The Bug Out Bag Checklist

For the past two days I have tried to put together a list of items for a bug out bag. Some I have come across are ridiculous in the amount of stuff they think they can put into a bag or carry after it is filled. I have tried to put together a list of items that would be necessary for bugging out keeping in mind that any backpack should be loaded by ounces and not by pounds. I’m sure that my list will cause some debate and i am willing to accept if I missed something or I’m wrong about something else. I was trying to include everything that would be needed for immediate survival and light for foot travel. If you have any suggestions leave them in the comment section. This is a preview of The Prepper Notebook I am putting together and hope to have out soon. With the way things are these days having a checklist would help a lot of people to stay organized during this chaotic time. Enjoy!
