having a bug out trailer could save your family keepsakesMany preppers tend to get focused on “end of days” scenarios when they envision having to bug out and leave their home but there are many other reasons that may force you to grab your bug out bags and hit the road. One that comes to mind right now is the threat of wildfires. I live on the west coast and this year is one of the driest years we have had in decades.

Why You Should Keep Your Car's Gas Tank Full at All TimesAs preppers, we all know that the day may come when we have to leave our homes and seek shelter in a safer location. Preppers call this “bugging out”. It would be ideal if we could stay in our homes during a major emergency since most of the supplies that we store are kept there but the fact is that at some point, we might actually have to bug out.

Hopefully you have taken the time to prepare a bug out bag (72 hour kit) for each member of your family. If you have, you can quickly throw it in your vehicle and be on your way.
