It has been a busy year for the preparedness community with many worldwide and local events testing our resolve.  Looking back at 2014 we can remember the rise of Ebola and ISIS as well as the civil unrest around the Ferguson case.

It can be hard choosing what to prepare for and there are so many great resources out there to use to learn the skills you need to be truly ready.  I thought it would be useful to put the most popular preparedness related articles here in one place, not only for The Bug Out Bag Guide, but also from other sites around the web.  I reached out to over 100 preparedness bloggers to see what was their most widely shared article was of 2014.  I got back some interesting results and collected them here for your reference.

I hope you can look back on 2014 and see how your own level of preparedness has grown and look forward to continuing this development thru 2015 and beyond.  Remember as always, Chance Favors The Well Prepared.
