The military loves acronyms and so does the survivalist or prepper community. Unfortunately, if you are not prior military or fairly new to prepping all of these abbreviations can be somewhat confusing.

Here’s a list of the most common terms you’ll find associated with Prepper Community.

5 Commonly Overlooked Items for your Bug Out Bag:

1: Survival Guide - No one knows Everything, even if you're retired military, skills we don't use consistently we begin forgetting. 
2: Road Map - A printed map book of your area, state or region could be a life saver. Think No GPS, how would you find somewhere you've never been?
3: Dynamo or Hand Crank Radio
4: Anti-bacteria Ointment. Minor cuts could become deadly if you have no access to medical care or antibiotics.
5: Change of Clothes ROLLED and vacuum sealed to conserve space if possible. May seem simple, but most people don't have a simple change of clothes in their bug out bag.
This is not a complete list, just 5 Commonly Overlooked Items that sometimes seem so simple, we just forget them.
