Hi I am new to this but i just want to start to get some things together to take care of my family in case of an emergency. I am really looking to start putting together my bug out bag, but i have no clue as to what needs to go in them. I look forward to learning more and hope to be prepared one day soon.

Welcome aboard ! Like Clyde said, we kind of need to know what you are prepping for so we can help you out. Do you have any gear ? Are you a hiker or backpacker ? You would be surprised on what you can use with the stuff you have around the house. A lot of good people and good ideas here.

I was mainly wondering if it is better to buy a bug out bag or assemble my own. I really have no idea what all is needed in a bug out bag. But i hope to get alot more education from this site.

I would build one tailored to your needs. My bug out supplies are in totes for easy load into the truck, I do carry a three day get home bag {GHB} all the time. Everyone is different so take a look around and see what works for you.

Thats a good idea ! I have been carrying a GHB for a year or so and i am always using something out of it. It has gotten me and friends out of minor jams many of times. I wont leave home with out it.

Welcome Edge!
You an find an in depth bug bag list under "equipment" 2nd page called "creating a bug out bag"

Personally id agree with buding your own. Not every bug bag is created for your specific needs/climate/or region that is "ready made"
If you need any help, or have any questions, feel free to help, thats what we're here for.
