On this live broadcast of “The Prepping Academy” join Forrest and Kyle as they discuss: everyday carry items, get home bags, and bug out bags. These are literally the backbone of prepping. The items you carry with you can literally make or break your future! Simple items like a bottle opener, lighter, pocket knife, wallet tool cards, etc. are important to have, but there are a lot of items out there now that, being honest, are a waste of money.

This week on “The Prepared Canadian“, we are going back to the topic of food storage, but this time with a twist. We will only take a look at on food item that somehow gets either overlooked or under appreciated…the MRE.
Meals Ready to Eat are not what they used to be. These days they are more nutritious and flavorful than the ones you remember from the Canadian Military from the 70’s. More importantly, these compact and complete meals serve to solve the problem of what to carry in your bug out bags, car kits, or on a day trip to the deer blind or fishing hole.
One company that supplies preppers as well as emergency response teams is Meal Kit Supply, who were kind enough to send me a sample to review for you. We will dissect this product from the case package down to the condiment kit and look at each portion of food and drink inside as I had a panel of expert food tasters known as “my kids” give everything a thorough taste test.
As if that weren’t enough to fill a show, we will also take a look at how you can put together your very own MREs with a few supplies and some common food items you likely already have in the pantry.
“Bug out Bags” Water, Food, First-Aid Kit and toilet paper. What should you include in your Go Bag, GOOD (get out of dodge) Bag, 72-hour kit, Egress Bag, E&E bag, grab bag, bail-out bag and so on? Considering weight what are the necessary items to carry. Do women need different items than men? Join us on “Preparing For Life’s Storms” as and share your knowledge on what should be considered in a bug out bag or get home bag? Join BexarPrepper November 20th at 8pm central time as we talk about the primary items no one should be without.
With all the things that Preppers are told they should have and all the things that we do have and are bug out bags, how much of it a necessity and how much of it is just wasted space? In this show “In Time of Disaster” for a while we will discuss the different items that you should carry in your bug out bag and as always I hope you will call in with your comments and suggestions for what you believe to be important items for your bug out bag.
