Everyone has different opinions and thoughts about survival gear, kits, and bug-out bags. There is no perfect BOB for everyone. But you can make your bug-out bag better by multiples if you pack a few unusual survival items that most forget.
You can make yours much better for you personally by packing the unique items that you want.
In this post, we talk about a few items you can pack to make the situation just a little better.
7 Unusual Survival Items You Need In Your BOB
Packing the essentials for your bug-out bag is good, yes. But let’s not forget the unusual, uncommon, and even weird items that would benefit us. Even if they only benefit us personally.
Take the edge off the emergency that happened earlier, make sure you pack your cigarettes. They’re not the best idea for long term survival, but if you’re a smoker. Pack em.
If you don’t have any heat or lighting sources after bugging out, carrying beeswax in your bag will at least enable you to make DIY candles. Not the best source for light or warmth, but grants you an adequate amount.
There’s always time for a drink.
You still get a sweet tooth even during a natural disaster. And when the Vodka runs out, candy is a nice replacement.
Poison Ivy Remover
If you’re allergic to poison ivy, you know how much it irritates you.
Notepad and Pencil
Alone in the wilderness and your head will be filled with dozens of good ideas. Have a pen and paper handy so you can write them down.
When bugging out, we need more energy than ever. Pack your favorite energy supplements or drinks like 5-hour energy for the extra charge. I’m addicted to Monster energy drinks, so I pack two of them in my bags.
To recap, don’t forget about the unusual items that you won’t see on your typical “bug-out bag list”.
Thin about some items that you want to pack for yourself. I always pack a book, pen, and paper.
