This is the fourth installment of the Evacuation Preparedness Kit Series. The first post, on Evac Prep Basics is here, and the second post, which introduces the Evac Prep Master List is here. The third post, and the first post on the list review is here. This post will pick up where we previously left off in reviewing the categories on the Master List.

In this post we’ll be discussing the items in the different categories on the Master List. If you haven’t seen the list yet, you can access it here.
As we go through these categories, keep in mind that your 72 hour kit will be more like packing for an extended hiking trip whereas your Evacuation Kit will be more like packing for an extended camping trip. Also keep in mind that redundancy and the ability to shed your larger kits and still be able to survive with your smaller kits is critically important. You may find yourself in a scenario where you have bugged out with your Evacuation Kit, but for whatever reason you have to ditch most of it and go on foot.

This is the second post in a series, the first post covers Evacuation Preparedness basics and can be read here.
Previously, I briefly introduced the Mother of all Evacuation Lists. This list is the result of reviewing well over 100 Bug Out Bag, 72 Hour Kit and G.O.O.D. bag lists and building a master list from them. The new master list can be found here. The link will take you to a Google Spreadsheet which is what we’ll be using for now. I’m hoping to get feedback from readers on other items that should be included which I’ll add to the list. By the end of the series I’ll post an excel file that you can download and store or share. In the meantime, feel free to share the link to the spreadsheet. In this post we’ll start going over the list and get familiar with it.
“Ready for Anything”
That’s our Motto, this series will focus on how to live it.
Or at least, it will focus on some ideas on how to live ‘Ready for Anything’. Specifically we’ll be looking at Evacuation Kits – commonly known as 72 Hour Kits, BOBs (Bug Out Bags), G.O.O.D. (Get Out Of Dodge) Bags among other names, all of which are similar but have distinctive differences. This series will explore all over the Preparedness Rabbit Hole as we discuss multiple methods for Evacuation Preparedness and/or Shelter In Preparedness – which are similar yet critically different.
