The Bug Out Bag has become as essential part of preparing for any major disaster, be it natural, societal, political or economic. Being ready at a moment’s notice to “Bug Out” or Get Out of Dodge quickly with enough survival gear to maintain your health and well being in a chaotic environment is step one on the survival list. What to include in that bag could mean the difference between life and death for you and your family, so adequate thinking and careful gear choice are important!
I have always liked coconuts… especially dried coconut flakes added to just about anything. But I never really fell in love with the coconut until I went to Brazil. It was on the beaches along the ‘Litoral Norte’ (the coastline just north of Sao Paulo) that I began drinking fresh coconut water because, well, everybody seemed to be enjoying it and it tasted good! But what happened next was that I also began to feel much better.
