If you need to bug out because SHTF and you have a family, have you given any thought on how to share gear with them?

It’s crucial to have redundancy amongst your family members, but don’t go overboard.  One of the key messages I took away from the article is to carry redundant capability, but not redundant gear. It’s so true. I remember a camping trip I went on when I was in the Boy Scouts, everyone had matches but not one of us brought a pot to boil water or cook our food. It was cold, uncooked oatmeal for breakfast that morning. If we had packed with redundancy in mind, at least one of us would have had a pot.

In a survival situation things are always changing; not everything  is going to work out as planned. Even the most pre-planned strategy can be undermined. What happens if you are on a business trip away from your family and SHTF? Does your family have the items they need in their bag, and the skills to utilize them?

If you’re not sure, Graywolf from Graywolf Survival has put together a must read list of 5 tips for distributing your gear with your family when SHTF.
