Experience a 17-mile Bug Out

In this course, Jason Hunt takes his 25-pound Bug Out Bag on an impromptu 17-mile Bug Out. He shares his experience in video and shares the challenges he faces during a grueling walk on a sweltering hot summer day. This is a great learning experience for anyone preparing to BUG OUT.

Join Jamie Boggs as he discusses urban stealth sheltering during a potential evacuation from or passing through an urban landscape. What are abandoned buildings a bad idea? Why is a having a neutral colored poncho in your kit a good idea? This is a very interesting training segment that is rarely covered in survival training.
