    Bug Out Equipment. What & Why.

    I decided to post this because when I read lists of other people’s modern equipment for bugging out I often see items that I can’t make sense of.

    Frontier Art 3

    Winter Windfall By John Buxton. It was not unusual for settlers to carry too much gear with them into the wilderness. This could slow them down & at times stop them completely, because the ground they were covering would not take the weight, or the oxen/horses were unable to pull the load up...

    My Equipment List.

    This list is obviously not what you would expect a person to carry for a weekend of camping/bushcraft, but it is what I carry on all my treks regardless of the duration. Keith. My Equipment List. .62 cal/20 gauge flintlock fusil. 42 inch barrel. .70 caliber smoothbore flintlock pistol. Gun...

    A Correlation Between The Equipment You Choose And The Skills You Learn.

    A Correlation Between The Equipment You Choose and The Skills You Learn. I believe that when choosing equipment for survival use in the bush, there is more to consider than just ease of use and sustainability. Obviously when preparing for long term wilderness living, you need to choose equipment...

    Cleanliness.

    Do you carry soap in your B.O.B? I carry a bar of soap, but I have also used wood ashes & water for cleaning my hands. Fresh urine from a healthy person is good for cleaning out wounds. Keith.

    Thoughts On Equipment.

    I know there is a lot of good gear out there, & I do not shun all modern equipment, BUT, I do believe that much of what is sold for survival these days is a waste of space, literally. Modern firearms have their place, but for many they are not obtainable without a lot of inconvenience. Modern...
