JR BUG OUT BAG
There is alot of information in ZSDW about adult team or single person Bug-Out Bags, equipment and survival gear, but almost nothing for ideas on how to equip your family. So this page will be an attempt to start exploring prepping an older child or teenager's B.O.B.
Clothing: Whatever is comfortable to move in for your child but will keep them safe and protected from the elements (and Zombies).
- Heavy (non-cotton) pants with lots of pockets
- Tshirt x 2
- Rain coat
- leather belt
- sneakers (hightops would be better) or hiking boots
- heavy socks x 2
- accesories (kids need to feel like they are in control of what they look like) scarf, bandana, legwarmers, wrist bands, head bands
- Protective gear- Knee Pads, Elbow Pads, Wrist Gaurds, Helmet, Ankle Braces, Shin Guards
- Sunglasses on a lanyard
Carrier or Bag:
- BACK PACK (school style or something comfortable and light weight)
Food & Water: (you carry for survival, kid carries for immediate needs and comfort)
- Plastic Bottle H2O (minimum 1 liter) or lightweight canteen/metal bottle (plus spare plastic bottle)
- Gatoraid mix/ drink mix
- katadyn tabs/ filter straw
- Hard candy/non perishable snack
- Peanut Butter/Granola Bar/Protien Bars
- trail mix/ dried fruit/ nuts
- 1 MRE just add water (small)
Lighting: easy to use, easy to hang on to, and requires no maintenance
- Crank powered or "shake"-powered LED flashlight w/ strap or belt pouch
Information/ Navigation: (depends on age and skill level)
- Map of area laminated
- GPS 3 point Locator /Watch/digital Compass (allows you to save up to 3 current locations and guides you back with just a press of a button)
- Binoculars (lightweight/small)
Communication: (important to teach how to use and establish a channel base to find eachother)
- Walkie Talkies/ 2 way radio /CB
- 5-in-1 Survival tool on lanyard (Container for matches, Compass, mirror, whistle, Flint strker) I removed the lanyard and strung it on more durable paracord .
- Sleeping bag and foam pad
- Swiss Army Knife (knife, fork, spoon, can opener, scissors, etc.) on belt pouch or in pocket
- KNOWLEDGE ( how to open can and heat/make dinner safely)
Fire Starting: (dependability vs. ease of use... whatever you feel comfortable with your child using)
- KNOWLEDGE (how to build a fire)
Entertainment: (pick the favorite and make sure you have batteries that can be re-charged)
- MP3/ipod/nintendo DS/phone etc...
- Favorite Toy
Personal Hygiene: (keep it simple and keep a routine going if possible)
- Hair Brush
- chap stick
- feminine hygiene products (for females)
First Aid Kit/Survival Pouch: (basic for everyday needs)
- Any medication essential to health
- Childrens tylenol/benedryl
- Wet wipes /baby wipes
- Ducttape wrapped around pill container(s)
- Safety scissors
- For my next topic I must stress 2 things:
- 1. Which is more dangerous? Your child having a gun/knife and hurting you or themselves, OR your child left alone in the world with no way to defend themselves or hunt food.
- 2. Can your child operate safely a fire arm and know how and when to use it?
WEAPONS and TOOLS for Suvival : (suggestions for teen/ older child able to safely hunt/defend themselves)
- 410 pump action home-defense shot gun (3 shot magazine, pistol grip, fold out pump-action handle) Combo flashlight/laser sight for ease of use (i.e. point and shoot)
- .22 bolt action rifle w/ ammo seperate pouch.
- Air-pump BB rifle (you can kill a squirrel or rabbit at 30 yards with one!) add a scope for accuracy
- Camp hatchet w/ belt Sheath

410 is a bad choice a kid would enjoy a reduced load 20 even more
Kids that are over ten would enjoy 13 inch lengths.
Stuff like fiochi targets cost more, but well worth it.
Moss bantam and equivalents make great starters
Save heavy loads for hunting.

I have a friend who's 11 and he has a .22 and he knows how to use it. And I think another one of my friends (also 11) knows how to shoot a shotgun. Also most kids would know how to use a melee weapon, I mean, I play baseball. So you could probably teach kids to fire guns.

There have been little to none articles of children in the z pandemic, its a great idea but there are still
things to consider such as, a sleeping bag ,children love the feeling of there own place to sleep in and it may be diffiacult if theres about a hundren zombies close bye.
