Bugging Out

So becoming a minimalist has led me down other paths. Not sure how, but I’ve been doing a lot of “survival” research. Things like if a huge natural disaster were to happen type deal. Now I want to be prepared for such a situation and create a bag that would have all the essential gear I would need, also known as a bug out bag. So here is my dilemma…
