Bug Out Car Supplies Shopping List

This bug out car kit will give you a good list of supplementary supplies. It’s not quite a bug out bag and it’s not quite a get home bag. This list exists to give you a nice shopping list for luxuries that you wouldn’t take on foot. But, they’d be nice if your car can do the carrying for you.

Car filled with bug out car supplies.

Weight is such an important consideration when we plan. It’s the primary factor of what you can and can’t take with you. There are ton’s of items like tents, or iron cook-wear, that are just too heavy to consider.

I’ve got a good article about what kind of vehicle you should bug out in, and this folds in. If your car has more storage space, then you can take more fun stuff with you!

This will also include some car specific gear. If your car’s coming with when you bug out, then you’ll want some supplies for it. Cars can take a lot to keep them going. You don’t want to be caught empty handed if your car’s having problems.
