    Could You Build An Effective 72 Hour Bug Out Bag Using Only Walmart?



    Assuming you would ever consider bugging out, would it be possible to build a 72 hour bug out bag using only Walmart as a source for the supplies?

    If you were on an extremely limited budget, what would you start with?

    For here in Texas...Most definitely yes you could make a decent 72 hour bag using Wally World as your only source. Alaska or in the north along the Canadian Border...maybe not. In fact 75% at least of the stuff in my bug out bag came from Wally World! The Back Pack and Cold Weather Sleeping Bag part though is where I would probably opt to purchase somewhere else. While I dont need the upmost in quality on a striker steel, food , knife or cook ware etc...I dont see anything at the 8 or so Wally Worlds here that I would consider to be acceptable even for entry level prepping when it comes to a bag to carry it or sleeping bag. For a Cold Weather Sleeping Gear and a Backpack, I think you seriously need to look else where or you'll likely be left wanting. Thats the wrong time to be wanting!!!

    What would I put in it? Thats like asking "how long is a piece of string" as my Dad would so affectionately say...man that used to piss me off as a kid! Did the power go out in a weather storm or are we talking Katrina here and I need to get to higher ground on the other side of town? How minimalistic are you willing to get? What I would consider adequate when I was 19 is a hell of a lot different than what I would consider these days now that I am much older. How much skill you got at scrounging and woodsmanship and foraging is another huge factor to consider. What a Country Boy needs to survive and what the typical Metro-Sexual Snowflake today would need to survive is quiet different!

    I started out with a 72 hour bag when I got into prepping....it soon evolved into a full blown Bug Out Bag over time.

    I would like the name of the person who came with this dumbass question. Walmart really? I wouldn't buy this weeks grocery's at Walmart, much less items that are integral to my stance against the inevitable domination of this once great Nation.
