About The Bug Out Bag Guide

Firstly, thank you for visiting our site!

My name is Chris Ruiz and I created this site to help ordinary people prepare for the uncertainties of the modern day world. From putting together a bug out plan and packing your survival kit using our bug out bag packing list, we hope to be a part of your preparedness journey.

A well-prepared society is the best safeguard against any natural or manmade disaster.

Chris enjoying the great outdoors

I am an avid outdoorsman and have been interested in survival planning and tactics for many years. My training in survival and bushcraft began as a pre-teen in cub and boy scouts where I ultimately became an Eagle Scout and then adult advisor among the troop. After moving away, I continued my learning on my own on various trips and excursions around the world.

The writing for this site comes from a lifetime of experiencing the outdoors and using the types of tools, skills, and tactics discussed here. I have lived in upstate New York, NYC, and currently reside in Sydney, Australia. I am happily married to my incredible wife Amy and together we have a young son whose name is Felix. We camp as often as possible and are in love with the outdoor lifestyle. We are avid fishers, hikers, campers, surfers, scuba divers, spearfishers, and travelers.
