    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
    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.

    Grease is the LAST thing you want to put on burns

    Bacon fat, NOT grease is a very good barrier to prevent infection on burns If you don't have anything else.

    Colloidal silver is best for burns, of all degrees, and most any thing else as well for that matter.
    As for bacon ,
    when i was a kid an older friend told me of an adventure he had going across the desert in a model A .
    it began to knock so they dropped the pan and removed the rod caps and put bacon rind in the bearings and ran the car far as they could, and did it over and over till they got across the desert .
    This lesson fast forward about 30 years ago ,I was with my Boss delivering a boat to las Vegas . abut 11 miles away from Whisky Peats the right front inner wheel bearing went out on the 4wheel drive for truck hauling a boat . so I took a section of my belt and all the grease we could find, and replaced the missing rollers with the leather ,and we drove to Whiskey Peats and it never got hot .

    Bacon isn't us.usually listed because that's like listing air or the clothes you will be wearing - it's just assumed that you are bringing bacon.
