The Bug Out Vehicle
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”
When it comes time to get outta Dodge, the only thing more important than knowing where you are going is having a way to get there. Despite all the worry about EMPs and such, the automobile is still the best choice for this purpose for many reasons including speed, cargo space, and secondary uses such as temporary shelter.
This week, I’ll discuss what to look for when considering a BOV as well as what you’ll need to put into it both for everyday breakdown needs as well as in a bug out situation. I’ll tell you about what fluids to keep and how much as well as some special products available to help with temporary fixes that you could be faced with roadside. I’ll even give you a tip about making your own inexpensive traction aids with some wood scraps you may have lying around or can easily find on a scavenge trip.
Other accessories abound to fit that ultimate Bug Out Vehicle.
