30 Days of Preparing for Spring Storms and the Stinging Heat of Summer Day 7: Repack Your Bug Out Bag

By Suzanne Wiley published on in Camping & Survival

I hope that for winter you changed out your bug out bag’s warm weather gear for cold weather gear and added a few things such as emergency Mylar blankets to keep you warm. Now is the perfect time to switch out your bug out bag’s gear again.Of course, keep the essentials, such as food, water, flashlight, multi-tool, and a fire starter. However, heavy wool socks, coats, gloves and beanies can go. Switch those items out for lightweight, long-sleeve light colored t-shirts, a bandana, and rain gear. Keep your boots or sturdy athletic shoes and moisture wicking socks. Though comfortable, flip-flops and sandals are not ideal during a bug-out emergency.

Suzanne Wiley started shooting at a young age when her older brother bought a Marlin 60 and taught her to shoot. She took to shooting and developed a love for it when she realized she was a natural with a .22 LR rifle at summer camp. Suzanne has been an outdoor adventurer since she can remember-being from the Ozarks, there were bountiful caves, national parks, lakes, and camping spots to explore. From a young age, she has camped, fished, rode horses, went ATV exploring, rappelling, and even dabbled in beginner spelunking.
