They may work for some, but I'd advise taking them for a little while to see how your body reacts to them. Me and my gf started them at the same time and we both felt immensely fatigued from day one.

This continued for several days before we both realized what the cause was. I researched it online and sure enough, plenty of people came up with the same problems. I also read that your body really only breaks down the pill and absorbs about 5-10% of the vitamins before it passes through you. I would suggest other means of getting your vitamins.

One often overlooked part of bugging out is basic physical fitness.
Good physical conditioning makes it easier to carry a BOB, it also helps you understand your body and what it needs.

Something else I now keep on hand is cash. I work about 20 miles from home and frequently travel up to 50 miles from home for my job. I keep a GHB ready all the time. The bag came in handy a few years ago during a winter storm and I had to stay in a hotel. I had all my necessities. The hotel was in the middle of nowhere and only had one restaurant nearby that did not accept debit cards. I had food in my bag and ate fairly well. I always had cash in my BOB but now carry it in my GHB and more in my wallet.
