Maxpedition Vulture II Backpack Giveaway

Some of you may have read a few of my Emergency Preparedness articles that I wrote a while back if not please check out Being Prepared while Pregnant or with a Newborn or 10 Steps for Getting Prepared for an Emergency. Since it is Fall and Winter will soon be here I am beginning to think and plan for Ice and Snow storms. We are spoiled living less then 5 minutes from Walmart, Aldi, and Kroger BUT if the power or internet were to go out at the stores you would not be able to buy anything! If the power went out at home then we would be up a creek without a paddle.

Now is the time to think, plan, and prepare for your future and upcoming season’s. Do you have enough supplies for 2 days, 2 weeks, or 2 months? Do you have ways to keep yourself dry and warm? Do you have food and water? Do you have a way to keep your children, pets, or family safe? These are all questions you will need to answer for yourself.

Today I have a giveaway to help with the idea of having a Bug out Bag. Maybe you need to get away from disaster, storm, etc. This backpack is a great addition to any family who needs to pack items for camping, sports, trips, or an emergency. I think I would have it packed for my hubby in case he became stranded at work.

Whether you use this backpack for camping, hiking, cross-country skiing, or as an emergency pack, you are sure to love it. On the off-chance that you already have too many quality backpacks, this would make a fabulous Christmas or Hanukkah present for someone special!
