What's in your Emergency Bug Out Bag?
by Bob Harvey

It pays to be prepared so in case of a major emergency like a hurricane, tornado, or worse you are not caught un-prepared. This is the equipment used in South Florida Gun Schools Intro to Swamp Survival 3 day Course.   My Bug-Out-Bag has a solid 3 day plan and minimum equipment.
