A 72 Hr. Bug-Out-Bag

About: Hey there! 16 year old portrait/travel photographer/guitarist/skateboarder/knife sharpener nut/backpacking enthusiast.

In this instructable, you will learn how to make a bug out bag that should last you 72 hours in a survival situation. I would call this the "Minor's BOB", because anyone under 18 can make this without any special permits or weapons (besides knives).

    Great list! Here are just a few small things that I have in mine to add to your list. Those chemical light sticks, just in case your flashlight fails. Trail markers.

    Thumbs up. Nice list and i think everyone needs something like this, can be used for any disaster scenarios... should include some money.. you don't know when you need it.

    You need to add something for making fire,preferably more than one. And practice on how to use them! Other than that it is not a bad kit, well done
