The only way to survive a violent attack and emerge victorious against evil is to train for it and respond to it with greater justified and completely moral violence.

As with all other systems mentioned, the final value of your Bug Out Bag depends on your dedication to it. The water is only any good if you change it out at regular intervals and keep the storage system clean. The food will only be good if you change it out within the recommendations on the packaging.
