Benjamin Franklin once said, “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”
If you’re a homesteader, then you’re already prepared for an array of disasters. You no doubt have food preserved from your garden, herbs and oils in case someone gets sick, and tools to fix or build important structures.
But what happens if you have to evacuate? If your homestead is endangered by wildfires, massive storms, or anything else that could force you to leave, would you be able to throw everything you need into the car and “get out of dodge” in a timely manner?
That is the purpose of a bug out bag (and a bug out plan). And bugging out is just one aspect of emergency preparedness.
