Hi today welcome back my friends i have Made all kinds of changes regarding my Preparation status for the end of the World boogaloo zombie apocalypse all That stuff so if you're a preparedness Guy you're watching the right video Today because i want to be able to show You some of what i've got it's going to Help some of you out a lot as we think Through how to prepare for a future bad Things happen we'll be ready and if they Don't happen we'll just have a lot of Cool camping supplies and stuff so Pretty cool there no video sponsor today We just asked you to check out our Website warrior poet supply co right There you see it up on screen it looks Lovely and all kinds of body armor you See our network with our streaming Service you can check that out and all Kinds of Cool stuff and so if you want to be able To check things out highly encourage you To support us over there lots of Emergency preparation stuff and medical Stuff and belts and Holy cow lots of good stuff so make sure You check it out there it wasn't Terribly long ago when i made a video on How i was ditching my bug out bag and That upset a lot of people on the Internet because hey i was proud of my Back and you may be proud of your bag Too and you get to keep your bug out bag

I'm not going to tell you you have to Throw it in the river or anything it's Just i want you to think through Logically what are what are the things That you're really preparing against for Me with the family it just wasn't really A tenable strategy to be able to have me With a bug out bag for all of them or Even just kind of everyone with their Bug out bag because the grass isn't Always greener we've got all of our life Here and it's not just all of our Different preparations the area that we Know all of our neighbors i mean like I'm friends with cops and ems in our Community and so it's like man i would Rather bed down here now there's Sometimes where you do have to get out Of dodge say you live on the coast and You got a hurricane moving towards you Probably don't want to bug in in that Scenario or maybe you live in downtown Atlanta or new york city someplace Densely populated area you've got to be Able to get out of that place uh in a Hurry and so those are places when a bug Out bag makes sense however i've made Major updates i've kind of ditched the Idea of a bag all together and i want to Catch you up to what i've got now so Let's uh move deeper into my garage We're just standing here because the Cool frame shot and uh our Videographer really wanted to put that

On screen so good job way to go bro you Made the good call so let's push in [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] All right guys so first i'm going to go And relive some stuff that i still have In place this is like a get home bag it Goes in my truck and it's filled with All kinds of stuff of radios spare Clothes Cooking set fishing accessories this Thing that has all kinds of just trash Bags lighters matches 550 cord led Lights that kind of stuff and i got big Knives all the normal kind of bug-outish Stuff that you would expect i've got in This so this kind of lives in a truck This is as close as i have to an actual Bug out bag however it's really more Suited for going camping or something Like that so i got my hydration and all The normal survival gear things you Would expect in kind of a traditional Bug out bag But it's a little bit more of Grab-and-go for hunting or camping or Something like that i love this bag we Have this bag on our website so if you Like this thing and it's got all the Kidney pads uh probably my favorite pack Out there i've got three different Ebberly stocks this is my favorite and i

Think it's the gunslinger 2. anyway Check it out on our website if you like It but the the big takeaway here is i've Got this scarab thing that comes With the bag so i can put uh you know Like a long range precision gun in there Or something like this In and it's not affecting my back at all And it's really easy to get so you don't Have to Tote your gun in your hand so anyway Awesome love the bag but really what We're into now is i do the boxes and This isn't just our complete grab-and-go This is a garage i can't control Temperature in here so i've got all Kinds of emergency storage food i've got My guns and my ammunition too which i Just frankly didn't feel comfortable With storing it in my garage even though This is secured surveilled and Wired into alarm systems i still just Didn't feel very comfortable with that So this is a piece i'd say if all of a Sudden we had to get out of dodge and It's hard for me to think of a scenario Where we are all of a sudden Loading up and getting out of dodge but We could i've got my truck i've got a Flatbed trailer i've also got an Enclosed trailer and with about 30 Minutes or an hour notice i could load Up all my different boxes with survival Gear i could also grab a bunch of my

Storage food Ammunition and guns and i bet we could Be very very well suited out in a very Short amount of time now that means i'm Really anchored into vehicles i got to Go expeditionary however i think that's Just a little bit more realistic if We're going to play the thought Experiment of all the things that could Happen and the different contexts that I'm entertaining i think bug out boxes For where we're at uh makes a good bit More sense so i wanted to go through Just some of this to help kind of whet Your appetite of what you could be doing So uh first off Very odds and news This Is don't hey don't judge the purple bro My wife had a hand in this stuff as well But i've got lots of uh Uh cold weather gear Here's my wubby from the military which Is great But uh we're set up with all kinds of Pillows and fleeces and all kinds of Sleeping bags and then lots of Inflatable sleep pads but for my family Of four No matter how cold it gets we're ready With just this box and so when it's Sleep time this is the sleep box And so uh that one's ready to go [Applause]

Uh also this is good in that I don't think it's good for sleeping Bags to be really hard compressed they Lose some of their ability to do warm Things for you when they're just overly Compacted so you let those things Breathe when they're in storage Furthermore i don't want mice and all Kinds of insects to be able to get at it And so being able to seal all my stuff In something like this Is uh going to give me a lot more Time out of my equipment All right This Is an important one This is our cooking bin and so man to be Able to set up real quick With just our little coleman stove here And to be able to do our cooking Uh as so this is mostly just uh cheap Stuff that my wife wouldn't get mad at She wouldn't give me the good stuff uh From the kitchen Uh but all of our just Uh silverware and more pots and bowls And dish soap and paper towels Everything that we need to do our Cooking stuff is all in here Let's see let's see what magical love we Can find here guns are all over the Place at my place So there's that This is just storage gear this is a

Bunch of sandbags So i can make a bunker because i'm a Psychopath uh overflow sleeping bags Uh all some just extra food a good bit Of fuel so this uh two four six uh eight Nine things of just propane to run our Stove with Overflow Plates Hammock A big roll of 550 cord this is just a General overflow it looks like of Survival gear And now it gets put away My kids are small and so where i have More individualized tents this is our Big six-person tent so we all just Uh go in together as a family it's not Particularly great it's cheap but it man It's like a it's a huge uh family room In there it's pretty awesome so lots of Just different tint options that just Wouldn't fit in backpacks or my other Boxes If you look up here this is just going To be general survival gear survival Gear i've got some quick d-bags that i Can grab for cold winter clothes for the Whole family so that's up there This is More range accessories and stuff for Shooting This is like some emp proofed radios and Some electronics that i want to keep
