Some fellow Utah prepper’s have reached out to me to get you, my readers, in on designing an awesome new product. It’s called a Bug-Out Cart™. I know for a fact this is a product that I plan on using once it’s done with production. Feel free to check out the specs below and answer their 7 question survey for a chance to win a basic 2-person 72 hour food kit, courtesy of Family Storehouse.
An Intro to Bug-Out Cart™
So you finally have all the necessary “bug-out gear” to keep you and your family safe. Phew, that’s a relief! Now… if you could only find a realistic way of carrying all this gear for your entire family! I know my little toddler isn’t going to be able to carry his gear; in fact I’ll probably be carrying him too! Let’s take a look at our options.
What about one of those nifty garden carts? It’s got a grand total of 8 inches of ground clearance… good luck pulling any real amount of weight with one arm over rough terrain anyway! Forget that one.
What about a bike trailer, like the one’s you can put your kids in! Well, what happens if the road is too crowded and dangerous? And you realize the chances of them being clear the entire way to your safe zone are slim to none, surely you’ll have to go off road at some point – and good luck trying to pull that awkward thing by hand! Not to mention they can only carry 100 lbs.
The ideal cart would be light and very mobile. It would easily carry enough gear for a family of 4. It stores easily in your house and will navigate most hiking trails. It’d need to be a Swiss Army Knife of carts, so you can carry a wide variety of tools and gear that are easily accessible. It’d be versatile, able to be pulled by 1 hiker, 1 biker, or a 4-wheeler. It’d have enough ground clearance for off-road capabilities and big enough tires to crawl over most debris. It could easily navigate steep terrain with mountain bike styled hand brakes. All while keeping your gear weather proofed and concealed.
We bring to you the Bug-Out Cart™ – Designed by prepper’s, for prepper’s.
