Also you need enough water to last for 3 days, a 3 day supply of water is about all the water you can carry if you had to bug out of your location, Now if your at home I would personally recommend enough water for at least 7 to 10 days, or more, store as much water as you possibly can, water should be # 1 on you list, that’s how important it is to survival, Water is life without it you die, so store lot’s of water, You should also have other essential supplies for your “Bug Out” bag and your home, such as a good flashlight, not that cheap flashlight you found at the 99 cent store or Harbor Freight you want a good flashlight, trust me on this, and you also need good batteries. Places like Big 5 and Bass Pro have decent flashlights, go get you one or two you will be happy you did. Also a good first aid kit and tourniquet to stop any severe bleeding is a must and falls into the # 2 spot of importance, My personal recommendation for a first aid kit is the military style I.F.A.K from Refuge Medical https://www.refugemedical over at Bear Independent. and if you don’t know who Bear Independent is, you really need to check his Youtube channel out, he puts out great content for TWAWKI and or TSHF, ammunition for you firearm, a rain poncho and a wool blanket.
