I’ve written several articles about bug out bags and have made many lists of bug out bag items that most people forget. Which is why I was so surprised when I came across this video about a bug out bag item I’d never considered before.

Why nails? Many reasons. Depending on the size of the nails, they can be used as tent pegs, as fishing hooks, to make a spear, to construct a shelter, to make animal traps, to set up a trip wire, and so forth. Watch the video below for more ideas.
