    It's only for 72 hours. Does it need to be the latest special operator gear? My question do really need anything to survive 72 hours? Unless it's 105 degrees or -20 below extreme conditions. The average person in good condition can easily go 72 hours with just the clothes on their backs. No it wouldn't be fun but it could be done.

    Could you build an effective BOB from The Wal Mart?

    Yes, First, recruit some illegals from The Wal-Mart and get them to carry your stuff. I suspect bugging out is tough business so get some illegals, most of them don't complain much and if they do let them know in a loud voice that you don't speak meskin.

    Good question.

    I have never found anything there I'd say is high quality; and I know they sell apple.com products there and there is no difference but I haven't bought electronics at a walmart before. For a bug out bag you can get food and cheap chinese made goods - that's about it. Walmart is advertising they will start getting some things made in America but I have no idea what they imply on that.

    As for the impact on small stores its real, but so is the reality they have saved millions of American's billions of dollars - money that has been used on other businesses, used to start businesses and create jobs.

    While I rarely shop at WalMart and avoid the non-USA made items WalMart sells they did grow that large using principals most of us support, compition in the free market. Wal-Mart just did it so well and thought so big they ran many smaller businesses into the poor house.

    However, newer free market shopping stores (like Amazon) using the internet may make Wal-Mart a "has been". The free economy allows for new and "better" retail methods to prevail.

    Don't we all cry for a more free America and capitalism? sometimes progress sucks...

    Pay attention Prepared One ..... did I mention anything about giving up the finer things in life? Of course not, you may continue your indulgence in hookers, bourbon, and blow. After all .... I did say life was about choices.

    Yes. In my Walmart, they have lots of survival supplies and camping gear. You can get a firearm, a good pack, several days worth of food, shelter, fire kit, sleeping bag, knives, hatchets, axes, and even hunting clothes and winter camo if you are feeling creative. White cotton sheets cut into strips, and sewn onto a self made poncho works wonders here in MN. So Yes. You can make a bug out bag in Walmart.

    Fire food shelter and protection, first aid. Yes.. You can get that at Wally World.
    But, if you make a list, make it work for you.. I have 2 girls, a wife. Bug out bags will be different for all.
