What’s the weirdest thing YOU have in your bug out bag?
Some comments we received:
Comment #1: Chewing gum…because you never know when you’ll need something sticky – ask MacGyver, he’ll tell you.
Comment #2: Well being a single man with a son you might say its the stack of pads and handful of tampons. But the are they for good reason I swear.
Comment #3: Instead of vodka I’d recommend Everclear Grain Alcohol. 190 proof has so many uses. a little goes a long ways.
Comment #4: I have rat traps in my bag which might be weird to some, good for small game. I also have a piece of garage door insulation. The silver bubble wrap looking kind. It’s thin, light weight, waterproof, it softens the ground to sleep on and reflects heat back. I fold it and line my pack with it so it doesn’t take up any room.
Comment #5: 18″ serving spoon, and a pair of 18″ tongs. For when you just don’t wanna touch something(cuz it’s hot or bad for you), and a 10′ pole is overkill.
