Bug-out bags (BOB) are a ubiquitous part of survival preps. But that doesn’t mean you can be complacent if you have a BOB.

Why do you need a BOB?

A well-prepared BOB has almost everything you need to survive, with some exceptions. You need to choose each item carefully because you can’t carry a bag that’s too heavy, especially if you’re in a hurry to reach your bug-out location.

Once your BOB is packed, you must hone your skills to ensure that you can deal with whatever happens when disaster strikes.

Now comes the hard, but not impossible, part: learning how to survive if you suddenly lose your meticulously-chosen gear.

Dealing with a lost BOB

Since your BOB has what you need to survive for at least 72 hours after SHTF, it can be scary to think about what you’re going to do if you lose your gear.

Keep in mind that relying too much on gear or equipment will only hinder your progress as you prep.

It doesn’t matter how or why you lose your BOB. The important thing is ensuring that you can rely on your wits and skills to survive even with just a pocketknife in your hand.

Start by honing your first tool: your brain. While things are quiet, practice and prepare for a scenario that you might have to face without a BOB.
