Bug Out Vehicle (BOV) Chronicles: The Final Post : Series Post #6

Sharing is caring!

It’s been a few months since my last post about the progress of my new Bug Out Vehicle.  Well… I’m happy to announce that it’s finished and I’m really loving it.  So let’s see a before picture to remind you what it looked like when I first got it.

And now….after my modifications.

Pictures speak louder than words so below are a few close up shots.

I’d also like to point out a couple of cool features I added:

I picked up a camo net from www.camonettingstore.com and it hooks perfectly on the roof rack of the truck cap.  I can rig it up in a variety of ways for shade or for camouflage.

Using PVC piping I also attached a camo tarp that I can roll out and rig up in just a few minutes.

I know… I know… this BOV doesn’t blend in with the crowd.

I’ll be the first to admit that I broke the #1 rule of a BOV – BLEND IN WITH THE CROWD.  What I haven’t told you yet, though, is that I outfitted this BOV while writing my new book, BUILD THE PERFECT BUG OUT VEHICLE.

I couldn’t in good conscious write a book about BOVs and not give you some good eye candy.  So, I made a judgement call and tricked it out a bit more than necessary because everyone likes looking at cool pictures, including me.

Like my Mom used to say – it doesn’t matter what she looks like on the outside.  It’s the inside that counts.

This is REALLY true with a BOV.  The outside can look like crap – it’s what’s inside that is important.  It’s critical that the engine and other mechanical parts are reliable and trustworthy.  The survival supplies you pack inside are quantum leaps more important that the paint job or bumpers.  How you outfit your BOV on the inside is what matters most.  Here’s a sneak peak into the back of my BOV.  There way more to discuss about outfitting BOVs than I could ever do in an on-line post.

Build the Perfect Bug Out Vehicle

For those of you who read my first book, Build the Perfect Bug Out Bag, this book is in that same vein.  It is an A-Z manual about choosing and outfitting the perfect BOV.  I leave no stone unturned.  Not only do I discuss different categories and types of BOVs but I walk through everything that you should and shouldn’t consider when outfitting it with maintenance supplies, survival tools, weapons, water, food, etc.  I cover storage ideas and creative ways to work with ‘the vehicle you have right now’.

If you like reading about survival, bugging out and vehicles…

Then I’m sure you’ll enjoy this book.  It’s been many months in the making and took a ton of effort as you can imagine.  I learned a lot along the way as well and share many of those ups and downs.  It seems learning is more about trial and error than anything.
