    I'm aghast at the number of members who forget to include Bacon in their bug out bags...

    Bacon has many used...
    Fire starter
    Lube for patches on your black powder piece
    Food
    Barter ( I mean who has enough bacon?)
    Bait ( you can catch monkeys with a complete BOB if used right....)
    First aid
    Repair ( you can bait animals to make leather)
    Self defense...
    If you hide the bacon in a partners pack the bears will chase them...

    Can you think of more?

    Actually bacon fat was used on burns way back when.

    I agree this may be a joke but there is a lot of truth to it. Bacon was definitely a staple that had value.
