5.0 von 5 Sternen That's how you write a step by step guide 13. Dezember 2012
Von Prudentis
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
No boring prosa in this book.
From the first pages you get short, spot on descriptions of items and techniques for preparing your b.o.b.
What's more, the author is not a typicult shtf nutbag but seems to be an experienced hicker and outdoor expert.
So he doesn't bore you with loads of unnecessary information, why you should prepare for the end of the world.
In the first chapters he mentions real world disasters in recent history, where having a B.O.B. on hand, could have
saved your life. Even if you don't plan on building a B.O.B, every hiker and camper should read this book.
Highly recommended.

How to Get the Most Out of B.O.B.

"Build the Perfect Bug Out Bag: Your 72-Hour Disaster Survival Kit" by Creek Stewart is a well-thought-out book that is clearly formatted and illustrated to help convey the information within. The format of this book reminds me of another excellent book titled "Build the Perfect Survival Kit" by John McCann, that I also highly recommend. This book is excellent for the novice and experienced Prepper, as well as the conventional camper and survivalist. This book provides an excellent blueprint for compiling components for a Bug Out Bag (BOB), as well as selecting the perfect BOB to carry all the discussed gear and components. The gear discussed in this book covers everything from field camping tools (pocket tools, ax, shovels, etc.), hygienic items, various environmental clothing, lightweight shelters (tarps, etc.), field bedding (sleeping bags, hammocks, etc.), water purification, rations and ignition systems for fire making. All the equipment discussed in this book predominantly focuses on the items being lightweight and provide multiple use items, which is a common theme when selecting items for survival situation. Additionally, this book provides a host of inset text boxes providing valuable survival tips, in addition to the information instructing you how to develop your own BOB. This book also had a few interesting chapters that stood out to me that I think are worth mentioning. Chapter 13 covers information on protection and self-defense, with some discussion of the self-defense mentality. Although this chapter was very brief it did however cover all the salient points, as this topic alone could be its own book. Another interesting chapter covered some basic information about bugging out with pets. This is a topic I have not seen covered in other books and found it enlightening. Finally, chapter 17 on mental and physical preparedness was another chapter providing the reader basic information on the topic, which is not generally covered in book of this type. I personally believe this to be one of the most important chapters in the book, without a strong body it is hard to keep a strong mind. And the mind is the most important tool the Prepper or survivalist will ever have. Overall I highly recommend this book and believe that the experienced and novice will learn something from this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen GRAB and GO!! Pack for a 72 hour disaster--and don't forget Rover! 14. Mai 2012
Von Joanna Daneman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The Bug Out Bag is a 72 hour emergency kit, and covers many situations, so this is a good book to read, in my opinion. For example, I did have a cigarette lighter and a box of matches but the author discusses firestarting (using mag strip strike lighter, like camping emergency gear) and also PETS.

Oh!!! How many of us have pets (a third of us, including me!) so to avoid a repeat of the Katrina pet situation, you need a fold out food and water bowl and some food. I discovered our pet store locally has freeze-dried cat food that is more compact and very nutritious. Can be eaten right out of the pouch. For dogs, the author packs a mini-pack that a dog could wear (a big dog, not a Yorkie.) Big dogs eat more, so they get to tote their own chow. When I built a grab-and-go pack, I didn't have a dog. Now I have two. So this book alerted me to how to handle the pooch situation.

The author discusses bag styles, the issues of traveling solo versus with a family, the order to pack (cooking on bottom, clothes and bedding on top) and how much of what to have for 3 days of disaster. Even more important, how to store and rotate the stock items, how to purify water (because your bottles may run out) and much more. There are tables for what to bring for how many. Oh boy! I did NOT have a tarp. What about one of those single sleeping bag shelters? Sleeping bag? What about an inflatable mat? My bag is too small for a 72 hour emergency! Good thing I read this!

By the way, this is the WEATHER RADIO I have in my livingroom, but I packed an emergency crank shortwave-am-fm-weather radio in my pack because communication is vital in an emergency and it could be much-needed distraction and entertainment.

Summary: EVERYONE needs this book. Seriously.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Most Detailed and Extensive BOB Book Yet 3. Juli 2013
Von J. Robideau - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
While many books about bug-out-bags are full of lists with little in the way of detailed information, this book bucks the trend!

The amount of information contained in this book about the various aspects of the bug-out-bag is dizzying. The author doesn't just provide lists, but for each item, he explains it's purpose, your options, and alternatives. He discusses the pros and cons of the different types of each particular piece of gear like stoves, packs, shelters, etc. He explains the situations where each option might be superior to the other. The author is not dogmatic about one particular method, setup, or piece of gear. He offers up the information for you, the reader, to make an educated decision.

This book even includes information about bugging out with children, pets, or handicapped persons.

Fantastic illustrating photos are found throughout this book. They are well sized and formatted so that they perfectly complement the commentary and help to clarify exactly what the author is explaining.

Highly recommended for:
- Preppers or survivalists who want to be ready to go on the move in a disaster or emergency situation
- Anyone who wants to tweak their BOB and make sure they aren't missing an important piece of gear
- Anyone with questions about the contents of a Bug Out Bag

If you enjoy reading about survival and prepping, I also recommend Ultralight Survival: Make a Small and Light Bug Out Bag That Could Save Your Life for specific advice on creating the lightest and most efficient bug-out-bag possible.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Be Prepared For The Worst - Highly Recommended 2. Juni 2012
Von C. Hill - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
"Build the Perfect Bug Out Bag" is a great resource for anyone interested in assembling their first "Bug Out Bag" (BOB) or for those that want to explore additional ideas for an existing BOB. A BOB is a portable emergency kit that contains everything required to keep you alive for at least 72-hours and should be customized for the owner's specific needs. The author, Creek Stewart, is clearly an expert in the survival field and has written this practical and comprehensive guide to ensure that you are prepared if an emergency forces you to leave your house.

The book is laid out very logically, starting with Creek's philosophy behind making a BOB, options on the selection of a backpack to suite your specific needs, and includes chapters covering specific supplies and skills arranged by subcategories, including:

"Water & Hydration" - covers transporting and an in depth look at purification options
"Food & Food Preparation" - how to determine your needs and considerations for your "Cook Kit"
"Clothing" - selection of clothing options, customized to your climate
"Shelter & Bedding" - an excellent chapter that explores sleeping options, particularly important for those that don't have camping experience
"Fire" - perhaps the most important chapter if you find yourself having to actually rough it in the woods
"First Aid" - very good section on the selection of items for a practical first aid kit
"Hygiene" - so very important, covered nicely (but I carry much more toilet paper than recommended)
"Tools" - practical advice in an area where new preppers to go overboard
"Lighting" - required for seeing and signalling, but surprisingly does not mention "night vision" options
"Communications" - this section is about information gathering and retention of personal documents, often overlooked but very important
"Protection & Self Defense" - well thought out section on developing the right mentality and preparing to defend yourself, your loved ones, and your supplies but, as the author points out, it is important to know your local laws
"Miscellaneous Supplies" - important list of items to include in your BOB, including 550 Paracord and the always useful Duct Tape
"Bugging Out With Pets" - a good chapter covering the considerations required if you plan on bringing pets along when bugging out
"BOB Organization & Maintenance" - now that you have all of your "stuff", it needs to be accessible and in usable condition when you need it
"Mental & Physical Preparedness" - perhaps should have been called "Practice Makes Perfect", you need to know that you can carry your BOB and correctly use the contents, before you actually need to in an emergency
"The Bug Out Plan" - covers the need to have a plan, including where you will go and how you will get there
"Bug Out Resources and At-Home Exercises" - a very comprehensive section covering on-line resources for supplies and information, checklists (based on your skill level), ways to keep you skills current, and how to build a reasonably affordable BOB in one trip to a "Big Box" store

I am an experienced prepper and was surprised how much I got out of this book and am fairly sure there was something new or useful to me in each chapter, but especially in the "BOB Organization & Maintenance" section. Here are some additional useful items that are included in my BOB:

* Eton ARCFRX2WXR Am/fm Weather Radio Solar Noaa - includes hand crank charger for USB powered devices
* Rothco Type III Commercial Paracord - very handy, very strong, very light
* Night Owl Optics XGEN 2X Digital Night Vision Monocular - see in the dark with this inexpensive night vision device
* Special Operations Forces Medical Handbook - better to have and not need than need and not have

This book is the best of it's kind, Highly Recommended!

CFH

Note: I was proved a copy of this book by the author, but that in no way influences my rating or comments.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good but not good enough. 2. November 2012
Von W. Lambdin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Update to the review

I am not going to try to get to a bug out location. I am going to carry two weeks of food for my sister and I in our bug out bags. This is more than long enough for natural disasters, and in a WTSHTF scenario in two weeks the junkies will be better in control of their addiction, Order may be re-instated by then, and the people causing all of the chaos will begin to understand they need people with skills they lack about survival, preserving meat and vegetables for the fall and winter. Then a person who has skill sets such as mine will be worth having around.

There is one area that I strongly disagree with the author. He had ONE compass in his bug out bag. You REALLY need redundancy in compasses. If you think your primary compass is giving faulty data check the direction with another compass. I too carry a Boy Scout compass like the author because a map compass; is one great tool to have! You also do not want to get your pack do heavy it is too heavy. I carry a little piece of wood that is a pattern I use to make alcohol stoves. This piece of wood only weighs at most 1/2 an ounce so I bought several 20 mm button compasses like they issue to SAS British soldiers and Air force pilots and glued a backup compass onto the wood, and on top of the cord lock of my four stuff sacks. These little button compasses only weigh about 1/8th ounce each so adding five backup compasses only added 3/4 ounce of weight to my pack.
-----
Original review.

I agree with most of the material in this book; but there are some issues in this book I have problems with.

The book has the premise of surviving for 72 hours until you get to your bug out lication.

There is one major problem with this concept.

There is no guarantee that the stuff you store in your bug out location will be there when you need it.

I would NEVER bug in, or use a bug out location.

If I were to have more material than I could carry I would break it up into a series of packs, and take a pack and hike out to a remote location near a land mark such as a tree, rock, mountain peak, etc and bury the pack and hike or drive home then a few days or weeks later go bury another bag.

Then WTSHTF I will have multiple packs of food, ammunition, fuel that I could dig up and use to keep me going.

Here are other problems I have with the book.

1. The. Author recommends purifying water by boiling or using water purifying tablets.

I would not recommend either method. The problem with these methods are. Boiling requires fuel. Burning wood causes smoke. Smoke attracts attention. In a survival situation attracting attention can be dangerous. His other recommendation was using water purification tablets. This is not a good idea either because most water purifying tablets. Use iodine. Iodine can be dangerous for people with compromised thyroid glands.

In my bug out bag I carry 3 ozs ofvboth iodine and Clorox to purify water. I have hypothyroidism and iodine is dangerous for me to use.

2. The author recommends MREs. I would deffinately recommend people avoid MREs. Pack what you already eat. In a survival situation with stress that is not the time to eat foods you may or may not like.

Myself I am packing a lot of rice but I eat and like rice. Rice is an amazing grain. It will absorb the flavors it is cooked with, and filling some days I will have plain rice others I will add chicken bouillon , Bear Creek Chilli mix, Bear Creek broccoli and cheese soup mix with the rice I can eat rice every day but it never tastes the same way twice. Instant rice cooks in five minutes meaning it needs little fuel to cook. Lastly 40 servings of rice only weighs about 4 pounds the flavoring enhancers for rice only adds another pound to my pack.

3. He recommends burning wood or using a pressurized stove that you use gasoline, Coleman fuel, or kerosene.

I would NEVER use those fuels.

Wood fire causes smoke. In a survival situation smoke can be seen for miles, and could attract the roving bands you saw after hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, and now the looters in New York and New Jersey after Hurricane Sandra now.

A pressurized stove that burns gasoline, Coleman fuel, or Kerosene will weigh at least 3-4 pounds. A gallon of fuel for the stove weighs 8-9 pounds, and a gallon of fuel will only last 3-4 days of cooking.

I make alcohol burning cook stoves out of soda and juice cans. In these stoves you burn denatured alcohol, Heet in the yellow bottles. These fuels burn cleanly and there is no smoke to attract attention. With these fuels and effic ient stoves you can cook a meal on 1 fl OZ of fuel. A gallon of alcohol, and two of these stoves can cook food for two months if you cook two meals a day. If you carry a VERY efficient stove like the Elite from MiniBull Design, the V8 stiove by Intense Outdoor Gear, the Rollover stove by Smokeater908, or the Cobalt Blue Soloist by Zellph Stoveworks you can cook a meal on 3/4 fl OZ of fuel so your fuel would last 25% longer.

4. In several places he talks of using mirrors, smoke, and bandanas for signaling. Signalling when you lost is one thing but in a bug out situation attracting attention can be deadly.

5. he recommends three ways to start a fire. I Agee with this 1000%! I have three ways to start a fire in my bug out bag.

a. Strike anywhere matches in a 35 mm film canister with a dessicant pack that I recharged in the microwave. Silica gel in desiccant packs absorb any mousture in the canister.

b. Bic lighter.

c. Fire steels I have three fire steels in my pack. Fire steel good for 3000 strikes in the handle of my Mora survival knife, "scout edition" by Light My Fire Sweedish fire steel good for 3000 strikes in my cook kit, then in my survival kit another fire steel 1/2 inch thick by 5 inch long good for 50,000 strikes, then on my key ring has another 3000 strike fire steel by Wilderness solutions

6. He recommends wet Fire fire starters wet fire are good fire starters but way too expensive to use as a fuel source.

7. PET balls. He recommends cotton balls or dryer lint mixed with petroleum jelly. He recommends making these PET balls in advance. I would make them up there on the spot because some if the fibers need to be left uncovered so they can catch fire more.easily.

Another good fire starter is dryer lint, saw dust, and melted candles.

8. Emergency blankets. The author said emergency blankets reflect 90% of the body heat. This is not true. Some emergency blankets reflect 90%. Virtually all of the Mylar emergency blankets only reflect 80% of the body heat so you need to read labels carefully.

9.he recommends carrying the survival knife outside the pack. I would never do that because you do not want to carry expensive tools in plain sight because you do not want the roving bands to kill you for yours tools and food. I will keep everything in my pack and wear old clothes just to stay under the radar.

10. He likes Mora knives from Sweden but he recommends thatbA Mora knife not be the survival knife because it is not full tang and the pommel cannot be used to drive in tent stakes.

Mora knives are the best knife you cam carry the Sweedish steel stays sharp a long time. If I need to hammer in a tent stake I will pick up a rock. I do have two backup knives in my survival kit.

11. Foldable shovel. He recommends a shovel in winter.

A shovel is vital no matter what season you bug out. You need to dig multiple holes, and the easiest way is a shovel. You need a shovel to dig a latrine, and other holes for solar stills.

12. He recommends the glow sticks where you break the glass vial and two chemicals produce light.

I think these are a waste of money and time because they work once for a few hours and you throw them away. I have two.1 a battery operated LED lamp, and a LED light on my keyring.

13. He recommends $500 in cash .

In a bug out situation money will be worthless.

14. Cell phones. He recommends keeping a cell phone with a solar or wind up charger. Because in survival situations survivors have been able to let their family know they were safe via text message.

I plan to keep my android phone because of the kindle app with my 700 kindle books with classic literature, books on gardening, survival guide, etc.

In a survival situation; the more skills you can bring to the table the better chance you have of staying alive.

15. Predators use chaos. This is very true . These predators are the ones that start these roving mobs. While one or two is set up to come through the front door the rest come through the back of the house while the home owner is dealing with the one or two in front. That fact is the one reason why I would never bug in, and those who have underground bunkers are sitting ducks. Throw a plastic bag over the vent, or start a fire around the vent, and wait for the people to come out for air snipers can easily pick them off.

16. He recommends resealable plastic bags to hold water. I

f you do this place bags in a safe place in your pack. You do not want them punctured, and do not fold the bags because the plastic becomes stressed at the creases, and could leak when you need it the most..

17. He recommends carrying water, food and fuel for your bug out,

I will carry food and fuel but I will not waste my energy carrying water. I will have enough water for 1 or 2 days . I will purify the water I need an hour or two before I need it.

I hope I gave you things to consider.
