A Tarp: An Must Have Item For Your Bug Out Bag
Picture this.. You’re out in the middle of nowhere in the woods, night is falling and you still haven’t made yourself a shelter. It’s too late to start one now, and you’ll have to ride the night out bearing all of the elements that nature has to offer. That doesn’t sound like much fun does it?
You never know when and where you will need a tarp so by adding this item to your bug out bag you’re giving yourself a way to protect and cover yourself from the elements. They are light, inexpensive and can be used for many different things. Make a roof, shelter or cover up things that you don’t want to be seen by others. I would suggest getting a camouflage tarp that already has all the grommet holes in it (most of them do). And in case one of the grommets ever let go, I keep a grommet kit in my bug out bag as well so I can add more if and when I need to.
Make sure you add this to your bug out bag. You won’t regret it!
