I hope, before last 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 your bug out bag’s load out for Summer.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.
