Say you’re a city dweller planning for the apocalypse. Obviously your 30th floor apartment is not an ideal location for living out the end of the world. It’s hard lugging water up 30 flights of darkened stairs while fighting off marauders on every flight. But it’s even harder when all the water in town is dominated by gangs of thugs who have taken the opportunity to exploit the chaos by becoming king-pins of life giving essentials like water and gasoline.
Anyone looking for the evidence of these types of behaviors should look at what happened after Hurricane Sandy along the coasts of New York and New Jersey. Thugs roamed the hallways of the Far Rockaways, and shortages and fear gripped the Jersey shore. So, needless to say, getting out of town is a great idea.
You need a bug-out base camp. This can come in handy as a vacation home or hunting cabin during the times before and after any potentially world ending events occur. But the real motivation for buying a parcel of land up a mountain road away from civilization is having a fall back spot to which you can retreat when the city is entering a chaotic phase.
But no self-respecting amateur survivalist wants to be caught without the creature comforts, so you must pack your base camp with awesome tech and gear that will allow you to ride out the end of the world in relative comfort. This countdown is a list of essential items you should invest in for your own bug-out base camp.
Number 10 on my Bug-Out Basecamp Essentials countdown is the item you’ll need first as you flee the city, a rugged pack to fill with your precious possessions, food, water and supplies for the trip. The pack I’ve chosen for you is the Eberlestock G4 Operator Pack. The pack holds 4,700 cubic inches of cargo, including a rifle or shotgun in a specialized scabbard. The Eberlestock G4 Operator is made for military scout/sniper use, but will be great for any civilian looking for the best pack they can get for survival.
