Bug Out Bag / Survival Kit, Walmart Style: 72-Hour Bag for Hurricane Katrina – type situations

Bug Out Bag/ Survival Kit/ Medical Bag/ Disaster Bag made up of only Walmart products. Great to have for hurricane/disaster preparedness.


As the title says, this is a bug-out bag built from items you can find only at Walmart. Total cost is around $200 and the weight is right around 20 lbs. The scenario I was thinking of as I built it was Hurrican Katrina – a situation where you have to get out of town quick and sustain for 72+ hours before relief or help is there. Check it out.
