Bug Out Bag (B.O.B.)

The item count will look daunting BUT remember you can pick and chose what you want to take.
You also don’t need to buy everything in one go.
You’re going to find that you’ve got most of the items anyway.

Your first purchase has got to be a bag to carry in all in.
The easiest thing to use is a rucksack.

Not because it’s cool or macho, it’s just easier to carry a load on your shoulders keeping your hands free.
Having said that, there aren’t any rules here.
You can use a roller bag, that’s OK.
For the disabled, old, or very young it’s easier.
