Introduction: Budget Bug Out Bag

About: Hi Guys, My name is sleepydude but my real name is Alex, i hope to do projects related to prepping and archery :D

Hi Guys, I am doing a very basic bug out bag for around 50-60 bucks

This bag a gift for a family member who wants to get in to prepping and bushcraft, so i spent 50 bucks to get him in to it :D

I didn't add an axe/hatchet or knife to this due to it up to the person to decide what they want and it would off costed more, i would recommend a something like a mora companion if u wanted a good budget bushcraft knife

I also did a video on the bag if u prefer to watch the video do so or u can keep on reading it here

Stuff That I Had And Decide To Chuck In

Plastic Bottle - u can find one in your home most likely

Aluminum bottle - u may have one but i see these go 5-30 depends on were u look

Step 2: The Bag

It is has two compartments a main one and a small one and two side pouches for water bottles also the backpack straps are adjustable and have some padding not bad for 15 bucks :D

-The main one contains the tarp, duct tape pegs, flashlight, batterys and has the spam in it or what ever actual food items in there

-The smaller one has the lighter the knife, fork spoon, paracord and lighter

-The drink bottles go in the two side pouches

Step 3: Shelter

The tarp can be used as bivi bag / sleeping bag or as a shelter to help protect u form rain, wind, frost and hot days for shade

-To make a survival bivi bag fold the tarp in half and fold it again then
duct tape around the edges to prevent rain or cold air getting in

-If you are planning on using it often add a sleeping bag to it or another tarp, There plenty of videos on youtube showing how to setup a tarp for a shelter, with the pegs and paracord u should have no problems with it

Step 4: Food and Water

-Start of with the spam it can be eaten cold or cooked and has a good shelf life, You can cut it in slices and cook on a stick that why no mess kit or anything to cook it on

-If your not a fan of spam there are other canned food such as chicken and tuna or u can buy something else if u like i add it due to it was on sale and i like it :D

-The little basic cutlery set, is handy for eating enough said

-Also aluminum bottle can store and boil water also the plastic bottle has bleach in it

-The lighter for fire it uses warmth and cooking or boiling water

Step 5: Power and Flashlight

-24 AA and 12 AAA for 6 bucks great price and handy to have

-The flashlight is not the same as that one i brought the one i brought was brighter so swapped it with an old one lol XD
