Its causing many otherwise smart people to ignore the very real threats produced by both natural and man-made disasters. Thats why Absolute Rights has published the ultimate answer to disaster emergency preparedness with their Special Report Get Out Of Dodge. Its a 63-page digital e-book thats available to Absolute Rights subscribers with all the evacuation, communication, and protection information they could ever need, said the article. The Special Report helps people rely on their skills and preparation in weather emergencies such as floods, hurricanes, blizzards, and earthquakes. It also provides tactics for surviving riots, terrorist attacks, and nuclear disasters. And of course, it emphasizes the importance of packing a bug out bag well in advance of any necessary evacuation. Emergency preparedness planning has taken on a whole new meaning, said the article.

Dams burst, power plants go down, pipelines explode, oil spills occur, and other man-made structures and facilities can fail, resulting in disaster. Outbreaks of sickness and disease could also warrant an evacuation. We cannot control when, where, or how disasters strike. But we can control how prepared we are to deal with a disaster. There is a fine line between order and chaos and sometimes that line can be measured in seconds. When every second counts, having a plan and the tools to see that plan through are crucial to survival. The Bug Out Bag is your #1 resource in your overall Bug Out Plan and may very well be your key to survival one day.

Gear Review: Maxpedition Bags for Bugging Out
In this article, the team at the website worked with Bates to form a list to help people be prepared for the unthinkable, listing a number of essentials every person needs. Hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes and more can all cause a lot of panic when they occur, which means people should always plan ahead. In the article, which has a link provided below, the recommendation is to have this bug-out bag stored near the front door for easy last-minute access. Most of the things included, such as water, food, shelter and clothing, is pretty obvious, but weapons, tools and a radio might not be as much. No one ever knows for sure when the next storm might hit. From Hurricane Sandy to the Carrington Event , there is always the potential that a person must resort to the bug-out bag. Preparation remains the key to survival.

How to Make a Bug Out Bag: Your 72-Hour Emergency Evacuation Survival Kit
This pack can be synched down to almost nothing. Or, on the opposite side, the PALS straps on the outside of the bag allow for the addition of any number of smaller bags. Maxpedition offers a wide variety of add-ons that will allow for ultimate customization. The Falcon II has an MSRP of $155, but sells for less at many places on line. The Maxpedition Jumbo EDC (Every Day Carry) As for the bag at your side, again Im going with Maxpedition. The Jumbo EDC is very ergonomic. The wide shoulder strap places the bag right on your hip. My favorite feature of the EDC is the slim pocket behind the main compartment. Lined with Velcro, the pocket is the perfect place for a concealed holster. Maxpedition makes a simple strap holster that fits most pistols and revolvers. With this hidden in the pocket, the bag becomes a convenient means of off body carry . This Beretta PX4 in 9mm is the perfect option for a bug-out pistol and fits perfectly in this holster and the back pocket. If I have a bone to pick with the EDC, it would be that the main flap doesnt overlap the edges of the main compartment. Though it closes securely, the flap leaves just enough of a gap along the sides that contents can get wet in a heavy rain. But thats it. Everything else is ideal. I like the EDC so much that it has become my daily carry bag. It keeps me organized. While the Falcon II is a small backpack, the Jumbo EDC is huge. It has an MSRP of $79.99. Not bad for this level of performance. Something to think about I think too many people focus on what goes in the bag and then neglect the bag itself. Ive hiked thousands of miles, literally. I have seen trips ruined by poor equipment. If the bag isnt comfortable, durable and appropriately sized, it may not work. All of your preparations could be useless. And think also about weight. You bag should be no more than 30 pounds45 is the maximum. When I hike, I carry a pack that weighs just over 15 pounds (without food and water). Too much weight is not a problem, really, as you can always start heavy and ditch what you dont need. But it is good to know what you can comfortably carry. Try it out. Take your bug out bag, or bags, for a spin and see how it goes.
