoor
privy. If I throw my garden seeds in that grab bag, come spring, I can build
an enclosed garden wherever I’m at, plant, grow, harvest, and get ready for
the next winter. …or have those seeds, blankets, tarps and tools ready to
contribute to the ‘pool’ of resources wherever we bug out to. (Even a
relatively small urban center such as Rapid City is no place to be in an
EOTWAWKI scenario.)

With that grab bag, I can be out the door in five minutes or less.

In a few days, the wife and I will be putting together our ‘secondary’ grab
bags, with a few clothes and some other odds and ends, including a couple of
old tarps we have laying around. (Basically a couple of makeshift backpacks
stocked as if we were preparing for a ‘camping trip.’)

A ‘tertiary’ grab bag or two will include things like pillows, extra blankets,
a pot, a pan, a couple of plates, a small grill, and the odd kitchen utensil
or two. Toss in some canned goods, dried goods and such… I can put that
together on the run with an hour’s notice.

If you happen to be someone’s ‘final objective’ in their G.O.O.D. plans, it’s
time to double-check your supplies and preparations in readiness for their
arrival. Extra pillows, bedding and blankets, winter clothing, toothbrushes,
soap, ammo, tools, first-aid gear, gardening supplies, re-arrange the
furniture to make room for the extra bodies, clean out the garage, shed and
the basement, etc., etc., etc. (If you don’t need it for extra storage, you’ll
need it for extra living quarters.)

Keep well in mind, that, to a great extent, ‘duty assignments’ – division of
labor – can only be made with the cooperation of others. e.g., you probably
don’t want that master carpenter playing in the garden when there’s things to
be built or repaired, unless those extra hands in the garden are absolutely
necessary. That said, there are times in a vegetable garden when it’s “all
hands on deck” and to hell with what else needs to be fixed or repaired,
especially at harvest time… Onna other hand, there’s times when things need
to be fixed and the garden can look after itself for awhile. Another example:
You probably don’t want the best cook in the ‘family’ playing babysitter all
day…or else he or she simply won’t have the time or energy to cook for
everyone.

Everyone helps wth everything, but everyone focuses on what they’re good at
and what they can do best within their physical limitations. However,
immediate priorities always trump specialities. Remember: It’s all about the
proper attitude. So, it boils down to communication and mutual cooperation…
or people will die. Survival is about cooperation, but it also about limiting
the physical risks that you take as individuals and as a group. Be safe.

Sick, lame or lazy, everyone *will* have to carry their own weight. For
‘guests’ in other people’s homes and bunkers, it won’t be a matter of ‘if you
don’t work, you don”t eat.’ It is much simpler than that: Whether it’s
gardening, planting, harvesting and storage of foods or whether it’s
preparing defensive and offensive plans and structures, If you don’t work,
there won’t *be* anything to eat. It either won’t be there because you didn’t
prepare it, or else a roving gang will steal it from you because you weren’t
ready to defend yourself.

The references and resources I’ve enclosed below are for your convenience and
are meant to assist you in doing your own research and preparations. The
material includes everything from emergency wilderness survival to gardening
and home defense. (If the urls are broken when you get this, stop and think
for a minute, please. You can cut and paste them back together, then paste
them to your internet search engine. Unless the page or website has gone
offline, it always works.)

  1. […] they needed to.  So a friend of ours, “Bones,” prepared this list.  Follow this link HERE for many links to […]

  2. […] 3) Any move by any government agency – including the UN, Local Law Enforcement, Federal Law Enforcement, US Troops, FEMA, DHS – against the citizens in order to confiscate weapons. (See Action Statement #10) […]

  3. What type guns would you recomend with your bug-out-bag? I assume you have no mode of transportation except walking.
    Great website!

    • freepeopleontheland Says:

      Joe,
      I perceive a bug-out bag as mostly for evasive purposes. If you are bugging-out to go join a ‘unit,’ then they will tell you what you need to bring based on your position/role in the unit. Since some of us will need to bug-out before they decide to round-up the Primary and Secondary ‘listers,’ there would be little desire to use something of this nature (you may carry one, but try not to use it due to its likely attracting of attention.

      Think low-profile. Think ways of staying off detection by the ‘grid.’ Blend in, but don’t be identifiable. This can be a challenge if they have your image using their new surveillance/scanning equipment as they can identify you by your walk alone.

      Your circumstances would likely be dictated by your retreat location. Will you be staying in a remote/rural area? A rifle (for distance) and early-warning devices would be best. If you are staying in an area with short notice of arrival due to physical circumstances of the terrain, you might prefer a handgun.

      Never underestimate the truth of “no weapon formed against you will prosper.” Let the natural evolution of the Holy Spirit at the Feast of the Tabernacle (the great ingathering), we released to its fullest potential in you. With this in mind, you might even select a slingshot and 5 smooth stones .

      Remember, “greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world!”

    Bones,
    I to have a similar bag and list of essentials. As many items as possible have dual usage. I can not list it all and explain function but all is light weight and back pack friendly. Dogs, for example are multi-functional as they can be used as defense, alarms, food and clothing.

    Joe might do well to consider an 18 in. 12 ga. shotgun with shells of 00 buck and small game loads. A 44 magnum hand gun is also reliable.

    I am always on the alert for fellow survivors, their affiliations and a realistic approach to the possible future of our society.

    I and my family are alone in our beliefs, save for one or two others who speak of it and go no further.

    Many essays have been written by me describing different scenarios and what I consider the best solutions. Starting at worst case to power outages.

    In a worst case situation for example, I do believe in a community effort to survive although I know that I have the skills and resolve to survive alone, organized resistance and defense would be more successful.
    Our people are totally unprepared for life or death survival and most will be victims before they know what went down.

    I would like to know more about this website and the possible exchange of information, theory, philosophy, observations, predictions, etc:

    In 1967 I swore an oath to protect and defend my country against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. The enemy is within.

    I have not been released from this promise nor will I allow any one entity to absolve me from my duty.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    AAK47
