When most people put there bug out bags together they get the basics. They pack rope, knives,a tent, some matches and maybe a gun. But most people forget the little things that could end being the difference between life or death. So today I am presenting you with what in my opinion are the top 10 forgotten bug out bag items.
1. Anti Diarrhea Medicine. Your diet is going to change drastically and you might be eating things you probably should not be. Nothing will dehydrate you quicker than Diarrhea.
2.Sewing Kit Great for maintaining your clothes and your bag. It also has uses for first aid.
