Survival GEAR you NEED for the UNEXPECTED (YOUR RIG as a PLAN B)

Survival GEAR YOU NEED for the UNEXPECTED may have sounded like a crazy title two years ago. But, EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS has become a hot topic in the past year and few months. Many of us OVERLANDERS already have SURVIVAL GEAR on our OVERLAND RIGS. Most of it is essential CAMPING GEAR and EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT that we use on all of our OVERLAND 4×4 WILDERNESS ADVENTURES. Some of us take it for granted, while others may not even have thought of this GEAR. EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS, FOOD STORAGE, and SURVIVAL GEAR are- frankly- just a part of most people’s OVERLANDING kit.

Some refer to this GEAR YOU NEED as a BUG OUT BAG, a GO BAG, SURVIVAL KIT, or even “EVERY DAY CARRY” (EDC) bag. Regardless of what you call it, every OVERLANDER should think of their OVERLAND RIG as a “Plan B” when the UNEXPECTED EMERGENCY happens. We believe this mindset is crucial for the SURVIVAL of you and your family when the UNEXPECTED happens- regardless of whether it’s human-made or a wake-up call from mother nature. You should always BE PREPARED! #survival #gearyouneed #bugout

  1. Great video with great advice, Mike. Things don’t always go with the plans and one must be able to react appropriately to the situation. I was fortunate to have received extensive training in emergency medicine and survival in the Air Force as an IDMT/Air Rescue Technician. I taught BuddyCare/Survival, EMT and CPR for AHA and the Red Cross. My Jeep SUV is one large survival kit with a comprehensive trauma kit I put together myself. Our bug out bags and get home bags have survival kits within the contents. The most important aspect of survival and providing medical assistance is training and practice. I’m proud to be a member of Overland Bound and with leaders like you this organization will only grow and prosper in experience.
